Christina Applegate Says This Will Likely Be Her “Last Acting Awards”

Christina Applegate has revealed that the upcoming Screen Actors Guild awards could mark an incredibly poignant milestone in her career, due to her recent diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

“This is probably my last award show as an actor, so that’s a big deal,” the actor said in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, published Tuesday.

Applegate is up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series at the ceremony, marking her sixth nomination.

The actress, who recently wrapped the final season of her Netflix hit, ‘Dead To Me,’ told the outlet that she couldn’t “imagine getting up at 5 a.m. and spending 12-2 p.m. on a tray; I don’t have that in me right now.”

Applegate confessed that she even had trouble watching the show’s final season, as she “doesn’t like to see me in trouble.”

“Also, I gained 40 pounds from inactivity and medication, and I didn’t look and feel like myself,” the actor said.

“At some point I was able to distance myself from my own ego and realize what beautiful television this was. All the scenes I wasn’t in were so much fun to watch and experience for the very first times,” she added.

As for what the future holds next, the ‘Anchorman’ star said she’s ‘doing a ton of voice-overs to make money to make sure my daughter is fed and we’re housed “.

Applegate publicly disclosed his multiple sclerosis diagnosis in August 2021.

This disease, which affects the brain and spinal cord, can include symptoms such as leg and body weakness, fatigue, slurred speech, loss of vision and dizziness.
