Jeff Bridges Barks at Regis for Trying to Touch His Beard (VIDEO)

Jeff Bridges, 'Live with Regis and Kelly'There are advantages to being Kelly Ripa instead of Regis Philbin on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (Weekdays, Syndicated). One advantage is that she can tell how soft a beard is without risking bodily harm. Actor Jeff Bridges stopped by today, and Ripa noticed how soft his bushy beard is when she went in for the requisite talk show kiss.

When Philbin tried to verify the bearsoftness of it, he got a quick "bark" from Bridges instead. Later, Bridges explained that was a little joke he picked up from his father, Lloyd Bridges. Ripa revealed that when Bridges spoke of his father during his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, after winning for 'Crazy Heart,' she was moved to tears.

We were glad to see Bridges explain himself, because past experience has shown that erratic behavior and a bushy beard on a talk show could mean you're filming an avant garde faux documentary about a mental breakdown.

After the incident, Regis quickly got back on task, checking to make sure all five of his digits were present and accounted for. He didn't show it, but we know he was disappointed he didn't get to find out how soft that beard was. Maybe it's time the Reeg grew one for himself.
