Early Life 

Brendan Fraser Early life History

On December 3, 1968, Brendan Fraser was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, as Brendan James Fraser. Growing up in Washington, California, Ontario, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, he was surrounded by his three elder brothers, Kevin, Regan, and Sean, as well as his Canadian parents, Carol, a sales counselor, and Peter, a foreign service officer. Brendan graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle in 1990 after attending a private boarding school, Upper Canada College in Toronto. While traveling to Southern Methodist University in Dallas to study acting, he made a stop in Hollywood, where he was cast as a sailor in the 1991 movie “Dogfight,” and he chose to remain.


In a 1998 reenactment of “America’s Most Wanted,” Fraser made his television debut as a friend of a murder victim. 1992 saw him land his first major role, costarring with Pauly Shore and Sean Astin in “Encino Man.” He also made an appearance in the sports drama “School Ties” in the same year. After reuniting with Pauly Shore for “With Honors,” “The Scout,” “Airheads,” and “In the Army Now” in 1994, Brendan played the lead in “George of the Jungle,” which brought in a staggering $174.4 million at the box office in 1997. He released “Gods and Monsters” in 1998, “Blast from the Past,” “Dudley Do-Right,” and the $416.4 million box office hit “The Mummy” in 1999, all coming after “George of the Jungle.”correspondingly.

After Marriage Life

Brendan married actress Afton Smith on September 27, 1998. They met at a BBQ at Winona Ryder‘s house on the fourth of July in 1993. Brendan and Afton had three sons together, Griffin (born in 2002), Holden (born in 2004), and Leland (born in 2006). While they were together the family lived in a mansion in Beverly Hills. When they sold that mansion in April 2007 for $3 million, Brendan’s publicist confirmed that the couple was separating. Brendan and Afton officially divorced in 2008.

Alimony Saga

The Alimony Saga of  Brendan Fraser :

Unfortunately for Brendan, their split happened during what turned out to be the height of his success earning movies. Brendan received his biggest single-film acting salary of $14 million from the second “Mummy” movie, the same year they got divorced. However, he did go on to make $10 million from the movie “Furry Vengeance” one year following the divorce’s settlement. As Afton claimed he was first offered $7.5 million for the role while they were discussing a divorce settlement, Brendan’s Furry Vengeance salary actually played a role in a later alimony dispute with her. He was paid the sum in August 2009.

As per their divorce agreement, Brendan had to give Afton a settlement of slightly less than $8.7 million, which was nearly half of his pre-divorce net worth. He also consented to directly pay Afton $75,000 a month, which would be divided into $50,000 in alimony and $25,000 in child support. Brendan essentially needed to make about $2 million per year before taxes in order to cover these two expenses alone, which totaled $900,000. Ten years, or until 2019 (or until Afton remarried, which she did not), would the alimony be paid. Child support would continue (pro-rated) until the age of eighteen for each child.

As we previously stated, Brendan’s income peaked in 2008. Over the following years, Fraser’s career cooled off significantly, and in March 2013, he filed a court petition to have his alimony payments lowered.

By 2013, Brendan was actually losing $87,000 a month due to mortgages, other expenses, and alimony since he was no longer receiving the mega-million-dollar paychecks he had several years prior to the arrangement being made, according to his filings. Moreover, Brendan claimed that his alimony could only be reduced if his yearly income fell below $3 million, which was not permitted under the terms of the divorce. Brendan’s business manager included the following sums in the filing as his total yearly gross income and earnings:

2010: $1,805,935 in net income and $2,042,778 in gross income
2011: $964,485 in net income and $1,090,370 in gross income
2012: gross income of $1,114,829 (final net income not yet calculated)

Brendan stated in the filing that he possessed assets valued at $25 million and that his average monthly income was $205,704. Additionally, he claimed that his monthly income from investments was about $26,000 and that he was required to pay $113,000 in “professional expenses” (agents, managers, and lawyers). After these expenses, Brendan’s monthly income before expenses was about $118,000. Fraser’s monthly outlays consisted of:

$50,000 for maintenance
$34,000 in income taxes
$25k in child support
Other costs (real estate taxes, mortgages, etc.) totaling $25,000.
Brendan stated that after deducting all costs, his monthly income was $87,000 less than his monthly expenses.

It’s unclear if a subsequent alimony modification was approved. Brendan’s allegations were refuted by Afton’s attorneys, who noted that the actor made $10 million for “Furry Vengeance” in 2009 and was still able to work and make a good living. During this same time, he was also able to spend just over $4 million to buy and equip a new house for himself. In any case, the alimony payments were probably stopped in 2019. Child support payments will probably be made in part on a pro rata basis until his youngest son turns 18 in 2024.

Won The Award

Fraser’s performance at the Seattle International Film Festival earned him a Golden Space Needle Award.

Fraser’s performance in “Still Breathing” earned him a Golden Space Needle Award at the 1997 Seattle International Film Festival. For “Scrubs,” he won the 2004 Online Film & Television Association Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. In 2008, he was honored with the ShoWest Award for Distinguished Decade of Achievement in Film. Along with these accolades, Brendan co-won a Gold Derby Award, a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, a Hollywood Film Festival Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award with his “Crash” co-stars. In 2006, Fraser was inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame. As a result of his performance in “The Whale,” Brendan was the first Canadian to win the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2023.

Investing Real Estate

Afton and Brendan paid $675,000 for a 3,948-square-foot house in Beverly Hills in 1996. It was sold for $3 million in 2007, just before they announced their separation. The video tour of their previous marital residence, which was put up for sale in October 2021 for $8.75 million, can be found below:
