Michael J. Fox, aged 62, has openly discussed his lack of fear regarding death in a recent update.

Michael J. Fox has faced a challenging journey since his Parkinson’s diagnosis. Initially, he kept his diagnosis private, but in the decades that followed, he became a prominent advocate for raising awareness about the disease. The star of “Back to the Future” has been vocal about the hardships associated with Parkinson’s disease, and his fans have witnessed the impact it has had on him.

In a recent update, Fox has reaffirmed his optimistic outlook, stating that he does not fear death as a result of his health struggles.

It’s evident that Michael J. Fox has led a complex life, marked by stark contrasts between its highs and lows. Diagnosed in the early 1990s, Fox transitioned from being an actor at the peak of his career to someone confronting the challenge of dealing with significant health issues for the rest of his life.


Despite keeping his diagnosis a private matter for seven years, Fox has been unwavering in his efforts to raise both funds and awareness, all in pursuit of the ultimate goal of finding a cure.

His positive outlook has been undeniably inspiring, even though the actor has admitted that maintaining it becomes more challenging as he grows older.

“I’m not gonna lie. It’s gettin’ hard, it’s gettin’ harder. It’s gettin’ tougher,” the retired actor told CBS Sunday Morning anchor Jane Pauley earlier this year in April.

“Every day it’s tougher. But, but, that’s, that’s the way it is. I mean, you know, who do I see about that?”

In a more recent update, the iconic actor referred to himself as a “tough son of a bitch” and revealed he isn’t afraid of dying.

“One day I’ll run out of gas,” Fox admitted, as per People.

“One day I’ll just say, ‘It’s not going to happen. I’m not going out today.’ If that comes, I’ll allow myself that. I’m 62 years old. Certainly, if I were to pass away tomorrow, it would be premature, but it wouldn’t be unheard of. And so, no, I don’t fear that.”

In any case, I think we can all agree that Fox is rightly regarded as a legend in the entertainment industry.

We wish him all the very best moving forward!
