On Wednesday evening episode of Today’s show with Jimmy Fallon, a mysterious Michael J. Fox gave something pretty important about that Back to the Future Premiere. The actor best known for his role as Marty McFly Back to the Future, revealed that at the world premiere in 1985, he sat next to none other than royal family, Princess Diana herself.
Talking to Fallon about the experience, he revealed, “She was sitting next to me. The lights go out and the movie starts and I realize that I’m a fake yawn and put my arm out to meet her, which is hilarious . ” He added, “The movie started, and besides, I had to pee. For the rest of the movie, I’ll sit and die. I can’t tell her and I can’t walk away because I can’t turn my back on her . “
Fox mentioned that he had no idea he would be sitting next to Princess Diana until she actually came and sat next to him. Unfortunately, he added, “It was just agony. What could have been the greatest night of my life was a nightmare. A peeing nightmare.” We cannot even imagine that.
When asked about Diana’s thoughts on the film, he said to Fallon, “She seemed to laugh a few times. She wasn’t exuberant.” So it could be worse, right?
