Michael J Fox opens up about recent health struggles: "To get to that place is pretty dark"

<p>Michael J Fox has opened up about his recent health struggles. The actor and comedian, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, revealed his new health problems in an interview with <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/03/01/magazine/michael-j-fox-parkinsons-acting.html?module=inline" target="_blank"><em>The NY Times</em></a>.</p> <p>“I was having the recurring problem with my spinal cord,” said the 57-year-old.</p> <p>“I was told it was benign but if it stayed static I would have diminished feeling in my legs and difficulty moving. Then all of a sudden I started falling – a lot. It was getting ridiculous. I was trying to parse what was the Parkinson’s and what was the spinal thing.”</p> <p>Fox revealed that he was heading for work in August 2018 when he fell and fractured his arm, resulting in him getting 19 pins and a plate to repair the bones.</p> <p>While the <em>Back To The Future</em> star did not believe that these medical struggles happened “for a reason”, he said: “I do think the more unexpected something is, the more there is to learn from it. In my case, what was it that made me skip down the hallway to the kitchen thinking I was fine when I’d been in a wheelchair six months earlier?”</p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 281.25px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="/media/7824313/1michael-j-fox-embed.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/5ad3eab7f8354ec998a6d05fe128b6e9" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;" class="p1"><em>Michael J. Fox attends the 2018 Fan Expo Canada at Metro Toronto Convention Centre on August 31, 2018 in Toronto, Canada.</em></p> <p>Fox is currently working on a book about his health journey. “I realized that the understanding I’d reached with Parkinson’s was sincere but risked being glib,” he said.</p> <p>“I’d made peace with the disease but presumed others had that same relationship when they didn’t. Then when I started to deal with the effects from the spinal surgery, I realized: 'Wow, it can get a lot worse.'</p> <p>“My health issues last year brought me to places where I started to say, ‘Was it false hope I’d been selling? Is there a line beyond which there is no consolation?’ For me to get to that place is pretty dark.”</p> <p>Upon finding out his diagnosis at the age of 29, Fox took up numerous jobs in comedy films that turned out to be critical and commercial flops.</p> <p>“I was so scared,” he said. “I’m fine now but back then I wasn’t in the ‘I’m fine now.’ I was in the ‘I’m going to be bad.’ That thinking didn’t allow me to trust that I could make a decision without worrying about time restrictions or financial pressures – which were inflated in my head.”</p> <p>Fox said he only began to accept his disease in 1994 and went public with it in 1998. He went on to open the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for the disease, in 2000.</p>

President Donald Trump grilled in 60 Minutes interview: "I'm not a baby"

<p>US President Donald Trump has faced some tough questioning in an interview with the US’s <em>60 Minutes</em> program, which airs on the CBS network. Journalist Lesley Stahl grilled the President on everything from his close ties with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Russian interference with the 2016 election, and the cutthroat nature of Capitol Hill.</p> <p>In a sign of his tumultuous presidency, that has been filled with scandal and the resignation of several cabinet members and advisers, the commander-in-chief said he mistrusted some of his staff, and called Washington DC “a vicious, vicious place,” reports <em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/current-affairs/donald-trump-grilled-in-extensive-60-minutes-interview/news-story/445a1688bddf5722c68d738be2940df7" target="_blank">news.com.au</a></em>. “I don’t trust everybody in the White House, I’ll be honest with you,” said Mr Trump.</p> <p>“I’m not a baby. It’s a tough business. This is a vicious place. Washington DC is a vicious, vicious place. The attacks, the badmouthing, the speaking behind your back.</p> <p>“I have some people that I’m not thrilled with. And I have other people that I’m beyond thrilled with.”</p> <p>When questioning turned to President Trump’s close relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, he was unrepentant about his recent comment that the pair “fell in love”.</p> <p>“And then we fell in love, OK? No, really. He wrote me beautiful letters. And they’re great letters. We fell in love,” he said at a recent political rally.</p> <p>Stahl took Mr Trump to task on the statement, reminding him of the Supreme Leader of North Korea’s shocking and cruel acts.</p> <p>“I want to read you his resume,” said the journalist. “He presides over a cruel kingdom of repression. Gulags, starvation, reports that he had his half-brother assassinated, slave labour, executions — this is a guy you love?”</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr">Lesley Stahl on Kim Jong Un: "He presides over a cruel kingdom of repression, gulags, starvation…slave labor, public executions.

