Jeff 'The Dude' Bridges shares his favorite 'Big Lebowski' scene

Posted on

A couple of weeks ago, we found ourselves sitting face to face with His Dudeness, Jeff Bridges, to talk about his excellent new movie, Crazy Heart. The actor had plenty to say about the film and his Oscar-buzz portrayal of an alcoholic country singer, which you’ll be able to read when EW lands in your mailbox on Friday. But since we were in the presence of everyone’s favorite stoned, strike-rolling cult hero, we had to ask about the 1998 Coen brothers classic, The Big Lebowski. Specifically, we asked Bridges what he does when he’s sitting at home in Santa Barbara, chilling, watching TV (with, one hopes, a White Russian in hand) and The Big Lebowski comes on. Does he turn the channel? Watch the movie from beginning to end? Stick around to see a particular scene? Here’s what Bridges had to say…

“The only movie that I’ll catch and watch all the way through is The Godfather. That hooks me in every time. I’ve seen that several times thinking I’m going to change the channel. With Lebowski, usually I’ll say, ‘Oh, I’ll just wait until Turturro licks the ball, then I’ll change it.’ And then he licks the ball, and I’ll keep watching.”

There you have it, folks. When it comes to John Turturro’s Jesus, even the Dude abides. Speaking of which, now that you know his choice, what’s your favorite scene from The Big Lebowski? Oh, and in case you need a refresher on the scene Bridges is talking about, put on that ratty bathrobe, pour yourself a Caucasian, and enjoy this clip (in Español, no less!).
