Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley had a Bedazzled reunion at a special screening of his upcoming film The Whale.
On Monday, Fraser, 53, and Hurley, 57, who co-starred alongside Fraser as the devil in the 2000 comedy, reunited at a London screening of Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale at The Ham Yard Hotel.
The actors posed for a photo after the screening, which Hurley also attended with her 20-year-old actor/model son Damian.
The special screening of The Whale was also attended by Stranger Things actor Joseph Quinn, The Invisible Man‘s Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Micheal Ward, star of Sam Mendes’ upcoming film Empire of Light, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Fraser and Hurley’s Bedazzled, directed by Harold Ramis, came as a remake of a 1967 film of the same name. The film features Fraser as a man who signs his soul over to the devil (Hurley) in exchange for seven wishes.

“Brendan Fraser is amazing in the film,” he said last month on Late Night with Seth Meyers, having attended the movie’s screening in Venice. “This is his big comeback. The movie finishes, he gets an eight-minute standing ovation. He’s crying. You can feel him being like ‘I’m back, baby. It’s the Oscars. Here we come.’ ”
Fraser has already collected numerous accolades for the role, including the Tribute Award at last month’s Toronto International Film Festival gala.
