Oscar winner Jeff Bridges, who has been receiving treatment for lymphoma, has said that his cancer is in "remission", and that a tough battle with Covid-19 is "in the rear view mirror".
The 71-year-old Big Lebowski star shared the update in a post on his website, writing: "My cancer is in remission - the 9" x 12" mass has shrunk down to the size of a marble.
"My Covid is in the rear view mirror," he continued. "Covid kicked my a** pretty good, but I'm double vaccinated & feeling much better now."
The actor and his wife of 44 years Susan Geston both contracted the virus.
Bridges said his medical team had been "concentrating on getting me off of the oxygen assistance, which until recently I've been needing to walk around".
"I had a goal - walking my daughter, Hayley down the aisle," he explained.

"Thanks to Zach [Wermers, physical therapist] & my terrific medical team, I was able to, not only walk Hay down the aisle, but do the father/Bride dance with her WITHOUT OXYGEN."
Bridges said he is "excited" to get back to work on his new thriller series The Old Man, which was delayed after he was diagnosed last year with lymphoma - cancer of the lymphatic system.
