Renee Zellweger was spotted out without makeup after she made her buzzed about appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards event. The actress was unrecognizable as she walked around Mississippi. The Bridget Jones actress is in town filming a movie called, Some Kind of Different As Me.
The DailyMail reportedly questioned the actress about her altered appearance. Renee didn’t look like a glamorous Hollywood star as she wore her hair in a messy bun. Renee replied.“Oh my God, you’re going to ask me that question! Can you excuse me please? I have better things to do and I’m sure you do too.” She then reportedly climbed into her car and politely said, “I’d just like to have my day to myself if you don’t mind.”
The Academy Award winning actress has been responding to the public backlash that she underwent plastic surgery to change her face. Renee told People magazine. “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 kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
The actress has still not confirmed that she has undergone cosmetic surgery.
Buzzfeed has commented on the controversy and pointed out that there appears to be double standard about plastic surgery.
“When Renée Zellweger walked the red carpet at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards last week with a face that many deemed “unrecognizable,” the reaction from the court of public opinion was swift, relentless, and all-too-expected: What had she done to herself? And why? Her crime appeared to be plastic surgery, and many were quick to judge her for it. But what happened in the hours following was something remarkable and rare: The internet declared a mistrial. Numerous news outlets, including this one, rushed to Zellweger’s defense, and the mirror that had been thrust so closely to her face swiveled around to reflect our own ugliness — namely, the impossible standards of beauty and youth to which we hold female celebrities, and the backlash said celebrities face when they go behind the back of Mother Nature to achieve them.”
Renee is rumored to be making a return to her role in sequel to Bridget Jones Diary.
