In a new interview with People, the Back To The Future icon explained how he believes that Swift will be someone who will have a major impact in the next 50 years. “I think she’s going to be a really important person. I think she moves economies, she changes the way the world works, and that’s amazing,” the actor said.

He also noted her impact on what she has “said publicly about issues,” referring to the ‘Love Story’ singer urging her fans to take action at the forthcoming US elections causing them to drive record-breaking numbers to the Vote.org website, and her LGBTQIA+ allyship.

Elsewhere in the chat, Fox opened up about being a star in the 80s and how becoming famous back then was “harder” than it is now because you had to be tougher and have talent.

“There’s an expression I referred to when they gave me an honorary Academy Award — somebody said to me the day before, they were talking about getting this award and being famous and they said ‘You’re ‘80s famous’. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s cool.’ ‘80s famous. Right, we were different. We were tougher. We didn’t have social media, we didn’t have any of that crap. We were just famous. Left to our own resources. And it was an amazing time,” he told the outlet.

He continued: “We used to bust our ass, our acting muscles and watch other actors and sit around with other actors and talk about acting and talk about it. And now you’ve got people who just go like, ‘Who’s your sweater? What’s your sweater you’re wearing? And what’s that dance step?’ And you’re the most famous person in the world.”

In other news, Hole frontwoman Courtney Love recently slammed Taylor Swift, saying that she is “not important” and “not interesting as an artist”.

Speaking to The Standard in an interview recently, love shared “Taylor is not important. She might be a safe space for girls, and she’s probably the Madonna of now, but she’s not interesting as an artist.”
