Michael J. Fox ‘doesn’t remember’ dating Susanna Hoffs

In a new interview, Michael J. Fox opened up on living with Parkinson's disease.

Michael J. Fox has admitted that he 'doesn't remember' dating The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs in the 1980s.

The 61-year-old is currently out doing the media rounds advertising his latest project, Apple TV's Still, which is actually about Fox's own life.

Directed by Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim, the new doc will also see Fox lift the lid on living with Parkinson's disease, something he has lived with since he was 29.

One of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease is memory loss, as Fox admits that he doesn't remember his time with Hoffs.

However, the time that Fox and Hoffs dated was when the Back to the Future star was in the prime of his acting career, following the release of the first film in the time-travelling series in 1985.

The celeb pair dated briefly in 1986, but in a new interview with The Times, Fox said that he went through a few girlfriends during that time.

He said: "When I look at that period in the movie it just seems crazy.

"Look at all the girls I dated. Some of them I can’t even remember.

"I mean, I dated Susanna Hoffs from The Bangles, and I can’t even remember it.

"But that’s just an example. Stuff like that happened all the time."

Fox also admitted in the interview he forgot what happened when he sat next to the late Princess Diana for the premiere of Back to the Future.

"I sat next to Princess Diana during the world premiere of Back to the Future and I had to pee. And that’s all I remember," he said.

Elsewhere in the interview, Fox opened up on living with Parkinson's, admitting that it is getting harder.

After being diagnosed in 1991, Fox revealed it publicly in 1998 and entered a 'second retirement' in 2020.

Speaking to The Times about living with the disease - which has symptoms such as shaking, slow movements and stiffnes - Fox said: "I don’t want to get the violins out. I’ve broken my hand, my elbow, my humerus, my other humerus, my shoulder, my face and some other s*** too.

"And all that stuff is amplified by the electricity of the tremors. So, yes, it hurts a lot.

"But what you learn is that nobody gives a s***. It’s just life. It doesn’t matter. You suck it up and you move on.

"And there might be a story to tell in it. But only that. There’s no chit that you can present to a window for a refund."
