Renée Zellweger recalls 'painful' memory of strangers criticizing her face

Renée Zellweger recalls 'painful' memory of strangers criticizing her face”

ET Canada's Sangita Patel spoke with Zellweger on the TIFF red carpet, noting how her performance of that song in the film both "defines Judy Garland, it defines her moment in her life and it defines you in this movie", asking Zellweger what it was like to perform the beloved song.

Questions around the actress" face, or more specifically, what she had "done' to it began to come in thick and fast as speculation of plastic surgery began to swirl.

Last week, in an interview with Vulture, she said that the rumours, which emerged in 2014, "made her sad".

"They were talking about Hollywood and how Hollywood ladies are so silly, especially that Renée Zellweger", she told host Jess Cagle.

And I thought, "Wow, that's interesting".

The 2014 appearance that set off comments about Renée Zellweger's face.

"All of our affection and admiration for Judy sort of felt very alive in that moment, and thinking of what that song meant to her at that time in her life, and the nostalgia we all sort of feel about it now", Zellweger added.

"And then the rest was pretty hard to know because we're talking about very private moments that haven't been shared and it's sort of an interpretation of what the experiences of the person who was living under those circumstances at that time might be like". "Anyway, here's my stop'". "So you kind of feel a sense of responsibility to represent that as authentically as possible", Zellweger said. "But you sight correct admire yourself!' And I acknowledged, 'Yeah, it's comical how that works, isn't it?'" Oh my God, but you look just like yourself!' And I said, 'Yeah, it's amusing how that works, isn't it?'

The vulnerable Bridget Jones actress acknowledged experiences akin to this one had been "momentarily... moderately painful".

"The glue and the thing and the chemicals or something, I don't know, and some of it would just sneak out the crevice (on the side)", Renee laughed, adding sarcastically: "(Very) glamorous". "I think otherwise I would have just run away". "I have other things to do".
