The actor is still sought after by the media, precisely because the movie and his performance as an obesity professor never stops making headlines this current award season. In a recent interview with Sirius XM radio station, Brendan Fraser He described his experience as follows:
As I went on to play this character, I felt in my heart that I might no longer be invited to do an actor’s work.

We didn’t know if we would be back at work the next day. But I don’t need to say that.
