Renee and Judy: In a candid interview with the magazine, the Bridget Jones star said Garland had been a constant presence in her life from childhood and was ‘ just always there on the record player’ Zellweger seen here in 2019 [L] and Judy in 1968
Her caramel locks were styled in soft, glossy waves while her radiant features were enhanced with feline flicks of liner and a coral lipstick.
In a candid interview with the magazine, the Bridget Jones star said Garland had been a constant presence in her life from childhood and was ‘ just always there on the record player.’
When the Bridget Jones publicity tour stopped at a Tokyo karaoke spot, she famously sang ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ – with Zellweger also singing in the upcoming biopic.
She said: ‘Isn’t that funny? The only time I’ve ever done karaoke.’
The star also added: ‘Life is Judy Garland.’

In another interesting homage to Garland, the star revealed her canary yellow Oscars gown in 2001 was inspired by the actress in Till the Clouds Roll By (1946).
She said: ‘She had that red lipstick and she was wearing that yellow dress and I thought, “Oh yes,I’ve got to figure that out!”
Director Rupert Goold also praised Renee for having the strength to step away from her career – as Judy did.
He said: ‘Some people have really celebrated that, and some people have been gossipy about it—and I think that’s quite close to Judy.’
‘She has this deep, remote interior quality,’ he says. ‘She absolutely sparkles in her smile, and yet her eyes contain great reservoirs of experience and sadness.’

Per Decca Records, ‘Zellweger delivers breath-taking performances of Judy Garland’s best-known and much-loved numbers, which have become some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including Get Happy, Come Rain or Come Shine and Over the Rainbow.’
The film’s director, Rupert said of the actress, ‘I made it clear to Renée that I wasn’t looking for an impersonation of Judy Garland’s inimitable voice, but what I wanted was for Renée to make the songs her own and this she did to thrilling effect.’
The record will be released 50 years since Judy’s passing in 1969, aged just 47, and eight decades since she starred in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.
Renee is also appearing in new Netflix series What/If.
In the series produced by Robert Zemeckis, the Cold Mountain Oscar winner plays a schemer and seductress in what’s billed as a modern-day morality tale.
Reminiscent of the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal that starred Robert Redford, Demi Noore and Woody Harrelson, What/If sees Zellweger make a newlywed couple the offer of a lifetime – if the husband sleeps with her, she will fully fund the wife’s fledgling business to the tune of $80 million.
The newlyweds are played by Jane Levy and Blake Jenner, who joined Zellweger for the screening.
The full interview with Renee can be found in the latest issue of Town & Country magazine.
