MICHAEL J FOX proves he is still a star act, after giving up his first class seat to an 80-year-old lady.
The former SPIN CITY actor was seated in the exclusive section on a flight from L. A. to New York City when an elderly woman came up from second class to use the toilet because the line was shorter.
The woman had a hard time standing, so Michael got up and insisted she sit down while she waited. The lady innocently remarked that she and her husband were travelling to New York to celebrate her 80th birthday, and this was the first time she'd ever sat in first class.
That was all the big-hearted star needed to hear. Not only did the Parkinson's-stricken actor and the pal he was with switch seats with the couple, he arranged for them to fly first class on their return trip! (KMW/STA/ES)
