Jeff Bridges is one of Hollywood’s most known actors. His superhit film “The Big Lebowski,” which was delivered many years before, is as yet cherished by millions today for being so unique and a masterpiece itself.
He brings his own charm and profundity to his characters in general – making him amazing at his work. With regards to his love life, he is as warm as in his films and has been with one lady who’s his first love – Susan Geston.
A Marriage to Look Upon, Lasting for Decades & Still Going Strong.
Jeff Bridges and Susan Geston met back in 1975 on the sets of Rancho Deluxe, and it was love at first sight for him. Susan got into an accident and injured her two beautiful eyes and a messed up nose – Jeff Bridges continued to fall further infatuated with her.
In his own words, he speaks about Susan:
“I saw this girl. I couldn’t take my eyes off her. Not only was she gorgeous, but she had two black eyes and a recently broken nose (from a car accident, I later learned). Something about her beauty and disfigurement kept me riveted.”
Mr. Jeff, being totally charmed by Susan, gathered up all the strength to propose her – yet he was in a split second dismissed. According to him:
“I got up the courage to ask her, ‘Would you like to go out with me?’ She said no. I asked her again, and she said, ‘No — it’s a small town; maybe we’ll run into each other later.’”
As it shows up, Susan was correct. In a little while, they met each other around and hit the dance floor with one another – that is when Jeff Bridges realized she was an ideal one for him, for eternity.
“The next day, I had a meeting scheduled with a local real estate agent who was going to show me some property, and I invited Sue to come along. That was our official first date. We went to look at a ranch house on the river. As we were walking around, there was a voice in my head: You are now looking at a house with your future wife. And I thought, Oh, no, let me outta her.”
As Jeff bridges was confused with his thoughts, he was also consoling himself because of his pure love for Susan. He continues:
“ I felt cornered, not by Sue but by myself. I couldn’t bear to let the love of my life slip through my fingers, but at the same time I was afraid of declaring. ‘This is the one!’ I was crazy in love.”
But destiny plays its own game and the couple got married in 1977. His love for his wife is positive and above all. He learns from his wife everyday and when he is thinking to do a new movie her suggestion matters the most and she knows the best thing to say.
“I’ve learned so much from Sue. She points out ways that I defeat myself, and I do the same for her. For instance, I’m often frightened of getting involved in new projects.”
“And Sue will remind me, “Hey, you always get like this when you’re asked to do something new.’ And I’ll say, ‘You’re right; that’s just what I do.’
Jeff Bridges and his wife is a perfect example of a marriage. Even after 43 years he still continues to learn from her and cherish everyday of his life with her. He shares some true words of wisdom which we think every married couple should live by:
It’s simple thing. She shows me another way of looking at something. We’ve been doing this so long, and we care for each other so much, that our relationship is the most precious thing for both of us.”
