After a sexual assault case that left him tantalized, Brendan Fraser suddenly disappeared from the movie industry. Ten years ago, the star was one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but where is he now?
In the ’90s and early 2000s, Brendan Fraser was one of the biggest names in the movie industry.

But post-2008, he disappeared largely from starring in any significant role or major movie.
Despite several memes and speculations about drugs and illnesses, some even blaming the actor for poor career choices, the truth behind him laying low is quite intriguing.
