Oscar-nominated Tootsie actress Teri Garr has been battling multiple sclerosis for nearly 20 years. Garr dropped the bombshell on last night's Larry King Live, explaining that she kept quiet about the disease because she "didn't feel it was necessary to tell anybody... I really didn't think there was any reason to come out and say anything about it." Why speak out now? She says she wants to help spread the word about the "good medicine out there. If I can just help people to feel better." Specifically, Garr recommends a new drug called Rebif, which she has been taking since June, USA Today reports. She also serves as a paid spokesperson for the company behind the drug.
