(WTNH)– Renee Zellweger’s face has taken over most of social media for the past 24 hours.
If you haven’t heard, the actress debuted a new look at Elle magazine’s 21st annual Women in Hollywood event after being out of the spotlight for the past few years. Many wondered whether it was actually the same person or if Zellweger underwent major plastic surgery.
The actress however thinks all the buzz is “silly” and told People magazine in a statement “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 also credits a healthier lifestyle and better schedule during her hiatus from filming.
While Zellweger is receiving some criticism for the drastic change, several others are coming to her defense, questioning why everyone is so obsessed with what a women chooses to do with her own body.
Zellweger’s latest film, “The Whole Truth” is due in theaters next year.
