Viewers Left Concerned After Brendan Fraser’s Emotional Appearance on TV (VIDEO)

It’s been a hell of a year for Brendan Fraser, with him making his long-awaited comeback to the top.

But some people have raised concerns after he appeared to be a ‘broken man’ during a recent interview:

The film centres on a 600lb man called Charlie, played by Fraser, as he tries to reconnect with his teenage daughter.

Fraser has been heavily praised for his performance, receiving a six-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival last year, winning a Critics Choice award and most recently nominated for an Oscar.

However, some fans became worried after the 54-year-old appeared in Lorraine to talk about the movie and his Brenaissance.

If you’ve seen the actor talk about the film and Charlie’s story, you’ll know how emotional it is for him, as is his sudden return to the spotlight.

And some viewers felt like it seemed to be getting to him a little.

“Is it just me or does Brendan Fraser look and sound like a broken man on @lorraine this morning,” wrote one. “I hope he’s not and it’s jetlag.”

Another commented: “Love Brendan Fraser movies, but he does look a troubled man.”

“Brendan Fraser on @lorraine has my heart, I just want to hug him!” put a third.

While someone else added: “Brendan Fraser tearing up at receiving a compliment on the Lorraine show.”

This comes after Fraser managed to beat the likes of Austin Butler for Elvis, Tom Cruise for Top Gun: Maverick, Colin Farrell for The Banshees of Inisherin, Paul Mescal for Aftersun, and Bill Nighy for Living to the Best Actor gong at the Critics Choice Awards recently.

In an emotional acceptance speech, Fraser said: “This movie, The Whale, it’s about love, it’s about redemption.

“It’s about finding the light in a dark place and I’m so lucky to have worked with an ensemble that is incredible.

“Darren Aronofsky, I was in the wilderness, and I probably should have left a trail of breadcrumbs, but you’ve found me.

“And like all the best directors, you merely just showed me where to go to get to where I needed to be.”

He added: “If you, like a guy like Charlie, who I played in this movie, in any way, struggle with obesity, or you just feel like you’re in a dark sea.

“I want you to know that if you too, can have the strength to just get to your feet and go to the light. Good things will happen.”

Now, we’ve just got to wait and see if he can complete his comeback with an Oscar win.

Melanie Griffith’s Pals Concerned Cancer Has Returned

Melanie Griffith’s new facial scar has sparked fears the former Body Double beauty’s skin cancer has returned, has learned.

The Golden Globe winner, 65, was recently caught on camera in West Hollywood with a long, jagged mark on her left cheek. Though Melanie hasn’t addressed the speculation, an insider spilled, “She’s had some issues with skin cancer in the not-too-distant past, and people around her worry she had a recurrence that required more surgery.

“The healing scar looks pretty horrid.”

The aging Working Girl actress has had multiple surgeries since 2009 for skin cancers, and five years ago, she was spotted with a bandage on her nose after getting a procedure to remove a dangerous growth.

Florida-based Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who hasn’t treated Melanie, said, “The odds are overwhelming that this type of surgery was for a skin cancer.”

He explained basal cell skin cancers, which are usually curable, account for 95 percent of all cases of the condition and can be easy for a surgeon to remove in the disease’s early stage when growths are solely on the surface.

However, Mirkin warned, “When the skin cancer is around the ears, the nose, the eyes and the mouth, the cancer can burrow underneath the skin, so more surgery is necessary.

“The rule is to keep on cutting until you find no more skin cancer in the specimens removed. So, this was an extensive surgery,” he claimed.

“If this were a squamous cell carcinoma — a different type of cancer, which is less common — it is acceptable to keep on cutting until you find that you have completely normal skin 360 degrees around it.”

In the past, Melanie has urged fans to protect themselves from UV rays.

“If you lay in the sun, are exposed to lots of sun, be CAREFUL. Use sunscreen. Get checked out by your dermatologist,” she stated.

Melanie is only 65 years old. She has three kids—daughters including actress Dakota Johnson, 33, Stella Banderas, 26, and son Alexander Bauer, 37.

NFL Fans are Livid Over National Anthem Singer for Superbowl

We’re still waiting to find out which teams will play for Super Bowl LVII, but one part of the biggest sporting event of the year is set: the music!

The NFL, Roc Nation, and Apple Music announced back in September that Grammy Award winner Rihanna will be taking the stage for what’s sure to be a memorable halftime show, but fans have been waiting to find out who will take part in the pregame entertainment. And we’re excited to see a major country music star on the list.

