What would you ask long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad?
- Oct 20 '16
King: Did you go watch your father do scenes?
Bridges: Oh I remember watching my dad, going to visit him on a western and seeing him on the ladder with two other guys, you know, tough, and they've got the reins and they're going like this.
King: They're not on a horse?
Bridges: They're not on a horse and I couldn't stop laughing. And they said, "Get the kid outta here." But my dad, unlike a lot of guys in showbiz, he encouraged all of us kids to get in, become actors. He loved it so much, all the different aspects of it.
King: He was great.
Bridges: He was a wonderful guy, wasn't he? When there was a kid part in Sea Hunt, you know, 'Come on, Jeff. Get out of school. Come play with Dad.'
