You do YOU, Renee!
In another statement by Renee Zellweger going against dumb Hollywood norms, the actress revealed that she doesn’t need to have certain things to be happy — including kids — in a new interview with Extra:
The 47-year-old actress, who stars in the upcoming sequel Bridget Jones’s Baby, said that although she played a pregnant woman on set, she hasn’t thought too much about motherhood. When asked by Extra if she was “craving” a baby, she said, “I’ve never really thought like that about anything in my life, really. I’ve always been kind of open to whatever may be, curious to see what’s next. I’ve never been that deliberate about my life and the things that I would require in order to be happy.”
The Oscar winner explained that her character in the movie, Bridget Jones, shows people it’s totally fine to have flaws or to not be married with children by a certain point in their lives. “She makes it OK to be imperfect,” Zellweger told Extra. “She makes it OK to be human at a time when we feel probably that there’s a lot of social pressure to be a certain way, to look a certain way, to have established certain things in your life by a certain phase in your life experience. She’s sort of challenging those notions.”

Renee has been dating boyfriend Doyle Bramhall for four years, and I’m happy she’s not getting as hounded about kids as Jennifer Aniston, who is about the same age. Probably because Renee has a little more leeway in terms of being in and out of the spotlight. I love her atttitude of “whatever life brings me.” It’s true- an agenda is what’s going to make life full of weird expectations and disappointments. She’s already had a pretty great life, if you ask me.
