Renee Zellweger Talks Fame & Beyonce with 'Red'

Renee Zellweger takes the cover of Red magazine’s October 2016 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (September 6).

Here’s what the Bridget Jones’s Baby star had to share:

On Bridget Jones in 2016: “She’s older, and slightly wiser. She’s less naïve, more professionally accomplished, but she still has her charms and her idiosyncrasies. Don’t we all? There are conversations about ageism and independence and evolving with the times. Bridget always survives it. Whatever it is. Gives us hope.”

On taking five years off from acting: “I needed to stop. It was time. I’m a working girl, but I did save so that, when it was time for me to take a minute, I could. I did the things I used to do if I had time. I visited my parents. I spent time with my brother and his children. I made a home for myself. I fell in love with somebody.”

On fame: “I’m getting better at it. Not good at it. I don’t think I’ll ever be good at being a public person, because there’s nothing natural about it. But I’m getting better. And my girlfriends have a lot to do with that because we can laugh at it. I depend on my little group of girlfriends, all of them different, and brilliant. We get together and watch (Beyoncé’s visual album) Lemonade, and subsequently email a million mantras. We’ve got Beyoncé, so things aren’t all bad!”

“I hope I’m a little less boring than I might have been after just 25 years of being an actress and being in that cycle of making films,” Renee told reporters that day about her break from Hollywood (via People). “I wanted to learn something that had nothing to do with researching a character. I wanted to learn some things beyond the scope of what you are exposed to in film making in Hollywood. And I was craving a little normalcy.”

FYI: Renee is carrying a William & Son handbag.

Renee Zellweger Talks Aging: 'Why Are We Talking About How Women Look?'

Renee Zellweger is carefree on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s new issue.

Here’s what the Bridget Jones’s Baby star had to share with the mag:

On aging: “I’ve never seen the maturation of a woman as a negative thing. I’ve never seen a woman stepping into her more powerful self as a negative…”But this conversation perpetuates the problem. Why are we talking about how women look? Why do we value beauty over contribution? We don’t seem to value beauty over contribution for men. It’s simply not a conversation.”

On Bridget Jones: “I love this character…Bridget makes imperfection all right.”

On Donald Trump: “The language that he uses perpetuates a particular way of communicating that standardizes cruelty and mean-spiritedness as a culture norm.”

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.
