The Dude stays: Jeff Bridges discusses the gifts of life after cancer remission

The Dude holds, indeed. Jeff Bridges reflects on the gift that is life now that his cancer is in remission and he’s back full time.

Jeff Bridges was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2020. Additionally, while undergoing chemotherapy, he contracted Covid-19, which he said made cancer feel like “a piece of cake.” In a recent interview with The Guardian, the Oscar-winning actor discussed not only the difficulties of having both cancer and Covid, but the positive things that came out of it. As it turns out, both were quite a blessing.

“Dealing with your mortality makes things more precious. It’s a gift, man, to realize that I have eyes to see all these beautiful things in the world. I can feel the temperature of the day on my skin. I have a wife , who also loves me, my children, and I can bathe in that love. It’s all a gift.

So if you thought The Dude had taught us everything he knew by mixing the perfect White Russian or declaring that the Eagles stink, you’d be dead wrong. But that’s just like our opinion man.

Jeff Bridges, whose cancer went into remission last year, is fortunately back on campus. Bridges has not appeared in a feature film since 2018 Bad times at the El Royale, but his acting contributions are flowing again. He currently stars in the Hulu series The old man, which premiered in June and has already been renewed for a second season. The drama series marks Bridges’ return to the small screen for the first time since 2008.
