Jeff Bridges met his wife, Susan Geston, while she was working as a waitress. This was a very strange way to meet someone. Their relationship also began after a great date property-surfing.
Jeff Bridges’s love story could be a great plot for a romantic comedy. It all started when he was making a movie in Paradise Valley, Montana, and something unexpected happened.
Jeff met waitress Susan Geston. He couldn’t take his eyes off her, and his heart longed for her. He ended up going on an odd first date with the waitress, but it was the start of a lifelong love. Here’s a look at how they fell in love:
The famous actor is thought to be one of the best of all time. He has been in the business for almost 70 years. Jeff is from a famous family in Hollywood. His father, Llyod Bridges, was also a famous actor.
The actor and his brother, Beau Bridges, got their start in the business at a young age. They also did some movies with their father. Jeff has won a number of awards, including an Oscar, Screen Actors Guild awards, and two Golden Globes.
Some of the movies he’s been in are “The Last Picture Show,” “The Big Lebowski,” “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” “Crazy Heart,” and “Tron” and “Bad Times at the El Royale,” which came out more recently. Jeff also writes music, produces music, and sings.
Jeff was working on the 1975 movie “Rancho Deluxe” when he met Susan Geston, the woman he “couldn’t take his eyes off” at first. This was when Jeff was at the top of his game and his career was going strong.
Geston worked as a waiter in Chico Hot Springs, where a scene with a hot bath was being filmed. Jeff wrote in his book “The Dude and the Zen Master” that he couldn’t stop looking at her.
The star of “Sea Hunt” saw that Geston was very pretty, but she also had bruises on her face and two black eyes. He would find out later that she hurt herself in an accident.
Jeff looked away, but Geston caught him every time. At the end of the day, Jeff finally went up to her and complimented her, but Geston didn’t care. He asked her out, but she said no. Jeff tried it again, but the answer was still no.
Hayley’s wedding made the news when fans heard about the sweet moment when her sick dad got out of bed.
Geston turned down the actor’s request for a date, but she gave him hope when she told him, “It’s a small town; maybe we’ll run into each other.” According to Jeff, her words were “prophetic.”
The two people got together again outside of work on a fun night, where they danced. Jeff said that was the day he realized he loved Geston. The two went on their first date when Jeff had a meeting with a real estate agent.
He asked Geston, and the two of them went house-hunting. The actor remembered going to a ranch near a river. And as they walked around the property and looked at it, Jeff heard a voice in his head say:
“You and your future wife are now going to look at a house.”
The actor was surprised by this thought, and it made him feel uneasy. Jeff felt this way because he was afraid he would lose his freedom. However, he could not let go of the love of his life.
Geston and Jeff knew they wanted to be together for good two years after their first date. So, they got married, and now they have three grown children and are a happy, loving couple.
The movie star and his wife have been married for more than 40 years. And it’s safe to say that they’ve both had good times and been through hard times.
Jeff told People how he and Geston have kept their relationship going. They both said that they had gotten to know each other better over time. He told them:
“As people, we are very different, but we celebrate that instead of letting it drive us apart. I like how smart she is, and I’m sure the girls do too. I’ve been very lucky.”
He also wrote in his book that Sue taught him a lot and that they both know each other’s weak spots. For example, Jeff always worries about starting a project, and Geston always reminds him that his worries don’t stop him from doing well.
The 72-year-old added that he and Geston care about each other a lot and have realized that their relationship is the “most precious thing.” Jeff said that he and Geston did not fully know each other, but they were okay with that.
Geston and Jeff have three daughters. Being a father and having a family is one of Geston’s greatest accomplishments. Isabelle, who was born in 1981, is their eldest child.
Haley and Jessica were born in 1985 and 1983, respectively. The Bridges girls pretty much grew up in the spotlight because their famous dad took them to a lot of red carpet events.
Now that they are all adults, the three friends are busy with their jobs and families. Isabelle’s first and, so far, only try in Hollywood was in “Termini” when she was a teenager.
Isabelle Boesch is married to Brandon Boesch and works as a passionate motherhood coach. Jessica, who is just a few years younger than her, didn’t get the acting bug, but she did become a singer and songwriter.
Hayley Roselouise is the youngest of Jeff’s beautiful daughters. Like her older sisters, she did not choose a career in Hollywood. Hayley is instead an interior designer, and she got married in September 2021.
Fans heard about Hayley’s wedding on the news when they heard that her sick dad got out of bed to walk her down the aisle.
As of the year 2020, Jeff had cancer and was getting better with the help of COVID-19 treatment. But his health didn’t stop him from walking down the aisle with Hayley and doing the father-bride dance.
