There’s no plastic surgery involved and Renee Zellweger doesn’t have an exotic tale to tell. The “Bridget Jones Diary” star simply states that people don’t know her in her forties, so if she looks unrecognizable it is only because she is older. She’s been off of the big screen for a while, so could it be that time is the only culprit to change Zellweger’s look to the point that she couldn’t even pass as her own sister?
The 45-year-old is actually quite happy that folks think she looks different today. She is living a different life than she ever has before, which is more “fulfilling” and she finds it makes her “happy,” according to MSN News on Oct. 22.
Her last film was “My Own Love Song” back in 2010, so throwing in a year while filming, she hasn’t been seen in five years by the masses, but is she sporting five-years-worth of change to her looks? She looks great, but she just doesn’t look anything at all like the Renee Zellweger of yesteryear.
She has never been one to seek the limelight and actually goes out of her way to avoid it, so maybe by not seeing her in pictures in the last five years, she’s naturally aged into a 45-year-old behind the scenes. She denies having any plastic surgery, everything you see has sprung up naturally, claims Zellwegger.
She is probably best known for her role in 2001 “Bridget Jones Diary” and “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.” She had to gain weight for that role, so maybe that is the way people are used to seeing Renee and once she’s dropped the weight, she’s become unrecognizable.
She does have a distinctive voice and some very distinctive expressions in her face, so maybe once hearing her talk and seeing her in action it will fall into place. You will have that chance as Renee is starring in “The Whole Truth” her first new movie in a while, according to UPI News today.
Her friends tell her that she looks peaceful and she can’t understand what all the hoopla is about her looks today. She said she’s staying home with her long-time love, Doyle Bramhall II, 45, and enjoying a peaceful life these days.
Before she was running on nerves and “made bad choices on how to conceal the exhaustion.” She had enough of feeling depleted and was very aware of the chaos surrounding her then one day decided to do things differently.
“I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself.” She laughs and says, “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?”
