Brendan Fraser won the Oscar, last night in Los Angeles, and there were tears of joy and rebirth. The Graal was touched with his award for his role in the movie The Whale, directed by Darren Aronofski.

"If, like Charlie, who I play in this film, you're somehow struggling with obesity or feeling like you're in a dark sea, I want you to know that you can too. have the strength to get up and go towards the light. Good things will happen to you" said the actor in his winning speech. We could see a part of him in that speech.

"I started in this business over 30 years ago and things weren't always easy, but I got something that I didn't appreciate back then, until I don't have it anymore. I want to thank you for this recognition, because I couldn't have done it without the rest of the team. It's like I'm on an expedition to the bottom of the ocean and the air only reaches me through a small tube that watches over this important part of my life," continued the actor.

With this movie and now the Oscar, the actor buried his past, his troubles. In the 90s he was the super charming, good looking actor playing the hot roles. But a terrible accident shortened his career that was on the peak with movies like George of the Jungle or The Mummy. After several stunts, knee surgeries, back injuries, the actor's body couldn't handle anymore. With this, the mental shape started to shake, also.

Brendon Fraser's sexual aggression

He talks in an interview for GQ magazine about his sexual aggression coming from the part of Philip Berk, one of the presidents of Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

At a dinner party, the actor speaks about the aggression: "his left hand went around and grabbed my buttock, and one of his fingers touched my perineum. And he started moving it ...  I felt sick, like a little child, like I had a lump in my throat. I thought I was going to cry, [...] as if someone had thrown invisible paint on me."

Philip Berk never admitted the story. Thanks to the #metoo movement in 2017, the actor started to raise his eyes and make his voice heard again.

What happened to Brendan Fraser?

The actor had a serious mental breakdown but now just like the phoenix, he returned from ashes, ready to sparkle on the Hollywood carpet. With his role in the movie The Whale, he had the chance to confront his demons and unleash them. He embodies a middle-aged man who suffers from a lost love and plunges into eating. The actor had to wear 272 kg prosthesis for this role.
