After screening his documentary, STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie, at SXSW in Austin, Texas, Michael J. Fox provided a heartbreaking update on his Parkinson’s disease battle.
The 61-year-old, who was joined by his wife, Tracy Pollan, said that while “Parkinson’s sucks,” he “doesn’t have time to feel sorry for himself” as he navigates life with his neurological ailment diagnosed in 1991.
“Parkinson’s sucks, but it’s a great life, so thank you for that,” he remarked in a Q&A on Tuesday. “Pity is a non-violent type of maltreatment. I could weep myself, but I don’t have time for that.”
