Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin bring some 'True Grit' to Beverly Hills

Jeff Bridges and Beau Bridges at True Grit screening

Jeff Bridges was nothing but smiles Thursday night at an industry screening of his new movie “True Grit” at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills. 

True Grit pictures The Oscar winner was surrounded by family members -- including wife Susan, daughter Hayley and actor brother Beau Bridges -- as he made his way to seats in the center of the theater, greeting well-wishers along the way.

In the remake of the 1969 classic western, Jeff Bridges plays Rooster Cogburn, a role originated by John Wayne for which he won his first –- and only –- Oscar. The story revolves around a 14-year-old girl who enlists the help of U.S. marshals to help track down the man who killed her father.

Josh Brolin, who plays the murderous Tom Chaney, sat a few rows behind Bridges with actress wife Diane Lane, while other cast members and crew -– teen standout Hailee Steinfeld, who plays central character Mattie Ross, veteran actor Barry Pepper and co-director Ethan Coen, and cinematographer and longtime Coen brothers collaborator Roger Deakins -- were also in the house.

Also spotted: “The Social Network” star Justin Timberlake; Kim Darby, who played Mattie in the 1969 film; Catherine O’Hara; Timothy Olyphant of "Justified"; and Anton Yelchin, who will be appearing in the Jodie Foster movie "The Beaver" alongside Mel Gibson.

"True Grit" is scheduled to open Dec. 22.

Why Josh Brolin simply can't be Sean Penn's neighbor

Josh-brolin-v-man If Sean Penn needs a cup of sugar, he can count Josh Brolin out. Brolin recently revealed he was thisclose to purchasing a home in Los Angeles across the street from Penn's but backed out at the last minute.

Raised in the California ranch community of Paso Robles, Brolin is used to open spaces but was almost lured to the A-list enclaves of L.A.

"I was like, 'I can't pay this amount of money,'" he tells the latest issue of V Man magazine. "You come from a ranch and you're used to space."

He and wife Diane Lane still dwell in Paso Robles and are in the process of purchasing another ranch in the area, which is described as "a strange and alluring mix of prison complexes and wine country."

Sounds as if Penn would enjoy Brolin's 'hood, if you ask us.
