Brendan Fraser: We need to stop bias against those with obesity

Brendan Fraser is riding the award season wave with his latest movie The Whale.

The actor credits his 'guide', director Darren Aronosfky, with giving him his first leading role in years.

He has been nominated for a Bafta for the role which has already earned him a Critics Choice award.

The Whale tells the story of a morbidly obese recluse trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter.
