Veteran actor Jeff Bridges is planning to add children’s author to his extensive resumé after teaming up with his eldest daughter for the special project.

“The Big Lebowski” star, who has also established himself as a musician and a photographer, reveals he likes to find ways to include his kids in his professional career so he has started penning a kids’ story with 33-year-old daughter Isabelle.

He tells People.com, “I try to create as many experiences as I can to hang out with my kids. When you’re an adult, you gotta work. So I invented this word – plorking – a combination of playing and work…

“Isabelle, my oldest girl, we’re working on a children’s book together.”

Bridges has also recruited his second child Jessie, who has served as his film set assistant for years, to open for his band The Abiders’ new tour, while his youngest girl Hayley, 28, is helping to design the actor’s new home.

He isn’t the first celebrity to pen stories for kids – fellow celebrities including Jamie Lee Curtis, Julianne Moore, Jim Carrey, Jessica Lange, Ricky Martin and rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne have also tested their creative writing skills in recent years.
