Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal
In the movie “Crazy Heart,” Jeff Bridges plays a country music star who used to be well-known but is now at the end of his career. At this point in his life, this character is thinking about giving up his job. He plays the part of Blake in the movie, and over the course of it, he and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s character, Jean, slowly but surely start to like each other.
The only problem is that he’s 28 years older than she is, which is a big difference.No one in the audience or the people making the movie ever says anything about how different their ages are. There is nothing inherently wrong with these combinations, even though they might look strange to someone who hasn’t seen them before.
