Everyone’s been getting Brendan Fraser’s name wrong his whole career.

Fraser revealed how to actually pronounce his last name during a video interview with pal and former costar Adam Sandler for Variety magazine’s “Actors on Actors” series.

“When I first met Brendan Fraser… that’s your full name right? Brendan Fraser?” Sandler asked “The Mummy” star.

Fraser then took the opportunity to correct Sandler. The last name actually rhymes with “razor.”

“You shave with a razor,” Fraser said as he mimicked shaving his face, poking fun at Sandler who was sporting a beard. “You should try standing closer to it,” he continued joking at “The Waterboy” star’s expense.

“I didn’t even know this happened. This is two days of not shaving,” Sandler joked.

Fraser and Sandler starred together in the 1994 comedy “Airheads.”

This year both actors gained rave reviews for lead performances. Fraser in “The Whale” and Sandler in “Hustle.”

“The Whale” is in theaters now and “Hustle” is available to stream via Netflix.
