Man of the moment: Brendan Fraser, 53, attended Variety's The New York Party edition with a special event that honored the actor and director Darren Aronofsky for their work on their new film, The Whale, held at the American Bar in New York City on WednesdayThe event served as a cross promotion of sorts for the publication, considering Fraser and Aronofsky are also on the cover Variety's current 'The New York Issue'.The former star of The Mummy trilogy, 53, kicked his evening off by stepping out in front of photographers decked out in navy blue slacks with a navy blue pinstripe blazer.

Brendan Fraser in tears as he receives wild standing ovation at The Whale’s world premiere in Venice
Brendan Fraser has received a rapturous response at Venice Film Festival thanks to this role in new movie The Whale, which received a six-minute standing ovation – and made the actor a little teary.Having already scooped the Toronto International Film Festival TIFF Tribute Award for his performance in the film – seen as a pretty influential gong ahead of Oscar nominations – Fraser was overwhelmed by excited fans on the red carpet on Sunday, as well as the reception The Whale received at its first screening.The Darren Aronofsky flick sees the 53-year-old play a reclusive English teacher who is battling with a compulsive eating disorder and trying to rebuild his relationship with estranged teenage daughter, Elle (Stranger Things actress Sadie Sink). The dramedy is based on the play by Samuel D Hunter and has already caused a stir with its transformation of Fraser into a 600 pound man, as well as celebration over the Fraserenaissance, which is showing no sign of slowing down.Variety’s co-editor-in-chief Ramin Setoodeh posted footage from after the film’s finish in Venice, which showed director Aronofsky congratulating his team with hugs as the clapping continued, before encouraging Fraser to rise to his feet and soak up the congratulations.‘The standing ovation for #TheWhale was so enthusiastic, Brendan Fraser tried to leave the theater but the crowd’s applause made him stay,’ he added 15 minutes later, with a second clip of Fraser.To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 videoBrendan Fraser is back â and he sobbed during the #Venezia79 six-minute standing ovation for #TheWhale.
