The 25 Most Talented Children From Famous Families

5. Jeff Bridges

Career: Actor-Musician
Famous Family: Actor Lloyd Bridges (father); writer-actress Dorothy Bridges (mother); actor Beau Bridges (brother)

A staple of screens both big and small since first appearing on television with his dad and brother on Sea Hunt, Jeff Bridges is unstoppable; there isn't a genre or character type the man hasn't mastered.

From a teenager in love in The Last Picture Show (for which he earned his first of six Oscar nominations) to The Dude in The Big Lebowski to cranky, one-eyed Rooster Cogburn in True Grit, what can't he do?

A lifelong music lover (Bridges played piano as a child and has been known to kick back with his guitar on set), after winning an Oscar for playing a washed-up musician in 2009's Crazy Heart, Bridges signed a deal with a major record label and worked with T-Bone Burnett to release his second album, simply titled Jeff Bridges, in 2011.
