He shared memory with his mom during the interview. When Michael was in his early twenties in the 1980s, his mother objected to him filming Back to the Future at night and Family Ties during the day. Michael, however, disregarded her counsel and went on to accept both roles, which he now acknowledges left him feeling tired.
He told the people at Comic-Con that when he was 23 years old, he called his mom in Canada and said, “They want me to do this Steven Spielberg movie, but I have to do Family Ties in the daytime.” And she said, ‘You’ll be too tired,’” the Canadian-American recalled.
Michael allegedly replied to his mother: “I live for this kind of tired. It’ll be okay.” He said: “To this day — well, till two weeks ago — my mother thought it was a really bad idea for me to do Back to the Future. “She loved the movie, but she was right, I got tired.
