Frankie Muniz is speaking out about rumors of his memory loss.

The 36-year-old actor appeared on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast December 16, which he said was ‘the first time that [he’s] actually ever gotten to clarify’ the issue in a public forum after he was reported to have dealt with mini-strokes in 2012 and 2013.

The Malcolm in the Middle star said there were misconceptions about his health circulating, as his official diagnosis was migraines auras after seeing a slew of doctors.

‘If you search my name, all it talks about is how like I have no memory or I’m dying of strokes and all this kind of stuff,’ he said. ‘You search my name [and] it’s basically, “Frankie is dying.”‘

The New Jersey-born star pointed at a history of concussions he’s had over the years playing sports and racing.

‘I’ve thought about it a lot like over my years of like, you know, why do I have a bad memory?’ he said. ‘You know what I mean? The only logical thing I can say is, yeah, I’ve had nine concussions.’

Muniz said he didn’t ‘want to blame the concussions or blame anything else,’ but pointed to the fact that he’s had a jam-packed life and doesn’t remember every detail.

‘I just think it’s the fact that I did so f***ing much in that time frame that of course I can’t remember all of it,’ Muniz said.

Muniz referenced his 2017 run on Dancing with the Stars, recalling how he had troubles about remembering life events that had occurred in the early 2000s during the ABC show’s week focused on the celebrity’s most memorable year.

‘To be honest, like, I love Dancing With the Stars, and I don’t want to say anything that will make them hate me, but they kind of tell you what your most memorable year is going to be,’ he said of the show’s format. ‘They were like, “It’s 2001 because it’s when you were nominated for an Emmy and the Golden Globes” and all that kind of stuff.’

He continued: ‘And I go, “I don’t remember what I felt then. I don’t, you know? It was me kind of blowing off the fact that I can’t say, “That’s my favorite year” because I can’t tell you what happened in 2001 … I had to say, like, “I don’t really remember.” But I wasn’t saying I don’t remember anything.’

Muniz said the truth is he doesn’t ‘remember much’ of his time on Malcolm in the Middle.

‘It almost feels like it wasn’t me,’ he said. ‘It makes me a little sad. Things pop back into my mind I should have remembered. I’ve gotten to do anything that I really wanted to do. But the truth is, I don’t really remember much of that.’

He said that he’s watched the show in recent years and enjoyed it as a fan.