I mean, I’m not a baby. I know these things,” said the President. He put his recent remarks down to “a figure of speech”.</p> <p>“Look. Look. I like, I get along with him, OK?” he said.</p> <p>It seems the pair have gotten over the acrimony which involved threats of nuclear attacks and name calling.</p> <p>“I believe he likes me. I like him,” said Mr Trump. “We have a good relationship.”</p> <p>“I do trust him. I trust him. That doesn’t mean I can’t be proven wrong.”</p> <p>On Russian interference in the 2016 election, the President admitted that “they meddled. But I think China meddled too,” he said. “I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem.”</p> <p>He said that he had taken a “tough” stance with Russian President [check] Vladimir Putin over the matter, despite claims he’d avoided the accusations of political tampering.</p> <p>“I think I’m very tough with him (Putin) personally. I had a meeting with him. The two of us. It was a very tough meeting and it was a very good meeting.”</p> <p>Of the investigation into Russian interference in the election and possible collusion with US officials, Mr Trump said it was “very unfair".</p> <p>“There was no collusion of any kind,” he said. “There is no collusion.”</p> <p>In a rare moment of humility, President Trump admitted that he had made some missteps during his tenure so far, saying, “Everybody makes mistakes.”</p> <p>He reiterated his scathing attack on Washington DC and its hard-bitten politicians as another learning curve since winning the top job, comparing the environment to the tough world of Manhattan real estate, a world he knows all too well.</p> <p>“I always used to say the toughest people are Manhattan real estate guys. Now I say they’re babies,” said Mr Trump.</p> <p>“This is the most deceptive, vicious world. It is vicious. It’s full of lies, deceit and deception.”</p> <p>And again President Trump lashed out at media outlets that have questioned and criticised his presidency, calling them “dishonest".</p> <p>“I never knew how dishonest the media was. I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a sound bite,” he said.</p> <p>His antagonistic relationship with the media was apparent when he <span>arrogantly dismissed Stahl’s probing on the issue.</span></p> <p>“Lesley, it’s OK. I’m president and you’re not.”</p> <p>Did you learn anything new about the US President from his latest interview? Let us know in the comments below.</p> <p> </p>

Erik Thomson speaks out after 800 Words cancelled: "It didn't have to end"

<p>Soon to be reaching his 30th year of acting, Erik Thomson’s hugely successful show <em>800 Words</em> has not been approved for a fifth season.</p> <p>The show, which earned Thomson a win in the Best Actor category at the <em>Logies</em>, will end after the fourth season, set to air soon on TVNZ. </p> <p>Thomson’s character George Turner is a newspaper columnist, in the fictional New Zealand seaside town of Weld. And now, due to the show being shelved, season four will be the last time we see George Turner on our television screens.</p> <p>The 51-year-old actor finds the situation “disappointing” as he believes the show still had potential and a great viewership.</p> <p>“<em>800 Words</em> could have run for more seasons,” Thomson told <em><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebrity/tv/erik-thomson-800-words-cancelled-50696" target="_blank">TV WEEK</a></em>.</p> <p>“The plan was to jump ahead a year to see how things panned out, but that’s not going to happen, unfortunately.</p> <p>“Networks these days are interested in the shiny new ball, but not always in ways to keep that ball shiny.”</p> <p>Thomson believes reality television is partly to blame, with television networks strongly relying on reality shows. The actor says that scripted drama is not given the priority it deserves.</p> <p>“In many ways, reality shows have become like drama series,” he says. “They cast all these archetypes. There’s the villain, the smart arse and the underdog. I get it, but hopefully with a bit of luck the pendulum will swing back to more scripted drama that runs for longer than six-to-eight episodes.”</p> <p>But Thomson is still grateful for the opportunities he has been given.</p> <p>“I’ve been fortunate to be in shows people just have to be home for on a Tuesday night, whether it be <em>All Saints</em> or <em>Packed to the Rafters</em>,” he says. “I’ve been lucky.”</p> <p>He added, “This is my 28th year as a professional actor. I’m heading towards that three-zero years in the business. I keep pinching myself!”</p> <p>As for what the future holds, Thomson is looking into darker roles after shooting horror film <em>Awoken</em> in Adelaide, Australia with his fellow<em> 800 Words</em> co-star Benson Jack Anthony, and will soon be starring in Australian film<em> Storm Boy</em>.</p> <p>“The journeys I want to go on now aren’t as family-orientated,” he says when talking about his shift from the “nice guy” roles that he is known for playing. </p> <p>“I’m thinking darker drama or even some edgy, dark comedy projects. I’m working with some writers and there are possibilities floating around.”</p> <p>And one of those ideas may involve a reunion with Thomson’s <em>Packed to the Rafters</em> co-star Rebecca Gibney.</p> <p>“We’ve talked about it,” he says. “But Rebecca has just finished <em>Wanted</em> [the TV3 drama series] and everyone is in different parts of the world. I dare say it could happen.”</p> <p>Are you disappointed that <em>800 Words </em>won’t be returning after its fourth season? Let us know in the comments below.</p>

