Most people know actor Jeff Bridges best for his starring role in the movie “The Big Lebowski” where he played a pot-smoking loser known as “The Dude.” Until recently, his private life has been very private. In fact, the only thing up until now that most people knew about the award-winning actor is that he’s been married to the same woman for over 30 years, is father of three children, and is the son of actor Lloyd Bridges. Oh, and he is an advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
But looks can be deceiving. For the past 12 years, Bridges and his wife have been practicing a new form of Wicca, which incorporates the smoking of medical marijuana in its rituals. In fact, Bridges is considered a Wiccan Priest going by the name of Rev. Jeb Xenith. According to a fellow Wiccan practitioner, asking to remain anonymous, “Rev. Xenith is one of the most faithful members in our coven and we are blessed to have him as a leader. His strong belief in overcoming obstacles laid before us by our fellow man is a testament to his unfettered love of Mother Gaia (Earth). He is definitely the most laid back person I know.”
We were unable to secure an interview with Bridges to discuss his involvement with the New Wiccan Church of SoCal, but we’ll continue to monitor the story as it unfolds. It is rumored that actor and director Seth Rogan belongs to the same coven and this too will be followed up with more information being reported as we uncover it.
