Getting plastic surgery is commonplace for many celebrities. There are times though, when celebrities take their surgeries a tad too far, sparking unregulated comments from fans about their appearance looking alien. Which is exactly what happened to Renee Zellweger, and not that any celebrities deserve nasty comments, did Zellweger deserve what she was told by two fans?
The award-winning actress stayed on the down low back in 2014, but became a headline hitter when she reappeared out of hiding…looking completely different! And everyone noticed. Everyone.
Despite showing up at an award ceremony looking radically different, Zellweger swears up and down that she has not received any sort of plastic surgery. She claims a healthy lifestyle is what has promoted her face to look different.
In a statement made to People, Zellweger says, “I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” and continues on to call the whole situation of her being called out because of her looks “silly”.
“It seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn’t exist won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.” the actress explains, expressing the reason for her statement to People.
“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself,” she continues, pointing out her previously horrible schedule.

Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
Reported by Harper’s Bazaar, in a Sirius XM interview, Zellweger discusses an incident with two fans. She says,
“[The people] were talking about Hollywood and how Hollywood ladies are so silly, especially that Renée Zellweger. 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, ’cause we expect you to look like yourself.’” the rude fans continued.
“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?’”…Yikes!
