Happy Birthday Renée Zellweger! The American actress turned director turns 46 this year. After taking a long break, Renée made her first public appearance last year which left every one shocked.
Renée has won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress - Motion Picture and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her performance in the epic war drama Cold Mountain (2003).
However, the actress walked away from her acting career after starring in 2010's My Own Love Song, favouring instead a stint as a director and producer, which has done wonders for her stress levels and love life.
Renée has hinted that she felt close to a breakdown during her years on the A list, during which she suffered the humiliation of a 128-day marriage to country star Kenny Chesney in 2005. Renée later remarked: "I made the biggest mistake of my personal life. I felt a failure. I was looking for something else. I just needed to put acting aside. I needed to sit still and not to worry about the dresses and the hair and the travel and the interviews. I was going through huge life changes at the time. I wanted to stop and be a girl for a while," reports Dailymail. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2487494/Renee-Zellwegers-new-man-new-career-startling-new-look-Bridget-Jones-star.html)
