Famous quotes by Jeff Bridges
A large part of acting is just pretending. You get to work with these other great make-believers, all making believe as hard as they can.Jeff Bridges
Any role that big is going to be a challenge for any actor, but for an actor of a young age, it's going to be even tougher.Jeff Bridges
As far as the lack of hits goes, I think perhaps it's because I've played a lot of different roles and have not created a persona that the public can latch on to.

I'm very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we're all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film.Jeff Bridges
I'm very much into the costuming of any character that I portray and it's one of the great things about making movies is it's a collaborative art form so you get all these artists who are looking specifically about for this instance your character's costume and what that might tell about your character.Jeff Bridges
If you change partners every time it gets tough or you get a little dissatisfied, then I don't think you get the richness that's available in a long-term relationship.Jeff Bridges

Normally, I love to go to the movies and when I see a character portrayed by different actors at different ages, it kind of pops a little bit for me. It brings me out of the movie experience. Now we have the technology to cure that.Jeff Bridges