The NFL made the announcement on Instagram on January 24. R&B star Babyface will be singing “America the Beautiful,” Abbott Elementary star Sheryl Lee Ralph will be on hand to perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” and country star Chris Stapleton has the honors of performing the National Anthem.

The “Tennessee Whiskey” singer, known for his bluesy-rock version of country, has won 8 Grammys, 10 ACM awards, and 14 CMA awards. Yet some football fans didn’t recognize the name and left comments like, “Please someone tell me I’m not the only one who does not know any of these people,” “Who?who? and who?” and “This seems missable.”

But the NFL Instagram account was also flooded with excited country music fans who wrote, “Chris Stapleton’s national anthem will not be matched,” “Chris Stapleton is amazing, cant wait!” “Stapleton is actually fire,” and “Too many people sleeping on Chris Stapleton. Educate yourselves people.”

The Super Bowl airs on Fox on February 12. Kickoff is at 6:30 EST, but you’ll want to tune in early to make sure you don’t miss any of these performances.

“Bridgerton” Star Crowned Most Handsome Man in the World… According to Science

Actor Regé-Jean Page has been declared the most handsome man in the world, according to research conducted by cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Julian De Silva.

The “Bridgerton” star’s face was found to be 93.65% perfect in terms of the Golden Ratio, a concept that measures the symmetry of a person’s face and determines their apparent attractiveness. The Golden Ratio, numerically roughly 1.618, is a mathematical formula that has long been used to measure physical beauty.

Dr. De Silva used computer technology to calculate the proportions of Page’s face, stating: “These brand-new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful. And the technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.”

According to the data compiled by Dr. De Silva, other men who followed close behind Page include Chris Hemsworth with 93.53% and Michael B. Jordan with 93.46%.

Dr. De Silva went on to say that, “Regé won because of his classically beautiful face and gorgeous brown eyes. He had easily the highest score… His eye spacing and the positioning of his eyes also scored highly.” The doctor also noted that Page’s perfectly shaped lips scored highly, and the only mark he got that was slightly lower was for his nose width and length.

Page, who left the Netflix romance drama after its first season in 2021, is now considered a heavyweight in the acting world and is allegedly in the running to play the iconic role of James Bond. Despite his exit from the show, Page has given his stamp of approval for “Bridgerton” executive producer, Shonda Rhimes, to recast his role in Season 3 of the show.

In an interview with Variety, Page stated, “They’re free to do as they like. Shonda and I had a wonderful conversation at the end of Season 1. We were quite happy with how we stuck the landing on that one.”

He also expressed his gratitude for all the fan love he received for playing the commitment-phobic Simon, stating, “We did so well on that redemptive arc that people forget that Simon was kind of horrific. He was the best example of a Regency f–kboy that any of us had come across.”

Brother of Missing Actor ‘Has Said His Goodbyes’

The brother of missing actor, Jason Sands, has spoken out about the heart-wrenching situation, revealing that he has already said his goodbyes to his beloved brother. The 65-year-old actor disappeared on January 13th while on a hike in the Baldy Bowl area of the San Gabriel Mountains, north of Los Angeles, California. Despite the tireless efforts of Californian officials, search efforts have been hindered by deadly storms, making it difficult to locate the missing actor.

Nick Sands, who lives in Gargrave, North Yorkshire, has come to terms with the fact that his brother may not be found. He said, “I have come to terms with the fact he’s gone and for me that’s how I’ve dealt with it. I prefer that to thinking of my brother lying injured on the mountain side.” However, Sands’ three children and wife still hold out hope that he will be found.

Speaking on Tuesday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said, “Numerous ground and air search efforts have taken place. As of this time, Mr. Sands has not been found and no evidence of his current location has been discovered. The search will continue, weather and ground conditions permitting.”

Sands has had a successful career in the entertainment industry, appearing in dozens of films and TV shows. However, it was his lead role in the 1985 British romance ‘A Room With A View’ that brought him global fame. Nick Sands spoke fondly of his brother, saying, “Julian, bless him, all the time he has lived away, has been able to find his way back to see us and his mum, he was absolutely brilliant with Brenda who died six years ago.”

Julian Sands has previously spoken about his love of hiking and mountain climbing and Nick said he would always try to fit in some activity when visiting. He said, “He’s done the Pennine Way in completion. He just comes for one night, it’s a great effort, he comes up on the train, stays the night with me and will be on the train the following day, just for a beer and a curry.”

