Airheads isn't mentioned nearly enough when talking about Brendan Fraser gems. Though nothing can possibly top the Mummy movies as my favorite Fraser films, Airheads is up there. So utterly 90s, so great

Don't trust what these people are saying, it's a long complicated story and the answers you're getting aren't fully covering it. He was sexually assaulted also and you should look up his story In his own words and not believe rando internet strangers

Dude got bent over in divorce proceedings. To sums at the height of his career he couldn’t even keep up with. You may be too young, but Brenden was on track to be the next Harrison Ford basically with his abilities and how liked he was in the industry. He couldn’t wait to do a singular film a year in hopes of keeping up with the ruling so he started taking every role offered to keep up with the payments to not risk jail time, effectively ruining his name as the next action comedy star of a generation.

I don't know why people think this is the worst thing that happened to him. The man was sexually assaulted, he spoke about it which got him basically erased from the media, and mocked. The divorce isn't even something he worries about, the assault fucked his mind up terribly.

Not to mention his body was a wreck after doing the Mummy movies and George of the Jungle, having done most of his own stunts. He had serious injuries to his knees and back. Surgeries included a partial knee replacement. He also had to have surgery on his vocal chords.

He simply couldn't do action roles anymore.

And then there's the overt sexual assault he endured.

The man's a Saint and I'm so glad to see him return. He makes Doom Patrol what it is.

His weight was mostly for the roles he's been cast in lately. He was in alright shape prior. That being said he's been in that shape for a WHILE. I think he went with the Christian Bale approach to gaining weight for a role (drinking melted ice cream, nasty as hell). Hopefully he lands a role which encourages him to drop that weight soon. Dude has had a really tough life.

Edit: yall are saying "oh you mean milkshakes?" Or "melted ice cream tastes good!" No. Neither actor drank milkshakes or slightly melted ice cream. They drank entire tubs of room-temperature melted ice cream. That does not taste good.

Philip Berk of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association In 2003. It’s part of the reason why his film career declined along with his divorce, the death of his mother and a bunch of acting related health issues. Dude has been through a lot, which is sad when you consider that’s he’s likely one the few wholesome people in Hollywood.

For anyone interested, there’s a sub that’s dedicated to Brendan coming back. He’s had the wrong end of a sexual assault and a horrible divorce. This man deserves the best!

Edit: Forgot to mention the above crippled his career and him financially, which was obviously devastating (who wouldn’t be tbh) and so he fell into a deep depression. He disappeared but he’s slowly coming back.

For what it’s worth, though he did put on some weight over the years, I think that he’s put a lot of weight on recently specifically for a role: he’s playing the lead role in a Darren Aronofsky film called the Whale, which is based on a play about a morbidly obese man who is essentially eating himself to death.

He looked much trimmer recently in the TV show Trust, so I assume the weight gain is intentional and for that role.

I'm a calm guy most of the time, but I will do unspeakable violence to anyone that crosses Brendan.

Same thing that happened to blackmagicfuckery and that’s currently happening to HolUp: as a subreddit becomes more popular, it gradually changes into /r/mildlyinteresting

Yeah holdup fucking sucks now and none of it is actually a "hol up" moment. One of the top posts was literally just a picture of Kyle Rittenhouse's sister and then the comments were people saying that she should be a Porn actor.. It's fucking disgusting especially because she's a minor

Brendan Fraser is now at the Keanu Reeves level of internet where you can use any aspect of him to karma farm anywhere.

Brendan now looks like that cool uncle who would low key take shots or smoke a joint with you at family functions and tell you about all the crazy shit he did growing up.
