The Dude has triumphed over death as well as cancer and COVID.
In an interview published on Thursday, Jeff Bridges said that his struggle with cancer made him susceptible to COVID-19 before immunizations against the virus were widely accessible, and that this placed the “Big Lebowski” actor’s life in danger.
The 72-year-old Oscar winner, who spent more than four months in the hospital, told E! News that chemotherapy “wipes away your immune system,” so when COVID attacked her, she had no immune system left to fight it. “I was just so close to passing out a few times there,”
Bridges admitted to the media that he was “in surrender mode” and concerned that he wouldn’t be able to accompany his daughter down the aisle, but the doctors advised him to keep fighting.
He went on to say, “With a terrific medical staff, amazing trainers, and my family, everyone brought me back.
In October 2020, Bridges said that he had received a lymphoma diagnosis, which had caused him to “appreciate my mortality.” He had “dramatically diminished” his tumour by January of the following year. Bridges declared himself to be in remission in September of 2021, and early this year, he claimed to be in “terrific” health.
