    Brendan Fraser has been spilling beans ever since he made a major comeback with ‘The Whale.’ He has talked about his good and bad experiences in the Hollywood industry.

    In his first-ever appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the 54-year-old actor talked about boycotting Golden Globes. “I don’t need everyone to stand in solidarity with me,” he said.

    He stated that it’s his fight and “no one else’s.” Fraser said that Hollywood supporting him in this would be a huge step. “It would be a calculated risk and it could also be trivialized very easily by the cynical view of this all.”

    Talking about his absence from this year’s Golden Globes, Fraser said that his “mother didn’t raise a hypocrite, and I didn’t wanna sit and feel like I really don’t know if I want this.

    The ‘George of the Jungle‘ actor skipped the 2023 Globes ceremony. Previously, he had talked about how the HFPA did not take any action, reconcile or even apologize to him after he revealed he was allegedly groped by a member.

    The Oscar-nominated actor received a nomination at the Globes. However, the award went to Austin Butler for portraying Elvis Presley in the biographical drama ‘Elvis‘.

    He said that even if he had won the award, it “would mean nothing to me.” The actor said he does not want it or did not ask anyone to be considered, calling it a “hood ornament.”
