Much of the world is engaged in the ridiculous debate about what’s going on with Renee Zellweger‘s face.
Has she had a surgery? An eyelift? Botox? Facial implants of some sort? Micro-dermabrasion maybe? Some so-called journalists with nothing better to do decided to put together a ‘then and now’ set of images after Zellweger, best known for her alter ego character Bridget Jones, walked the red carpet this week at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.
So Zellweger is what we’re going to obsess over today rather than the flu, Ebola, Syria, the economy, our upcoming elections, global poverty or global warming?
To try to put things back in perspective, for our Zellweger offering, we thought we’d channel our own inner Bridgets by quoting from her “diary”:
“Being a woman is worse than being a farmer there is so much harvesting and crop spraying to be done: legs to be waxed, underarms shaved, eyebrows plucked, feet pumiced, skin exfoliated and moisturised, spots cleansed, roots dyed, eyelashes tinted, nails filed, cellulite massaged, stomach muscles exercised.
The whole performance is so highly tuned you only need to neglect it for a few days for the whole thing to go to seed. Sometimes I wonder what I would be like if left to revert to nature — with a full beard and handlebar moustache on each shin Dennis Healey eyebrows face a graveyard of dead skin cells spots erupting long curly fingernails like Struwelpeter blind as bat and stupid runt of species as no contact lenses flabby body flobbering around. Ugh ugh. Is it any wonder girls have no confidence?”
Damned if we do and damned if we don’t?
