Oral History: Jeff Bridges Acting with His Father Lloyd Bridges

HFPA journalists interviewed father and son together for the 1994 movie Blown Away directed by Stephen Hopkins. JEFF: “We worked together in Tucker: The Man and His Dream by Francis Ford Coppola a few years before this, but we had a lot more scenes to play in Blown Away, and I remembered something that I had forgotten, how much fun it was to work with my dad, because you become peers all of a sudden, especially if you approach the work in the same way, and you get back to that childlike thing of playing with each other, you become these two big kids and you get excited about ideas that you want to try.
