Actor Jeff Bridges says he is being treated for lymphoma and his diagnosis is good.
The Diagod character wrote in a statement on social media from The Big Lebowski on Monday evening, tweeting “New S ** has been published”.
As Dude would say .. the new S ** has come out.
I have lymphoma. Although it is a deadly disease, I consider myself lucky to have a great team and the doctors are very good.
I am starting treatment and will keep you in my recovery post.

He said he understood the disease was fatal. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts in the lymphatic system, the body’s immune network, which includes the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus gland, and bone marrow. The main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Bridges expressed gratitude to his family, friends and medical team and promised fans to keep posting on his recovery.
In the second tweet, he reminded Americans “Go vote”.
Bridges is a seven-time Oscar-nominated star, best known for her roles in Starman, True Greet, The Last Picture Show and many more. In 2010 he won an Academy Award for Crazy Heart and was recently nominated for Griezald Ainman in Hell or High Water.
Bridge is the son of actor Lloyd and Dorothy Bridge, both of whom died in 1998.
News of his illness was greeted with disappointment by his fans.
Hey 2020, Jeff Bridges let it go!
