Jeff Bridges, Tara Reid, Big Lebowski; Workign Title Films

Dude, say what you will about Tara Reid, but at least the girl has an awesome imagination.

Following a recent benefit show at the Comedy Store in L.A., the actress casually dropped quite the bombshell on fans of Joel and Ethan Coen's cult classic The Big Lebowski while chatting about her upcoming projects.

"I have a movie coming out called The Fields. I have another one coming out that I produced with my brother called The Irishman," she told "And we'll be doing American Pie 4 this year and Big Lebowski 2 this year."

Whoa! Wait! What?! Let's back up on that very last part part, shall we?

Thankfully, that's just what a reporter for Austin360 did while interviewing the Coen brothers about their current flick, True Grit.

"I'm glad she's working on it," joked Ethan when the subject of Reid's comments came up, adding that, while they don't have any plans for a sequel, "we'll watch it when it comes out."

"Especially if Tara's in it," teased Joel.

Not surprisingly, a rep for Reid, who played former porn star Bunny Lebowski in the 1998 film, quickly came to her defense.

"She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make Big Lebowski 2 and have all the original cast members in it," the publicist told Entertainment Weekly. "So she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said."

Sounds like somebody's simply short a bowling pin. Or 10.
