- Elizabeth Hurley revealed in a new interview that she’d “love” to work with Brendan Fraser again.
- They starred in 2000’s “Bedazzled” and recently reunited at a screening of Fraser’s new film.
- “Brendan is one of the nicest human beings you could ever meet,” said Hurley.
Elizabeth Hurley gushed over her “Bedazzled” costar Brendan Fraser in a new interview with People and said she’d “love” to work with him again.
“He was one of my favorite costars,” Hurley said of Fraser, who’s currently an awards season favorite for his role in Darren Aronofsky’s new drama “The Whale.”
The “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” star portrayed the Devil in the 2000 comedy, while Fraser played Elliot, her unwitting victim.
“Brendan and I got on so fantastically when we shot ‘Bedazzled’ and then didn’t speak,” Hurley revealed to People. “We didn’t speak at all until I got invited to this screening of ‘The Whale.’ And I was so excited that I’d see Brendan again.”
The model also praised Fraser’s work in Aronofsky’s new film and said she was just “so bowled over by how fabulous” Fraser was in his role.
“Brendan is one of the nicest human beings you could ever meet and I’m just so happy for him that he’s just had this opportunity to shine again,” Hurley told People, adding: “I love him.”
In his latest role, Fraser plays Charlie, an ailing recluse trying to make amends with his daughter before his death.
The veteran actor’s comeback performance has been generating plenty of buzz and will likely earn him invites to numerous awards shows over the next few months. However, Fraser recently revealed that he has no plans to attend the Golden Globes, due to his “history” with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the Globes each year.
