Renee Zellweger Looks Like She Was ‘Hit With A Shovel Of Botox’

Renee Zellweger appeared this weekend at a fashion event in New York with a totally new look.

Having slimmed down to a size 6, the 44-year-old actress was almost unrecognizable from the granny-pants-wearing Bridget Jones. She displayed chiselled cheek bones, a heavy browline, and an unusually smooth forehead. This lead many people to wonder what had happened to the Renee Zellwegger of old?

There was no official comment from her or her spokesperson. This inspired one Twitter commentator to remark that she looked like she’d been “hit with a shovel of Botox.”

One reason given for the change in Zellwegger is her new lifestyle. She now spends her time behind the camera, both as a director and a producer. She says this has done wonders for her levels of stress – and her love life!

Renee said she was close to a breakdown following the ending of her 128-day marriage to country star Kenny Chesney in 2005.

After this disaster there was a heavy flirtation with – of all people – Sir Paul McCartney, in 2007, plus a stint with celebrity hotelier Andre Balazs, and another with comedian John Krasinski.

Zellwegger spent around ten years flitting from one short romance to another. Now, Renee has found a new man who she believes is “The One.” He is blues guitarist – and ex-heroin addict– Doyle Bramhall, who she knew from university in Austin, Texas.

Bramhall once confessed: “I thought it was cool to be a tough drinker and drug addict. From my experience. I think it is hereditary, and I think it gets worse every generation, especially alcoholism. I work constantly on my personal life and go to therapy and AA meetings. He was previously married to musician Susannah Melvoin, with whom he has two daughters.

It seems that Renee Zellwegger has a thing about musicians, and this time she believes that fate brought her to Bramhall.

Renee has not completely given up on acting though. She is due to appear in one more film, “4½ Minutes.”

As for Bridget Jones, it seems she will not reprise the role.It has been rumored that she fell out with with Helen Fielding – the author the the “diaries” – who failed to thank Renee in the foreword of the latest Bridget Jones book “Mad About The Boy.”

So, what can we expect from Renee Zellwegger and her ex-addict boyfriend? She spoke of starting a family, even adopting if necessary. One can only hope that this time Renee will have greater success in love than poor Miss Jones.
