The Dude I’ve seen Le­bowski 20 times

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Jef f Bridges has watched one of his most fa­mous films, The Big Le­bowski, about 20 times.

The ac­tor, 67, starred as The Dude in the 1998 cult Coen Broth­ers film about a kid­nap and re­sult­ing ran­som pay­ment that goes hi­lar­i­ously wrong.

He said: “I’ll be watch­ing TV at home – I’m a kind of clicker guy – it’ll be on and I’ l l say, ‘ I’ l l watch un­til ( John) Tur­turro licks the ( bowl­ing) ball.’ But then I get hooked. The Coen broth­ers – they’re masters.”

Asked how many times he had seen it, Bridges said: “Man, 20… I don’t know. A lot. I love that movie, I’m so happy to be a part of it. The Dude abides.”

The f i lm also stars Ju­lianne Moore as Maude Le­bowski, John Good­man, Steve Buscemi and the late Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man.

Bridges did not rule out an­other Le­bowski f ilm be­ing made. He told The Jonathan Ross Show: “Maude, I’ve im­preg­nated Maude…The Lit­tle Le­bowski – it’s all set up!”
