The actor said the look was achieved through a prosthetic suit that added 300 lbs. to Fraser. He spoke about the six-hour process of putting the suit on to Vanity Fair.

“I looked at other body suits that had been used in comedies over the years, usually for a one-note joke. Whether intended or not, the joke is, it defies gravity. This was not that,” he said.

Fraser called the suit “beautiful and arresting.” He said it was “not exactly comfortable” while on set.

The actor and the film’s director faced backlash over the use of the suit. One critic, who had no watched the film. wrote, “I don’t even care what ”The Whale” is about. They cast Brendan Fraser as the title character and put him in a fat suit. The title is “The Whale.”
