"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."
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."Jeff Bridges on Mark Twain
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young."Jeff Bridges on Henry Ford
"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been."Jeff Bridges on Mark Twain
"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country."Jeff Bridges on Kurt Vonnegut
"A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age."Jeff Bridges on Robert Frost
"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."
"Unlike a lot of actors, my father encouraged all his kids to go into show business."
