Bridges Fought Acting Urges
Rebellious star JEFF BRIDGES almost missed out on his glamorous acting career, because he wanted to defy his acting parents. Son of famous actor LLOYD BRIDGES and taking his first role in THE COMPANY SHE KEEP aged just six years old, Jeff felt pressurised into becoming an actor and became determined to pursue his own musical interests. Bridges tells British film magazine, Empire: "I rebelled against my parents. So I soon resisted going into acting even though I was probably born to be an actor. "It was only later, after I'd done 10 movies, that I decided to make acting my profession."
