Renee Zellweger's face has changed a tremendous amount over the years. But the different look has nothing to do with plastic surgery. It's that she's happier!
After seeing photos from the Bridget Jones’s Baby premieres, fans have taken to social media once again to discuss Zellweger's supposed face changes. Despite repeated explanations that she never went under the knife, fans are convinced the blond beauty had work done.
Fans first pointed out that Zellweger’s face – especially her eyes – changed at the ELLE event in 2014. She quickly faced rumors she got plastic surgery, Botox or fillers. But Zellweger immediately put out a statement explaining that she looked different simply because she was happier, healthier, and older. “But I am different. I’m happy,” she said.
“I was really tired and what I hadn’t learned at that point was how to take care of myself,” she said. She added that “gratitude” became “depleted in my life.” She felt “a responsibility” to not let people down. So she kept working and got so exhausted. She had no children or a relationship so she felt like she had to just keep going “I had no time to develop that in my life,” she explained.
Zellweger also took “bad advice” on hiding her exhaustion. Any suggestion felt like “kindness” to her so she took it.
Zellweger wrote a powerful op-ed in the Huffington Post this summer slamming the way the media scrutinizes women for their looks. “I’m writing because to be fair to myself, I must make some claim on the truth of my life, and because witnessing the transmutation of tabloid fodder from speculation to truth is deeply troubling,” she wrote.
Her relationship with Doyle Bramhall II also changed her for the better. She looks different, but for a positive reason.
So will Zellweger and Bramhall get engaged soon? While they haven’t talked about any wedding plans, Zellweger did say, “There is a familiarity between us, that sense you have when you’re with someone and you know you are home.”
Either way, Zellweger is much happier now that she's made these changes. "When you have nothing to go home to, no one to celebrate these things with, it's time to maybe reassess and figure out what you're not doing right," she told People. "I had made so many promises to myself about things that I wanted to explore, things I wanted to try, and how I would like to grow as a person that I had made no time for. And I thought, 'That's enough.'"
