She turned 50 a few years ago, but Renee Zellweger, who won another Oscar in 2020 for her role as Judy Garland in the biopic Judy, hasn’t let her growing age get to her heart. Or at least a lot less than she was in her twenties. I recently made this clear in an interview with the Sunday Times. It felt like turning 50 was a fresh start, without all the bullshit. The point where you can stop listening to all those voices in your head and all the expectations people have of you, and become more of your authentic self. Good luck to all the suckers in the world, because you’ve got to survive so much to my age, and I’ve earned my strength and my vote. It felt like a real revelation for the actress, who is known worldwide for her starring role as the insecure and socially awkward Bridget Jones in the films of the same name, and who has been criticized for her plump appearance — for having to put on some weight because it better suited the character. The criticisms would linger, whether she gained weight for a role or lost that weight again, and is suddenly labeled “too skinny.” In any case, the Bridget Jones films were a hit, and more than 20 years after the first release, there may be a sequel in the form of a fourth film.
