COVID-19 has dramatically changed the lives of people around the world. It was an uphill battle and it continues to this day in many parts of the world. The pandemic has lost many precious lives and has finally given so many a whole new perspective on life.
Big Lebowski actor Jeff Bridges recently shed some light on how he nearly became one of the precious lives we lost along the way and how his fight for his health has brought a new life. A whole new look at what life is like for him.
Bridge was in worse condition than one could have last year as he not only battled COVID-19 but also cancer at the same time. The actor has a huge tumor measuring about 12 x 9 inches. Bridges commented it was like having a small child inside her body.
There was widespread panic and anxiety about possibly facing their own deaths when the pandemic first hit, but Bridges has endured it well. Bridges reveals that his wife Susan is not sure he will escape the terrible ordeal alive and that Bridges herself is equally worried. He talked about how doctors urged him that he had to battle both terrible conditions; The doctors were concerned that Bridges had given up and truth be told, he did. “I’m already in surrender mode,” said the 72-year-old. “I’m ready to go. I’m dancing to my death.”
However, despite all expectations, Bridges stepped out from the other side a new man. Bridges is currently COVID-19 free and indicates that his cancer is in remission.
Bridges says the battle has given him a whole new perspective on life. He said, “Love is the deal.” Bridges revealed that after gazing at his own death, his appreciation for love in his life has grown in terms of both giving and receiving. The actor has drawn the most positive lesson from the experience that he can, and fans, friends and family are all thrilled to see him grow hotter and more grounded.
Bridges has a new show coming out on June 18 called “The Old Man.” Fans are excited and hope to continue to see Bridges on screen for many years to come.
