Renée Zellweger Said That Anti-Aging Products Are Garbage And That Women Should Embrace Getting Older
Now that Renée Zellweger is a few years into her 50s, it’s high time for her to hit that Jane Fonda stroll and wax poetic over how amazing getting older is and that everyone needs to stop dreading it or trying to turn back the clock. If you were wondering what the only other option for women in Hollywood on deck to receive constant AARP mailings is, it’s claiming that what keeps you looking super smooth and young is just drinking lots of water and slathering yourself in olive oil and absolutely nothing else, right Jennifer Lopez Affleck?
Ever since 2014 when Renée re-emerged on a red carpet looking uncharacteristically wide-eyed and less squinty, rumors swirled that she had plastic surgery to open up her signature droopy eyelids. While she denied it in interviews and an op-ed, anyone who had eyes more ajar than her originals could see that something had changed. Apparently, Renée is still trying to make au naturel happen. The Sunday Times recently interviewed 53-year-old Renée, and she says that she’s come to a point in her life where she feels comfortable in her (untouched, according to her) skin and thinks that anti-aging beauty projects belong in the trash.
Renée Zellweger Talked About Wearing A Fat Suit To Play Pam Hupp In NBC’s “The Thing About Pam”
For a nation filled with fatties (myself included), we sure hate to see them in the movies or on TV unless they are villains played by our most prestigious hunky British actors (for the men) or our thinnest, most glamorous blond actresses (for the ladies). That seems unlikely to change anytime soon, but at least we are starting to have that conversation. Sarah Paulson, who played Linda Tripp in Impeachment: American Crime Story, was the most recent actress to sit in the padded hot-seat to answer for her rubbery crimes. Now it’s Renée Zellweger’s turn to try to explain why America hates looking at fat women unless they are actually thin women committing rubbery crimes.
Renée Zellweger Is Wearing A Fat Suit To Play Convicted Murderer Pam Hupp
I guess Renée Zellweger wants to tackle the E in her road to EGOT because she’s playing real-life murderer Pam Hupp in a series for NBC. But while some serious thespians will proudly fuck up their metabolism in the name of their art by gaining a bunch of weight in a short amount of time, Renée isn’t going that route again and has instead gone the Sarah Paulson route by putting Gwyneth Paltrow’s old Shallow Hal fat suit.
About Renee Zellweger’s Best Actress Oscar Speech….
To the surprise of no one following this awards season, Renée Zellweger took home the Best Actress Oscar last night. It’s her second Oscar win. Her first was for Cold Mountain in 2003, when Billie Eilish was nothin’ but a baby on her momma’s teet.
As someone who watched the Judy trailer over two whole times, I can confidently say Renée deserved the win. And even though Liza Minnelli wasn’t a fan, I think she nailed Judy Garland’s fragility and watery cow eyes. And I think she looked gorgeous in her glittery one-armed white gown. Her speech, on the other hand? Well… it definitely happened.
A Bunch Of Non-Oscar Nominated Movies Won Big At The Independent Spirit Awards
Despite not being nominated for anything at the Oscars, The Farewell took home Best Picture at last night’s Film Independent Spirit Awards, a ceremony held in Santa Monica, CA and is known for giving few fucks when it comes to the speeches, the red carpet, the outfits and…the Oscars. If award shows were a family getting together at Thanksgiving, the Spirit Awards would be the cool, arty cousin who smokes unfiltered Parliaments in the driveway while everybody else is inside drinking champagne and talking about Steven Spielberg.
At the very least, it was nice to sit through a televised evening of self-congratulation without having to see Brad Pitt’s shiny forehead or Quentin Tarantino being…Quentin Tarantino.
Liza Minnelli Was Feeling Shady When Asked About Renée Zellweger As “Judy”
I fully expect Renée Zellweger to get a standing ovation as she rises to accept her Academy Award for playing Judy Garland in Judy this Sunday. But there’s at least one person who won’t be standing, in fact I imagine Liza Minnelli will be sucking her teeth as she’s splayed across a velvet fainting couch surrounded by “her Oscar for ‘Cabaret’” which “sits on a low table alongside a copy of a 1972 Time magazine with Minnelli on the cover. On a table next to the couch are her Tonys, while a collection of additional awards crowd a sideboard near the entryway” as she’s described in a recent Variety interview. Liza’s not here for Renée’s portrayal of her mother. In fact, when the subject was brought up, she deployed shade so penetrating and complete, PG&E’s still reporting outages and is scheduling rolling blackouts for the next 10 years in order to recover.
