Costume Designer Mark Bridges Talks Broadway Beginnings, ‘News Of The World’ & The Time He Won A Jet Ski At The Oscars

One of his first big breaks was when he was hired for Hard Eight by a 25-year-old Paul Thomas Anderson. “[We] had very little money for Hard Eight, but had a good time making it. It was a lot of fun. We lived at the casino that we shot at. Of course, we didn’t have much money, but it was shot in Reno, and at the time, Reno was really the land of thrift stores,” Bridges notes. “So, it was perfect. I needed clothes for no money, and they had all the resources right there.”

In his relationship with the auteur, Bridges found longevity. In the decades since Hard Eight, the pair have reteamed on seven other acclaimed features—including Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice and Phantom Thread. And recently, they joined forces once again on a highly anticipated film that has yet to be titled, starring Bradley Cooper, Benny Safdie and Cooper Hoffman. “It’s 25 years we’ve been working together,” Bridges marvels, “so that’s exciting that we’re still going at this point. Paul and I work the way that we have always worked.”

I watched "Blow" just because Mark Bridges did the costumes for it!
