Brendan Fraser has been back in the spotlight thanks to his Oscar-winning turn in The Whale… and that helped boost his net worth. Fraser took some time off from acting a few years ago.
He then stepped back in front of the cameras to film The Whale, according to Celebrity Net Worth. It was a demanding role for him to accept. He was in the makeup chair for hours to get his physical look just right for the role. Fraser came through with flying colors with his acting. With that said, what is Brendan Fraser’s net worth?
Fraser, who first popped up in Encino Man along with Sean Astin and Pauly Shore, reportedly has a net worth of around $20 million. His work received raves throughout the 1990s. Fraser was a staple in The Mummy franchise and grabbed the spotlight in George of the Jungle, Crash, and The Quiet American.
Brendan Fraser Makes First TV Appearance
His first television appearance was in 1998 on an episode of America’s Most Wanted. A lot of his roles l
ed to solid paydays in his career. As far as TV goes, other projects include The Simpsons, King of the Hill, Scrubs, and The Affair. Film work includes his efforts as an executive producer on The Last Time, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Furry Vengeance, and Stand Off.
Brendan Fraser’s net worth was helped by his films back in the 1990s and 2000s. He was banking anywhere from $4 million to $14 million in movie paychecks. But he took a break from making movies in 2014. Fraser has had a few surgeries on his body during his lifetime.
He’s been married once to Afton Smith and had three children during their marriage. It ended in divorce in 2008. Fraser and Smith were involved in discussions over alimony. The result hurt Fraser’s finances. He’s reportedly been seeing makeup artist Jeanne Moore since 2022.
Fraser’s movie career in recent years also has included appearances in No Sudden Move and Killers of the Flower Moon.
Fans Connected With Character In ‘The Whale’
But his fans were glad to see Fraser back on the big screen as Charlie in The Whale. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Fraser talked about playing Charlie, a very obese man. “He is clearly encumbered by his body,” Fraser says. “And when the body has weight on it like that, it compresses the lungs. Breathing is a huge issue for people with obesity — there’s sometimes a rattle and a wheeze in the lungs. So his voice is pinched and fraught for all those reasons, but mostly because of the emotionality of the character.”
With his Oscar in tow, Brendan Fraser’s net worth can only go up from here. It should be some good times ahead for the Canadian-American actor. But Fraser will keep on being busy with different projects in his sight.
