  1. I love Jeff Bridges!! My favorite actor of all time. And I get the feeling he's a wonderful guy. Happily married and a dad, a devoted conservationist and a democrat/progressive. Great sense of humor. He doesn't take himself very seriously. and GREAT hair. Happy 70th Jeff! and many MANY more. BTW Still sexy as hell after all these years. And BTW In camera circles he's considered an expert at the Wideluxe, which is a difficult camera to use.

  2. Why have someone on the show, and then cut them off mid conversation, arsehole? Jeff Bridges is awesome, by the way.

  3. Jeff Bridges is one of my favourite people of all time and seeing him always be happy genuinely makes me feel happy!

  4. Lebowsky and Snoop?…that's is something I'd looooveee to see and hear ¬¬. I love this man, wonderful actor, great voice, funny, great guy! And he's having fun with cameras like me 😛

  5. I would love to go to Jeff's birthday celebration, heading to John Sheahan's 80th in Dublin on 6th December with surprise guests, possibly Glen & Bono you'd never know…..

  6. Aw man, if only I could have met him before his wife. I could have died a happy lady. What a gorgeous, gorgeous man.

  7. That joke about the pic and Kimmel's hand is soooooo funny! X))
    And Bridges is such a great artist… one of the best actors ever.

  8. Jimmy is losing his mind lately. He's being down right stupid, disrespectful, & it's a real test of the guests graces. One interview didn't allow comments, it was that bad, I wasn't surprised.

  9. ?Hi, I’m Brittney Hill 😀 . I really enjoyed your upload! I’m still living in Orange County, California, within the city of La Habra right now… however, I will, very soon, for the last and final time, be moving to the county of Los Angeles, where Hollywood is! I’m moving there literally, as soon as possible. Yay, me ! I’m literally doing everything by myself right now, so please excuse me, so I’m proud that I figured out my Destiny. I am social climbing right now so I am going to marry the first rich man that I see 😀 ! If you want to talk about my Destiny, however, my destiny is to get married to, Thomas John Ellis (he is a, famous, British, actor, on a T.V. show, in America, called, Lucifer.), to become his Wife and a Mother (for the first time), to his 3 daughters. Then, I am also going to, finally, become a, famous, American, method, actress. I was born to do all of these things :D, so it is in my Destiny. I’m 31 years old, I’m not just any Millennial, I’m, THAT, Millennial! . I’m still Middle class, and I am social climbing. You can join me wherever you see me in person 😀 ! See you on the big screen 😀 ! Family. Love. Love. Love. .

  10. This guy can puke in boxers at 20 or 60 years (ref Lightfoot and Crazy Heart) or wear a batik shirt like this under a jacket and he always looks so damn cool …when obviously most of us would look totally ridiculous

  11. Wow I'm seriously confused on why there's dislikes… fuckin' sour ass individuals. Jeff Bridges is authentic, and plays to the audience…that's just awesome. I would've loved to have been there. Ofc seeing Snoop would've been dope too ??

  12. I have such a strong and eternal love for Jeff Bridges that I loved Jeff Bridges before it was cool to love Jeff Bridges. So… in summary… I wholeheartedly ♥️ * LOVE * ♥️ Jeff Bridges!
