    Jeff Bridges has been diagnosed with lymphoma

    The 70-year-old actor took to Twitter to announce he is starting treatment for the cancer that develops in the cells of the immune system known as lymphocytes


    Bridges channelled his iconic character The Dude from 'The Big Lebowski' to update his fans on his health and shared that "the prognosis is good".

    The Oscar-winner wrote: "As the Dude would say.. New S*** has come to light.

    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.

    I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery."

    The 'True Grit' star has been inundated with well-wishes since announcing his diagnosis.

    Academy Award-winner Patricia Arquette wrote: "Sending you and your family love and healing."

    Comedienne Kathy Griffin tweeted: "Jeff, sending you the wish, the hope, that you get everything you need and anything you want."

    'Star Trek' star George Takei added: "You’re a fighter. You can beat this."

    Bridges thanked everyone for their messages of support and also reminded his fellow Americans to make sure they vote in the upcoming presidential election on November 3.

    He wrote: "I'm profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends.

    "Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. And, while I have you, please remember to go vote. Because we are all in this together.”
