Hollywood’s most recognizable names.Based on the 1960s animated series of the same name, the flick turned actors such as Brendan Fraser, Leslie Mann, and Thomas Haden Church into overnight superstars.This week, after shunning the spotlight following personal struggles, lead actor Brendan Fraser made an emotional comeback at the Venice Film Festival.His performance in new movie The Whale has been met with critical acclaim, with industry insiders predicting a future Oscar nomination.After Brendan's return to the limelight, we take a look at what happened to him and his George of the Jungle co-stars after the film's success.Brendan Fraser became an overnight superstar when he played the lead in George of the Jungle after the movie made a whopping $174million at the box office.He went on to carve a very successful career as an actor, starring in the horror adventure trilogy The Mummy from 1999.He later admitted that the movies took a huge toll on him physically and revealed he underwent several surgeries due to the effects of the stunt work he did on set.He told GQ in 2018 he had a laminectomy to remove a vertebrae from his spine, a partial knee replacement and a repair on his vocal chord.His marriage to his ex wife, Afton Smith, also fell apart in 2007 and he was ordered to pay $50,000 a month for a period of 10 years as part of the divorce settlement.While promoting a film in 2016, fans were alarmed when he appeared disconnected in an interview, which he said was because of the death of his mother a few days prior.His dramatic transformation over the years due to health reasons also became cause for concern.But he has now found love again with Jeanne Moore and was filmed wiping away a tear after receiving a six-minute

Who is Brendan Fraser? Why did he disappear and what happened to The Whale actor?
Brendan Fraser received a six-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival for his work in The Whale.The actor was brought to tears throughout, as for the first time in over a decade he is the centre of attention in Hollywood.For a time, Brendan was everywhere, starring in the biggest blockbusters that inspired a generation through the 90s and early 2000s.However, his fame all came crashing down as he fell out of favour with the inner circle of cinema.He opened up about it all in 2018 after he claimed he was the victim of sexual assault by former movie chief Philip Berk, which he denied in an email to GQ.For millennials that enjoyed their childhood through the late 90s and early 2000s, Brendan Fraser was one of the biggest names in Hollywood.He rose to prominence through 1997’s George of the Jungle, but became a household name when he starred as Rick O’Connell in 1999’s The Mummy.The turning point came in 2008 for Brendan, as he led two films that failed commercially and critically.The first was the ill-judged Journey to the Center of the Earth and the second was the threequel, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which essentially ended the franchise with a whimper.He never left acting though, but rather starred in much smaller roles and projects.The bulk of which was in TV, in series such as Texas Rising, The Affair and Condor.Things took a turn for the better in 2019 though, as he joined the cast of DC’s Doom Patrol.At 2022’s Venice Film Festival, Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale premiered, bringing Brendan back into the limelight.It’s just the beginning though, as he will appear alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.Brendan Fraser claims he is the victim

Brendan Fraser breaks down in tears, ‘The Whale’ receives standing ovation
Brendan Fraser reveled in the spotlight once again at the Venice Film Festival and was praised for his role in the upcoming Darren Aronofsky movie, “The Whale.”The 53-year-old actor kept his best composure while walking the red carpet of the famed festival, only to break down in tears once inside the cinema as theatergoers gave the star a six-minute standing ovation for his performance, according to Variety.Fraser, who has largely stayed out of the spotlight after addressing physical ailments due to performing many of his own stunts on screen, was then also plagued by the mental repercussion of an alleged sexual assault incident that happened in 2003.He’s returning to the silver screen again for what many believe could be an Oscar contending role as Charlie, a 600-pound gay man who feels as though his life is coming to an end.Fraser was noticeably moved by the response to the film that he could barely stand up as the crowd cheered once the credits rolled when the movie was over in a video captured from inside the festival.“Brendan Fraser is back — and he sobbed during the #Venezia79 six-minute standing ovation for #TheWhale,” Ramin Setoodeh tweeted.He then added, “The standing ovation for #TheWhale was so enthusiastic, Brendan Fraser tried to leave the theater but the crowd’s applause made him stay.”During a pre-show interview with press, Fraser showed gratitude for “the warm reception” he’s received since discussing his latest work.“I’m looking forward to how this film makes a deep impression on everyone as much as it has on me,” he said, via The New York Times.Fraser recalled having to wear an extensive amount of prosthetics that sometimes weighed up to 300 pounds to play Charlie, a reclusive character based on the
