Russell Brand has thoughts on Renee Zellweger’s new face

Renee Zellweger disappeared for a couple years and when she came back, she had a brand new face. Crazy, right? She says it’s just because she’s living a healthier lifestyle now, and while most people with a working brain know that’s total bullshit, Russell Brand doesn’t care either way – he thinks it’s all down to feminism and everyone needs to leave her alone.

Say what you will about Russell’s approach, but I love him, and he makes a valid point. Duh, Renee Zellweger is in the public eye and under a ridiculous amount of pressure to stay youthful and perfect and blah blah blah (as you remember, my issue was more with the lying about it than the doing it, but that’s neither here nor there) – and pointing out all the INSANE amount of coverage this has received really brings it home just how nuts we are as a society, myself included.

However, side note: do you think Russell is back on the drugs? I know he’s generally pretty excitable, but he seems slightly manic in this video…

Renee Zellweger has a new face and people are bugging out

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.

Colin Firth Swears He Didn’t Cry Over His ‘Bridget Jones’ Fate

I’ll admit something that may be akin to blasphemy, and that’s that, uh… I’ve never actually watched Bridget Jones all the way through. Either of them. Nor have I read the book – though I did own the first one at some point (not sure if I still do). Well, Helen Fielding did a third book in the series called Mad About the Boy and in it (SPOILER), Mark Darcy was dead. Oh, snap!

Apparently, some people were saying that when Colin Firth found out about this, he sobbed his eyes out, but that’s a load of bologna according to the man himself. He did say, however,

From Sky News:

“I’ve heard I that nearly wept or that I had to process it,” he said. “I’m afraid, I tend to find the demise of a fictional character doesn’t run very deep.”

Fielding has hinted that she could bring Darcy back from the dead, and if so, Firth would gladly step back into the role.

“I’m always happy to be reincarnated, rejuvenated – a pair of electrodes – I would happily walk,” he said.

Ah, well that’s alright. Helen wants there to be a third movie, by the way, but there might be a bit of a wait for that – especially considering that Renee Zellweger is a shadow of her former self in every possible way.

Love It or Leave It: Renee Zellweger for Tommy Hilfiger

So, Renee Zellweger decided to take a break from movies and dating and stuff (I’m STILL fucking waiting for the third installation of Bridget Jones, bitch!) to strut her lemon-sucking face for Tommy Hilfiger and his latest ad campaign.

I haven’t really been a fan of Hilfiger’s designs since 7th grade or so, as I think they’re kind of Kennedys-on-Holiday-bland, but hey. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do. If Renee feels that stumping for Hilfiger will get her into her ex’s mom’s pants, then so be it.

Blind Item: What Actress Is Hooking Up With Her Ex’s Mom?

Holy shit. Holy shit, holy shit, holy shit.

Today’s blind item comes from, and if there’s any truth behind it, this is some of the most crazy-ass Hollywood shit I have ever heard in my life.


Which A-list film actress, who recently split from her handsome actor-beau, is rumored to be having a lesbian affair with a much older woman? The kicker is that the alleged woman is the ex’s mother.

If you’re doubting even for a second that this is about Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper, than you probably don’t read here very often. As I’ve been pointing out for years now, Bradley Cooper is almost definitely gay and Renée is probably an undercover lesbian herself. What makes this item so scandalous and saucy is not just that Renée’s been running around with her man-beard’s mom, but that we have photos of her and Mrs. Cooper running around like BFFs that we published last year.

At the time I pointed out that the two ladies becoming close was a sign of how seriously Renée and Bradley were taking each other, but in retrospect, these ladies could have TOTALLY been doin’ it. I guess my mind’s just not wired to assume that kind of thing. Like, why would I ever assume that Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper’s mom are hooking up?

Anyway, I’m willing to take any other guesses for this item in the comments, but I’m pretty sure we’ve nailed this one down.

Bradley Cooper and Renée Zellweger Quit the Charade

Dude, this is almost like, ceremonial for me. The first weekend that I ever worked at EvilBeet I wrote up a post being like, “Isn’t it weird that Bradley Cooper and Renée Zellweger are dating because he’s clearly a homosexual?”

It took them like, two years, but the couple, as of Friday, at least, are officially dunzo. To be fair, the two never announced or even confirmed that they were a couple, but they lived together, made a movie together and were often seen out together. It was either a faked relationship to keep their names in the papers, or like, Will & Grace up in there.

What do you say about this sorta thing? I’m sure neither of them are sad that their non-existent relationship is over and that there was some sort of weird blow out between the two when Bradley and his boyfriend walked in on Renée and her boyfriend and they couldn’t remember which one of them agreed to let the other use the bed that night.

Things happen, you know?

Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper are Still Apparently Dating

I like Renee Zellweger a lot. Maybe it has a lot to do with Bridget Jones’ Diary or something, but she just appeals to me. However? Am I the only one who, as of late, gets a distinct Jennifer Aniston vibe from her? And by ‘Jennifer Aniston vibe,’ I mean a kind of clingy, needy, ‘Please-oh-please current boyfriend won’t you marry me’ type of vibe? Because I do. Really. And it hurts me to say that, because I genuinely do like Renee.

Long ago there were Zellweger-Cooper marriage rumors and photos of Renee and Brad’s mom floating around like wildfire. There’s no better way to try and force a man to marry you than to put a bug in his mom’s ear over it, am I right, Jen? But as of yet, it clearly hasn’t happened.


However, Renee hasn’t given up Bradley and Renee are still together, and they’re still appearing in public together once in awhile. So I guess that speaks volumes. And what else speaks volumes? Bradley’s oh-so-obvious negative body language and Renee’s unknowing shit-eating grin. Crash and burn, ladies and gents.

Crash. And burn.
