Ode On Demand talks to Renee as part of her press tour for Bridget Jones’s Baby.
Renee Zellweger has been telling us what it’s like being back as Bridget Jones, her insecurities and the constant focus on appearance.
Renee gave a beautiful interview for the new issue of the Hollywood Reporter.
The ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ star, and the subject of heavy (some say sexist) scrutiny, is guarded about almost everything — except her writing, support of Hillary Clinton and society’s inequality: “Why are we [still] talking about how women look?”
“My main goal,” says Renee Zellweger, curled up in an oversized club chair in a private VIP room off the lobby of Santa Monica’s Hotel Casa del Mar, “is to avoid any negativity that might enter my consciousness. If I’m not aware of it, then it’s not real. It doesn’t exist.”
For the past six years, Zellweger has been avoiding it like crazy. She’s taken a self-imposed hiatus from acting, enjoying the Zen-like peacefulness of living “under the radar,” as she calls it. She spent some downtime at her 40-acre farm in Connecticut, chilled out in her beach house in the Hamptons, then holed up for a while at her home in Santa Barbara. She enrolled in screenwriting courses at UCLA, even co-wrote a TV pilot with one of her professors that she pitched to Lifetime (it passed) and pursued a range of other soul-nourishing endeavors.
“I wanted to grow,” she explains. “If you don’t explore other things, you wake up 20 years later and you’re still that same person who only learns anything when she goes out to research a character. You need to grow!”

This week Renee was in London where she participated in a press conference for her new film Bridget Jones’s Baby. I have added images to the gallery.
I am so excited to share Renée Zellweger Online with you. This site is a small dedication to a talented actress … I have been following Renée’s career since the release of her film Jerry Maguire and have loved watching her grow as an actress.
Since Renée has started her press already for Bridget Jones’s Baby I decided to launch the site with the bare minimum so I can keep you up to date on all the news and press for her new film. The site is just a fraction of what I hope for it to be and I plan to continue adding content on a daily basis. Stay tuned!
A giant thank you to my friend Claudia at Never Enough Design for our beautiful theme!
