Oscar winner Jeff Bridges is 63 today!

Bridges was born in Los Angeles to his show business parents, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges, and his acting older brother, Beau Bridges. It wasn’t long before Jeff Bridges got into the family business, as he made his first uncredited big screen appearance in "The Company She Keeps," before the age of one. He continued his interest in acting throughout childhood, and went on to appear in several episodes of his father's television shows, "Sea Hunt," and "The Lloyd Bridges Show."

After graduating from high school, Jeff enrolled in the United States Coast Guard reserves and served for eight years while pursuing his career. His big break came in 1971, when he starred in the critically acclaimed film, "The Last Picture Show." The film thrust the 20-something onto the public stage, and gained him his first Academy Award nomination.
