Renee Zellweger, the Chicago actress was unrecognizable at a recent appearance at an event and she says she loves her new look.
People magazine reported that the 45-year-old actress said her happy life is the reason behind her different look and has shot down plastic surgery rumors.
She said, "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows."
"People don't know me in my 40s. People don't know me as healthy for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy," she added.
She says that more relaxing activities and happy relationship with her boyfriend Doyle Bramhall apparently contributed to her new look.
"My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to re-calibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things," Renee added.