The Sands family, who were raised in the area around Skipton, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, are holding out hope for Julian’s safe return. However, as the search continues and the days pass, the reality of his absence becomes increasingly difficult to bear. The family, friends and fans of Julian Sands are praying for his safe return, and for closure for his loved ones.

Director Says Buckingham Palace Lied About Production

The director of the Harry & Meghan docuseries, Liz Garbus, has firmly stood by a claim made in the Netflix show and has accused Buckingham Palace of attempting to undermine the credibility of the series.

In the series, an on-screen statement is shown claiming that “Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series”. However, a senior royal source later denied this claim and stated that neither Buckingham Palace nor any members of the royal family had been approached about the series.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Liz Garbus responded to this denial, calling it an example of the “alleged palace mind games” that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had previously described in the show. Garbus stated, “For instance, Buckingham Palace said that we didn’t reach out for comment [on the docuseries] when we did.

They did that to discredit us and by discrediting us, they can discredit the content of the show. It was as if we were living through some of those moments that were a little bit like Alice Through the Looking Glass.”

Garbus went on to say that the team behind the docuseries had followed all standard protocols for reaching out for comment, including sending multiple requests for comment to Buckingham Palace and members of the Royal Family.

She argues that the palace’s denial is an attempt to undermine the credibility of the series, and the information it presents. Garbus believes that by discrediting the series, the palace is attempting to discredit the content of the show and the experiences shared by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Former Child Star Lance Kerwin Tragically Dies at 62

The world of entertainment has lost a shining star, as Lance Kerwin, the former child actor who rose to fame in the late 1970s as the lead in the highly popular and sometimes controversial NBC teen drama series James at 15, passed away on Tuesday in San Clemente, CA. He was just 62 years old. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

The news of his death was announced by his daughter Savanah in a heart-wrenching Facebook post, leaving fans and colleagues alike mourning the loss of a beloved actor and friend.

Throughout the 1970s, Kerwin was a busy child actor, starring in various productions and captivating audiences with his talent and charm. He also starred in the critically acclaimed 1979 TV miniseries Salem’s Lot, based on the novel by Stephen King, playing the central character of Mark Petrie, the young horror film buff-turned-vampire hunter. In the film’s most chilling and memorable scene, Kerwin’s character is visited by a schoolmate who has become a vampire and floats eerily outside Mark’s bedroom window.

Kerwin’s TV career began in the early- to mid-1970s with appearances on popular shows such as Little House on the Prairie, Emergency! and Wonder Woman. However, his breakthrough role came in 1977 with James at 15, the coming-of-age drama series that was an attempt by creator-writer Dan Wakefield to present a more realistic depiction of teenagers than was common at the time. The show made headlines in 1978 when, with the new title James at 16, Kerwin’s character lost his virginity with a Swedish exchange student.

Two years later, Kerwin co-starred in the TV movie The Boy Who Drank Too Much, starring Scott Baio as a teenage alcoholic.

Despite his success as a child actor, Kerwin continued to act throughout the mid-1990s, usually as a guest star on episodic TV. By the end of the decade, he had retired from acting to become a youth minister. He later moved to Hawaii to work for the U-Turn for Christ ministry. A 2021 GoFundMe page indicated Kerwin had fallen on hard times after suffering various health issues.

Lance Kerwin leaves behind a legacy of outstanding performances that will be remembered for years to come. He is survived by his children Savanah, Fox, Terah, Kailani, and Justus. Information on a planned after-life ceremony is expected in the coming weeks. May he rest in peace.

Sesame Street Creator Dies Leaving ‘Legacy Among Generations’

Lloyd Morrisett, the co-creator of the beloved children’s education TV series “Sesame Street,” which uses empathy and fuzzy monsters like Abby Cadabby, Elmo and Cookie Monster to charm and teach generations around the world, has died. He was 93.

Morrisett’s death was announced Tuesday by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit he helped establish under the name the Children’s Television Workshop. No cause of death was given.

In a statement, Sesame Workshop hailed Morrisett as a “wise, thoughtful, and above all kind leader” who was “constantly thinking about new ways” to educate.

Morrisett and Joan Ganz Cooney worked with Harvard University developmental psychologist Gerald Lesser to build the show’s unique approach to teaching that now reaches 120 million children. Legendary puppeteer Jim Henson supplied the critters.

