Hollywood Elsewhere respectfully declines to attend the 2015 Cannes Film Festival screenings of Mark Osborne‘s The Little Prince. Even if I was more favorably disposed, the fact that Jeff Bridges voices “the Aviator” would be a problem for me. His voice has become less and less appealing as he’s gotten older. He opens his mouth and it’s like “schnawwrr-roahhrrahhr-yeahhhrrauhp.” His young-man voice in Stay Hungry, Last American Hero, The Last Picture Show and Against All Odds had a dynamic vitality that worked. I was even down with his going-to-seed voice in The Big Lebowski. But starting around four or five years ago (Crazy Heart, Tron: Legacy, True Grit) Bridges began to sound like Foghorn Leghorn.
