Renee Zellweger stunned everybody when she made a rare public appearance on Monday evening and appeared to debut a totally new face.
Totally unrecognisable, Renee’s look caused an understandable stir on the internet as everybody wonder if it was really the Bridget Jones’ star under there, or just a God-awful Renee Zellweger impersonator.
Well, as Renee has now spoken out about her drastic transformation, we can confirm that it is indeed her, but that doesn’t make it any easier to believe.
The 45-year-old actress told People magazine: “I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows.”
The private star hasn’t featured in a film for four years, and tends to shy away from glitzy showbiz affairs in a bid for a quieter life, so why did she chose to speak out now?
“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,” Renee explained.
Fair enough we suppose.
And the actress adamantly denied that her much larger looking eyes and shiny-Botox skin were a result of plastic surgery, instead trying to convince us that it was all a side effect of living a much healthier lifestyle.
“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am Healthy,” Renee shared, “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.
“Rather than stopping to recalibrate, 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.”
Although the biggest difference does seem to be in Renee’s eyes, her dramatic weight change is probably another contributor to her whole new look.
Famed for being notoriously thin, or 20 pounds overweight when she was playing our fave single lady, Bridget Jones, we all just kind of assumed that her tiny frame was perfectly natural.
However, now she is at a much healthier, middle-ground weight, perhaps the bony and svelte look that she used to go for wasn’t so natural after all.
Either way, we are glad that Renee is happier and healthier now, we just wish that she would be honest with us and tell us what she has had done to totally change her entire appearance.
To be honest, it’s kind of impressive.
