50-year-old ‘Judy’ actress Renee Zellweger is recalling the year after surgically altering her face, and says strangers’ comments were particularly “painful!”
In an interview on SiriusXM’s Town Hall session with Jess Cagle, Zellweger recalls a time when she was riding the London subway and heard a man talking to two women about her face! Zellweger recalls the man saying: “’How could she do that? Why would she go and have surgery on her face like we wouldn’t know?’ ‘She doesn’t look like herself, and you can’t just do that where you go and don’t look like yourself, because we expect you to look like yourself,’ And I thought, ‘Wow, that’s interesting.’”
Zellweger continues to describe the experience adding: “So I get up and I stand next to the door waiting for it to open and the man is still talking about how stupid I am. And he looked up and he said, ‘Oh God, you’re not — you are! Oh my God, but you look just like yourself!’ And I said, ‘Yeah, it’s funny how that works, isn’t it?’” Renee hnas since moved on from the experience, saying: “It’s only momentarily where you go, ‘Jeez, wow, that’s pretty painful.’ But I don’t live in that. It just visits my life here and there and I’m not really privy on that stuff until someone sends it to me. I don’t seek it out. You know, I have dogs and they have to have shots and they need pills twice a day. There’s a lot, you know. I have other things to do.” Watch Renee recall her pain here, and let us know: DO YOU THINK THE STRANGER’S COMMENTS WERE HURTFUL? DOES RENEE ZELLWEGER REALLY LOOK COMPLETELY UNLIKE HER OLD SELF?!
