Renee Zellweger fears a third “Bridget Jones” movie may kill her, reports the Daily Mail. To accurately portray Helen Fielding’s plump protagonist, the petite blonde piled on the pounds for the first and second film.
“Can I just tell you my body is whacked by the time we finish one of those,” the actress confessed. “It doesn’t know what has happened because it thinks there’s supposed to be a baby and there’s no christening.”
Yet it was another film that put the scare in her — the documentary “Super Size Me.” “I had a panic attack with all the specialists talking about how bad this is for you, long term, putting on that much weight in short periods of time and they’re all saying, ‘You must stop this now or you’re going to die,’” Renee revealed.
According to Renee, gorging on pizza and chocolate is fun at first. “Then after a week, your glucose levels are going crazy,” she described. “You’re up and down and all over the place. It doesn’t feel good, and no one wants to hear that, but it’s the truth.”
David to Courteney: It’s me or Jen!
They’ve been happily married for eight years, but a third party could drive David Arquette and Courteney Cox apart. That human wedge is none other than Courteney’s former “Friends” co-star and real BFF, Jennifer Aniston!
According to TransWorldNews, David’s sick and tired of Jen’s constant post-divorce presence. So much so, he’s issued an ultimatum to his wife. “Somewhat understandably, David’s now saying it’s him or Jennifer,” a source told TWN. “He’s had enough and is drawing a line in the sand.”
Since Jen’s split from Brad Pitt and subsequent breakup with Vince Vaughn, she’s overstayed her welcome in the Cox-Arquette household. “He’s asking that Jennifer’s visits become less frequent and that there are no phone calls between midnight and 8 a.m.,” the source said.
“David is now telling friends that it feels like he is married to two women,” the insider added. “He likes Jennifer, but since she’s been single, she and Courteney spend so much time together that it’s no surprise he’s feeling left out.”
Reese and Vince don’t mix
While filming their upcoming movie “Four Christmases,” control freak Reese Witherspoon did not appreciate co-star Vince Vaughn’s swinging ways, reports the New York Daily News.
Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings “Vince rolls onto set in the morning looking like he just came in from a night out, while Reese will arrive early looking camera-ready,” the newspaper’s source said.
“Then Reese tries to force Vince into blocking out each scene and running through their lines as Vince tries to convince her that he’s an ad-libber and wants to play around and see where the scene goes.”
According to the spywitness, the co-stars have no patience for each other’s preferred acting technique. “Reese’s a one-take perfectionist and Vince likes to try it a few different ways,” said the snitch. “Sometimes Vince will be standing behind her and he has this look on his face that he just wants to kill her!”
Dish on the fly
What happens in Vegas … gets splashed all over the tabloids! So David and Victoria Beckham learned after a recent visit to a Sin City strip club. Posh and Becks, along with an entourage, spent hours in the venue’s VIP section with partially nude women entertaining them. “When the group chose me to dance for them I couldn’t believe my luck,” one performer told the Daily Mirror. “I put on a really sexy show.” … She credits yoga, Pilates and a macrobiotic diet as her fountain of youth, but is Madonna also resorting to surgical methods to turn back the clock? Pictures featured on the Daily Mail Online show the 49-year-old pop queen exiting a medical facility in New York earlier this week, and despite her oversized sunglasses, she was clearly sporting two telltale black eyes. Hmm.
