Renee Zellweger: 'No Damien, No Jack!'

Renee Zellweger: 'No Damien, No Jack!'

Renee Zellweger wore an interestingly cut black top with really handy pockets at the Miss Potter Tea Party and Beatrix Potter Gallery Launch in NYC earlier today. The event was hosted by Tribeca Cinema Series at the Tribeca Gallery. Also pictured: actress Emily Watson, director Chris Noonan.

Renee recently denied being romantically linked with Irish singer Damien Rice and Jack White of The Black Stripes: “I like Damien so much. He’s one of my favorite singers, such a neat guy. But he is not my boyfriend. As for Jack, we didn’t date during Cold Mountain, as was reported. In fact, having only a scene or two together, we barely spoke and didn’t get in touch again until six months later. People said it was this on-again, off-again relationship, but I’ve never had one of those. We were just good about protecting our privacy.”

Miss Potter tells the story of of Beatrix Potter, the author of the beloved and best-selling children’s book, “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”, and her struggle for love, happiness and success. US release dates: Dec. 29 (limited), Jan. 12. UK release date: Jan. 5.

    She never said she didn’t date Jack White. She just said she didn’t date him during the filming of Cold Mountain. She said, “we were good about protecting our privacy.” She also said it wasn’t on-again, off-again – meaning they dated continuously. Jared, I think you misinterpreted what she said!

    hey i just got back from that screening! renee is SUPER skinny. i think she’s talented, but she’s a little too thin. i guess the camera (and wardrobe?) really does add on 10lbs because she looks so normal on film. but yeah, the woman has virtually no hips. her shoulders looked really broad because her legs/butt had no curves. i miss her bridget jones days. emily watson was a bit of wallflower, probably because no one recognized. too bad, b/c she’s an extremely talented actress.

    A lot of people detest Zellweger, as she comes across as strange and eccentric but have heard she’s one of the sweetest folks in Hollyweird. Gracious, kind, southern-like. Most artsy, gifted people march to their own drum, as she does. She used to be quite cute when she arrived on the scene, but then she gained and lost weight couple of times and something happened. Face is a bit puffy for her – not drawn, yet she is tiny. Can’t be starving or face would be drawn. She’s avid runner. Catherine Zeta-Jones said Renee is insane with the cardio and can run forever. Little bit neurotic, so exercise probably helps relax that. Think public personal life is bit of sore spot for her. She said no man (before Chesney) was ever “close to” wanting to marry her. Must be a little sad/insecure for that fact.

    hey hr –
    how come no word about the screening? How was the film? Did you stay for the Q and A? Anything interesting happen?

  • Bubble

    It’s “The White Stripes” not The Black Stripes”

    oh yeah, so the film was sweet. not exactly a driving plotline, but it wasn’t bad. might not be worth $11 in the theatre, but def a dvd rental. we had tea and biscuits beforehand and then renee, emily, and chris (noonan) entered the room and most of the attention was on renee. no Q&A, but once we got into the theatre, chris introduced the film, as well as the 2 leading ladies, and they waved, said a very brief hello and then left us to the film.

    anyway renee did seem very nice. she posed for photos with the children who were there and was signing things. actually at one point, she was kneeling in front of a table for quite some time, just autographing things, which i thought was pretty out of the way for her. so it was nice to see that she was so sweet to her young fans. i was just surprised at how slim she was, nothing against her personality or talent though.

    all the same, i wish ewan mcgregor had been there too ;)

    ok i just have to say 1 more thing – the two things that really annoyed me throughout the film were renee’s (3rd) attempt at a london accent and the way her face was puckered and squinty all the time. i think beatrix potter was supposed to be quirky, but all the face puckering was really annoying. it made me pucker my face too whenever she did it on screen. i think i’m doing it right now…
