BRENDAN Fraser’s latest movie role required him to pack on some major pounds.
Now fans say the former heartthrob is practically unrecognizable.
The 53-year-old’s new movie is titled The Whale, and tasked the star with undergoing a total body makeover to play the 600-lb. lead.
The Darren Aronofsky-directed drama sees Brendan playing a reclusive writing instructor who is struggling to reconnect with his teenage daughter.
It’s set to debut at the 2022 Venice Film Festival later this year.
Fraser addressed the elephant in the room in an interview with Unilad last year.
“The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome,” he said at the time. “This is certainly far removed from anything I’ve ever done but not to be coy … I do know it’s going to make a lasting impression.”
