Jeff Bridges on ‘love at first sight’ with his wife of 43 years, Susan: ‘I’ve really been blessed’

On June 5, Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and his wife Susan Geston celebrated an impressive 43 years of marriage – a rare romantic milestone – especially in Hollywood.

‘I’ve really been blessed,’ the 70-year-old grandfather-of-two – whose father was Lloyd Bridges – told People on Wednesday.

‘We are quite different as people, and we celebrate that rather than making it drive us apart. I respect her wisdom.’

Jeff originally met his 67-year-old wife in 1974 when she was a 20-year-old roadhouse waitress working on a Paradise Valley, Montana ranch where he was filming Frank Perry’s 1975 western Rancho Deluxe.

‘It was love at first sight,’ gushed Bridges, who married her two years later.

In November, the inseparable couple sold their 3,517-square-foot Montecito ranch to neighbor Oprah Winfrey for $6.85M.

It’s now come full circle for the Big Lebowski alum and his ladylove, who now  live in Montana where they spent last Christmas with their three daughters – Isabelle, 39; Jessica, 37; and Haley, 34 – and their families.

‘They love each other, but they like each other, they spend time together,’ Isabelle told the mag.

‘They make an effort to ask each other questions about what the other is interested in.’

Jeff illustrated his eldest child’s 56-page children’s book Daddy Daughter Day, which hit shelves on Wednesday.

‘Time goes so fast, and it’s so precious,’ said Bridges.
