Including playing music. Bridges refers frequently to playing live music with a band as his teenage dream. Reminded of the choice he felt he had to make between acting and being a musician, Bridges is asked whether he wishes he’d chosen music instead.
“But I did,” he says, observing that he never stopped playing just because he was making movies. “That was back in the days when there were slogans like ‘Don’t trust anyone over 30.’ Music was only a teenage thing; there was no precedent for it. Now the Rolling Stones are out there at 70. So maybe it’s not just a young man’s sport.
“It would have been cool to do it when I was younger. But I was realizing other dreams. Hey, you can’t realize all your dreams at once.”
