So in this article, we’ll cover his dating life as well as his professional life. You must remember that adventurer Rick O’Connell from our childhood favorite The Mummy trilogy. Brendan played that character on screen, and it was one of his most well-received and appreciated performances to date. Earlier, this role was offered to many celebrated names, like Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Tom Crise, and even Matt Damon could not fit the role into his schedule. Thanks to all of them, Brendan got the chance and did justice to the role. Through his character, he connected to the audiences so well that now we cannot even imagine anyone else other than Brendan as Rick.

Brendan was the pop star of the 1990s and experienced a huge rise in his fan following, especially female followers.

Who is Brendan Fraser Dating?
Well, currently the dreamboat of the 1990s, Brendan Fraser is single and is not dating anyone. Earlier, Brendan was married to actress Afton Smith, and they both have three sons together. Brendan and Afton first met at Winona Ryder’s barbeque party at her house back in 1993. Brendan was quite a celebrated name by 1998 as he already had starred in hits like Geoge of the Jungle and School Ties. He broke many hearts on September 27, 1998, as he married Afton Smith. The couple was literally adored by the fans, but unfortunately, after 14 years of togetherness, they parted their ways. The divorce was finalized in 2007. Since then, Brendan has not dated anyone, and from this, he might sound like a one-girl man.
The decline of 1990s dreamboat
Every other movie in the 1990s possibly started Brendan Fraser. The previous sentence perfectly describes Brendan’s spiking popularity back then. 1999’s adventure fantasy film “The Mummy” marked his biggest commercial success. The film debuted on May 7 and grossed a whopping $416.4 million worldwide against the budget of just $80 million. As a result of this smash-hit success, he got the chance to star in the sequels of the movie, The Mummy Returns(2001) and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor(2008). His character Rick O’ Connell and his popular lines like “I only gamble with my life, never my money” will be etched in the hearts of fans forever.
Having starred in many box office successes like George of the Jungle(1998), Dudley Do-Right(1999), Blast From The Past(1999), Bedazzled(2000), Monkeybone(2001), The Quite American(2002), Crash(2004), and Furry Vengence (2010); his career started declining as his movies didn’t perform well at the box office. After 2010 he appeared in a few more movies till he suddenly disappeared from Hollywood. The reason is said to be his mother’s death, followed by sexual assault by Phillip Berk back in 2003. He opened about this in 2018 and told this to be the reason for his depression and health issues. But now, he is also all set to star in Doom Patrol’s season 3, which will be premiering this year in September. It seems like he is back to where he belongs, “The Movie Industry”.
