Renee Zellweger may end up in a fat suit for Bridget Jones 3, if there is one. She doesn’t want to gain that weight again.
“Can I just tell you my body is whacked by the time we finish one of those,” the actress confessed. “It doesn’t know what has happened because it thinks there’s supposed to be a baby and there’s no christening.”
Yet it was another film that put the scare in her — the documentary “Super Size Me.” “I had a panic attack with all the specialists talking about how bad this is for you, long term, putting on that much weight in short periods of time and they’re all saying, ‘You must stop this now or you’re going to die.’”
I have to say, although the headline had me raising my eyebrows, I’m actually sympathetic to her on this one. She’s gaining and losing a significant percentage of her body weight very rapidly. Although she maybe could calm down and not lose so much so quickly that she turns into a skeleton, the fact remains that her set point/comfort level/natural body shape/whatever you want to call it is thin. And also, if she’s gaining the weight (as she reports) on junk food, that’s not going to feel good to anybody. If you went on an all-junk-food-diet, I bet your body would react badly too. I don’t know, I don’t even like Squintyface, but I’m kind of understanding where she’s coming from. What do you guys think?
Thanks to Underpaid Princess for the link!
Oh, and by the way, for those of you who noticed that posting was lighter than usual, I’ll try to make it up to you by posting extra this week. My two day jobs got crazy for a while there.
