Renee Zellweger, The Bridget Jones star, hasn’t been seen in public for a while, but on Monday she made an appearance at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Calif., promoting a worthy cause.
Zellweger wasn’t the only star to show up at the event and was joined by Annette Bening, Josh Groban, and Kathy Griffin, (among others), to support The Painted Turtle, a camp for kids with life-threatening or chronic medical conditions.
The last time Renee Zellweger stepped out for a red carpet appearance was last November, when she attended the Burbank screening of Long Shot: The Kevin Laue Story.
According to most reports, Zellweger looked a little different, wearing a fitted, three-quarter sleeve black dress with pearls and only a touch of makeup. Nevertheless, she looked stunning as she stopped on the red carpet for photographers.
The fundraising event was also attended by Glee star Amber Riley who performed onstage, and then took to Twitter to tell her followers about it: “Honored 2b a small part in helping raise money for The Painted Turtle! Those kids brought me so much joy unite. Can’t even explain it!” She Tweeted.
As well as clearly being happy to be performing at the star-studded event, Riley was also very excited to have met Renee Zellweger: “Renée Zellweger is probably my new favorite person in life,” she said to reporters.
It seems Zellweger has had a quiet few years, and for the most part has stayed out of the limelight and the glaring attention of the media. The last time she starred in a movie was back in 2010 when she featured in My Own Love Song.
Since then, Renee Zellweger co-created and produces a show called Cinnamon Girl but it got no love from networks who seemed to totally overlook it.
