Renee Zellweger famously gained a lot of weight — twice — to play Bridget Jones in the film adaptation of the two hit books by Helen Fielding. And I think we can all agree that Ms. Zellweger was never more likeable than when she played Ms. Jones.
Ms. Fielding has yet another Jones sequel out, Mad About The Boy. And there’s a plot twist that’s freaking Bridget Jones fans out. SPOILER ALERT (from BBC News) SPOILERS!!!!! “Bridget reveals that Darcy – her husband and father to her two children, died five years earlier.” Darcy was played by Colin Firth in the films. What a huge downer. It’s like the sad twist at the end of Roseanne.
Meanwhile, the rumored third Bridget Jones film still hasn’t happened. Would you see it if it ever came out? Or is it a bit late at this point?
