VIDEO: Watch Jeff Bridges Explain 'Plorking' and How He Decided to Make The Giver

Aug 21, 2014

Jeff Bridges stopped by the TIME studio to chat with us about his new movie The Giver. He plays the title character, a man who is charged with keeping all the memories and feelings about the past, while the rest of his countrymen go about their business without any knowledge of suffering, love or death. He also responded to news that John Turturro hopes to bring back his Jesus character from The Big Lebowski. And then the confirmed Buddhist explained a quote we found on his website: "After ecstasy, the laundry."
