Michael J Fox has ‘broke his face’ due to his Parkinson’s disease.
The 61-year-old Back to the Future actor has battled the disease for more than 30 years and details the litany of injuries and broken bones he sustained during the degenerative disease.
He said in a cover interview for next week’s Variety magazine out Wednesday, May 17: “I broke this shoulder – I had it replaced. I broke this elbow. I broke that hand
“I had an infection that almost cost me this finger. i broke my face
“I broke that upper arm. And that sucked.”
Michael, who has four children with his wife Tracy Pollan, 62, and retired from acting in 2020, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991, a year after the release of Back to the Future Part III.
He added to Variety that the recent challenges he’s faced reminds him of when he first received the news he had Parkinson’s: “I have helpers around me most of the time, for in case I fall, and that lack of privacy is hard to deal with.” with.
“I’ve lost family members, I’ve lost my dog, I’ve lost my freedom, I’ve lost my health. I hesitate to use the term “depression” because I’m not qualified to diagnose it myself, but all the signs were there.”
He also said he has difficulty speaking because of his illness: “Sometimes I have a fleeting moment of disappointment when a really great joke comes out and is fruitless because people can’t understand what I’m saying.”
“It’s not like you can just repeat it. On arrival it is dead. But you find ways to navigate it.”
Michael founded the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in 2000, which has raised more than $1.75 billion to support research.
He told CBS Sunday Morning that the organization’s recently published study, which says researchers have discovered a biomarker for Parkinson’s, “changes everything” for those affected.
Michael added: “I know where we are right now. In five years they will be able to tell if you have it, if you will ever get it, and we will know how to treat it.”
