Tragic news reaching us today about oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger. It seems that the preparation phase of the new Bridget Jones movie (Bridget Jones 3 - The Wrath of Khan and this time it's personal) has taken a turn for the worse.
The early reports, as yet unconfirmed, say that during a rehearsal on-set this morning Zellweger exploded into thousands of pieces suddenly and completely without any warning whatsoever.
Ms. Zellweger, who famously adds pounds to her sylph-like figure in order to get 'into character' for the part is believed to have gone too far this time. Friends tell how she has spent months, virtually 24 hours a day, eating burgers, fry-ups and pizzas.
Co-star and foppish dandy Hugh Grant said "Oh Fuck!" just like he did at the start of 'Four Weddings', when he heard the news. After some reflection, he added:
"Well I suppose it not all bad as at least we can get a proper English bird to play the part now"
