Brendan Fraser is trending for simply being awesome: "Sweet man who deserves the world"

Brendan Fraser is trending for simply being awesome: "Sweet man who deserves the world"

Fraser has been absent from action after being at the very top of Hollywood. He's now making a comeback.

Trigger warning: This story contains themes of sexual assault that some readers may find distressing

Brendan Fraser had been missing from the spotlight for a while after pretty much being the face of Hollywood for a good few years. Fraser delivered some blockbusters in The Mummy franchise, George of the Jungle, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, and the Oscar-winning film Crash. Fraser revealed he had taken a step back from showbiz after an incident of sexual harassment. Fraser accused Philip Berk, a former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, of physically groping him. Berk admitted to "pinching" Fraser in the buttocks after an event, but Fraser said it was more violent than what Berk had described. "I felt ill. I felt like a little kid," he told GQ. "I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry."

Earlier this week the actor was trending on Twitter, and apparently for no reason. He didn't have a movie coming out, there was no scandal that broke, he wasn't doing a campaign either. Out of the blue, Twitter users wanted to shower their love for the actor so many of us grew up watching. The tweets were wholesome and we hope Fraser got to read some of them. Here are some of the best we came across:
