Only a couple of years ago, Renee Zellweger looked like a completely different person. In fact, she looked like a person who had been untouched by plastic surgery of any kind. Cut to October 2014, when she hit up Elle’s Women In Fashion Awards ceremony with a brand new face… and people really, really don’t know what to do with themselves about it.
Renee is 44 now, and getting older in Hollywood is hard. She’s certainly not the first person to go under the knife in an effort to preserve her youth (and therefore her ability to book jobs) in the industry. However, I think the reaction here has more to do with just how extreme this is. I honestly would not recognize her if I wasn’t told who she was. She has literally got a brand new face.
For those who may have forgotten, this is how she used to look:
As for Renee, she says she hasn’t had any surgery at all, and that she’s just living a healthier, happier lifestyle (via People):
“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,” Zellweger, 45, says of the attention she received after an appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills on Monday.
Calling the conversation about her appearance “silly,” she says she is choosing to address it because “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.”
LOL, okay, girl. I have no issue with plastic surgery whatsoever. It’s not my thing, but if it’s yours, do you. But at least don’t lie about it.
