Brendan Fraser was the ultimate Hollywood heartthrob during the late 90s.
However, the actor has said he’s not interested in “looking the way he did” in the early stages of his career.
Fraser, 54, who has received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his comeback role in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale, recalled the early days of his career during a new interview.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Fraser said, “It made sense that I had to look like that if all they were giving me to put on was a butt flap.”
Fraser played the iconic Rick O’Connell in The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001), and in 1997 family film George of the Jungle.
He added, “I mean, I’m older now; I don’t look the way I did in those days, and I don’t necessarily want to.”
The Bedazzled star continued, “But I’ve made peace with who I am now. And I’m glad that the work I can do is based in an emotional reality that’s not my own life, but is one that I can strongly identify with.”
In The Whale, Fraser was required to wear prosthetics weighing 21 stone, which received some criticism from viewers of the film following its release in the US.
