He was very hot and good-looking.
Unfortunately, he lost it just a few years ago.
Maybe all the pot smoking did not allow him to hold onto his good looks.
Yes. Back in the 80s, HBO used to show [italic]Against All Odds[/italic] over and over and over, so everyone had their fill of the hotness.
Any gay rumors?
He became grizzly way too early. Should not have smoked.
His great looks didn't last past 58 or 60.
Yes, that is a nice photo of the older Jeff Bridges which the OP posted.
Not sure how recent that photo is. He had been sporting a full beard the last several years and for the part as a country music singer.
He has had too much sun exposure without facial sunscreen.
Such a fantastic actor, too. I'm so glad he finally got his well-deserved Oscar for playing that county music singer.
I think his acting skills were overshadowed by his attractiveness, and it wasn't until his looks faded that the academy was willing to acknowledge his talent.
Jeff got the looks and Beau got the....well, I'm not sure exactly what poor Beau got. The girth, I suppose.
I was always a Beau guy. I loved the way he looked with all that blond hair on his head. Not taking anything away from Jeff though.
They had no choice in the matter. Their Father Lloyd was absolutely gorgeous in his prime. Their Mother was also gorgeous.
I know he & Kim Carnes worked together on an album. Rumor has it they also slept together.

I was going to say that Jeff is the only A-list hunk there's never been any gay speculation about until I saw [R18]'s photo.
Honey, every guy in the 80's looked like that. You couldn't tell the straights from the gays. The only thing missing in that shot was short shorts and I bet he had a pair or two.

Wasn't there something about him and Clint getting it on during the filming of "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot"?
He was hot as F.U.C.K. in "American Heart". Edward Furlong played his son, but I wish it was me playing his son. He could be my daddy anytime!
He looks like Matthew Modine in R4's photo - they both have great hair. Could explain why I find both of them so hot ...
He was beautiful in the 80's and 90's and I think Against All Odds was the film which turned him into a sex symbol after years of work onscreen. That scene in the cave still gives me chills.
Best pic from that era:
Back in the 80's (I believe), Beau and Jeff were in a Saturday Night Live skit. Jeff was at his beauty peak. Beau was giving Jeff a massage (on a massage table) in the skit. If I recall correctly, Jeff was wearing a white tank top and long, thin white pants. When Beau started giving Jeff a massage (Jeff was on his back), Jeff started getting an erection. Jeff quickly changed positions to hide his erection. The skit made me uncomfortable due to the fact that they're brothers, so I turned to another channel when I noticed the erection. I don't have time to try and find it on Youtube (I'm at work.) Does anyone remember this skit?
I also remember a Playgirl still of Jeff and Rachel Ward from Against All Odds. You could clearly see some on Jeff's medium brown pubes. He was one of my late teen crushes. Aaahhhh....Jeff!
Jeff Bridges and Clint Eastwood were both extremely hot in 1974's "Thunderbolt & Lightfoot" (a terrific movie, by the way). They were both quite tasty and got my 14 year old hormones raging when I saw that movie at the theater back in the day. They still look great watching it on DVD today. Yum.
Beau was pretty cute back in the day. I watched For Love of Ivy a couple years ago and he was yummy.
...And he can cum quickly on command. See the trustworthy sources / firsthand knowledge thread (part 1).
The fact that his penis can do party tricks might explain the SNL erection at the hands of his brother. the guy seems to be super sensitive to stimulation, and the presence of others or stage lights don't seem to have any wilting effect.

SOMEONE LOCATE THAT OLD SNL CLIP.....NOWWWWWWW!!!!
Right hand ready
There is a scene in an old Beau Bridges film called Gaily, Gaily in which he is in his early 20s and is seduced by Melina Mercouri and it is unbearabaly hot.
Thanks R11 for the family photo! First time I've found Beau way more attractive. He just looks like a nicer guy here...
Second all the comments on Jeff's hotness.
The father kind of has a Bush Sr look to him, doesn't he?
Link to trustworthy sources thread, please and thank you?! Trying to find it myself, but DL's search can be finicky.
Jeff is still hot. I find him almost as hot now as he was in the "Against All Odds" days. But then I've always had a thing for hot older dudes.
I even liked him in "Mirror Has 2 Faces". He somehow made Bab's seem sexy - I liked him even in the suits he wore,playing the bumbling, nerdy, professor.
Loved him in American Heart in that tight shiny silky dark brown Nylon Tanktop.....yummmy
At least his eyes are still blue.
He is totally down to Earth.
He is an absolute dreamboat. Those pictures from the 70s you guys shared in the first 2 pages of this thread are stunning. So many movies I've never seen him in. The Last Picture Show, I thought his beauty was overshadowed by that of Timothy Bottoms (who himself peaked a couple years later in The Paper Chase).
I NEED to see that SNL clip with the supposed brother boner.
His portrayal of The Dude in The Big Lebowski is legendary. It's not just a movie, it's a way of life. Thank you, Jeff.
There is a forgotten Jeff Bridges film called "Winter Kills" that is AMAZING. In the film, he is banging a woman and you see his gorgeous ass. Then he hops out of bed and gets into a pair of tight white FTL briefs. WOOF!
The Dude abides.
Hot then. Hot now. Love him.
Definitely. One of the few who was the complete package: movie star looks plus could actually act.
Seeing him in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was one of my earliest crushes. Sexy mofo indeed.
U saw The Fabulous Baker Boys on TV and I believe that's a lot like real life. Beau a bitter, uptight pain in the ass type, and Jeff the sexy careless one. He looked so hot in that movie. I watched it because the title said Fabulous.
Any rumor of him being "family"?
Wasn't the rumor that he and Clint had a fling during the making of THUNDERBOLT and LIGHTFOOT?
He'll probably always be hot (or at least til he gets to his 80s, like Conery) because he's so effortlessly manly. He doesn't need to do anything, say anything or look a certain way. He just is.
Yes R76, and he's effortlessly talented. His skill is so natural and innate, you never see him "acting." I first saw him in "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" and I was mesmerized. He completely stole it from Eastwood. At one point he dresses in drag and it's so unbelievably hot, it's criminal.
R75 wow that was very homoerotic, especially thew way Jeff was massaging his butt and the necking at the end. I wonder if they practiced the ski at home. :-P
I remember the female film critic for the Boston Herald writing in her review that the sight of Jeff's naked ass in "Starman" was worth the price of admission.
Was Bo the homosexual?
Um, not really! He also didn't deserve his Oscar and John Goodman acted circles around him in Big Lebowski. Overrated guy really.
Beau is married with grown kids
I saw Jeff perform this year with his band, and met him after the show. Hot damn, that man is handsome. Really charming and sexy too. And he smelled incredible. And that voice.. I know, MARY!
At any rate, I find him better looking now. But I have a thing for older, sexy, masculine guys - he fits the bill perfectly.
