Why Brendan Left Hollywood?
To state some very obvious reasons that led to a decline in Brendan’s career is some of his script choices that didn’t work out, notably playing Superman in the 2006 film “Superman Returns”. Further doing stunts and action scenes took a major toll on the actor’s health. However are these the only reasons? Well, no! There’s a lot more to it.
Brendan Fraser was sexually assaulted in 2003 by Phil Berk, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that hosts the Golden Globes.
In an interview with GQ, he confessed, “His left hand reaches around, grabs my a** cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around. I felt ill. I felt like a little kid. I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry … I felt like someone had thrown invisible paint on me.”
Following the incident, Fraser sunk in deep depression and eventually took a leave from his acting career.
