Jeff Bridges revealed on his website that he caught COVID-19 in January and was hospitalized for weeks while undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.
Both Bridges and his wife tested positive for coronavirus after they were exposed where he was getting chemo treatments. She was in the hospital for 5 days, while he stayed for 5 weeks, Bridges wrote.
“The reason I’m there so long is because my immune system is shot from the chemo,” he wrote. “My dance with [COVID-19] makes my cancer look like a piece of cake.”
Bridges also announced that his cancer was in remission.
