Brendan Fraser’s latest motion picture ‘The Whale’ had its premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, and his anticipated comeback did not disappoint fans.
Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the movie stars Fraser as he leaves his family behind for a new lover, but starts to eat without measure when his lover passes away.
At 600lb (272kgs), he tries to reconnect with his teen daughter. The part required Fraser to wear a fat suit that created a surprisingly realistic look.
According to Variety, the standing ovation for the actor and crew lasted for a whopping 6 minutes. In the video, Fraser can be seen being overwhelmed with emotion, and even shedding tears of joy and appreciation.
Does anybody else get a little bit overly emotional to see happy things happen for Brendan Fraser? Or is that just me? 💕 pic.twitter.com/0PBsXFU9AC

A rumor has also spread that Fraser’s new role might even earn him an Oscar nomination.
Speaking about his latest role, Fraser previously said:
“It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before.”
“That’s really all I can tell you,” he added.
“The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome. 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.”

To the disappointment of fans, Fraser had disappeared from the big screen for years, but thankfully, he is now back sharper than ever.
Regarding the personal issues that put his career on hold, he said:
“I changed houses; I went through a divorce. Some kids were born. I mean, they were born, but they’re growing up. I was going through things that mould and shape you in ways that you’re not ready for until you go through them,” Fraser told GQ.
