All that was missing from this first pitch was a White Russian in Jeff Bridges’ hand!
But it was still a magical moment at Dodger Stadium over the weekend, seeing the Oscar-winner wind up for a standard toss to home plate, only to switch his pitch and make every Big Lebowski fan’s dreams come true!
Kevin Bacon and his good buddy Jeff Bridges are asking for YOUR help this week!
They are trying to fight hunger through a fund raising campaign on Bacon's site: SixDegrees.org.
Bacon gave an interview about the cause, and it went a little like this:
This 42-year-old man has been trying to get into the U.S. Open for 12 years and all he has to do to make it this year is make this one putt…
Oh no!!!! He missed!
Ohhhh so cloooose!
It went in! The comeback story of the year!
Cast Jeff Bridges! LOLz!
That's not very dude-like, dude! Ha!
Just kidding! We're actually happy to hear Jeff Bridges doesn't smoke as much marijuana as we thought he did! LOL!
Although he admits he takes an occasional toke of the green stuff if it's offered, he recently shared he does NOT smoke any while working, explaining:
“If it’s (marijuana) offered I’ll take it but I’m not a regular smoker, despite what people may think. I don’t smoke when I work because I want to have my wits about me. Besides sobriety is a wonderful high.”
Yes! We totally agree! There is no high better than life!
Napkins with doodles on them? BORING!
UNLESS the doodle was drawn by Jeff Bridges or any of the other awesome celebs who are helping out with this cause!
It’s NF (neurofibromatosis) Awareness month, and celebs are pitching in to do their party by putting hand-drawn doodles up for auction on ebay to help raise money for NF, Inc, an organization that supports individuals and families affected by the disorder.
The above doodle is one of our favs, drawn by Gillian Anderson!

Jeff Bridges has taken a pledge to end childhood hunger by 2015 and so can you!
Working with the nonprofit Share Our Strength and the Foot Network, the actor is the national spokesman for the No Kid Hungry campaign.
The campaign is a state-by-state push to develop public and private partnerships to aid low-income families, to teach nutrition and healthy eating habits and to improve the effectiveness of existing efforts, like school-based breakfast and lunch plans.
The Academy Award winner has been raising awareness for the issue since he helped created the End Hunger Network in the 80's, but believes the issue resonates with him even more because of his own parenting duties, saying:
"As an actor I'm always putting myself in other people's shoes. I can imagine what it would be like to have three daughters who I wasn't able to provide for. It would just be devastating. And then it's much more than the obvious suffering of the kids, but what it's doing to our nation on so many levels when kids don't have the proper nutrition to get their brains working."

OK, so we can’t endorse binge-drinking, but if you ever get the chance to party with Jeff Bridges, take it. He’s hilarious.
Jeff says that after a film wraps he likes to treat himself and party.
"I have a cycle that is not particularly cool, but it's a cycle: trash myself to reward myself. When I've done a good job, I've worked my ass off in a movie and been very disciplined, then to reward myself I'll take that governor off and say: 'Go ahead and do what you want, man. You want to get drunk? You do whatever you want.'"
The only complication is his wife, who has been sober for 15 years.
"She's been sober, I think, for 15 years. No pot, no booze, nothing. It was a concern for me because I knew that I didn't want to stop drinking and having an occasional smoke or whatever. And I was concerned about how that was going to affect her sobriety and also how it was going to affect her relationship with me. And she dealt with this all so gracefully. She said, 'My own sobriety has nothing to do with anybody else.'"
We sort of love this guy! Just remember not to overindulge in alcohol too often!!
