Jeff Bridges regrets he didn't encourage his three daughters to carry on the Bridges acting dynasty. The 57-year-old actor grew up in a Hollywood household with his late father Lloyd and brother Beau - and he believes he could have pushed his daughters to join the family business.. He says, "I wasn't as encouraging as my father was with me. Dad really loved showbiz and wanted all his kids to go into it. I didn't discourage the girls neither did I make opportunities for them and I'm regretting it now. "They're all at the stage of their lives when they're questioning what they're going to do, so I say, 'You might want to consider acting.' "I wish I'd brought it up earlier."
