Actor Jeff Bridges speaks on his 43-year- marriage to wife Susan Geston and revealed the secret to their long-lasting marriage. The lovebirds are doting parents to three daughters.


After more than four decades of marriage, "The Big Lebowski" star Jeff Bridges and his wife Susan Geston are still going as strong as ever, defying the odds of Hollywood marriages.

The lovebirds recently celebrated their 43 wedding anniversary in June and almost four months after the actor is opening up about what has kept them going for so long.

During an interview with People Magazine, Bridges gushed over his relationship with his wife and confessed that it was love at first sight for him. However, that isn't all that sustained them for this long. Sharing the secret to their long-lasting union, the 70-year-old said:

We are quite different as people, and we celebrate that rather than making it drive us apart. I respect her wisdom, and I'm sure the girls do too. I've really been blessed."


Geston and Bridges met in 1974 while he was filming the 1975 hit film, "Rancho Deluxe" in Montana. At the time, Geston was working as a waitress in Paradise Valley.

Last year November, the lovebirds made headlines when they sold their 3,517-square-foot ranch in Montecito to media mogul Oprah Winfrey for $6.85 million.


After two years of dating, the duo tied the knot and welcomed three beautiful daughters, Isabelle, 39, Jessica, 37, and Hayley, 35. They are also doting grandparents to Grace and Ben.

Bridges has also been in the news of late because of his collaboration with daughter Isabelle on a new children's book titled, "Daddy Daughter Day." The 39-year-old wrote the book while her father illustrated it.

The project is about a father-daughter duo who go on a series of adventures in their home to commemorate the Daddy-Daughter Day holiday. The pair end up turning their backyard into different scenarios like a circus, a beauty parlor, and a clay workshop. 

The lovely book takes inspiration from the tight bond Isabelle shares with her father. The hardcover version was scheduled for release on October 7 ahead of National Father-Daughter Day.

Away from the family front, Bridges has done exceptionally well as an actor with an array of movies that have garnered critical acclaim, including an Academy Award for Best Actor.

According to Rotten Tomatoes rating, the top five Bridges' films are "Fat City," "The Last Picture Show," "Hell or High Water," "The Fabolous Baker Boys," and "True Grit."
