George of the Jungle and The Mummy star Brendan Fraser looked totally different during a rare public appearance in New York.

Best known for his roles in George of the Jungle and The Mummy trilogy, Brendan Fraser has made a rare public appearance in New York.

The 52-year-old star stepped out for the premiere of his new film, No Sudden Moves, at the Tribeca Film Festival, joining co-stars David Harbour and Jon Hamm.

Fans were quick to speak out in support of the actor, taking to social media to express how much they “miss Brendan Fraser”.

“As a 90s teen, I have a serious soft spot for Brendan Phrase. I hope he’s healthy and happy,” wrote one.

“2021 Brendan Fraser is without a doubt my favourite Brendan Fraser,” said another.

“Fell in love with him in The Mummy, and I’ll always love him,” a third person tweeted.

Fraser’s appearance comes after it was revealed earlier this year he’ll start as a 272kg recluse in the upcoming Darren Aronofsky-directed film The Whale.

His character in the film, Charlie, lives alone in a Mormon area of Idaho and is trying to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter, having become estranged when he came out as gay. His grief at the loss of his partner triggers a compulsive eating habit.

Reaching what seemed to be the height of his career in the mid-2000s, Fraser disappeared completely, claiming in 2018 that he had been “black-listed” by Hollywood.

In an interview with GQ, Fraser alleged he had been sexually assaulted by former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2003 – with the incident causing Fraser to spiral into a depression.

In an email to GQ, Mr Berk denied the claim, saying Mr Frasier’s version was a “total fabrication”.

“His left hand reaches around, grabs my arse cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around,” Fraser said of the alleged assault.

“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.”

Fraser claimed that as a result of the ordeal, he was rarely invited to the Golden Globes, hosted by the HFPA, describing the silence as “deafening”.

“The phone does stop ringing in your career, and you start asking yourself why. There are many reasons, but was this one of them? I think it was,” he said.
