"I don't know how it is for women or for other guys, but when I was young and in my 20s, I had a fear of marriage."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Jeff Bridges on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Jeff Bridges on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Jeff Bridges on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Jeff Bridges on Oscar Wilde

"One of the tough things about being an actor, probably the hardest thing, is getting your foot in the door, and my father handled that for me at a very early age."
"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."
"For me, growing up, the downside of it was that as a kid you don't want to stand out. You don't want to have a famous father let alone get a job because of your famous father, you know? But I'm a product of nepotism. That's how I got my foot in the door, through my dad."
"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."
"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."
