The Dude I’ve seen Lebowski 20 times
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!”
