Renée Zellweger 'happy to be recognised again'

Renée Zellweger is said to be eating more and exercising less for her return to the big screen as Bridget Jones.

Renée Zellweger is apparently thrilled that her new appearance means she's being recognised on the street again.

The 46-year-old actress made the headlines at the end of 2014 after she was snapped looking completely different on several occasions, with many claiming she had overdone it with Botox. She insisted her new look was simply because she is feeling happy in her life, and that living a peaceful existence has made her a lot healthier.

But as she returns to her role as Bridget Jones on the big screen Renée has been spotted on location in London, UK, looking like her old self. This is said to have added to the star's confidence, as it means more fan interaction.

"Renée was horrified when everyone was saying that she didn't look like herself and she's been determined to transform herself back," an insider told Britain's Closer magazine. "She's thrilled with how she looks now because people actually recognise her in the street again."

It will be her third outing as the avid diary writer, with the second movie, The Edge of Reason, released in 2004. Renée piled on the weight for the first two flicks and is said to be doing the same this time round.

"Renée is now eating 3,500 calories a day and has dramatically reduced the amount she exercises," the insider added. "She's been eating lots of chips and crisps. She was a size 8 (UK) before filming and now she's a 10 -12."

Keeping her company for a while during filming in England is her boyfriend, Doyle Bramhall II. The couple have been dating for almost three years and it seems their romance is stronger than ever.

"Doyle's coming over to the UK to spend time with Renée while she's filming - he's completely smitten with her," the source noted.
