Jeff Bridges on 'wonderful' True Grit co-star Hailee Steinfeld


The Western remake True Grit, about a girl's quest to track down her father's killer, has garnered 10 Oscar nominations, among them nods for the film's stars Jeff Bridges and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld.

The veteran actor spoke about his motivations for playing hard-nosed US Marshal "Rooster" Cogburn and praised his 14-year-old co-star Hailee Steinfeld, who plays vengeful youngster Mattie Ross.

The Coen brothers' film is based on a novel by Charles Portis, originally made into a 1969 film which earned its star, John Wayne, his only Oscar.
