Losing the one whom you love dearly is one of the hardest things. Ryan Reynolds, recently, remembered his father whom he lost to a disease called Parkinson’s as another Canadian actor suffers from the same disease. The Canadian actor had posted an emotional post on his Twitter for Michael J. Fox.
Michael J. Fox is a retired actor who gained popularity for his role in the sitcom named Family Ties (1982 – 1989). He is famous for his role as protagonist Marty McFly in the Back to the Future film trilogy (1985–1990), a critical and commercial success. Fox recently took the stage at the Sundance Film Festival to premiere his upcoming documentary Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie. While Apple will release the film this year, the Deadpool actor appreciated the efforts of Fox. Let us see what the emotional message of Reynolds is about.
Ryan Reynolds felt nostalgic as Michael Fox’s Still will come out soon
In My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, the Red Notice actor opened up about his relationship with his father. Although when the actor was young, he wasn’t able to let his father know he loved him. However, he lost his father because of a disease called Parkinson’s. “I lost my dad to Parkinson’s,” wrote the actor on Twitter. Michael J. Fox, who got diagnosed with the same disease when he was 29, starred in a documentary about his life and his disease. While it got a wide emotionally positive response at the Sundance Film Festival, Reynolds also sent the actor a message.
I lost my dad to Parkinson’s so besides @realmikefox being a friend, role model, generational talent and Canadian, I cannot wait to see ‘Still’ on @AppleTVPlus. It’ll soon reside on the MJF anthology DVD shelf in my heart. Btw, The Frighteners is criminally underrated. pic.twitter.com/mMsBndjTAP

While feeling nostalgic, the actor remembered his father. Thus, he understands how painful it is to be in the condition that Fox has been in for a long time now. Although the Deadpool actor is an idol for many, he acknowledges Fox as his friend, role model, and generational talent. While appreciating the Canadian actor, the Wrexham AFC owner also expressed his excitement for the upcoming documentary, Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie.
Of course, the soon-to-be father of the fourth baby cannot post anything out of style. Before ending his message, the actor gives a shout-out to Fox’s film, The Frighteners. “Btw, The Frighteners is criminally underrated,” wrote Reynolds.
