Here's How Brendan Fraser Lost His Movie Millions

In February 2013, Radar Online reported that Brendan Fraser blamed his career slump, at least in part, on a handful of "medical issues" that stunted his work. "I believe I probably was trying too hard," he subsequently told GQ in 2018, "in a way that's destructive." Aside from suffering from what GQ described as "diminishing returns" at the box office, Fraser's films had taken a toll on the actor's physical well-being, too.

"By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China [in 2008], I was put together with tape and ice," Fraser quipped, perhaps unconsciously comparing his plight to the titular character of that film. He also needed to undergo "a laminectomy," and it didn't go very well at all. "The lumbar didn't take," he explained, "so they had to do it again a year later."

When all is said and done, Fraser claims he spent about seven years holed up inside one hospital or another. During that dismal period, GQ reports he had "his vocal cords repaired," endured a "partial knee replacement," and underwent another procedure to address his "compressed spinal pads." The word picture we're trying to paint here: Fraser was in pretty bad shape, not to mention, none of that sounds cheap.
