Can we all have Jeff Bridges' it-takes-two marriage to Sue?

Bridges "Jeff Bridges loves his wife, and that makes him even better."

That was a tweet of mine from the Ministry's live coverage of the Golden Globes last week, after the actor thanked his wife Sue Bridges so beautifully in his acceptance speech.

Saturday, he kicked it up a notch, bringing her up on stage with him, behind the scenes at the SAG Awards, when asked about what it was like to raise three girls.

"My wife did such a wonderful job, but like my dad, I was gone for a lot of the time. I love my girls very much, and my wife has raised them beautifully. Sue, why don't you come out here for a second?

"Ladies and gentleman," he said, "Sue!"

And he didn't leave her out on a limb: "The question is about raising daughters -- what did you do?," he asked, his arm around her under the spotlights. "I said most of the time you were there. I did my bit, but I blame you ... "

"He was fun," said Sue, "and I was constant."

Well, there you have it: No question, Sue is the glue.

What's it like when the two get ready for an event like this? "Oh, he had a massage," she said. "I had, like, the troops in."

"I get a bit of narcolepsy at times like these," Jeff said.

As Sue said, he's the fun one. Looks like the family is constant.
