Michael J. Fox Remembers River Phoenix’s Act of Kindness 31 Years Later: ‘He was so nice to me.’

Michael J. Fox has one recollection that has stayed with him over the years.

The retired actor talked about his surprise encounter with Southern hospitality thanks to the late River Phoenix. The incident in issue occurred 31 years ago, when Fox, 61, was filming Doc Hollywood in a little Florida town.

Fox recalls, River Phoenix and his brother Joaquin Phoenix had a home there, and River would take them out. He used to come and pick them up and take them to his house for a cookout. It’s amusing since that was a random gesture of kindness.

Fox feels the considerate gift was inspired by his own act of compassion for River on the set of Fox’s old show Family Ties. River, who died at the age of 23 in 1993 from a combination of drugs, appeared as a guest star in an earlier episode.

He did an episode of Family Ties when he was younger, probably before or just after Stand by Me, and he could tell, Fox adds. Fox was looking at this guy… he believed Tracy Pollan- his wife was on the show that episode, and he said, Look at this kid working. This kid is taking this 10 ways from Sunday and he is really coming at it. Fox implied that kids don’t act like this. He really realized how to be an actor, although he was having difficulties in this one scene.

After struggling with a specific scenario, a young River received a pep talk from Fox.

So Fox approached him and asked, ‘What’s the problem?’ River replied that he felt like a d—-. Fox remembers that it felt funny and felt like a d——. Fox then said welcome to the business. That’s all. That’s the highest degree of achievement one’ll get: feeling like a d—-. It’s ridiculous. It’s a crazy thing to do for a living.

Fox went on, for a living, they appear to be other individuals. They use things they shouldn’t use, eat things they shouldn’t eat, and stand in a position since the light is better there. It’s all ridiculous, but if he stays with it, he can find a way to tell a narrative that others can’t.

Finally, Fox claims that the late actor was “outstanding” at the moment.

Fox suppose that’s why, when River became a tremendous star, he was always so polite to him, Fox continues.

Fox, who has lived with Parkinson’s disease for several decades and founded The Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000, values acts of generosity. Since then, the organization has raised more than $1.5 billion for Parkinson’s research and treatment.

The motivation behind all they did was genuine. They are aware of the agenda. Fox simply desires to cure Parkinson’s disease. All they desire is to get it done.
