Michael J Fox to Taylor Swift: 'Just back off'

Sam Fox and Francesca Eastwood, children of Michael J. Fox and Clint Eastwood.

Tina Fey joked about Taylor Swift staying away from Michael J. Fox's son, Sam, at the Golden Globes, telling Swift who was in the audience to "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son" as the younger Sam Fox presented an award, but it seems that dad echoes the same belief. 

"No. No … Just back off," he told New York magazine after the idea of a Sam-and-Taylor love connection was proposed. "I don’t keep up with it all. But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right?"

"What a way to build a career," said Fox.

When asked how he would react if Sam brought her over to meet the family he said: "I wouldn’t even know who she was."

But it'd probably dawn on him after the breakup song hit the radio. "Yeah, exactly," he said. "'Sam, You Piece of Sh*t.' Oh … that was the girl you brought home!"

UPDATE: Michael J. Fox has since apologised to Taylor Swift – the singer tweeted "we are good" and thanked her fans for their support.
