Ah hahahahaha! Wonderful woman. We're all, we're all very fond of her. Very free-spirited.
Brandt can't watch though, otherwise he has to pay a hundred.

Bunny Lebowski was a minor antagonist from the 1998 film The Big Lebowski.
Bunny was portrayed by Tara Reid.
Born Fawn Knutsen, Bunny was originally from Minnesota. Running away from home she fell in with Jackie Treehorn and began making pornographic films for him. One of the films, Logjamming, was made with her German Nihilist friend Uli Kunkel under the screen name Karl Hungus. Bunny ran up a considerable amount of debt to a number of people throughout town, including Treehorn.
At some point prior to January 1991 Bunny met the elderly millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski's. As his first wife had died, Bunny married Lebowski in order to be his trophy wife and moved in to his mansion. There was little if any love between either one of them, although her husband put on more of an act about caring for her than she did in return. Even so he was rapidly tiring of her. Lebowski's daughter Maude Lebowski made no secret of her dislike for Bunny, feeling she was just there to separate her father from his money. Treehorn meanwhile was tired of waiting for Bunny to pay him back what she owed, and sent two of his thugs to rough up her husband. Unfortunately they beat up the wrong Jeffrey Lebowski and urinated on his rug. That Lebowski, who called himself The Dude, stopped by a few days later seeking compensation for his ruined rug. Bunny's husband blew him off but the Dude tricked Brandt into giving him a rug. While the Dude was leaving he met Bunny, who immediately offered to perform oral sex on him for $1,000.
A few days later Bunny decided to go off and visit friends in Palm Springs. Not telling anyone she where she was going her husband and Brandt decided to tell people she had been kidnapped in order to justify withdrawing money from the Lebowski Foundation for a ransom. The nihilists took advantage of the situation by playing along with this kidnapping scheme. The Dude's friend Walter Sobchak was convinced that she was staging the kidnapping to get money out of Lebowski.
Eventually Bunny returned home, crashing her convertible into the fountain in front of Lebowski's mansion. While she stripped off her clothes and ran towards the pool it was up to Brandt to explain that Bunny had went off to visit friends to the Dude and Walter.
- Charlize Theron was originally going to play Bunny. Liv Tyler was also considered for the role.
