Brendan Fraser Breaks Down in Tears as ‘The Whale’ Gets Huge 6-Minute Standing Ovation in Venice

If the Venice Film Festival’s Sunday night “The Whale” global premiere is any indicator, Brendan Fraser’s return to Hollywood will be greeted with a lot of applause and many more tears. The actor was struck with emotion as the Darren Aronofsky drama’s titles rolled; Fraser played a 600-pound homosexual guy who was wheelchair-bound in the film.

In “The Whale,” performed by rising talent Sadie Sink from “Stranger Things,” Fraser portrays a guy who is severely obese and battles to maintain a relationship with his 17-year-old daughter. Ty Simpkins, Samantha Morton, and Hong Chau are also included in the supporting cast. Samuel D. Hunter’s play of the same name served as the inspiration for the film, which director Darren Aronofsky turned into a feature.

Fraser used a prosthetic outfit to play the main character in the movie, which added between 50 and 300 pounds depending on the moment.

To completely embody the part, the actor spent up to six hours every day in the makeup chair. Fraser described his prosthetic suit as “cumbersome, not exactly comfortable” in an interview conducted before the Venice premiere of the movie. He continued, “The torso piece was almost like a straight jacket with sleeves that went on, airbrushed by hand, to look identical as would human skin, right down to the hand-punched hair.”
