Can you imagine what it’s like to be Jeff Bridges? Because let’s get real: he is The Dude. He’s an aging, burnt-out hippie who somehow became an Oscar winning actor with a successful, multiple decade acting career. And sure, he has a well respected actor for a father, but so does Charlie Sheen. So let’s not pretend that’s any sort of guarantee.
And I’m not sure if his sense of humor about himself is the reason for or the result of his success, but he manages to do the publicity tour for his upcoming, sure to be awful Seventh Son with all the laid back awesomeness you’ve come to expect from The Dude.
I think that turned out better than anyone could have hoped for.
But if you still haven’t had enough The Dude, or if his lullaby album hasn’t sufficiently chilled you out, try meditating with him for a while. And I mean a while.
Never change, The Dude. Never change.
