Liza Minnelli Does 'Not Approve' Judy Garland Biopic Starring Renee Zellweger

The upcoming biopic about Judy Garland does not have the approval of her daughter Liza Minnelli.

The 72-year-old Oscar-winner took to Facebook on Thursday (June 14) to reveal that she has no involvement in the upcoming movie starring Renee Zellweger as the iconic actress.

“I have never met nor spoken to Renee Zellweger… I don’t know how these stories get started, but I do not approve nor sanction the upcoming film about Judy Garland in any way. Any reports to the contrary are 100% Fiction,” Liza wrote along after it was reported that she and Renee have been meeting in regards to the movie.

For the past few months, Renee has been photographed looking just like Judy while filming in London.

The film follows Judy‘s final concerts in London, nearly 30 years after starring as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz before her death in June 1969.

The filming took place in the West End. Renee was spotted filming alongside co-star Jessie Buckley, who plays Rosalyn Wilder.

They filmed a scene with a car pulling up to the theaters, with paparazzi and crowds of fans waiting outside as Judy got out of the car, guided under an umbrella.

Renee was seen in the famous flower dress that Judy wore, rehearsing in her slippers. She was laughing on set, and fought off the chilly night air.

The movie, directed by Rupert Goold, is about Judy arriving in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts.

Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland - First Look Photo!

Renee Zellweger is seen as legendary star Judy Garland in the first photo from her new movie Judy, based on the true story of Judy Garland’s final concerts in London.

Also starring in the film are Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, and Michael Gambon. Principal photography just began on the movie in London, England.

Here’s a synopsis: Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Will she have the strength to go on?

Renee Zellweger Fires Back at Harvey Weinstein Lawsuit Allegations

A new lawsuit has come to light from several of Harvey Weinstein‘s accusers – and Renee Zellweger‘s name was brought up.

In the lawsuit, one of the accusers said that Harvey told her Renee‘s career was advanced by having relations with him.

A rep for Renee responded to the claims via The Blast, saying, “If Harvey said that, he’s full of sh*t.” The Blast adds that Renee and Harvey only had a professional relationship and no favors were ever exchanged.

Renee has not made a public statement about Weinstein‘s allegations.
