Renee Zellweger: who altered her face?

by | 8th, August 2016

Plastic surgery / cosmetic surgery matters only to the person who opted for it. So, then, to the face worn by Renee Zellweger, which triggers the Daily Mirror story: “Renee Zellweger blasts back after plastic surgery claims: ‘I did not make a decision to alter my face’.”

Which begs the question: who did? Or maybe the wind changed and, as your mum warned you, she stayed like that?

The Mirror adds:

She penned a thoughtful essay where she slammed “humiliating” attacks on her appearance. But Renee Zellweger’s critics have continued to speculate after she denied having plastic surgery, telling the Bridget Jones Diary actress that if she has had work done, she should “own it”.


Own it. Own your own face? The Mirror’s quote comes from a tweet, which opined in a vacuous command: “Be proud and own it girl.”

In her thoughtful essay for Huffington Post, Renee responded to accusations she had an eye lift back in October 2014 , “not that it’s anyone’s business”.

The essay might well have been thoughtful, but it was for nought: two years on and the Mirror is all over it.

Vogue also covers the story:

“In October 2014, a tabloid newspaper article reported that I’d likely had surgery to alter my eyes,” the Bridget Jones actress wrote in a letter for The Huffington Post. “It didn’t matter; just one more story in the massive smut pile generated every day by the tabloid press and fuelled by exploitative headlines and folks who practice cowardly cruelty from their anonymous internet pulpits.”


“Not that it’s anyone’s business, but I did not make a decision to alter my face and have surgery on my eyes. This fact is of no true import to anyone at all, but that the possibility alone was discussed among respected journalists and became a public conversation is a disconcerting illustration of news/entertainment confusion and society’s fixation on physicality.”
