you didn't get it. he said "go ahead and do it, see how that goes" which is ironic in itself, THEN he said "The difference between suppression and refraining. When you touch something hot, you don't have to repress the desire to touch it again". So it was IRONY, look it up. What he sais is basically, you don't have to surpress it anymore if you've done it, lost everything, maybe got a beating from the wife ;-) - then you might have learned your lesson and never consider it again.

A hollywierd star answers his casting call on Cheating. And just look at the lives of the stars who do.

Did you read the part about how he's been married to the same woman for 36 years and never been divorced? If that's 'hollywierd', we could us a lot more of that.

"Well, live and learn. Go ahead and do it, and we'll see how that goes,"

And bring home a disease, pass it on to your partner, then shrug your shoulders and say "I guess that's just the way it goes..."

I guess I can cross Jeff Bridges off of any potential guru list...

I think you need to read beyond the words. "we'll see how it goes", kinda like "how's that workin' out for ya?".

I think he was saying 'go ahead and do it" as a warning. Like "see what it will get you". His statement was about the desire that gets out of hand and is just as dangerous as acting on it. (I think that is what he meant - the article was not well-written.)
And if that is what he meant, I think he is right - the problem can turn into resentment for the other partner. If you find that person doesn't want you anymore, it's better than living with that disrespect.
Sometimes "go with your feelings" isn't nearly as freeing as it sounds.

Well at least he's honest which is a lot more than some people.

When I was young, I was trapped in a marriage with soemone I didn't like or respect. He made it easy for me to look in other directions to take my passion. After about 12 years, I realized, we were just INCOMPATIBLE in all things, we never BONDED, despite having 2 children, so we divorced. After about 8 years divorced, I found my MATE and we've been married 27 years, I've never looked anywhere else for my passion or anything from anyone else for that matter, because he fit the bill in all things for me. We are compatible, and compatibilty is what fosters contentment.

The most important lesson I learned in 61 years is, you cannot force someone to be what they're not, and that includes loyal. And while some people don't need to touch fire to know that it's hot.
others are attracted to the flame every time until one day, all is consumed by the flames.

There are some people on this thread admitting they have open marriages. There is no such thing. You are either married and loyal to that vow ...or not. You can defend it all you want, but when you love and respect someone, you don't give away the most intimate part of your marriage to someone else, I know this for a fact.

Great comment. I often meet the kinds of people that want to be loyal and say they are loyal. Say they are with God and and all that. And they still are liars, cheaters, manipulators, Im 34 so i am talking about the age range 24- 34. Most people that age have no substance at all and follow what others are doing period instead of leading their lives the right way on their own. So like you said i cant force someone to be loyal I have tried to with genuineness and down to earth ness but they are what they are and if they dont appreciate it they are not worth it anyhow because my value is worth much more than theirs and all that drama would not have happened in the first place.

"Well, live and learn. Go ahead and do it, and we'll see how that goes," he said.

Infidelity is a moment, marriage is a life time. Make the right decision for who you really gave your heart and soul .

Well Jeff, you go right ahead and do it. There are some of us out here that value loyalty and a sense of morality. Obviously you do not.

You, like the writer, have a stunning lack of comprehension. Amazing really.

Maybe you should read his comments again. He said that denying that desire - to cheat - could have detrimental effects on the marriage. From that I take the leap of logic that he is telling those who are married that they are taking a chance if they do not cheat. Either you follow your marriage vows or you do not. If you do not follow them and find it impossible to do so, then get a divorce.

Reread his comment. He really is not advocating cheating. It's more like telling the guy who insists on riding his bike backwards, down hill without a helmet, "Well, go on, give it a try. See how that works out for you."

Would he advocate riding the bike backwards down hill if at the bottom of the hill was a family with small children?

Hurting yourself is one thing. Hurting others is wrong.

Not really. He is saying that if you do not follow your desire, it could have a bad effect on your marriage. Really? Would he ask his wife for permission? Is his wife better off with a husband who lies to her and hides part of his life. I think not.
11:29 AM on 09/19/2013
Sounds like he did it, and she forgave him. Weird.. but whatever works, I guess.

Bridges speaks out both sides of his rear end. I wonder if the drugs have damaged his mind or just advancing dementia? One of the true scums of hollywood.

If you read this carefully you will see he is being consistent. It is pretty much a live and learn attitude. And a great guy.

Comments like that make me deeply demoralized at how twisted people can get. Jeff Bridges is a successful actor, father, husband and human being. He's won the Academy Award for best actor, the height of his trade, and he's a calm, sensible role model for millions of people. I'd suggest that you try some drugs, or some infidelity, as you seem deeply hate filled and unsatisfied with life.

Here is the contrast between a career in politics and a career in show business. A movie star like Jeff Bridges, a rock star like Mick Jagger, or a Hollywood mogul like Oliver Stone or Steven Spielberg, can have affairs and not ruin their show business careers. If fact, if these kinds of people have affairs with the right fellow celebrities, it might actually help their show business careers, thanks to tabloids like the NATIONAL ENQUIRER!

But don't ever do that kind of hanky-panky, if you want a lifelong political career of serving in public office. It is ironic that in a profession infamous for corruption, politicians are expected to squeaky-clean goodie two-shoes for the public to be elected. One such false move in your personal life, and your political career is over and done with!

That is of the many reasons I would rather be a rock music star, a country music star, a movie star, or a screenwriter and film director, than ever be President of the United States!

Hey, is he intending to run for Pope? A great change portends. With this novel approach toward marriage, he could double the convert rate in a short couple of years. And don't neglect the celebrations in divorce lawyer offices. Buy whiskey stock. Hollywood never ceases to provide us with great relationship advice.
