Brendan Fraser, the American actor best known to the public for his roles in the films "George of the Jungle" and "The Mummy", appeared at this year's Tribeca Film Festival in New York at the premiere of Steven Soderbergh's crime drama "No Sudden Move", which he shot with famous colleagues Benicio Del Toro and Don Cheadle.
No one has not noticed that the famous actor today looks much different.
"He looks drastically different!", Many commented after seeing the "finely filled" 52-year-old Fraser.
And while some immediately maliciously concluded that the actor was neglected, it turned out that Brendan still "gained" weight because of his new role. According to the Daily Mail, in Darren Aronofsky's film "The Whale", he will play the lonely Charlie, a rather obese man weighing an incredible 600lbs, who is trying to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter.
The two parted ways after Charlie left the family because of his new gay partner, who later died. Fraser's character then began to overeat due to pain and guilt and was brought to a state of excessive obesity.
As for his current film "No Sudden Move", the plot of the thriller is set in Detroit in 1955 and follows a group of criminals who are hired to steal something they think is a simple document.
But at one point, their plan goes awry, and then their search for the person who hired them for the job begins.
It will be a great comeback for Brendan Fraser, who did not make big films at all for five years, and those he worked on recorded bad results at the box office.
For the actor, who was once at the top of Hollywood, growing up because of the role was obviously not problematic. And that's not surprising, because during his long career, Brendan always gladly accepted all challenges - so, for example, he always refused help in the form of stuntmen in dangerous, action stunts, which is why he ended up in expensive medical treatments, which cost him in the end, in addition to the costs of divorce and the payment of alimony for three children, they also led to bankruptcy.
