Brendan Fraser thinks he has never been far away from his career
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, the actor talked about his long absence from the industry. However, he didn’t think he was far away from his career.
The Mummy actor said, “I’ve never been that far away, But I’m happy to be here now.”
“People come up to me and said Welcome back. Good that you’re back. I’m glad to see you back.’ And I say thank you. And some of them even go, ‘We’ve missed you. Where have you been?’ You know, like almost letting me know that I disappointed them. And the first thing out of my mouth is ‘I was never that far away.”- the 53-year-old added.
Fraser alleged Philip Berk of groping in 2003 four years ago
As per the sources, the actor will not be invited to the 2023 Golden Globes for a serious reason. Although, he was nominated for the Whales.
He alleged being groped by Philip Berk in 2003 four years ago at a luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Berk is the former president and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They organize the Golden Globes which explains his absence from the event.
However, Brek declined the allegations. In 2018 he told GQ, “Mr. Fraser’s version is a total fabrication. My apology admitted no wrongdoing, the usual ‘If I’ve done anything that upset Mr. Fraser, it was not intended and I apologize.'”
