Actress Meg Ryan recently made a rare public appearance in support of her friend Michael J. Fox ahead of the release of his new documentary about his battle with Parkinson’s disease
Ryan, who has been out of the public eye for the past six months, has previously taken a step back from the limelight
At the screening of STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie, the pair were snapped together looking happy, though fans were quick to comment on Ryan’s appearance.
Despite her previous denials, some fans speculated that Ryan may have undergone plastic surgery. The Sleepless in Seattle star, who made her on-screen debut in Rich and Famous in 1981, displayed an incredibly smooth complexion, leading some to question whether she had dabbled in plastic surgery. Indeed, some shared less than flattering opinions over Meg’s new look online, reigniting a debate that the actress herself has weighed in on in the past.
However, it’s important to remember that Meg Ryan is entitled to her privacy and personal decisions regarding her appearance. It’s not our place to judge her appearance, and we should respect her decision to take a step back from the public eye in recent years. In a 2015 interview with Porter Magazine, Ryan addressed rumors regarding plastic surgery and stated that she pays little attention to those offering negative opinions about her appearance.
Turning out for the aforementioned screening held at the Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center, New York, the actress seemed to be in good spirits as she posed for pictures with the likes of Billy Murray and Elvis Costello on Michael J. Fox’s big night. Fox, who was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the young age of 29, is releasing a new documentary focusing on his life during the three decades since his diagnosis.
In a tear-jerking recent interview, Fox candidly reflected on his own mortality, saying that his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s was “getting tougher.” Despite initially endeavoring to hide his condition, he’s since become a leading figure in the fight for heightened awareness and research. Fox added that he recently had spinal surgery after a tumor was found on his spine. While it was benign, it affected his ability to walk, and he was injured after a fall.
“You don’t die from Parkinson’s. You die with Parkinson’s. I’ve been thinking about the mortality of it. … I’m not gonna be 80. I’m not gonna be 80,” Fox said.
Let us send love and support to Fox during this difficult time.
In conclusion, Meg Ryan’s appearance at the screening of Michael J. Fox’s documentary was a rare public appearance for the actress, who has previously taken a step back from the limelight. While some fans speculated about her appearance, it’s important to respect her privacy and personal decisions regarding her appearance. Meanwhile, Michael J. Fox’s battle with Parkinson’s disease continues to be a source of inspiration for many, as he continues to raise awareness and research about the disease.
