- Brendan Fraser now weighs over 600 pounds
- He's put on so much weight for a new movie role
- The movie is called The Whale
Brendan Fraser (53) has made it back to the big screen. The actor was very popular, especially in the nineties and early 2000s. Some of his best-known films include George Of The Jungle, Blast From The Past, and The Mummy films.
The main features of the star at the time were full hair and a well-trained body. Now, we would have almost not recognized him. He presents himself with a body weight of over 270 kilograms.
All this for his new film role. It is directed by none other than Darren Aronofsky, who is responsible for the films Mother with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem and Black Swan with Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
Brendan Fraser's new film The Whale
Brendan Fraser's new film is called The Whale. It follows an obese father who seeks to be closer to his 17-year-old daughter (Sadie Sink) after leaving his family for a man. Nothing more is known about the film yet. The film celebrates its world premiere in Venice in September 2022, at the 79th International Film Festival.
The actor told Unilad: "It's gonna be like something you haven't seen before. "It will be something you have never seen before. That’s really all I can tell you…"
Brendan Fraser has struggled with the aftermath of a sexual assault, a failed marriage, and both physical and mental health issues in recent years. The role of "Charlie" in The Whale is his first leading role in ten years.
