This post is going to be called Retro Hottie,I’m making it a regular cos when I watch reruns of old movies, I often think if only I was born then man, this guy is gorgeous! I mean the aged also deserve to dwell in their youthful past, or allow me to do the needful.
Even the shallow shall have heart. That’s true, Oprah congrats you have changed me.It’s easy to now sound all martyrly and say I love Micheal J Fox simply because he is a wonderful human being, but sadly that is so not true! I think he was probably one of my earliest crushes and watching a rerun of Teen Wolf, the original made me realize why.You must realize that growing up in India,we initially anyways for my formative years lived in a bubble which was American in the 1970s - 80s even though it was clearly we were in the nineties.So it was completely normal for me to even be 13 and still be watching reruns of Family Ties after all our entire nation probably thinks Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are still 10, yes we still have reruns of Full House and people watch it! And so thanks to the delay in technology began my torrid crush affair with Micheal J fox, I guess that explains why I have a thing for red heads ,Canadians,nice guys and short guys.Wow I think I officially just became a shrink.Michael has faced his own demons when in 2000 he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and he took it like a dude, “People always ask me if I say to myself ‘Why Me?’ and I tell them, 'Why not me?”, and along with his gorgeous wife Tracy Polan has raised funds and awareness about the disease, such an inspiration, he is truly one nice guy.
So thus began my long love story with the gorgeous Mr.Fox,way back with the TV movie Poison Ivy, a coming of age story of kids in a camp which is guarded by dangerous poison ivy all the boys want a roll in because the camp nurse is a hottie. Mickey plays camp instructor, and as someone who detests the idea of not having a tub while vacationing even though camp ethics were lost on me, lets just say whenever I am bullied into it I look for the hottest instructor! Then camp ofcourse the role that made him a super start the Back to the Future enterprise, suddenly geeky plaid shirt wearing boys were cute.(I repeat I was still just 11 when I saw this movie maybe older, we got stuff really late in India!)He went on to court a really well rounded career with hits like Teen Wolf, Life with Mickey, The Secret of my success,The Frighteners,Greedy, Mars Attacks. He has also voiced alot of animated movies like Homeward Bound, Stuart Little,Atlantis. And has had a love affair with the silver screen with Family Ties, Spin city, Scrubs,Boston Legal.. phew I am tired, so chances you have definitely heard and seen him at some point of time in your lives, and in his immortal words, Pain is temporary but film is forever.
