Brendan Fraser is a happy owner of an Oscar – and a proud father of three. The Whale actor has made countless headlines in the past year thanks to his stellar performance as a morbidly obese recluse named Charlie. He starred alongside Stranger Things actress Sadie Sink, who users believe has some resemblance to one of his sons!
This week, Brendan's 16-year-old son – Leland Francis Fraser – went viral on TikTok and was dubbed the "male version" of Sadie Sink. The two share beautiful red locks, and some are even joking that Leland's the reason why they cast Sadie in The Whale.
"sadie sink male version," @anyajoie captions her video on TikTok. Her short slideshow of Leland has garnered 66,000 likes in just one day.
"oh so thats why they casted sadie as his daughter," @pink_squirel comments.
Leland Fraser is not the only one who's gone viral recently. Brendan's middle child, Holden, 18, was also the talk this week on social media. "This week I learned that Brandon Fraser has beautiful sons. Also. TALL AF MY GOODNESS. Brendan is fully like 6'2"ish right?" tweeted @xicacha.
Speaking of height, Brendan's eldest son, Griffin, just turned 20 and is already 6'5" tall. When Brendan opened up about his role as Charlie, he said he understood what it's like to have a loved one struggling with obesity. "I have three kids of my own, my oldest son Griffin has special needs – he's autistic," he said in a sweet shout-out to Griffin. "He just turned 20, he's a big kid, he's six foot five, he's got big hands and feet, a big body. I understand intimately what it is to be close to a person who lives with obesity."
He adds, “He doesn’t know what cynicism is. You can’t insult him. He can’t insult you. He’s the happiest person and is, in my life and many others’, also the manifestation of love.”
Brendan shares his three kids with his ex-wife, Afton Smith. In 2008, the actor spoke out about his children. “Having kids makes your life better, plain and simple," the 53-year-old said. This year, the world got a chance to witness The Mummy actor make a comeback at the 95th Academy Awards with his two sons, Leland and Holden, and his girlfriend, Jeanne Moore.
