Brendan Fraser was spotted on a beach in Barbados with his children on Wednesday.

The 49-year-old actor – best known for looking buffed in 1997’s George Of The Jungle and for starring alongside Rachel Weisz in The Mummy franchise – looked comfortable in his black Nike shirt and shorts.

This sighting comes after the Hollywood vet revealed to GQ magazine that he ruined his body from doing too many stunts for his films causing him to have multiple operations. He also claimed that he experienced sexual harassment.

The actor, who is now on the FX show Trust, appeared to be snorkeling with kids.

He has three children: Griffin, aged 15, Holden, aged 13, and Leland, aged 11, with ex-wife Afton Smith.

They were seen on the beach as well as a raft before plunging into the water.

Brendan looked to be in good spirits as he took a break from the spotlight.

Earlier this month he broke his silence on his depression that has crippled him for decades.

His divorce from Afton not doubt took a toll. But so did his movies, where he was required to pull off some fairly dangerous stunts.  

‘By the time I did the third Mummy picture in China [in 2008], I was put together with tape and ice…’cause they’re small and light and they can fit under your clothes. I was building an exoskeleton for myself daily,’ he told the men’s monthly magazine.

Eventually he needed multiple surgeries.

He needed a lumbar laminectomy, a surgery that removes the back portion of a vertebra in the lower back, to create more room within the spinal canal.

However, it didn’t take and it had to be done again a year later. He underwent a partial knee replacement, more back surgery involving bolting various compressed spinal pads together and even surgery to repair his vocal cords. 

Fraser said he was in and out of hospitals for almost seven years.

As far as his sexual assault, he said it was made by an influential Hollywood figure. 

In 2003 by the then-president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk.

The alleged incident occurred in 2003 at the Beverly Hills Hotel while they were having lunch.

‘His left hand reaches around, grabs my a** cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint,’ he told the publication.

‘And he starts moving it around. I felt ill. I felt like a little kid. I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry.’  

After immediately leaving the luncheon, Fraser told his wife of the interaction but otherwise remained silent for fear of embarrassment and career damage.

While he did not go public, about the incident he eventually did report it to the HFPA, but their response was clear: Fraser was rarely invited back to the Globes after 2003.

In the article, Berk says he wrote a letter to Fraser about the incident but ‘admitted no wrongdoing.’  

Fraser said that he became depressed and he started telling himself he deserved what had happened to him.

‘I was blaming myself and I was miserable – because I was saying: “This is nothing; this guy reached around and he copped a feel”. That summer wore on – and I can’t remember what I went on to work on next.’ 

‘Maybe I am over-reacting in terms of what the instance was,’ he says about the Berk allegation. ‘I just know what my truth is.’

Trust debuts on March 23 on FX.