First look at The Crown’s new Queen

<p>Fans of the hit Netflix series rejoice! The official Twitter account for cult show <em>The Crown</em> has unveiled the first look at the new Queen Elizabeth.</p> <p>Replacing the show’s current leading lady, Claire Foy, in the Golden Globe-winning series, Olivia Colman has now stepped in to play the Queen for the next two seasons, which is currently in production.</p> <p>On Monday, Netflix gave the world a sneak peek of Colman in character as the new Queen Elizabeth on the set of <em>The Crown</em>, releasing a first look of the upcoming series on Twitter.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p dir="ltr">Patience. <a href="https://t.co/7F2f2aBON3">pic.twitter.com/7F2f2aBON3</a></p> — The Crown (@TheCrownNetflix) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheCrownNetflix/status/1018752145192050688?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">16 July 2018</a></blockquote> <p>In April, Colman expressed her excitement over her chance to play the role of Queen Elizabeth in a statement, which was also released on Twitter.</p> <p>"I'm so thrilled to be part of <em>The Crown</em>," the actress exclaimed. </p> <p>"I was utterly gripped watching it. A proper 'just one more' feeling. I think Claire Foy is an absolute genius. She's an incredible hard act to follow. I'm basically going to re-watch every episode and copy her."</p> <p>As the series progresses through the decades of the current monarchy, other cast members that are also set to be replaced are Matt Smith’s character as Prince Philip, who will be played by Tobias Menzies. Meanwhile, Helena Bonham Carter will take over the role of Princess Margaret, which was played by Vanessa Kirby.</p> <p>Bonham Carter told <em>Variety</em> at the <em>Ocean’s 8</em> premiere recently that she had already “started prepping” ahead of filming her new TV role.</p> <p>"It's exciting. We start in a few weeks, and I think we're all – we're completely terrified," Bonham Carter admitted.</p> <p>"I think also because the first two seasons were such a success, we have the onus of inheriting the responsibility of doing justice to all these genuinely famous people, and then on top of it, inheriting them from this previous generation of actors who've done such good jobs."</p> <p>Are you a fan of <em>The Crown</em>?

5 mistakes you missed in M*A*S*H

<p>M*A*S*H aired from 1972-83 and was set in the Korean War which occurred from 1950 to 1953. This series is one of the best pieces of pop culture that showcased the conflict.</p> <p>However, as much as the series tried to remain as periodically accurate as possible there were some errors that slipped through. Here are five mistakes that went over most fans’ heads.</p> <p><strong>1. <em>The Avengers</em> comic</strong></p> <p>In one episode, Radar has fallen asleep with a teddy bear whilst reading an issue of “The Avengers”. However, the comic was not created until 1963 – a decade after the war ended.</p> <p><strong>2. Movie night</strong></p> <p>When the characters gather to watch <em>My Darling Clementine</em> starring Henry Ford there is one mistake that snuck through. Although the movie choice is accurate as it was released in 1946, Radar stands up and does a John Wayne impression, saying: “I’m not gonna hit ya… I’m not gonna hit ya… Like hell I’m not!”. It’s a reference from <em>McLintock!</em> which was only released in 1963.</p> <p><strong>3. Spot-a-Card</strong></p> <p>The Officer’s Club at the 4077th has a lot of fun activities including the pinball game Spot-a-Card. However, this game was first created in August 1960.</p> <p><strong>4. The model helicopter</strong></p> <p>In Henry Blake’s office, there is a model helicopter hanging from the ceiling. This model Bell Huey UH-1 helicopter did not fly until 1956 though.</p> <p><strong>5. The Olympics pistol</strong></p> <p>When it is M*A*S*H Olympics, Potter uses a Smith &amp; Wesson Model 19 snub-nosed pistol to siren the race. This gun was not on the market until the late 1950s.</p>
