Brendan Fraser Finally Worked Up The Nerve To Speak About Being Assaulted By Ex-Golden Globes President

Date February 26, 2018

Everyone must have probably noticed that Brendan Fraser was absent for some time from the cinema life, and there were a few reasons for that. First, he had gone through a lot of health troubles that only made him stronger. The actor had undergone several surgeries, went through a divorce, some of his kids were born, including the one who is rated on the autism spectrum, and his mother died. People will agree, it’s a lot.

But, in addition to all that, Brendan has been hiding one thing from everyone all these years. He told only his wife about what’s happened. Now, it’s our turn. The actor has decided to join the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements. He revealed something that had happened to him some time ago.

The actor told his story about sexual assault by ex-Hollywood Foreign Press Association president, Philip Berk. Brendan Fraser says it had happened in the summer of 2003 during the luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
