Renee Zellweger's New Face: A Cosmetic Disaster?

If you have been wondering where Renee Zellweger, 45, has been since your last movie flop around 2005, it has been getting a new face-literally. A simple then and now look at the photos show a dramatic change that most think is for the worse. The cosmetic surgery is not a horror outcome, thank god, but dramatic enough and for the worse. Comments about her new face run the gamut from cutting remarks like a "wax museum" to a more modest "its different". Maybe change is not always for the best. In her case, Renee was cute and adorable looking before the change and suited most of her roles. She was good looking. Now, not so much. Maybe this is like when a coworker leaves on Friday with brown hair and returns on Monday with blonde hair. Your first reaction is silent. You notice something different and make a judgment. As time moves on, it becomes their new look and you have no choice but to accept it. Like any change, people will make remarks.

With Renee, many think she was looking for that fountain of youth. Obviously, she was not happy with her face, so, she changed it and maybe she is not 100% happy with it, yet, it is too late. Maybe because the facial change is so dramatic and not subtle is why so many fans are commenting on her in mostly a bad way. Maybe Renee just cannot face the fact that she is 45 and no longer 30. Many have this problem. But maybe Renee's original face was the reason she became a movie star at age 27 in the movie, Jerry Maguire". I suspect that IS the case because how someone looks in casting a role is vital. Ten years ago, she won an oscar for "Cold Mountain", had she had a different face, I don't think she might have been casted for the role.

Why someone does such extensive facial cosmetic surgery is in their own sense of what beauty is to them, not to others. Teens do this daily looking in the mirror- wishing their look was different, even though, everyone else states she is beautiful. The problem is, despite the accolades, the person does not believe it because there is something not right!

Maybe the change is deeper. Renee has been looking for the "right" one to live with. Her parents have been married 51 yrs. None of Renee's attempts have succeeded and she has always battled with diet. With the clock ticking for her, she probably thought it is, "now or never" to do the facial change and hope for the best.

Time waits for no one.

I think she had a very distinctive look and now looks more ordinary. It's not a disaster like Meg Ryan or Courtney Cox, but I think she's watered-down her look.
