Michael J. Fox has announced the awful news.

Michael J. Fox is one of the most lovable faces in Hollywood because of his acting abilities and charismatic personality. The actor has had his fair share of troubles with his Parkinson’s diagnosis but he has never let it stop him from living his life to the fullest.

The actor recently lost his mother, but of course, like any good son, he surely will not be forgetting her.

During his panel at the New York Comic-Con (NYCC), the star disclosed the loss of his mother a few weeks ago and talked about his mother Phyllis, honoring her memory.

He revealed during the panel that his mother never supported him taking on the role in Back to the Future. And it seems like she had good reason not to support it either.

But he went on to admit that his mother might have been right, he said, “I live for this kind of tired. It’ll be okay,” he had said to his mom, “To this day — well, till two weeks ago — my mother thought it was a really bad idea for me to do Back to the Future. She loved the movie, [but she was right], I got tired.”
