Fatherhood regrets

The actor and his wife of 41 years Susan Geston met while shooting Rancho Deluxe and have not looked back since then. They've got three grown daughters.

His relationship with his wife is perfect, but he is full of regrets about how he handled fatherhood. He told inflight magazine Lufthansa that he was not present in their lives. Geston raised their daughters and although they are grown now, he now does his best to be a great dad.

Why they aren't famous

But Bridges daughters all want nothing to do with acting. Did their father's lifestyle have anything to do with it? Not exactly! The girls – Isabelle Annie, 37, Jessica Lily, 35, and Haley Roselouise, 33 – all happen to have very different interests from pursuing a life onscreen.

Isabelle is a graduate of Pepperdine University and mom of one with a few advertising gigs under her belt.

Jess is the closest to her father career-wise.

She's a musician and has performed with his band once in 2014 (yes, Jeff Bridges is a singer as well!).

Wasted talent?

The baby of the house Haley is a big name already in interior design circles with major accolades on the popular decor website, Houzz.

But the girls are super close to their dad even if they refused his help with getting acting gigs.

In a 2010 interview with The Guardian, the actor revealed that he'd failed to introduce them to acting at a younger age. He somewhat feels bad about that especially because they had the potential to make great actors and had all the connection to get their foot in the door.
