Your daily dose of Jeff Bridges

Jeff Bridges, Iron Man bad guy, talks to USA Today about family, film and photography:
...much of Bridges' roles are inspired by his bedroom closet. When he does accept a role, his first step is to rifle through his clothes, looking for attire his character might wear and donning them for weeks before shooting begins.

...if it's a pot-smoking, White Russian-swilling, jobless, slacker bowling junkie, as he played in the Coen brothers' 1998 comedy The Big Lebowski, it's time to pull out his ratty T-shirt, thrift-shop shorts and Jellies sandals. Nearly all of the Dude's wardrobe came from Bridges' personal stash.

"That role was pretty easy to get into," he says, grinning and easing into a couch after some herbal tea and a croissant. "Really, I'm a pretty lazy guy. It's a lot easier for me to turn down a role than take it."
