A total transformation. Brendan Fraser plays a 600-pound man living with obesity in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming film The Whale.

“It’s gonna be like something you haven’t seen before,” Fraser, 53, told Unilad of the project in October 2021. “That’s really all I can tell you. … The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome. This is certainly far removed from anything I’ve ever done. … I do know it’s going to make a lasting impression.”

A first photo from the film shared via A24’s official Twitter account shows the Mummy actor in character as Charlie. The Whale will premiere at the 79th Venice Film Festival later this summer.

Stranger ThingsSadie Sink plays Fraser’s estranged teenage daughter, Ellie in the psychological drama. The 20-year-old actress talked about the movie during a June interview with Collider.

“It was a really small cast and a small set, and we had a whole three weeks of rehearsal and Darren kind of wanted to treat it as if it were a play, because The Whale originally was a play. The way he staged it and the way we rehearsed it, the same as you would do in a theater company, he taped the walls of the set and everything so that we could rehearse in a mock space I guess,” she told the outlet.

The Fear Street Trilogy star added that the Aronofsky drama was “just a really creatively fulfilling project to work on.”

The Whale is the latest film to stir up controversy regarding actors wearing fat suits. After the project was announced in January 2021, author and podcaster Aubrey Gordon shared the announcement via Twitter, writing, “It is so disheartening, exhausting and profoundly isolating to see this concept created over & over & over again, and reliably created by people who aren’t fat. Fellow fats (people who currently wear plus sizes): how are you feeling?”

In March, Renée Zelwegger defended her decision to wear a fat suit for her TV series The Thing About Pam.

“The idea is accuracy,” the 53-year-old Oscar winner, who plays real-life convicted murderer Pam Hupp in the show, told Entertainment Tonight. “I think, especially in the case of telling this story, it was really important to as closely resemble Pam Hupp as we possibly could, because she seems so familiar. She seems like someone that we recognize and we know.”

However, not all actors who’ve played plus-sized characters feel confident in their decisions after further reflection. Sarah Paulson admitted to having regrets about wearing a body prosthetic to portray Linda Tripp in Impeachment: American Crime Story.

“I think the thing I think about the most is that I regret not thinking about it more fully. And that is an important thing for me to think about and reflect on,” the American Horror Story star, who also gained 30 pounds for the role, told the Los Angeles Times in August 2021. “I also know it’s a privileged place to be sitting and thinking about it and reflecting on it, having already gotten to do it, and having had an opportunity that someone else didn’t have. You can only learn what you learn when you learn it.”

Collin Gosselin says ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ tore his family apart | CNN

Published

CNN
 — 

Former child reality star Collin Gosselin is now 18 years old and says he hasn’t been in contact with his mother or the bulk of his siblings for years.

“I want to believe it was because of TV and what being in the public eye does to a family,” the teen recently told “Entertainment Tonight.” “I think it tore us apart.”

The younger Gosselin is speaking out about his estrangement and the drama surrounding his family, which found fame on the TLC series “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”

Years ago, Kate Gosselin went public about putting Collin, one of her sextuplets, in a facility because she said he had “special needs.”

That came after her contentious divorce from Jon Gosselin.

The Gosselins’ series, which premiered in 2007, focused on their life raising sextuplets and twin daughters.

The show eventually became known as “Kate Plus 8” after the couple divorced in 2009, with episodes that aired off and on between 2010 and 2017. (TLC is owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Jon Gosselin eventually was granted custody of Collin, who lives with his sister Hannah, at their father’s home.

But Collin Gosselin said his relationship with his mother Kate is nonexistent.

“It’s unfortunate that we didn’t have a relationship,” he said. “I think every son wants to have a relationship with their mom. But I’m doing very well.”

He also said he has not spoken with the four other sextuplets – Alexis, Aaden, Joel and Leah – or their 22-year-old sisters, twins Cara and Mady, in five or six years.

“I want to respect their space and their time and respect how they feel about everything,” he said. “So I’m kind of just waiting for the day that they reach out.”

CNN has reached out to reps for Kate Gosselin for comment. She is set to appear in a new reality series “Special Forces: The Ultimate Test” in which she and other celebs compete as part of a special forces training camp.

At one point, Justin walked behind Pattie and they both appeared relaxed and content. She had her hair down and carried a purse that matched her jacket. It’s unclear if anyone else joined them for the service but it’s the first time they’ve been seen out together in public for a while.

Before Justin’s latest outing with his mom, he was seen on an outing with his younger brother, Jaxon, 12, who is the son of his father Jeremy Bieber. The siblings were getting coffee in L.A.’s Larchmont neighborhood and both wore matching black puffer coats. Justin put his hand on Jaxon’s shoulder at one point, showing off their close bond.

When Justin’s not hanging out with just his mom or siblings, he’s hanging with his wife, Hailey Bieber. The lovebirds, who were married in 2018, are often seen at events or on casual outings in L.A. and beyond, and also show off their love on social media whenever they can. They recently posed for cute pics while sitting on a plane together and the “Baby” singer shared them in an Instagram post he captioned with several red heart emojis.

The husband and wife also dressed to impress to enjoy a dinner at Nobu restaurant on Nov. 29. They were joined by Kendall Jenner and showed off PDA by holding hands. Hailey looked incredible in a red dress and Justin went for a more stylish casual look that included a hoodie and jeans.
