Jeff Bridges is one busy man! The veteran actor joined his True Grit co-stars Matt Damon and young newcomer Hailee Steinfeld at the NYC premiere of their film Tuesday night held at the Ziegfeld Theatre. The veteran actor is hot off promoting his other film, Tron: Legacy, but made sure to pay allegiance to True Grit last night, bringing his family — wife Susan Bridges and daughter Jessie — along for the occasion!
Matt brought along wife Luciana Barroso for the premiere! The Italian beauty looked great for just having the couple’s fourth daughter on Oct. 20!
True Grit — directed by Joel and Ethan Coen —i s a remake of the 1969 John Wayne classic that earned Wayne his one and only Oscar.
This time around, Jeff plays the eye-patch wearing, rugged, aged and tough U.S. Marshal Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn.
The remake — which hits theaters Dec. 25 — marks the debut of newcomer Hailee as the 14-year-old girl who hires Rooster to find the man who killed her father.
Oddly enough, The Coen Bros. film didn’t earn a single Golden Globe nomination even after it made the top 10 films of the year list by AFI and Critics’ Choice Awards.
Jeff won the Oscar last year for his role in Crazy Heart — but no Golden Globe nod. Maybe the Academy will recognize him come Oscar time?
