Can this be true? Michael J. Fox says that his kids have never seen Back to the Future.

The 54-year-old actor is best known for playing Marty McFly in the 1985 time-travelling adventure and though the film is still hugely popular today, his children Sam, 26, Aquinnah and Schuyler, 20, and 13-year-old Esme, who he has with wife Tracy Pollan, are not among its fans.

He said: "Ironically, for a time-traveling movie, there was a timelessness about it. Kids now like it. Though my kids haven't watched it. Or, if they have, they haven't told me."

Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, admitted he was considering giving up acting before he landed the role in Back to the Future.

Speaking at a fan convention in London at the weekend, he said: "I was thinking of working on the fish dock or joining the military like my dad. Then suddenly I found myself on a set with Steven Spielberg."

"I was very overwhelmed by the whole experience. The nadir and the peak of my career happened at the same time."

Filming didn't always run smoothly on the movie though, as the actor was repeatedly struck by the doors of the iconic gull-winged DeLorean car which his character drove through space and time.

He joked: "I wish I had a gag reel of every time I got whacked by that car door. The reel would be like 30 seconds of 'whack, whack!' " 

Back to the Future will be back in movie theaters on October 21 to mark the 30th anniversary of the movie.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing on October 20 a Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy on Blu-ray and DVD. The anniversary release includes all three movies plus a new bonus disc with more two hours of content.

Back to the Future 30th

Back to the Future: The Complete Animated Series will be released for the first time ever on DVD featuring all 26 episodes from the award-winning series and Back to the Future: The Complete Adventures will include all three movies, the complete animated series, a new bonus disc, a 64-page book and collectible light-up “Flux Capacitor” packaging.

Featuring more than two hours of content, the bonus disc will include all-new original shorts, documentaries, two episodes from the animated series and more. - See more at:
