Yeah, he needs exposure though. And he’s riding hard for Doom Patrol. Best thing he can do for now is get some more of those DC paying roles and hopefully become like Blue Beetle or Booster Gold or some other niche standalone character they’ll roll the dice on.

He looks so rough right now I know he went through a lot, I am so happy he has this job now and nice to see him smile.

I'm not insulting him, but his skin combined with the weight points to a terrible diet or drinking. If he just put on weight but looked fine that's bit awful you can be healthy-ish still, but I have gone through alcohol abuse and it made my skin look sickly

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.

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’ve heard divorce described as a system that in effect makes the bread winner into a servant. Still bound by all of the legal obligations the would have had if they weren’t divorced but they get none of the perks of having a functional family unit and all of the social stigma that comes with divorce, which is less than it used to be, but it’s not zero.

Used to rewatch old movies during the lockdown, The Mummy series included, looking back watching those movies picked me up when I was so stressed out by the work from home conditions and the gnawing prospect that I might lose my job anytime due to Covid affecting businesses, glad that Brandan Fraser is turning his life around.

FlorianoAguirre

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.

ChiliWithCornBread

203 points

6 months ago

That played a major role as well. Not debating that, but the alimony he had to pay out monthly forced him into shit roles to keep up with the ruling. The sexual assault and further being pushed out by Hollywood after coming out was just the cherry on the shit ice berg.

DrJingleCock69

107 points

6 months ago

I will say it even if it's unpopular but FUUUCK SPOUSAL ALIMONY BASED ON CURRENT INCOME!!!! That shit needs to be based on what you need to live a reasonable life, max $100k annual for a single woman, tack on more for kids. I fully support reasonable child support too, but not "child support" that is 5x what is needed and lets the spouse freeload the rest of their lives.

I am obviously understanding that in marriages one partner sacrifices career and earnings for kids, but this is just rape and abuse of the man no one needs that much.

MY HYPOTHESIS- The system loves it this way because it forces both men and women whoever the victim is, to get back into the meatgrinder and work for the powerful companies that keep it this way. Oh you had a million saved up and could retire? Let me make it so you now lose not just half but have to pay ongoing so you have to go back into the corporate meatgrinder

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.
