On Renee Zellweger's Face

When Jerry Maguire fell in love with her, so did I.  Renée Zellweger had that special something that makes an actress a movie star.  I loved her as the killer babe in Chicago, a musical that brought the talented screen star one of her three Oscar nominations.
Just like Roxie Hart, her infamous Chicago character, she made headlines.  Yesterday, folks on Twitter and Facebook were talking about her so much that she made Ebola seem like rival Velma Kelly in Chicago.  Renée topped the disease in popularity the way Roxie topped fellow jailbird, Velma, with her crime and courtroom trial hijinks.

We haven't heard a lot about Renée Zellweger in a couple of years, but yesterday she was a media sensation.
OK.  She does look different.  And still good.  Just like Elizabeth Taylor said on Turner Classic Movies about actor Montgomery Clift after he survived serious auto accident injuries, the face was still beautiful -- just some its delicacy was gone.  That's my opinion about Renée.  Also, whatever Ms. Zellweger decided to do to herself is her business.
This blog post is about the story itself.  Not about her face.  The story hit yesterday.  Newspaper, TV programs and social media were abuzz with Renée's new look.  She was a hot topic today on ABC's The View.

Had this all been planned for weeks in advance with the actress' publicity team?  Here's why I ask:  The story broke yesterday morning.  Last night on ABC's new sitcom, Selfie, these two characters had a comedy moment discussing that Renée Zellweger doesn't look recognizable anymore in her current photographs.
That network sitcom episode was not shot yesterday morning and then aired last night.  It was taped well over a week ago.  We heard that gag in the show the same day the Zellweger "new face" story broke.  That could not have been a coincidence.  How would the writers have known about Renée's new appearance if the story just broke yesterday morning?  I think there may have been insider info from a publicity team.  If that timely gag was in an ABC sitcom episode that aired last night, I wonder if Renée Zellweger will grant her first "new face" interview to an ABC news program.  Just a hunch from this former entertainment news reporter.  When I watched Selfie, I got a feeing that Zellweger's "new face revelation" was more a coordinated press event than a breaking news story.

What do you think?  Leave me some comments and let me know what you think.  By the way, you look fabulous.


  1. Why, thank you, Bobby - so do you!

    I think I am getting sucked in to Selfie. I appreciate the general social (media) commentary and I am surprised that I am really starting to like Henry and the chemistry between him and Eliza. (As opposed to Marry Me, which is hitting me as a bit too...frenetic? hyper? something, even though I so badly wanted to like it.) I noticed that comment about Renee, too, and wondered about its perfect timing.

    As for Renee, to each his own. I will admit I am shocked by how unrecognizable she looks in the new photos. Other celebs who have "had work done" (come on, now, she must have) may look...odd...but they are still recognizable. I'm thinking of Mickey Rourke, Janice Dickinson, even Kenny Rogers.

    No judgment about her looks, but if this does prove to be a press stunt, I will be disappointed in her.

  2. I think your analysis is spot on.
    As the VO at the beginning of Sunset Boulevard recounts
    "8 press agents working overtime can do terrible things to the human spirit."
