Renee Zellweger will reprise her role as Bridget Jones in the 2016 film sequel, “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” which marks her return to the industry after her six-year hiatus. After her hiatus, she was accused of having gone under the knife because she looked almost unrecognizable.

Recently, Zellweger attended at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills. “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," she told People.

For Zellweger, it is “silly” to talk about her appearance. However, she said she is choosing to address it because it seems that people “who come digging around for some nefarious truth that does not exist" will not leave her alone unless she gives an answer.

According to Zellweger, her friends tell her that she looks peaceful. She added that she was not doing such a good job at maintaining a healthy lifestyle for a long time because she took on an unrealistically sustainable schedule and did not have time to take care of herself.

The last film Zellweger starred in was “My Own Love Song.” Written and directed by Olivier Dahan, the comedy drama film was released in 2010 and also starred Madeline Zima, Forest Whitaker, Nick Nolte, Elias Koteas, Jordan Carlos, Andrea Powell and Annie Parisse, among others.

Currently, Zellweger is filming “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” which is directed by Helen Fielding. The upcoming romantic comedy will also star “Thinking Out Loud” singer Ed Sheeran, who recently bought a $13.3 million apartment in London right across the street from his own, according to The Sun.

Aside from “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” Zellweger will also star in two other films in 2016. She will star with Jon Voight and Djimon Hounsou in “Same Kind of Different as Me” and “The Whole Truth” with Keanu Reeves and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
