Jeff Bridges has shaved his head amid his ongoing battle with cancer. "The Big Lebowski" actor sported his new do on Tuesday in an Instagram post that provided his fans with his latest health update.
"Feeling good," Bridges captioned a photo of himself with a puppy on his lap. "Shaved my head. Got a puppy - Monty. Had a Birthday - 71, man," he added.
Bridges revealed that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma in October and said he was feeling positive about treatment.
"As the Dude would say.. New S--T has come to light. I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma," he posted to social media at the time. "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."
He followed the announcement up with a heartfelt blogpost in which he opened up about the cancer and the emotions he has been experiencing since his diagnosis.
"This cancer thing is bringing on feelings of preciousness, and gratitude, and good old fashion love, and lots of it, big time," Bridges 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."
Bridges explained that he was feeling good about his journey ahead.
"This cancer is making me appreciate my mentality, appreciate impermanence. I'm realizing if I have s--t to share, now's the time."
Bridges has been nominated seven times for an Oscar, including for one of his early roles in the black-and-white movie "The Last Picture Show," finally winning for his performance of an aging country singer in 2009's "Crazy Heart." He also starred in "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" next to Clint Eastwood, and "The Fabulous Baker Boys," in which he played a jazz musician alongside his brother Beau.
