American entertainment company A24 showed the first frame from the film “The Whale” directed by Darren Aronofsky. The film, which will premiere at the 79th Venice Film Festival, stars Brendan Fraser, Hong Chau and Sadie Sink. The first one surprised the fans: once a sex symbol, known for his roles in “George of the Jungle” and “The Mummy”, now a fat man, what else to look for.

In “The Whale,” Frazier plays Charlie, a middle-aged man whose weight is clearly off scale (600 pounds, or 272 kg). Charlie, who has left his family for a love affair, is desperate to connect with his teenage daughter. At some point, due to guilt, Fraser’s hero begins to overeat.

“It won’t be like anything you’ve seen before. That’s really all I can tell you… The wardrobe and suit were vast, one-piece, bulky. It’s certainly far from anything I’ve ever done, but not I will be modest … I know that this picture will make a lasting impression”

And here’s what Frazier looked like in the 90s when he was filming George of the Jungle. A toned body, powerful arms, a luxurious mane and a sex symbol face.

By the way, Brendan has shocked fans with his appearance before. So, a year ago, on the red carpet of the New York Tribeca Film Festival, he looked like a typical dad at a family celebration. And before that, he surprised me with a beer belly, showing not the best form. By the way, Fraser’s life cannot be called easy: the harassment of Philip Burke, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the Golden Globe, and a high-profile divorce from his wife did their job.
