The Internet Loves Jeff Bridges but Not as Much as Chris Pine Loves Him


Being awarded the Cecil B. deMille award is a wonderful honor, and Jeff Bridges made sure to give us one wondrous speech. From Chris Pine giving the award to Bridges, to Jeff Bridges getting up and talking about making a boat (? we’re still not sure), the entire interaction threw Twitter for a loop and those watching loved every moment of it.

Jeff Bridges has been around for quite some time and, if anything, Bradley Cooper owes him a lot.

Most of the responses were about how Bridges would be our cool family member we actually enjoy hanging out with.

Or maybe we just all wish he was our uncle.

It may be because his speech literally went on for fifteen minutes and he was talking about a boat?

Twitter was also quite in love with how in love Jeff Bridges was with his wife.

Don’t we all want to be on the same level as Jeff Bridges?

Even if, at that level, your best friend is your sibling.

But, you know who loved Jeff Bridges the most? Chris Pine.

Truly, the entire time Bridges was speaking, Chris Pine just stared at him as if he was looking at himself later in life.

He literally just had heart eyes when Bridges started talking about making his own boat.

And then we all began to theorize what was going on with Pine and Bridges.

Or perhaps Jeff Bridges is secretly Chris Pine’s dad.

No matter what, Chris Pine—like the rest of us—is just very proud of Jeff Bridges.
