The 54-year-old is currently making headlines for winning an Oscar for the movie The Whale.

Brendan Fraser’s transformation in his recent film The Whale
Brendan Fraser is currently making headlines for his recent Oscar-winning movie, The Whale. The actor is seen playing the role of an obese guy. To be more precise about Fraser’s character, he wore the 600-pound prosthetic suit and did not actually gain weight for the movie. The actor pulled off the role very neatly, but things are not as easy as they seem to be. The actor described his experience wearing the prosthetic suit; he claimed it was uncomfortable. The suit made things so difficult for Fraser that he had to take assistance from others to stand up and sit down. It took five to six hours for Fraser to get the Charlie look. In a conversation with Vanity Fair, the Inkheart actor shared,
“I looked at other body suits that had been used in comedies over the years, usually for a one-note joke. Whether intended or not, the joke is that it defies gravity. This was not that.”
