Most "stars" are douchebags....they won't take time to recognize anyone unless it's someone who can make them some $$$. That being said, I think Jeff Bridges is kinda cool. He doesn't mind taking a minute w/a papparazo & turnin' it into solid gold....I just think he's different, which is REFRESHING, and down-to-earth.

Now...will the webmaster get these douches off this site that are doing their freeloading advertising? What a waste of space and time.

Camera guy just got Dudicised! Probably some White Russians were involved before this, eh Mr. Dude?

I dunno, maybe he was talking to someone close to him that has Alzheimer's. Either way, Jeff Bridges is completely badass.

that was weird. "recognize me??" maybe the camera guy is so used to taking pictures of celebrities all the time that he just wants to be a celebrity himself and be "recognized". so weird.

I would watch this but I can never make out a WORD this guy says.

My guess is that the cameraman may have been adopted and was saying "Please recognize me" to his birth mother. That would explain why he was getting emotional.
Jeff Bridges seems like a nice guy.

that was hopelessly lame. Emotional? Huh? Just lame. Nothing like Arthur Miller's great line "Attention must be paid!!!!!!"

Jeff seemed stoned. I don't like him in that condition

Everyone wants recognition .Loneliness is tough and sometimes we don't realize how lonely we are when we're trying to make our way through life.
Everyone gets lonely.There's no shame in that.So call a good friend and check in on them (or You)!

I think commenters #18 and #21 are on the right track...the cameraman probably has a long-lost parent or a loved one with some form of dementia. That was my first thought, anyway.

TMZ, it's your job to get into people's business. Get in contact with your cameraman and give us the scoop!
