Michael J. Fox

In a recent interview, beloved actor Michael J. Fox opened up about his struggle with memory loss, particularly regarding his Hollywood heartthrob days and his short-lived relationship with Susanna Hoffs, the lead singer of the Bangles.

During a conversation with the Sunday Times, Fox reflected on his illustrious career and his upcoming documentary, “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie.” The star of iconic films like “Family Ties” and “Back to the Future” delved into the wild period of his life when he was one of the most sought-after actors and eligible bachelors in the world.

Laughing, Fox remarked, “I dated so many girls, some of them I can’t even remember. Hahaha! I mean, I dated Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles, and I can’t even remember it. But that’s just one example.”

He went on to recount another extraordinary memory from that time, recalling an event where he found himself seated next to Princess Diana at the 1985 premiere of “Back to the Future.”

“I really had to pee. And that’s all I remember,” Fox shared with the Sunday Times. “I had just been given a long list of rules, like not speaking unless spoken to, and not standing unless she stood. So, I was thinking, ‘How do I calculate the logistics of going to the bathroom?’ I couldn’t simply say, ‘Excuse me, I need to use the loo!’ Consequently, I endured the discomfort throughout the entire event. That was the norm during that phase of my life.”

In addition to discussing his glamorous past, Fox opened up about his ongoing journey with Parkinson’s disease, a condition known to cause memory difficulties, as well as physical challenges, according to the National Institutes of Health. His forthcoming documentary explores his Parkinson’s diagnosis and how he has embraced optimism and humor to cope with the illness.

While striving to lead a life filled with joy, Fox acknowledged the significance of acknowledging the pain and losses that come with his condition. He believes that being honest about these experiences has made his life more profound and genuine over time.

“The pain isn’t so much about the movement itself but rather the inability to move,” Fox explained to the Sunday Times. “When you freeze and that lack of movement fills you with energy, it becomes this persistent burning sensation.”

Despite the hardships he faces, Fox emphasized that he doesn’t seek sympathy. He has come to realize that most people don’t dwell on his struggles because they have their own challenges to contend with. He chooses to persevere and move forward, finding potential stories to share along the way. However, he remains cognizant that life doesn’t come with guarantees.

“I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. Yes, it hurts a lot, but you learn that it doesn’t matter. You tough it out and keep going,” Fox concluded. “Perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned from it, but that’s all. There’s no receipt you can present to life to request a refund.”
