Michael J. Fox Faces the Crowd

In his first public appearance since revealing to PEOPLE Magazine shortly before Thanksgiving that he has Parkinson’s Disease, an upbeat Michael J. Fox hosted Monday night’s New York Magazine awards in Manhattan. “Now, you might have heard a few things about me in the last couple of weeks,” Fox, 37, told the crowd. “And all I can say is, ‘Boy, talk about being misquoted.’ I tell one reporter that I went to the park with my son, and the next thing I know, I’m on the cover of PEOPLE Magazine.”

  • Fox, in a more serious moment, said, “The way the city has reached out to me has been overwhelming.”
