Renee Zellweger would unequivocally conclude it if everybody would stop articulate about her face. The 47-year-old singer has been a theme of media inspection over her coming for years. Now as she prepares to mangle her six-year interregnum from Hollywood with a recover of “Bridget Jones’ Baby,” Zellweger is once again traffic with a comments and questions about her appearance.

“I’ve never seen a maturation of a lady as a disastrous thing,” Zellweger said. “I’ve never seen a lady stepping into her some-more absolute self as a negative. But this review perpetuates a problem. Why are we articulate about how women look? Why do we value beauty over contribution? We don’t seem to value beauty over grant for men. It’s simply not a conversation.”

THR’s author described a singer as being some-more rhythmical after carrying formerly interviewed Zellweger on dual other occasions, adding “I felt like she was mentally vetting her each word before speaking.”

But Zellweger had copiousness of friends and co-workers come to her aid. Her “Bridget Jones’ Baby” co-star, Patrick Dempsey, slammed a thought of judging womanlike actors formed off their appearances.

“She should not have to face such scrutiny,” he said. “Hollywood can be unsparingly brutal… and it’s always worse for women.”

Jones scribe, Helen Fielding, agrees, adding, “Increasingly, we live a universe where a outmost — beauty, fame, thinness — is distinguished some-more than being human, comfortable and kind. It’s good that Bridget seems to have a following among immature teenage girls. we wish [the character] helps them remember that being a good chairman is some-more critical than carrying a large purse and a bottom like dual snooker balls.”

Zellweger has taken her lapse to a large shade really seriously, brushing adult on her polished British accent and shadowing a writer on “Good Morning Britain” to get into character. Her British co-star, Colin Firth, stays impressed.

“I’m always a small thrown by her American accent — sounds like she’s putting it on,” Firth said. “We were during a trip final week, and it was a initial time I’d listened her pronounce in her genuine voice in a year. It’s crazy how committed she is to a character.”

In fact, Zellweger kick out actresses like Kate Winslet, Tilda Swinton, Elizabeth Hurley, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rachel Weisz for a desired purpose behind in 2001.

“We never ever, ever, ever deliberate casting someone else,” Eric Fellner, co-chairman of Working Title, pronounced of a arriving sequel. “When we consider of Bridget Jones, we consider of Renee, and when we consider of Renee, we consider of Bridget Jones. Renee and Bridget are synonymous. It’s not like James Bond or some other franchise.”

“Bridget Jones’ Baby” hits theaters on Sept. 16.
