Brendan Fraser says nobody has ever pronounced his name right

Brendan Fraser says nobody has ever pronounced his name right

Brendan Fraser says that everyone gets the pronunciation of his name wrong, but he has an easy way to remember how to say it correctly.

There’s perhaps not a single person out there who dislikes Brendan Fraser. The iconic actor, best known for his roles in George of the Jungle and The Mummy has been having a huge career comeback lately - he recently starred in The Whale, a psychological drama directed by Darren Aronofsky.

The Whale follows the story a 600-pound middle-aged man trying to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter after becoming a social recluse, due to years of binge-eating as a result of the guilt he felt for abandoning his family to be with his lover. Back in September, Fraser received an award at the Toronto International Film Festival, and pointed out that he’s normally the one giving out the awards, as opposed to receiving them himself.

While you’re here, be sure to take a look at Fraser's super wholesome response to a fan during a Q&A session below.

Despite all the love for the actor though, as the Daily Mail reports, you might be surprised to discover that everyone’s been saying his name wrong, apparently. Speaking to Adam Sandler in a recent Variety Actors on Actors video, he claimed that “no one’s ever gotten my name right”.

Sandler pronounces his fellow actor’s name as “Frasier”, to which Fraser replies: “It’s Fraser. [Like] the thing you shave with, a razor.” Simple enough, right?

Unfortunately, later in the interview, Sandler forgot again - while Fraser initially made a shaving gesture to try and remind him of the razor analogy, he eventually added: “Ok. F**k it. No one’s ever gotten my name right.”

So, if you’ve been adding that extra ‘i’ sound in there, now’s the time to stop. Hopefully, this new interview will at least prompt more people to start saying the guy’s name correctly - especially if he’s going to continue making appearances in more big roles.
