Michael J. Fox recently discussed in his new documentary "Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie," what exactly his wife, Tracy Pollan, said to him that made him fall in love with her decades ago. The pair met on set of "Family Ties" when Pollan was cast as Fox's love interest. "One day, we broke for lunch. After lunch, we picked up where we left off. The moment she said her first line, I detected a hint of garlic and sensed an opportunity to have a little fun at her expense. 'Whoa, a little scampi for lunch, babe?'" Fox recalled. "At first she said nothing. Her expression didn't even change. But looking me dead in the eyes she said slowly, 'That was mean, and rude, and you're a complete and total f---ing a--hole.'"

The "Back to the Future" actor admitted that in the midst of his fame, he was not used to being spoken to like that. "Nobody talked to me that way. This woman was completely unintimidated by whoever I thought I was. A pig is a pig no matter how many hit movies he's just had," Fox admitted. Although Pollan was joking, Fox admired how she did not let him get to her. "I was not the butt of any jokes. She just poked through that, like, you're a scared little kid and I'll just call you out. In that moment I fell in love with her." Fox said that as time went on, the pair fell more and more in love. They have now been married for 34 years and share four children together. Fox gushed saying, "Once we got together, I was the most in love person. I still am."
