with photosChristina Applegate (51) appeared on the red carpet with a special cane at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles this week. It will probably be the last awards show she will attend as an actress, according to her, because she suffers from multiple sclerosis.

The American, known, among other things, for Married with children, held hands with his daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble (12) at the professional awards ceremony. Applegate wore a black velvet tuxedo dress paired with a black cane. There were stickers on it that said ‘EM FU‘, in other words ‘Fuck off, MS‘, a middle finger to his illness. The strong statement stole the show among all the splendor, he writes Fashion.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that causes inflammation in the central nervous system. As a result, the brain is unable to perform some functions correctly, leading to blindness, extreme fatigue, and memory problems, for example.

Applegate named Best Actress in a Comedy Program for her role in the Netflix series dead to me. She didn’t win it (Jean Smart won the award for tricks), but it was a special night all the same. “It’s probably my last awards show as an actress, so it’s pretty what a thing” he said beforehand to the Los Angeles Times.

“I can’t imagine it right now: getting up at 05:00 and then being on set for 12 to 14 hours. I don’t have that in me right now,” said Applegate, who wants to keep working. For example, as a producer, or for ‘a shit do dubbing work to earn some money so my daughter can eat and we have a house.’ But she also likes to be at home, in bed, where watching reality shows feels like “meditation.”

Definitely finished the series.

During the filming of the third and final season of dead to me Christina experienced tremors and leg pain. When it became clear that she had MS, the recordings stopped for several months. She insisted on coming back to finish the show, which she did. Applegate has never worked so hard.

“I was a mess every day, but mostly in my trailer when I was alone,” she said. “But she sometimes she would also break down on the set and say: ‘I can’t do it, we have to take a break, I need half an hour.’ Everyone was so sweet that it was okay.”

Christina will not be deterred and the message on her cane fits with that. OK?” she said. The New York Times on the disease “I will never accept this. I’m furious.”
