Three years later he starred opposite of Clint Eastwood in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.

Over the next three decades Bridges went on to star in over 50 films and win countless awards for his work. More recently Jeff starred in the 2009 film Crazy Heart, which earned him his first Academy Award for Best Actor. In 1977 Jeff married Susan Geston, the two met while filming Ranch Deluxe. Together they have three daughters.
