20th October 2020

Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges has revealed that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

On Monday evening, the 70-year-old actor took to Twitter and channeled his most famous character, The Dude from "The Big Lebowski" to announce his diagnosis. 

He wrote: "As the Dude would say.. New S— has come to light. I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma. 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.

Lymphoma is a serious form of cancer that attacks part of the body's immune system and can quickly travel to other areas of the body.

In a second tweet, Bridges expressed gratitude to his family and friends for their support and reminded his fans to go out and vote in the upcoming presidential election. 

He said: "I'm profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes.  And, while I have you, please remember to go vote. Because we are all in this together. Vote.org. Love, Jeff"
