Brendan, star of the new film Extraordinary Measures , tells HollywoodLife.com his three little boys changed his life.

We caught up with Brendan Fraser at an NYC screening of his new film Extraordinary Measures Jan. 21 hosted by The Cinema Society, and he couldn’t stop gushing about his family. Brendan, plays John Crowley in the tear jerker – a father whose two youngest kids suffer from a debilitating genetic disease called Pompe. We wanted to know what he considered to be the most ‘extraordinary’ thing he’s done in his life, “the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever done was to have children.” Brendan plays a very devoted father and husband  to Keri Russell , his onscreen wife. In real life he is the proud father of three little boys, Griffin, 7, Holden, 5, and Leland, 3.

Brenden became very close with the Crowley family — the actual subjects of the film, and especially became with their daughter Megan., who is afflicted with Pompe. “Megan is internet savvy! I actually found out the release date of the movie through her,” confessed Brendan. “No one would tell me when the movie was coming out — everyone was tight -lipped about it and she was the one who told me!”

Several other celebs came out in support of the film including Gerard Butler, Adrien Brody, Tony Bennett, Brooke Shields, Jay Sean, and Charlotte Ronson. After seeing the film, the A-list group headed downtown to the Bowery Hotel to party.– Chloe Melas
