Bridges Matriarch Dies

19 February 2009 11:10 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Dorothy Bridges, the matriarch of Hollywood's famous Bridges family, has died. She was 93.

The actress/poet, wife of late veteran actor Lloyd Bridges and mother to The Fabulous Baker Boys co-stars Jeff Bridges and Beau Bridges, passed away at her Los Angeles home on 16 February.

Lloyd Bridges, famous for his role in TV show Sea Hunt and comedic turns in Hots Shots and Airplane, met Dorothy at university and they married soon after in 1938. They were together for 60 years until his death in 1998.

The pair studied acting together at the Actors Lab in New York, but moved back to L.A. when Bridges won a contract with Columbia Pictures.

Dorothy was a respected poet, performing for Bob Hope at the Hollywood Bowl and publishing the story of her romance with Bridges in the book You Caught Me Kissing.

She starred in several TV shows and films, appearing opposite her husband in Sea Hunt and with her four times Oscar-nominated son Jeff in See You In The Morning. She was also directed by three-time Emmy winner Beau in The Thanksgiving Promise.

She is survived by her two actor sons, her daughter Lucinda and 11 grandchildren. »
