Michael J. Fox Opens Up About Recent Struggles with Parkinson’s Disease: My ‘Memory Is Shot’


Michael J. Fox has had to do a lot of adjusting as he navigates his life and career with Parkinson’s disease, and despite his generally upbeat demeanor, it hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows. He’s had good times and incredibly dark times, and recently spoke about how difficult it is to be an actor when you can’t memorize lines effectively. “My short-term memory is shot,” the 59-year-old told People recently. “I always had a real proficiency for lines and memorization. And I had some extreme situations where the last couple of jobs I did were actually really word-heavy parts. I struggled during both of them.”
