She was the hot topic both on and off the net yesterday and now Renee Zellweger has hit back at claims she no longer looks like herself

Talking to People Magazine, the Bridget Jones’s Diary star called the whole debate over her face “silly” and that “it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn’t exist won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.”

So, for those of you who are claiming something’s changed? Well Renee wholeheartedly agrees.

“I’m glad folks think I look different!” she told People, “I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows.”


Having shot to fame in movies like Jerry Maguire and cementing fans favour in Bridget Jones, the star has since taken a step back from the spotlight.

After an almost five year hiatus, she will appear in her first movie since 2010 when The Whole Truth hits cinemas next year.

Now 45, Zellweger explained that “people don’t know me in my 40s”.

“Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I’m happy.”


“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy.

“For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself.

“I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
