The Whale director hits back at criticism over Brendan Fraser wearing 'fat suit' to play obese man

The Whale director Darren Aronofsky has hit back at criticism over Brendan Fraser wearing a prosthetic 'fat suit' to play an obese man in the critically-acclaimed film.The film sees Fraser play a 600-pound gay man confined to a wheelchair and hoping to reconnect with his estranged daughter - with The Mummy actor donning the 300 pound 'fat suit' filled with airsoft pellets, dried beans, and marbles for his scenes.After reviews accused the film of lacking 'empathy' due to the 'frightful' physical portrayal of Fraser's character Charlie,  Aronofsky lauded the make-up and prosthetics on his team for lending a 'realism' to the scenes.Saying the criticism 'made no sense' to him, he told Yahoo Entertainment: 'Actors have been using make-up since the beginning of acting—that’s one of their tools.  Response: The Whale director Darren Aronofsky has hit back at criticism over Brendan Fraser wearing a prosthetic 'fat suit' to play an obese man in the critically-acclaimed film'And the lengths we went to portray the realism of the makeup has never been done before. One of my first calls after casting Brendan was to my makeup artist,'I asked him, "Can we do something that’s realistic?"  Because if it’s going to look like a joke, then we shouldn’t do it.' He added that he wanted to change the perception of obese people on screen who are 'generally written as bad guys or as punch lines' - to create a 'fully worked-out character.'Aronofsky also told The Los Angeles Times’ The Envelope podcast about his work with  the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), saying: 'They really feel this is going to open up people’s eyes.

‘The Whale’ Star Hong Chau On Going From Wanting To Stay Home And Do Nothing To Making Four Films: “It Was A Really Nutty Year For Me”

Hong Chau stole the show as a fierce one-legged Vietnamese activist in Alexander Payne’s 2017 star-packed social satire Downsizing. Now, in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale, she’s doing it again: this time she plays Liz, a no-nonsense caregiver who helps reclusive 600-pound English professor Charlie (Brendan Fraser) manage his failing health while he struggles to reconnect with his estranged and thoroughly unlikable teenage daughter (Sadie Sink). As the story unfolds, the unexpected reasons for Liz’s dedication to Charlie are gradually revealed, and Chau’s scene-stealing performance — subtle and heartbreaking — balances the pain of Liz’s loss with a poignant frustration at her own impotence.
