Jeff Bridges has been diagnosed with cancer.

The Hollywood star announced Monday night that he’s been diagnosed with lymphoma. “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,” Bridges tweeted in part.

This one hits hard, and I think I can speak for fans everywhere when I say that we’re all pulling for Jeff Bridges.

Bridges is one of the most famous actors on the planet, and he’s also just a hell of a fascinating guy. He’s one of the few people in Hollywood who comes off as super chill.

Now, he’s been diagnosed with cancer, and has a huge fight in front of him. Life can be incredibly tough at times, and that’s how I’d sum up this situation.

Luckily, it sounds like Bridges is in a good place mentally and ready to fight cancer to the best of his abilities.
