Renee Zellweger is coming off the end of a six year break from Hollywood, and the actress is now opening up about that decision as well as the decision to start working again. She decided to spend some time away from the industry in 2010 to grow and a hopefully be a “little less boring” than she may have had she stuck around.
“I wanted to learn something that had nothing to do with researching a character. I wanted to learn some things beyond the scope of what you are exposed to in film making in Hollywood. And I was craving a little normalcy. I wanted to learn something new and grow as a person and see if I had aptitude for these things that interest me. And if not now, it would be, ‘Oh in two more years, or three years, then ten years’, and then just, ultimately, you just don’t do them. And I didn’t want that to happen.”
As for why she is returning now, it sounds like she just started to miss it too much.
“It was a really gradual thing. I just started looking around, reading some things. I was just curious and had missed it. I have a new perspective. I worked on the other side of the camera quite a bit while I was taking a little filming hiatus.”
Her much anticipated film, Bridget Jones’s Baby, opens on September 16, 2016.
