”I have a slightly different, weird, strange story about that because my father really hasn’t ever said he has Parkinson’s disease.
”He comes from a pretty prideful generation, and he doesn’t really talk about it too much. But, he’s maybe said it once or twice out loud
”It kind of galvanized everybody else, to sort of seek resources. And for us, it’s in a strange way, it’s really kind of brought us together.”Reynolds, himself had been involved with actor’s Michael J. Fox’s foundation in 2008
and is now on the board of directors and took part in a joint interview with the founder ahead of the Fox foundation’s annual gala in New York.
