Jeff Bridges reveals his tumor is 'drastically' shrinking after lymphoma diagnosis

Jeff Bridges shared a positive health update, months after revealing hed been diagnosed with lymphoma. The beloved 71-year-old actor revealed his tumor is shrinking.

I go in for a CAT scan to see if my new protocol is shrinking the tumor. Turns out its working beautifully, Bridges wrote in his online journal. The thing has drastically shrunk.

The True Grit star said he came home elated with the news on Jan. 6, only to learn of the deadly Capitol riot.

I turn on the TV to find out what’s going in the world, and… well… I don’t have to tell you whats going on, he continued. To see our country attacking itself broke my heart. A question rose in me whats an individual to do in a situation like this?

Bridges said he thought of his mentor, artist Rozzell Sykes.

His mantra was BE LOVE, the actor added. Thats my path.

Bridges revealed he had been diagnosed with lymphoma on Oct. 19. In December, the actor showed off his newly shaved head and said he was feeling good. (He also got an adorable puppy.)
