Brendan Fraser started his career in 1991, making his film debut as a sailor headed to Vietnam in Dogfight. However, we’re most familiar with him in films such as AirheadsGeorge of the JungleBedazzled and, of course, The Mummy. He was the leading star in the 1990s, with film after film coming out in the decade. His physique and ultimately being tall, dark, and handsome landed him roles in action movies, but his range in acting ability had us all glued to the screens.

But suddenly, he disappeared around 2003. Considering the amount of work he’d done the previous decade, maybe he was taking a well-deserved break. Sadly, the reality was a lot darker. Eventually, Brendan returned, shocking fans by how much he had changed. His eyes were less bright, he seemed to have lost his lively sparkle and radiating joy we’d become used to. So, what had happened to Brendan?

Brendan revealed to GQ in 2018 his physical and psychological struggles. He’d spent seven years in and out of hospitals due to injuries he sustained performing his own stunts. The actor told GQ: “By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China, I was put together with tape and ice. I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily.” Multitudes of surgeries on his spine, knees, vocal chords were only the tip of the iceberg.
