Jeff Bridges has revealed he wanted Maggie Gyllenhaal to play his love interest in Crazy Heart because he’d always “admired her acting“.

The Hollywood star – who scooped the Best Actor Oscar for his performance as alcoholic country musician Bad Blake – said Maggie was top of his wish list to play the young reporter he falls for.

He said: “I’ve been following her, she’s a great actress, she disappears into the role and becomes that person. She was on the top of my list of actresses that I kind of imagined in that role.”

Jeff, 60, had no qualms about the age-gap on screen between him and 32-year-old Maggie.

“I thought about having a more age-appropriate relationship, but somehow the story didn’t lend itself to that, it was better to be this way,” he said.

“As far as how that felt, I mean, I think of myself as 25,” he laughed.

“I can’t believe I’m 60 years old, come on!”
