The sixty one yr old actor mentioned he was visiting Fox on set someplace in Kanchanaburi adding that they went into the jungle where Fox handed somebody “like hundreds of baht, which most likely amounted to about US$16.”
The two actors have been then taken to a venue to watch a fight between a cobra and a mongoose.
“I couldn’t imagine it. I look in there and Mike is sitting next to this kid with dozens of cobras throughout them ready to strike, no jest. And the kid was toying with these cobras.
Comprehensive taunted a bunch of those cobras and then he discovered the orneriest cobra, grabbed it by the neck, threw it in a cage with mongoose, the place I saw the craziest battle I’ve ever seen between any animals, aside from studio executives.
“The mongoose won, they took the snake, tied it by its tail, ran the blood out, half-filled 4 glasses with cobra blood and half with Thai whiskey.
“Drinking the cobra blood is identified as ‘becoming brother to the snake.”‘
Both actors looked at one another after which downed the potent cocktail.
Moments later Fox vomited the bloody drink.
“Mike never may hold his cobra blood. Mike and I drink a lot of things together and he can hold his personal, what can I say, he’s Canadian.”
The Texas-born actor’s story introduced down the home.

Harrelson hailed Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991, for turning “a chilling analysis into a courageous mission.”

“He never requested for the position of Parkinson’s advocate, but it is his finest performance. Michael J Fox sets the last word example of tips on how to struggle and how to live.”
