“Big Lebowski” Star Jeff Bridges Reveals he’s Suffering from Lymphoma

“Big Lebowski” star Jeff Bridges has revealed he’s been diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer.

Making the announcement on Twitter Monday evening, the 70-year-old Oscar winner said he’s starting treatment and the “prognosis is good.” He went on to write, “Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good. I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery.”

Bridges — whose 40-year career has included starring roles in films like “True Grit,” “The Jagged Edge,” “The Fisher King” and “Iron Man” — also encouraged fans to vote in the November 3rd election, writing, “We’re all in this together.”
