Oprah's Next Door Neighbor Jeff Bridges, Home Wrecked in Mudslide


Now we know to whom Oprah was referring on video when she pointed to a neighbor's home that was decimated by the mudslides ... it was the home of actor Jeff Bridges.

The star of "The Big Lebowski" bought the home 3 years ago for $6.8 million. We're told the house could be a total loss, but it's impossible to know at this point because the debris makes the extent of damage almost impossible to assess. Bridges says at the very least, the 3,300 square foot home was "severely damaged."

Oprah trudged through the mud the day after the slides hit and pointed out the home, but never said who owned it.  

The slides have killed at least 17 people and 8 are still missing. A hundred homes were destroyed.

Jeff owned another home in Montecito but sold it for $16 million less than a year ago.
