In 2021, acclaimed actor Christina Applegate, aged 52, revealed her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS), choosing to maintain a relatively low profile.

While nominated for an Emmy for her role in Netflix’s ‘Dead to Me,’ Applegate lost the award, hinting in a 2023 interview that it might be her last on-camera performance due to her MS diagnosis. This comes after facing other health issues, including breast cancer in 2008 and the removal of her ovarian and fallopian tubes in 2017.

Multiple sclerosis, as defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is a chronic disease affecting the central nervous system. Applegate’s candid response to the standing ovation, addressing her weight gain and the challenges posed by MS, highlights her sense of humor and resilience.

In a revealing interview with Vanity Fair, Applegate spoke openly about the daily struggles of living with MS, emphasizing the impact on seemingly routine activities. She also discussed her determination to resume filming ‘Dead to Me’ after a break for treatment, praising the support of the crew and showrunner Liz Feldman.

Applegate’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in 2022 marked her first public appearance since sharing her MS diagnosis. During the event, she went barefoot, citing discomfort with shoes, a common concern for those with MS. In her acceptance speech, she candidly addressed her condition, stating her limitations.
