Michael J Fox said he “can’t even remember” dating The Bangles singer Susanna Hoffs.
Fox, 61, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the age of 29, whose symptoms include memory loss.
The actor is currently promoting his upcoming AppleTV+ documentary, QUIET, about his life and illness, directed by Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim (An uncomfortable truth).
By 1985, Fox was like one of the biggest stars in the world thanks to back-to-back hits Family ties, back to the future And teenage wolf.
“When I look at this time in the [documentary] it just seems crazy,” Fox said The times in a new interview.
“Look at all the girls I’ve dated. I can’t even remember some of them. hahaha I mean, I dated Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles, and I don’t even remember it. But that’s just an example. Things like that happened all the time,” he said.
Fox and Hoffs briefly dated in 1986. Hoffs later married filmmaker Jay Roach (Austin Powers) 1993.
Elsewhere in the interview, Fox admitted that living with Parkinson’s was becoming increasingly difficult. “I don’t want to get the violins out. I broke my hand, my elbow, my humerus, my other humerus, my shoulder, my face and a lot more,” he said.
“And all that stuff is amplified by the electricity of the tremors. So yes, it hurts a lot. But what you learn is that nobody backs down. It’s just life. It does not matter. You suck it up and move on. And maybe there is a story to tell in it. But only that. There is no slip you can show in a shop window for a refund.”
Fox announced his diagnosis in 1998 and announced he would be retiring in 2020.
His eponymous charity recently celebrated $1.5bn (£1.2bn) research programs for Parkinson’s disease.
Nevertheless: A film by Michael J. Fox May 12th in cinemas and on AppleTV+.
