Jeff Bridges Speaks About How Cancer Helped Him Realize His Mortality

Jeff Bridges is opening up about how much he’s learned about life since his cancer diagnosis.

The star revealed last week that he is battling lymphoma. Yesterday, he shared on his website that “new s—t has come to light” because of his health issues.

“This cancer thing is bringing on feelings of preciousness, and gratitude, and good old fashion love, and lots of it, big time,” he wrote. “I’m feeling so much of it comin’ my way, and man, I appreciate it. It’s contagious, all this love, like some kind of positive virus.”

He then thanked all of his fans and friends for their support.

“It feels good to get all the well wishes and love!” he said, adding, “I’m realizing if I have s—t to share, now’s the time.”

We love you, Jeff.
