Renee Zellweger Reveals Why She Didn't Gain Weight for 'Bridget Jones's Baby'

Renee Zellweger poses for a photo with her co-star Patrick Dempsey at a photo call for their movie Bridget Jones’s Baby on Monday (August 22) in Sydney, Australia.

The Oscar-winning actress opened up to The Daily Telegraph about why she didn’t gain weight for the role, as she did for the first two films in the franchise.

Renee said that director Sharon Maguire talked her out of the weight gain.

Sharon was hoping we could show that Bridget had achieved her ideal weight, but at the same time it didn’t mean her life was perfect,” Renee said. “I wasn’t sure about that one though because we all have something we think is wrong, that needs fixing, that in our own minds represents the ideal that we are meant to obtain. And I like the idea that that stays with us throughout our lives.”

FYI: Renee is wearing a Gabriela Hearst dress and Brian Atwood shoes.
