Henry Winkler, best known for his role as The Fonz in 1970s sitcom Happy Days, has revealed that Botox really helped his mum after she had a stroke. In a frank and open interview with the Daily Mail, the 66-year-old revealed that since having a stroke at 89, his mother developed upper limb spasticity, “which caused her arms and hands to become gnarled”.He said: “It’s painful and makes it difficult to get washed and dressed. But, two years ago, we discovered Botox can help with this — it has made a big difference to her life.” Winkler also talked about how difficult it was growing up with dyslexia, and how he is now ensuring his own three children, who all have the condition, understand that they can achieve “success in different ways”. When asked if he had ever had surgery, the loveable actor replied that he had only gone under the knife to have his tonsils out. See original story here:
