Lions Roar : May 2013
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2013 61 scheduled for the peculiar hour of 10:30 p.m. The second sur- prise was that he would have to compete with booze and bowling pins; that is, his speech was to be delivered first in a bar and then repeated a little later in a bowling alley. To make matters worse, the 10:30 speech got postponed to eleven, then midnight, and finally it got rolled into the one at the bowling alley. “Virginia governor Bob McDonnell, who is chairman of the Republican Governors Association and already part of the No Kid Hungry campaign, arrives, gives me a wonderful introduction, and splits,” Bridges recounts in The Dude and the Zen Master. “ It turns out that there are no other governors there at all. I end up giving the talk I’d agonized over for two months to an audience of seventy-five college girls at the bowling-alley bar. And I don’t change a thing, either. I memorized my lines so well that I just give the entire four-page speech written for state governors—I hope you’ll join Governor McDonnell and others to develop state solutions to childhood hunger—to a bunch of college girls.” Not that Bridges is putting these young girls down. He’s quick to add that—you never know—one fine day it just might be one of those girls who really makes a difference. AT THE FOUR SEASONS LOUNGE, Bernie Glassman clarifies that the koans in The Big Lebowski are “not from Jeff,” but rather from the Coen brothers’ script. “Jeff just happens to be the guy who is the Dude in the movie, and he’s also the Dude in his life.” I think Glassman means that, although Bridges isn’t exactly the Dude you see in the film, he isn’t exactly not that Dude either. The ways in which he is un-Dude are easy to pinpoint. Bridges, for instance, is no perennial bachelor. He’s been mar- ried to the same woman for thirty-five years and they have three grown daughters. Nonetheless Bridges has a Duderino flavor—he’s chilled out and, for lack of a better word, really nice. Frequently when someone asks him for an autograph, he goes five steps further and offers them a drawing instead. Also like the Dude, Bridge’s speech is garnished with f-bombs and mans, but maybe he and Glassman are just hamming it up for the press. Bridges’ tuna tartare is gone and Glassman’s Danish is slightly picked over when the publicist approaches the table. It seems that Bridges’ makeup artist and the rest of the bromantic cou- ple’s entourage are already anticipating the next media event, this one on TV. “Five more minutes,” says the publicist. Bridges screws up his face. “Cool, cool, yeah,” he says, “but we were just getting going here!” o ANDREA MILLER is the deputy editor of the Shambhala Sun, as well as the editor of the anthology Right Here with You: Bringing Mindful Awareness into Our Relationships.
