Jeff Bridges announced Monday that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma.
“As the Dude would say,” the actor tweeted, referring to his “Lebowski” character, “New S**T has come to light.”
“Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good,” Bridges said.
In a follow-up tweet, he urged everyone to vote in the Nov. 3 election, saying “we are all in this together.”
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. https://t.co/6sAU4MYixl
