True Grit has an iPad app, Through The Lens of Jeff Bridges. Not only does this cowboy love to sing and play guitar, but he's a shutter-bug who has been taking on-set photos for years.

Bridges, who is tapped to land an Oscar nom for playing Rooster Cogburn, is also the subject of the PBS American Masters documentary Jeff Bridges: The Dude Abides (below). More outtakes (including Bridges painting) are here.

Watch the full episode. See more American Masters.
