Starman (1984)

Jeff Bridges has been nominated for many awards, and usually when I feature him, I go to my 'go to' shots from Against All Odds. That is a little odd in itself, since I have never seen that movie. I do have a childhood memory however, of being with my Dad and younger brother at a screening of Starman. This was the first time I saw Jeff Bridges on screen, and the movie had a surprising, but rather 'Disney-like' nude scene near the beginning of the film. Although there was just a few seconds of Bridges butt, the scene in which he 'was naked' was rather long, and I remember being excited they might show another glimpse of his butt. They did not. =

Since starting FH, I have seen much of more of Jeff's work, and loved watching The Last Picture Show on TCM a few years ago. In honor of Jeff's most recent Oscar nom, I am featuring a few of my favorite peaks at Bridges body. I found copies of both The Last American Hero and Winter Kills to create some new caps.

The Door in the Floor (2004)

The Last American Hero (1973)
