After gaining and loosing more than 30 pounds for the first two Bridget Jones films, Renee Zellweger is throwing in the towel on her weight.
News that Renee will once again revive the quirky character made my heart fill with joy. News that she will be wearing a “fat suit” to portray the pleasantly plump Bridget made me doubt the films integrity. While I shouldn’t condone putting your body through huge changes for a role, one wonders if the third installment will be done in a half assed manner.
“Renee will be wearing a fat suit in the third film as it took her a while to lose the weight last time,” a source tells Britain’s Reveal magazine. “She’s also thinking about the effect quickly putting on and then losing 30 pounds has on her body.”
I guess it should be interesting to see what wardrobe and makeup can do. The plot is rumored to center around Jones’ attempt to have a baby after while in her 40s. At least Colin Firth and Hugh Grant will be there to take my mind of the fat suit issue with their slap and tickle fights.
If I were Renee I would relish the opportunity to eat more than ice chips, cigarettes and humming bird water. I would run the streets with a chicken gordita supreme in one hand and a Snickers bar in the other proclaiming I was happier than Santa Clause at Disney Land getting laid.
