Jeff Bridges is sharing a health update almost two months after he first revealed that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma.

The True Grit star opened up about what’s new in his life on Monday, sharing that he’s “feeling good.”

“Here’s the latest,” he wrote on Twitter alongside a photo that showed him reclining outdoors with a smile on his face — and a puppy on his lap.

“Feeling good. Shaved my head. Got a puppy - Monty,” he added, noting that earlier this month he also celebrated his 71st birthday.

Over on his website, where he has launched an online journal, Bridges went into detail about a few other things that have been on his mind.

“’s the next batch of what I want to point out. Music - we need it, man & all our musicians are having a hell of a time making a living these days w/ the COVID deal,” he wrote, going on to give his “dear old friend" John Goodwin a shoutout.

He also shared a link to No Kid Hungry, writing, “The health of our children can serve as a compass, letting us know if we’re on course or not — we’re off course.”

Ending on a high note, the star included a video of surfers riding some massive waves. “It’s such a great reminder how wonderful life can be,” he wrote. “Be love.”
