Actor Brendan Fraser looked unrecognisable on beach holiday in Barbados recently after claiming that doing his own movie stunts “ruined” his body.

The father-of-three looked shockingly different as he enjoyed a day of snorkeling with his sons, Griffin, 15, Holden, 13, and Leland, 11, who he shares with former wife Afton Smith, in Barbados on Wednesday, reports mirror.co.uk.
The 49-year-old was a hearthrob in the 1990s and is best known for playing Rick O’Connell in The Mummy films. He also starred in George of the Jungle in 1997 and played the rugged caveman in California Man in 1992.


Earlier this month, Fraser revealed how doing his own stunts in the action movies he became famous for, ruined his body. “By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China (in 2008), I was put together with tape and ice,” he told GQ magazine.
“Because they are small and light and they can fit under your clothes. I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily.”
The actor needed multiple surgeries on his back. He also underwent a partial knee replacement and surgery to repair his vocal cords.


He’s also claimed he was subjected to sexual assault by the then-president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk, during the height of his career.
“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.”
The HFPA said in a statement that it would investigate the allegation and that it “stands firmly” against sexual harassment.
Brendan is now starring in new FX drama, Trust, which explores J Paul Getty III’a kidnapping.
