Certainly not the longest marriage in the history of Hollywood but one of the strongest. Jeff Bridges and his lovely wife Sue have been married since 1977…45 years!
A marriage that produced three beautiful daughters . . . Haley, Jessica, and Isabelle.
. . . and a granddaughter, Grace, who calls him Dude-Pa (!)
Jeff Bridges’ parents, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges, also had a longtime marriage.
. . for 59 years until his death in 1998 ..
Once, on a talk show, the host asked Jeff what the secret is to his longtime marriage. His reply was .. “Well, you just don’t get divorced”. The audience laughed; they thought he was making a joke. He smiled and said, “No, no .. I’m serious. You work it out”. Good philosophy ..
I love this photo …
.. and this one
Like The Dude, their marriage abides. And Jeff finally wins a well-deserved Oscar after seven (!) nominations.. Crazy Heart 2009 ?
