Jeff Bridges has no plans for cosmetic surgery

Jeff Bridges will never have plastic surgery as he wants to see his face “crumble”.

The 61-year-old actor is proud of the way he has aged, and has no plans to try to turn back time. He doesn’t understand why people are so against looking their age, explaining he loves see the way his face has changed as he has got older.

“Oh no, I’m going to let it crumble,” he replied, when asked if he’d ever go under the knife. “I’m looking forward to that, just letting it all go back into the sea.”

Jeff insists age isn’t as important as it used to be, as new movie techniques mean people can play characters at different points in their lives.

In TRON: Legacy, there are scenes showing Jeff’s character Kevin Flynn as a youngster as well as his older self. Motion capture technology was used to show Kevin at the different stages in his life, which had Jeff enthralled.

“This was real movie magic. One of the reasons I wanted to do the film was to play with that, all the cutting-edge stuff that’s available to us know. I was very curious what it would be like to make movies without cameras, which is basically what they do,” he explained on a British TV show. “I’ve had a long career from doing movies like this where I get to be 30 years younger! That’s one of the great things about this new technology, now actors can play their characters at any age – they can be eight years old or 108.”
