“Having children makes your life better, plain and simple”, Brendan Fraser said red book in 2008. Although Brendan has experienced many ups and downs, he has always had three people by his side: his sons, Griffin FraserHolden Fraser and Leland Fraser. When Brendan performs at screenings in 2022 – for his comeback feature, The whaledirected by Darren Aronofsky – the world is reacquainted with the former heartthrob of the ’90s and the children he helped raise.

Brendan Fraser shares his sons with his ex-wife Afton Smith. Brendan and Afton (a former actress-turned-writer) were married from 1998 to 2008. In 2018, Brendan recounted GQ that his sons live with their mother in Greenwich, Connecticut, not far from his home in Bedford, New York. “They’re here all the time,” he said.

Griffin Arthur Fraser was born in 2002. “Griffin is classified on the autism spectrum,” Brendan said in a 2018 interview GQ. “Um, and that’s why he needs extra love in the world, and he’s getting it. And his brothers, ever since they were little, one was always the spokesman and the other the executor.”

According to his father, Griffin is “a cure for whoever meets him, I’ve noticed. Humans have rough edges. Or he just makes them, I don’t know… puts things more sharply and maybe finds a way to have a little more compassion. You don’t put yourself first around him that much.”

Brendan spoke more about his eldest son in one interview Magazine chat with Freddie Prinze Jr. “I have three children myself. My oldest son Griffin has special needs. he is autistic He just turned 20. He’s a big kid. He is 1.80 meters tall. He has big hands and feet, a big body. I fully understand what it means to be close to a person living with obesity. And because of the beauty of his spectrum – call it a disorder, if you will, I disagree – he doesn’t understand irony.

“He doesn’t know what cynicism is,” Fraser continued. “You can’t insult him. He can’t insult you. He is the happiest person and in my life and in many others also the manifestation of love. Being with my children, their mother and our family gave me so much love that if I ever had to uphold something valuable I tried to translate it into what was important [Brendan’s character in The Whale] Charlie, I didn’t have to look far.”

Holden Fletcher Fraser was born in 2004. He accompanied Brendan to a screening in New York City The whale in November 2022 and was already taller than his famous father.

In 2008, Brendan told red book about something Holden said. “The other day my 4-year-old saw a tree in bloom and said, ‘Daddy, it’s raining petals,'” Fraser said. “That was poetry that melted my heart into a squishy, ​​delicious fudgsicle.”

Back then, the Fraser kids knew nothing about Brendan’s career. “You don’t know,” he said red book. “They’re 5, 4 and 2, so they’re more into SpongeBob SquarePants. If I say I’m going to work and they ask what that means, I’ll show them a picture of me flying through the air with a monster. They’ll say, “Cool,” and that’s it. To them, I’m just the guy who brings them pirate loot when they’re hungry.”

Leland Fraser

Leland Francis Fraser was born in 2006, making him the youngest. Like his brothers, Leland grew up away from the public eye.

Brendan described Leland as a “professional fire plug” during a 2010 appearance. The Rachel Ray ShowPer PERSONS. “He goes through bushes and thorns and comes out the other side scratched and smiling. Everything is good!”

Fraser also spoke about how devoted he is to his children in a 2010 interview with Magazine parade. “I always hug and kiss them, whether they like it or not. I say, ‘Come here, you’ and you blow raspberries on it. That’s what I do.”

“It makes my heart stop beating for a moment to think that my children could be in some way in danger,” he added. “I mean, it really scares me. Of course I would do anything to save her. What parent wouldn’t? I would throw myself in front of a train if I had to for her welfare. That doesn’t mean you can protect them from everything, but you have to try.”
