The actor Brendan Fraser showed up at a screening of his most recent movie, The Whale, with his two sons as a surprise. The internet is going crazy over the photo.
With his return to acting in the scary psychological drama, the 53-year-old actor made headlines. The movie is about an overweight and shy English teacher who tries to get back in touch with his daughter. Sadie Sink, who played Max in Stranger Things, plays the daughter.
When the film was shown at the Venice Film Festival, it got a six-minute standing ovation, which made Fraser cry and get emotional. His reaction went viral, and fans said that the applause was well-earned. The film was then shown a month later at the London Film Festival, where it got a standing ovation that lasted five minutes. This made him feel just as sad as before.
After accusing Philip Berk, a former president and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes for the Golden Globes, of sexual assault in 2018, the actor from The Mummy took a break from acting and then showed up in the new movie after telling GQ about the accusations.
Fraser said that Berk had touched him in an inappropriate way when they were both at a luncheon in Beverly Hills in 2003. He told the outlet that the upsetting event “made [him] retreat,” and left him feeling like “something had been taken away from me.”
His left hand reaches around, grabs my a** cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around,
I felt ill. I felt like a little kid. I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry.
Fraser thought that his accusations had gotten him kicked out of Hollywood. He told GQ that “the silence was deafening” and that he rarely got invited back to the Golden Globes after 2003. Fraser’s claims were made known to the public in 2003.
Since The Whale came out in theaters and got mostly good reviews, Fraser has said that he won’t go to the Golden Globes if the movie is nominated for any awards because he’s not a “hypocrite.” In other words, the movie has been praised by a lot of people.
It’s because I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,
the actor said of the organization that hosts the Golden Globes.
And my mother didn’t raise a hypocrite. You can call me a lot of things, but not that.
Fraser has worked hard to get the word out about The Whale. His two sons, Holden and Leland, even came with him to a screening of the movie this week. Even though he has decided not to attend the Golden Globes in 2023, Fraser has promised to promote the movie. And people on the internet were dying of thirst…
Okay, but… Brendan Fraser’s sons,

A third person, who seemed surprised to find out that the actor from “George of the Jungle” had sons, wrote:
