Jeff Bridges says he has lymphoma, cites good prognosis

 

Jeff Bridges says he is being treated for lymphoma and his prognosis is good.

 

The 70-year-old actor channeled his The Dude character from “The Big Lebowski” in a statement on social media about the diagnosis Monday evening.

 

He said he understands the disease is serious. He expressed gratitude to his family, friends and medical team and promised to keep fans posted on his recovery.

 

Bridges is a seven-time Oscar nominee known for his roles in “Starman,” “True Grit,” “The Last Picture Show” and many other films. He won an Academy Award in 2010 for “Crazy Heart” and was most recently nominated for playing a grizzled lawman in “Hell or High Water.”

Hope for the best.

 

One of the most amazing acting performances I've ever seen was his in Fearless (from 1993).  I think about that movie all the time, and it's probably been >20 years since I last saw it.  It is beautiful and haunting.  Can't recommend it enough.  Not an easy watch, but so worth it.

Thanks for the tip, I love Jeff Bridges movies, he's a really good actor and seems pretty genuine as a human.
