While speaking with Entertainment Tonighton Saturday, Michael J. Fox revealed that Matthew Perry quietly helped out his foundation for Parkinson's research when it was just getting off the ground.
After ET's Cassie DiLaura shared with Fox that he was Perry's acting inspiration, the Back to the Future legend opened up about Perry's unspoken act.
Fox told DiLaura that when the Friends cast started making bank, the late actor donated a large sum of money to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
"I hope this isn’t indiscreet, but when they first made their big sale and were made millionaires for the rest of their lives, he wrote a big fat check to the foundation."
"We were really early on and trying to find our feet, and it was such a vote of confidence."
Fox shared that the gesture was not only extremely generous but also quite discreet.
"And it wasn’t accompanied by any self-aggrandizing or anything."
"He was just like, 'Take it and do your best.' I loved that."
