Jeff Bridges on perfecting the role of a drunk: "I just got drunk"

Jeff Bridges sits down with Piers Morgan for the hour tonight to talk about his long acting career, his new self-titled CD and much more. Bridges often plays the role of a drunk including his role as Rooster Cogburn in "True Grit." So how does he prepare for these roles? "I simply use something us actors call sense memory," Bridges says. He remembers how something felt, recalls it and pretends.

Catch the full interview at 9pm ET on CNN.

    Jeff is one of my favorite 4 actors. \, but his comment that "Death is the final chapter" is wrong. If earthly life is but 70 + – years and eternity (of some sort) is forever, then death is only the end of the FIRST chapter !!

    I applaud Jeff Bridges for his concern about ending hunger in America. This is a hidden tragedy and I am glad to see him bring this to light. Thank you, Jeff!

    Have watched many of your interviews with admiration. This one with J. Bridges was the worst. Why do you have to interrupt at the most interesting moments? Just when Jeff is about to tell you more of his 'secrets'. Jeff is slow in response, so give him the 'pregnant ' pause to respond. Very upsetting.

    For God sakes give him a chance to have to rush in to fill every pause. I usually never watch more than a half hour{Brian Williams on the half hour} but today stayed through. A pause is sometimes when you receive the most startling thoughts. He was ready so many times to say something else and you rushed in to keep it moving keep it moving....lost so much of opts thoughtfulness.................

    Jeff Bridges is terrific but the interview was a colossal bore and your questions were stupid. No wonder he didn't have anything to say. Get rid of Piers Morgan,. Please. And you interrupt everyone with your inane, insipid remarks. I think Bridges was stoned in order to get through that.

    could you post the clip where Jeff spoke about the secret to being happily married. It was very good. (and your questions were great)

    i loved jeff bridges in your interview. his stories were wonderful and the way he spoke so intimately & tenderly about being married was inspirational. my husband of 23 years was unable to see the whole show. (we agree with you – jeff bridges will ~always~ be the dude. we loved "the big lebowski" even before the folks "across the pond!") however,the entire show was excellent. how do i see it again in its entirety?
