Actor: Michael J. Fox on his illness: "It's getting harder and harder"

US actor Michael J. Fox says he is increasingly struggling with his Parkinson's disease. "It's getting harder, every day it's getting harder," said the 61-year-old from "Bild am Sonntag". "I probably won't be 80." His family is worried if he falls, for example. "But other than that, I don't get any sympathy," said the actor, who became known primarily through the film series "Back to the Future" in the 1980s.

The disease was diagnosed in 1991 in then 29-year-old Fox. Apple TV has now produced a documentary titled "Still" about the life of Michael J. Fox. He said: "When I saw the film myself, it was shocking to me. My face seems so blank and expressionless at times." He is not always aware of what he looks like. "Not that it bothers me, but it's intense when you see it on screen."
