On Friday afternoon, Goodman received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (it’s about time!) and his Big Lebowski co-star was scheduled to give an introductory speech. But it wasn’t Jeff Bridges who gave the speech…it was Jeff Lebowski.
Bridges took off his jacket and put on his Lebowski sweater to give his speech about John Goodman, a “good man”:
“He’s one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting. As a showman, he has explored the stages from Los Angeles to New York—we’re talking Broadway here, man—he’s done some weird little movies, too. And he’s lived, like so many men in prior generations have lived their lives. He is a man of his times, a man of our times, and he has become a legend.”
And that’s not just like, his opinion, man.
