For his role in Darren Aronofsky’s drama The Whale, he made this change. The first shot of the set was posted on film company A24’s Twitter microblog.
The film is included in the official program of the 79th Venice International Film Festival, which runs from August 31 to September 10.
In the first shots of the shooting, only the head of the actor is visible, but it is already clear that he has completely reincarnated as a fat main character.
Keith tells the story of a man named Charlie who, due to the loss of his girlfriend and severe overeating, gained 600 pounds. The main character tries to mend the relationship with his 17-year-old daughter, Ellie, who is angry with her father for letting the family down.
“There must be something we haven’t seen yet. That’s all I can say. Of course, it’s far from what I’ve done before, but I don’t want to be modest. I think you will be impressed,” he says.
It should be remembered that Brendan Fraser has gained a lot of weight in recent years due to injuries and personal problems on the set of the movie “The Mummy”.
However, that wasn’t always the case and fans remember well how his excellent form was the envy of many in his youth.
In his youth, the actor had an athletic figure.
Brendan Fraser was overweight and in danger of losing his career.
Recall that there was a period in the life of the actor when there was little work. He throws himself headlong into all the projects and suffers serious injuries on the set of the third part of The Mummy: broken rib, ruptured intervertebral disc, knee and vocal cord injuries. For several years, until 2015, Brendan was often in the hospital to improve his health. As already mentioned, this is one of the reasons for the actor’s spectacular weight gain.
