Jeff Bridges feels everything in life became "hyper-precious" amid his health struggles. The 72-year-old actor was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2020 and he was also hit hard by COVID-19 - but Jeff believes his two-year "health adventure" has actually helped him to look at life through a new lens.

The actor - who revealed in 2021 that his tumour had shrunk - shared: "I got cancer and chemo and then COVID on top of that.

And the chemo stripped me of my immune system so I got the COVID pretty bad. "I was sick for about two years and [it was] very dreamlike, you know. " Jeff spent months in hospital at the height of his health struggles.

However, he always tried to retain a positive outlook on life, and he admits that the experience has had a lasting impact on him.
