Jeff Bridges Net Worth
Jeff Bridges net worth: Jeff Bridges is American actor, producer, and country musician who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. He is one of the most famous and celebrated actors of his generation thanks to roles in films like "The Big Lebowski", "Crazy Heart", "True Grit" and "Tron".
Jeff Bridges was born in Los Angeles, California on December 4, 1949. He was the second son born to actors Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges. His older brother is actor Beau Bridges.
Jeff and Beau began their acting careers as children with appearances on their father's television show "Sea Hunt". After high school he toured with his father in a stage production of the play "Anniversary Waltz". He then moved to New York City to study acting. During this time Jeff also served in US Coast Guard Reserve.
Today Jeff Bridges is probably best known for his role as The Dude in "The Big Lebowski", for which he has become a pop culture icon, but that is far from his only notable acting accomplishment. Jeff won the Academy Award for Best Actor in for his role in the 2009 film "Crazy Heart". He has been nominated for Academy Awards for his roles in "The Last Picture Show", "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot", "Starman", "The Contender", and "True Grit". Jeff Bridges' other well-known roles in films include "Fearless", "Iron Man", "The Fabulous Baker Boys", "Jagged Edge", "Seabiscuit", and "Tron".
Jeff married Susan Geston in 1977. They met on the film shoot for "Rancho Deluxe," where she was working as a maid. The couple has three daughters, Isabelle, Jessica, and Hayley, and one granddaughter Grace. Bridges studies Buddhism and meditates for a half an hour before his call time on a film set.
Real Estate: In 2014, Jeff and Susan paid $6.85 million for a 4-acre equestrian property in the exclusive town of Montecito, near Santa Barbara. He listed this home for sale in 2019 for $8 million, ultimately accepting around $7 million. The buyer was Oprah Winfrey. Oprah already owned a 66-acre property called Promised Land immediately next door.
In 2017 Jeff and Susan sold a 20-acre Montecito estate for $16 million.
Father's Estate: In the 1950s, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges bought an oceanfront home in Malibu for a nominal amount of money in today's dollars. Upon his death in 1998, Jeff, Beau and their sister inherited the house which today could be worth $4 – 6 million. The siblings rent the home for an average of $16,000 per month. Thanks to a special tax law in California called Proposition 13, the siblings only have to pay $5,700 a year in property taxes. That implies that the state of California's assessment of the home's value is $570,000. On the open market if the next purchaser paid $3 million for the home, their annual property tax bill would be $30,000.
Critics call this legal carve out unfair. Others praise the proposition for enabling people to keep family properties that they otherwise would be forced to sell. On the one hand, Prop 13 keeps many properties from ever hitting the market, which therefore theoretically decreases housing supply. On the other hand, perhaps the Bridges siblings deserve to benefit from what turned out to be a wise investment by their father decades earlier.
