From Tron to The Big Lebowski Jeff Bridges has been in such a wide variety of movies that there is probably at least one of his roles that you love. Bridges recently got to see just how many people truly love him when he received an outpouring of support after he revealed he’d been diagnosed with cancer. While undergoing treatment, Bridges also had to deal with COVID, and the actor now reveals that the two things together may have very nearly killed him.

In a new interview with People, Jeff Bridges says that due to the fact that undergoing chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma had seriously damaged his immune system, he had little natural defense against COVID-19. As a result, Bridges spent five months in the hospital fighting a virus that he says was much worse than the cancer. The actor explains…

I had no defenses. That’s what chemo does — it strips you of all your immune system. I had nothing to fight it. COVID made my cancer look like nothing. I was pretty close to dying. The doctors kept telling me, ‘Jeff, you’ve got to fight. You’re not fighting.’ I was in surrender mode. I was ready to go. I was dancing with my mortality.
