Renee Zellweger is one of my favourite actresses. Not only is she an amazing actor - I find her pout one of the sexiest in the entire industry. I LOVE HER !
I am amazed by the flair with which she manags to pull off the characters she portrays on screen. Her sense of humour, knowledge of her craft and amazing personality make her someone like Meryl Streep in her generation. SHE IS AWESOME !!
I obsessively watch almost everything that has her in it. Here are my favourites :-
1.) Jerry Maguire : It takes a lot of guts to hold your own when all you have before this movie are uncredited guest appearances,and you are paired against Tom -Fucking-Cruise. I have a soft spot for this movie , and recently saw it three times in a row (which must have been atleast the 500th time iv seen the movie) and still managed to cry at all the five places i always cry. She is funny , believable and endearing to watch . Love you Dorothy Boyd .Also , the makeout scene is amazing and my favourite on-screen kiss.(as has been mentioned a painful number of times on this blog)
"That's not a dress , thats an Audrey Hepburn movie."
2.) Cinderella Man : It takes guts to get a man like Russel Crose to call you amazing. She is brilliant as a mother and is , if not betterthen definitely as good as Russel in the movie. Her entire dialogue , about praying that her husband get injured enough to be forced to give up boxing is hilarious in the seriousness with which she says it. Again one of my favourite movies and an absolutely brilliant performance.
3.) Nurse Betty : This ones quirky. Its brillianly funny and Renee does not let the her titular role get bigger than herself. If you havn't seen this one , i suggest you watch it , if only to see Morgan Freeman fall in love with Zellweger
4.) Down with Love : There is something about the extremely innovative style in which this movie is shot that warms you to it. An extremely ordinary movie which i have seen atleast ten times. And no there is no amazing dialogue but lots of extremely funny reparte- its just the magic that Ewan Mcgregor and Zellweger bring to stage. Girls you must watch this movie. Zellweger is stunning in this one , and Ewan is true to his name - "Ladies' Man , Man's man Man about town."
5.) Bridget Jones : the book is good , but the movie is awesome. She is amazing as an overweight british girl and i love this adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.Colin Firth has only been better paired with Jennifer Elle (The BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.) Zellweger is awesome as the believing clutz that she is in the movie.I ABSOLUTELY ADORE.
6.) Miss Potter : Watch this movie, if you ever wanted to be a writer. The dulcet tones of the film will warm you heart and only Zellweger could have managed to talk to rabbits and hares without seeming cuckoo to this jaded audience. Also , another movie where Mcgregor and Zellweger come together. I loved this one.
7.) Chicago : Now this is definitely not my least favourite infact it could be much higher up the list - but, it is where it is , because some of the others are so underrated. She kicks Zeta-Jones ass . She is the hottest jazz dancer i have ever seen.As Roxie Hart , she proved, not only is she talented but SE-XAYYY !!!
8.) Cold Mountain : BRILLIANT. does not deserve to be among last on the list, but i have a habbit of doing that to oscar winners. Also - JUDE LAW !!!
9.) Leatherheads : This ones really funny too. You have George Clooney (he directed it too.) Zellweger is awesome. I think she has a knack for playing period drama roles. Watch once - worth it .
I havn't really left anything :P so i guess, i really do love her.She is beautiful and i would love to see more of her in movies - i think she could kick Julia Roberts ass (who i agree is more traditionally pretty) but she is'nt given enough credit.
