Fox has revealed how the world premiere of "Back to the Future" was turned into a "nightmare" thanks to Princess Diana. During an interview on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the 59-year-old actor said he was told the Royal Family would be attending the screening, but he was shocked on the night to be seated right next to the Princess of Wales. He said: "She was sitting next to me. The lights go down and the movie starts and I realize I am one fake yawn and an arm stretch away from being on a date with her, which is hilarious." But Fox — who famously portrayed the role of Marty McFly — said the experience of sitting next to the princess quickly became very uncomfortable. "The movie started and I had to go pee," he said. "So for the rest of the movie, I'm sitting there like dying. I can't say anything to her and I can't walk away from her because I can't turn my back on her." He added: "So it was just agony. What could have been the greatest night of my life was a nightmare. A pee-holding nightmare." —The Tonight Show (@FallonTonight) November 19, 2020 When asked by Jimmy Fallon whether the Princess seemed to enjoy the film, Fox replied: "She seemed to laugh a couple of times.
