Jeff Bridges says his tumor has ‘drastically shrunk’


Some solid good news out of Lala land.  Big Lebowski actor Jeff Bridges says he is making progress in his battle with lymphatic cancer.

Jeff announced on his website that a new protocol (treatment) he’s doing is working and his tumor has shrunk.

‘I go in for CAT scan to see if my new protocol is shrinking my tumor,’ the Oscar winner said. ‘Turns out it’s working beautifully. The thing has drastically shrunk.’

Bridges said that his mood took a swing downward after learning of news of the deadly riots in the U.S. Capitol.

‘I turn on the TV to find out what’s going in the world, and….well…I don’t have to you what’s goin’ on,’ Bridges said. ‘To see our country attacking itself broke my heart.  A question rose in me – what’s an individual to do in a situation like this?’ Bridges said. ‘My mentor, Rozzell Sykes, came to mind. His mantra was Be Love.’

Bridges is seen in one of his tweets with his new companion, Monty.
