Renee Zellweger Gets A Visit From The Meter Fairy

Renee Zellweger Gets A Visit From The Meter Fairy

Renee Zellweger speaks to a fellow caffeine fan on Wednesday (March 10) outside a Starbucks in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 40-year-old actress’ parking meter was about to expire, but the man noticed the time running out and saved her from a possible ticket by putting coins in the meter!

Renee gave him a $100 gift card to Starbucks for his help, writing “Thank you so much for the kindness,” on the card sleeve (via People).

10+ pictures inside of Renee Zellweger and a Good Samaritan…

    @ck_always: I was just wondering the same thing…but then i realized that would kinda defeat the purpose of being a meter fairy…lol

  • ck_always

    @BRooke: Hahah shoot, you’re right! That picture just threw me off as soon as I saw it, lmao!

  • Ryan

    very cool of her, it defeats the purpose yeah but it was the principle. kindness, pass it on!

  • kara

    “Good samaritain” yeah if photographers are around to take pictures of her pseudo-good action :)

  • slam dunk

    I keep reading about her being so nice to the public – how can you not love her!

  • natt

    No wonder I spotted 4 coins inside the TNT newspaper box slot Wednesday, 3 quarters, and a nickel, while walking up to fetch GG’s P.O.Box mail. I was still thinking about some Bonney Lake service rig no.100 that had passed us at the Church Lake, Buckley Hwy. T.

    deke at 3:49… There are some fairly current pix of Renee and Brad spending some down time in the No Parking Zone.

    Very sweet of her. I met her once in Amsterdam and she was so sweet. Seemed very humble.

  • Puffin

    What a nice gesture!

  • LuckyL

    Awesome story! I LOVE people sometimes!

  • Renee The Duck

    Yes she does seem like a nice person but her career is in the crapper. Just read on IMDB that her latest film, Case 39, with Bradley Cooper went straight to DVD. That’s like 5 films in row that have flopped horribly.

  • dian

    Renee is a sweet person not stuck up

  • Simply M

    How much is the ticket?..

  • tklablog

    The meter fairy is Milton Smith Jr. a well known Reggae musician who did not realize it was Renee Zellweger. He would have done the same for anyone. The paparazzi were following her and snapped the pics. She was very sweet and gave him a handwritten note and Starbucks card for $100 for his thoughtful gesture.

    @Simply M:

    They’re $45-55 here in LA, depending on what area you’re in. Good for this guy because those parking enforcement officers are ruthless
