Don’t be nervous. Jeff Bridges called you for a reason. He leads a busy life and would most likely appreciate a little chillax sesh. Grab your flask and take him somewhere serene where you can relax and talk about life and spirituality in gruff voices. Watching a Montana sunset while dangling your legs off the side of a cliff would be ideal. Scared of heights/not in or around Montana? That’s OK, you’ll figure something out. But whatever you do, do not take him to a bowling alley. He’ll call you a “wise guy,” and spit on your back when you fall down clutching your crotch (which he just kicked).
Wait, wait, wait… have you even thought of what you’ll wear? Denim is always a good choice, but don’t be an “obvious cowboy.” Jeff Bridges admires subtlety. You can always go the “hint of twang” route by incorporating a western item in with an otherwise non-western ensemble. Think bolero or maybe some spurs. That’s raw.
Like location and outfit, conversation is something you’ll want to choose carefully. The most important thing to remember is that he already knows the lines of the movies he’s been in. He was in them. They’re his fucking lines. He doesn’t need some jackass to remind him of what a quality character “The Dude” was. Material like “That rug really tied the room together” and anything having to do with Vietnam, toes by 3 o’clock, or rolling/not rolling on Shabbos are reserved for 19-year-old college stoners. If you want his respect, and let’s face it… you do, you’re going to have to dig deeper. Also, Jeff Bridges isn’t pestering you to talk about super embarrassing thing you did that one time, is he? No, he’s not, so in mutual respect, don’t bring up Tron. You’d think he would also hate talking about the fact that he was in Stick It, but in reality, he admires the tween gymnastics film for being the edgy voyage of self-discovery that it is.
Lastly, try to play it cool. Don’t text him tomorrow saying what a great time you had. Jeff Bridges doesn’t text and he certainly doesn’t want to hear your pathetic compliments about how manly his beard is. So just save it. He’ll call you. Or he’ll have that whiny MILF Maggie Gyllenhaal call you. Whatever he wants. He’s Jeff Bridges, after all. Who the fuck are you?

These are tough times. We all know this. The economy is still in the shitter (I think) and we need to do everything we can to stand out as unique individuals who have tons of creative energy to offer. So ditch the FirstNameLastName@gmail.com bullshit and follow these simple steps.
