The audience remembered Brendan Fraser for his role in “The Mummy”. The film brought him an Oscar nomination and enormous popularity. But ten years ago, the actor seemed to disappear, writes the portal “About beauty: DIY and art.”

All the troubles began with problems in my personal life. In 2007, the actor divorced his wife, an actress. Afton Smith. Three sons remained with their mother. The artist did not survive the divorce well, and in addition, problems with money began. The court ordered the artist to annually pay his former passion alimony in the amount of $900 thousand. Amid stress, depression and health problems, the tall and athletic man has changed greatly in appearance. Hollywood turned its back on him: he was no longer invited to big movies or premieres, only occasionally invited to small roles in TV series.

Internet users ridiculed Fraser’s changed figure, made memes from his photos and used him as a “demotivator” for those who are too lazy to go to the gym. As a result, the actor recovered so much over the course of several years that he no longer looked like himself.

But the artist managed to return to the media after the 79th Venice Film Festival in 2022. Darren Aronofsky’s drama “The Whale” was shown there for the first time. This is a film about a man weighing 272 kilograms, who once upon a time abandoned his daughter, and is now trying to improve his relationship. The audience liked the movie so much that they applauded Fraser for six minutes straight. For his role in the film, the artist received an Oscar in the Best Actor category, as well as a Golden Globe nomination.
