James Corden auditioned for Bridget Jones’s Baby, and the whole thing was caught on tape for The Late Late Show!
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to audition for Bridget Jones’s Baby,” James told Renee Zellweger. “I love all of the films. I watch them all of the time. My wife’s like, ‘All right, turn it off.’ And I’m like, ‘No! I’ll watch what I want!’ ”
To do his audition, James dressed as some very famous British personalities including Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Queen Elizabeth II, Austin Powers, Gandalf, and more. Finally, Patrick Dempsey shows up to save the day.
The following day, Reese got the chance to check out her friend Renee Zellweger‘s new movie Bridget Jones’s Baby.
“Always 💖 seeing my friend #RenéeZellweger and her return to one of my favorite characters! Bridget Jones’s Baby was so fun. Did y’all see it??” she captioned an image of the friends together on her Instagram.
Renee Zellweger strikes a pose in a white dress while attending a special luncheon in celebration of her latest film Bridget Jones’s Baby on Tuesday (September 13) in New York City.
The Oscar-winning actress was joined by her co-star Colin Firth, director Sharon Maguire, writer Helen Fielding, producer Eric Fellner, and moderator Savannah Guthrie ahead of her special fan screening of the flick at Cinema 123 hosted by DuJour Media, Gilt, and Zacapa Rum.
“My personal life had taken a back seat to fulfilling my professional obligations. I felt a responsibility not to let people down. And so I just kept going,” Renee revealed to People about going through an exhaustion period. “I’m glad folks think I look different. I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows. I am healthy. For a long time, I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable. I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. Bad advice… when someone else’s suggestion about what might be a good idea feels like kindness.”
That same day, Renee and Colin‘s co-star Patrick Dempsey was spotted keeping it cool and casual while making his way inside El Capitan Theater to promote the film on Jimmy Kimmel Live in Los Angeles – Watch his interview below!

The Oscar-winning actress was recently asked by The Advocate to discuss the rumors that her ex Kenny Chesney is gay. The couple got married in 2005 and she cited “fraud” while annulling their four-month marriage.
“I forgot about that. It’s a pretty big thing to forget, isn’t it? That made me sad. It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences. Of course, there’s the bigger-picture problem of why anyone had to make up a story at all,” Renee said.
FYI: Renee is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and David Webb jewelry.
The 47-year-old actress and her leading men have been hot on the European promo trail this week, already making stops in Paris and Berlin after premiering the movie in London.
The trio was also joined on the red carpet by the film’s director Sharon Maguire.
“There were interesting conversations with [Sharon] about how [Bridget] might have gotten her life together,” Renee recently told The New York Times about her character. “She’s a little bit more mature, she’s progressed professionally, moved into property ownership in London and has achieved her ideal weight. And still her life is a relative mess. I like the message in that: that we can tick off the boxes, and yet we still don’t quite have it together. And that’s pretty much the truth of growing up, isn’t it?
Catch Bridget Jones’s Baby when it hits theaters on September 16!
