Jeff Bridges & Amber Valletta for Marc O’Polo

We all know Jeff Bridges from his legendary performance as ‘The Dude’ in the 1998 Coen brothers classic ‘The Big Lebowski’. Reading the interview he did with Marc O’Polo, the German brand of which he is now ‘the face’ with Amber Valetta, it appears that Jeff Bridges the actor and “the Dude” Lebowski are not that different. Like Lebowski, Jeff Bridges is laid-back, relaxed, true to himself and he simply goes with the flow. Jeff Bridges even wrote a book with his long time friend and buddhist teacher, Bernie Glassman, called ‘The Dude and the Zen master’.

However, that was not the last time Bridges felt closely related to one of his characters. One of my favourite films of Jeff Bridges is ‘Crazy Heart’, the film for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor in 2009, and according to Bridges, it was one of his favourite projects because he got to bring his ‘passion’ into his work. Because apart from being a laid-back buddhist, talented actor, and an all-round awesome guy, this silver fox knows a thing or two about guitars and singing as well. Listen to his husky country songs on Spotify.

Wondering how he made the gig to model for the German based brand? Here’s what Marc O’Polo said about their choice:

Marc O’Polo’s Fall-Winter 2013-2014 campaign is grounded in the brand’s signature philosophy, summed up in the slogan ‘follow your nature’. We decided to bring in an ambassador, a real protagonist embodying our values. We did not take the search lightly. We sought someone real. Someone who is at peace with himself or herself, and stays committed to his or her decisions.

I think it’s safe to say that Marc O’Polo nailed it, with both Jeff Bridges and Amber Valletta. Check out the pictures below and tell me that is not one interesting, attractive (in general, not in a gross way), and unique person staring at you in beautiful autumn/winter wear.