“Sesame Street” is shown in more than 150 countries, has won 216 Emmys, 11 Grammys and in 2019 received the Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime artistic achievement, the first time a television program got the award (Big Bird strolled down the aisle and basically sat in Tom Hanks’ lap).

Born in 1929 in Oklahoma City, Morrisett initially trained to be a teacher with a background in psychology. He became an experimental educator, looking for new ways to educate children from less advantaged backgrounds. Morrisett received his bachelor’s at Oberlin College, did graduate work in psychology at UCLA, and earned his doctorate in experimental psychology at Yale University. He was an Oberlin trustee for many years and was chair of the board from 1975 to 1981.

The germ of “Sesame Street” was sown over a dinner party in 1966, where he met Cooney.

“I said, ‘Joan, do you think television could be used to teach young children?’ Her answer was, ‘I don’t know, but I’d like to talk about it,’” he recalled to The Guardian in 2004.

The first episode of “Sesame Street” — sponsored by the letters W, S and E and the numbers 2 and 3 — aired in the fall of 1969. It was a turbulent time in America, rocked by the Vietnam War and raw from the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. the year before.

Children’s programming at the time was made up of shows like “Captain Kangaroo,” “Romper Room” and the often violent cartoon skirmishes between “Tom & Jerry.” “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” was mostly teaching social skills.

“Sesame Street” was designed by education professionals and child psychologists with one goal: to help low-income and minority students aged 2-5 overcome some of the deficiencies they had when entering school. Social scientists had long noted kids who were white and from higher-income families were often better prepared.

The show was set on an urban street with a multicultural cast. Diversity and inclusion were baked into the show. Monsters, humans and animals all lived together peacefully.

It became the first children’s program to feature someone with Down syndrome. It’s had puppets with HIV and in foster care, invited children in wheelchairs, dealt with topics like jailed parents, homelessness, women’s rights, military families and even girls singing about loving their hair.

It introduced the bilingual Rosita — the first Latina Muppet — in 1991. Julia, a 4-year-old Muppet with autism, came in 2017 and the show has since offered help for kids whose parents are dealing with addiction and recovery, and children suffering as a result of the Syrian civil war. To help kids after 9/11, Elmo was left traumatized by a fire at Hooper’s store but was soothingly told that firefighters were there to help.

The company said upon the news of his death that Lloyd left “an outsized and indelible legacy among generations of children the world over, with ‘Sesame Street’ only the most visible tribute to a lifetime of good work and lasting impact.”

Pamela Anderson Says Sylvester Stallone Offered Her a Condo and Porsche to be His “No. 1 Girl”

Pamela Anderson is peeling back the curtains on her thinly veiled love life to allege that “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone once made her an offer she could refuse.

“He offered me a condo and a Porsche to be his ‘No. 1 girl,’” says the 55-year-old fox in her new Netflix documentary, “Pamela, a Love Story,” out Jan. 31. “And I was like, ‘Does that mean there’s No. 2? Uh-uh,’” she laughs. 

But, Stallone, 76, argued that his proposal was as good as Tinseltown gold, according to Anderson. 

“He goes, ‘That’s the best offer you’re gonna get, honey. You’re in Hollywood now,’” she claims, adding that she spurned the bid without hesitation. 

“I wanted to be in love,” says Anderson. “I didn’t want anything less than that.”

Representatives for Stallone, however, tell The Post that the saucy solicitation never happened.

“The statement from Pamela Anderson attributed to my client is false and fabricated,” said a spokesperson for the Oscar-nominated actor. “Mr. Stallone confirms that he never made any portion of that statement.”

Anderson went on to find love with a slew of other bigwigs.

In her much-ballyhooed doc, the bosomy Playboy beauty shares the lesser-known yet steamy details of her past romances with ‘90s A-listers such as Scott Baio, 62, “Superman” lead Dean Cain, 56, her “Baywatch” co-star Kelly Slater, 50, and “The Real World: New York” contestant Eric Nies, 51. 

Most notably, Anderson, who’s been married five times to four different men, talks about her failed marriages to Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, 60, and professional poker player Rick Salomon, 54.

Elsewhere in the film, she discusses being molested and raped, her career as an actress and Playboy pinup and her disdain for Hulu’s Emmy-nominated “Pam & Tommy” series, which detailed the leaking of her and Lee’s 1995 honeymoon sex tape.
