Jeff Bridges, the legendary actor known for his laid-back personality, recently made an appearance on Conan O’Brien‘s talk show. During the interview, Bridges discussed his love for the movie “The Big Lebowski” and how he channeled the character, the Dude.

One interesting tidbit that Bridges shared was that he actually wore the shoes that the Dude wears in the movie. These shoes, known as jelly shoes, were his own personal pair. It was a fun and quirky detail that showed Bridges’ dedication to his role.

The conversation then shifted to costume design, and Bridges mentioned Mary Zri, the costume designer for both “True Grit” and “The Big Lebowski.” Bridges revealed that he likes to have the costume designers go through his own closet to find items that align with the characters he plays. In this case, Zri found his jelly shoes and incorporated them into the Dude’s wardrobe.

Bridges also shared a funny anecdote about stealing a T-shirt from his brother, Bo. The T-shirt had a picture of a famous Japanese baseball player, whose name Bridges couldn’t remember at the time. It was a playful moment that highlighted Bridges’ sense of humor.

During the interview, Bridges was asked if he ever channels the Dude in his own life. He admitted that he doesn’t typically bring his characters home with him, except for one instance while filming “Jagged Edge,” where he played a psychopath. Bridges’ wife chimed in, jokingly suggesting that he might have some psychopathic tendencies in real life. It was a lighthearted moment that showcased the couple’s playful banter.

The interview concluded with a clip from “True Grit,” where Bridges wore an eye patch throughout the entire filming. O’Brien asked if wearing the eye patch affected Bridges’ depth perception. Bridges humorously replied that it would have been a bigger problem if the horse had been wearing an eye patch. It was a well-received joke that highlighted Bridges’ wit and ability to find humor in any situation.

Overall, Jeff Bridges‘ appearance on Conan O’Brien‘s talk show was entertaining and offered fans a glimpse into his laid-back personality and dedication to his roles. With his charming demeanor and funny anecdotes, Bridges proved once again why he is regarded as a beloved figure in the entertainment industry.
