Jeff Bridges & Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'When she tried to make her scent smell like pickles, Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi said that it wound up smelling awful on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). So she went with a more unique smell that would instead capture the essence of who she says she is.

"I wanted it flirty and bubbly like my personality, and obviously something DTF," she said. That should be an easy scent to pinpoint.

Now her statement makes perfect sense to fans of Polizzi and 'Jersey Shore,' but Jeff Bridges had no idea what she was talking about. After getting assurances from Jay Leno that she could say it on the air, Polizzi explained it means "down to f***."

Jeff Bridges, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert was absolutely right when he talked about the cool demeanor of Jeff Bridges on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

"It is relaxing just to look at you," Colbert told Bridges.

Bridges was on to promote his self-titled album, which he says has some elements of country music in it, but is more a mix of a lot of different sounds. Jeff Bridges is a man of many interests and passions, but all of them come with an infectious joy and happiness.

Jeff Bridges performs 'What A Little Bit Of Love Can Do' on 'Today'Jeff Bridges released his self-titled major-label debut Tuesday, following the success of his performance on the 'Crazy Heart' soundtrack. He'd released an album before, but with 'Crazy Heart,' he found a successful partnership with producer T Bone Burnett and a groove that took the best advantage of his talents. Speaking with Matt Lauer Tuesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Bridges sounded like someone starting a second career.

Lauer asked if Bridges was going to tour to support the album, and he mentioned a recent show at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and taping for 'Austin City Limits,' among some other upcoming dates. Bridges doesn't dream about Grammys on his shelf, but he's serious about the music nonetheless. "No, I don't do that," he said. "But, you know, there's going to be some more music. You know, this is, as far as I'm concerned, this is kind of the tip of the iceberg."

Kathie Lee Gifford and her birthday cake on 'Today'For Hoda Kotb's birthday last week on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), she got a visit from her boyfriend and a bottle of tequila. Kathie Lee Gifford's birthday was today, and she got a celebratory serenade from Jeff Bridges, a visit from her husband, her favorite meal and a birthday cake. Kotb will have to do a little more lobbying for a bigger birthday celebration next year.

Bridges, who had performed earlier on the show, sang a celebratory song in a wandering falsetto about Gifford's revolutions around the sun. Frank Gifford, who was also celebrating his birthday Tuesday, surprised his wife, and Matt Lauer stopped by to give them both a peck on the cheek.

Harris rattles off a line from 'Inception,' and DeGeneres, who's wearing a brown wig that nearly covers her eyes, pauses for a few moments and says, "I have no idea what you're talking about."

Jeff Bridges Got His Director's Name Wrong in an Acceptance Speech (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 4th 2011 3:53AM
Jeff Bridges, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'With a chance at becoming the first actor to win back-to-back Oscar gold since Tom Hanks did it back in the 1990s, Jeff Bridges has had a lot of practice the past year or so with acceptance speeches. He gave plenty of them last year for his performance in 'Crazy Heart,' and 'True Grit' has him back on the circuit this year.

With all that practice, you'd think he'd have it down to an artform by now, but as he revealed on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), mistakes do still slip in from time to time.

At last year's Critics Choice Awards, Bridges was probably hoping his 'Crazy Heart' director wasn't in the audience.

Jeff Bridges hosted 'SNL' on 12/18/10['Saturday Night Live' - 'Season 36, Episode 10']

Nothing says "I was in a huge comedy film, then disappeared for a while (unless you count 'K-Pax'), only to resurface in an obscurish low budget buzz worthy film to get that street cred (and Oscar) back and parlay it into a second career: including two gargantuan holiday releases" more than a 'Saturday Night Live' hosting nod.

Jeff Bridges
knows this better than anyone, and we're about to find out if he's still got any "Dude" left in him.

Watch Bridges banter with Fred Armisen (and some high-budget special effects) after the jump. The Cohen brothers (a.k.a. Bridges' hands with eyes drawn on them) make a cameo.

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.

How Jeff Bridges Used 'SNL' Gig for Some Brotherly Revenge (VIDEO)

Jeff Bridges Talks 'SNL' with Beau on 'Tonight'Jeff Bridges will host 'Saturday Night Live' on Dec. 18. Chatting with Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), the 'TRON: Legacy' actor reminisced about another 'SNL' stint with his brother Beau.

As Jeff's big brother, Beau liked to tease and bully poor Jeff. Live sketch comedy seemed like the perfect opportunity to get him back. In one sketch, Jeff played a masseuse and Beau, the client.

"I had him on the table right where I wanted him, and I just could not resist -- knowing it was live TV -- I just yanked his shorts down and showed his ass." The censors went ballistic.

Oscar Winners Christoph Waltz, Jeff Bridges, Mo'Nique, Sandra Bullock on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 8th 2010 7:04PM
Academy Award actor and actress winners chatted about their Oscar ceremony experiences with Oprah Winfrey on Monday's 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz admitted to Winfrey that he was "more nervous than ever before. Because it is the Academy Awards. I blanked out completely. I hardly recognized my name." The he told Winfrey that his 5-year-old daughter has been dressing his awards, making little installations with them. "She's really gonna enjoy dressing this guy," Winfrey said.

Winfrey asked Best Actor Jeff Bridges what the past 12 hours was like. "Like a kid's magic slate," he said. "Whoosh." Then he went to on to talk about his parents presence, which he has alluded to at several awards shows. "I felt my folks," he said. "They were all over the place."

Best Supporting Actress Mo'Nique's homage to the great actress Hattie McDaniel (the first black woman to get a Best Supporting Actress nod, for 'Gone With the Wind' in 1939) went a little beyond the ordinary. "Last night was really special cause I could hear her whispering in my ear," Mo'Nique said. And on Sunday, while she was going through hair and makeup, there was a knock at her door, and someone delivered a flower and a letter from someone who was a friend with McDaniel's family. Coincidence?

And, finally, Winfrey brought up the by-now-famous Sandra Bullock-Meryl Streep buss that Best Actress winner Bullock mentioned on stage Sunday night. "We have a thing," Bullock quipped. Actually, Bullock said, "you just feel in this business that they pit women against each other ... and I'm so tired of it ... and i said, 'how do we defuse this?' I'm gonna kiss her."

Changes Coming For Oscar's Best Song Nominees

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:40PM
crazy_heart_jeff_bridges_guitarIn recent years, the songs nominated at the Oscars have not been particularly memorable or worth the time during the broadcast to waste on music that nobody remembers after walking out of the multiplex. This year, ironically, there is at least one very good song that was going to be an Oscar highlight, assuming the producers convinced Jeff Bridges to sing 'The Weary Kind' from 'Crazy Heart' during the March 7th broadcast. That's not going to happen now.

New Oscar producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic have decided to drop the Best Song performances, according Entertainment Weekly. Instead of singers -- either from the movie or good enough to sing the songs from the movies -- we're going to see a montage of images from the picture with the soundtrack recording.
