The Big Lebowski star Jeff Bridges has gone bald for a shocking new role in comic book adaptation IRON MAN. The actor, who plays Obadiah Stane in the highly-anticipated new movie admits he wasn't told to shave his head for the film, but felt his character would look great with no hair - and a long grey beard. He says, "I didn't have to be bald but I kind of have always wanted to be bald. My wife likes it. "And, as for the beard, I've been gradually getting used to having a grey beard. I had that moment when my eyes popped and I was like, 'Oh my God.' Now I don't care."
