Interview with Renee Zellweger
Renée Zellweger's Life Lessons
By Dena Ross
As one of Hollywood's most acclaimed actresses, Renée Zellweger has had so many memorable roles in so many blockbuster movies, it's hard to keep track. Of course, her portrayal of the tough and feisty Ruby Thewes in "Cold Mountain" landed her an Oscar, and young women everywhere will forever know her as the bumbling, wonderful Bridget Jones. Oh, and let's not forget "Jerry Maguire," "Chicago," and, more recently, "Bee Movie," "Appaloosa," and "Leatherheads."
"I sort of naturally gravitate towards [movie roles] that might be a nice antidote for...whatever is going on in my life," she recently told Beliefnet's Dena Ross in an interview. "My life lessons come in the form of scripts."
Zellweger is currently starring in "New in Town" as a Miami businesswoman who moves to Minnesota to oversee the restructuring of one of her company's factories. In this interview, she talks about the best piece of relationship advice she ever received, her own "fish out of water" story, and what makes her laugh.

In the new movie "New in Town" Renee Zellweger plays a businesswoman adjusting to life in a small town. In this clip, a co-worker shares a special gift with her.
