Jeff Bridges has that rare quality of being a legacy in a major Hollywood dynasty — his father Lloyd had a storied acting career, brother Beau has been in the business all his life — who is also completely un-Hollywood. Today’s Jeff Bridges renaissance started with his Oscar-winning role in Crazy Heart and it’s continued in all it’s fully-bearded glory with his second consecutive Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for True Grit and the hit Tron: Legacy. To pay homage to a man whose career is as diverse as his facial hair, we dug through the archives to find the most amazing shots of Bridges throughout the years. Scouring from the 70’s on, we realized that this guy has a love for groovy jackets and well-groomed mustaches no matter what decade. It’s pretty clear that The Dude has style.
