    No, that’s more telling of how actually she is considered or respected by the industry as an actress despite those two Oscar wins of the moment.

    That may be, or maybe she’s just being selective with roles and picks whatever she wants? Maybe she thinks this will be fun. LOL

    She already has 2 wins and I doubt she even has the thought of a third in the back of her mind.

    . It sounds like a cute movie and maybe she wanted something lighter after “judy”. If I’m right the first movie Julia roberts did after her Oscar win was a less serious one too….I’m sure other winner have done the same thing too but roberts came to mind off the bat

    And let’s not forget that Emma Stone’s follow-up to “La La Land” was … “Battle of the Sexes.” Maybe Renée Zellweger wanted something lighter to tackle after “Judy.” I don’t fault her for that. Also, acting like every over-50 Hollywood actress just has the cream-of-the-crop roles lined up even with 2 Oscars is a clear fallacy. Not everyone gets to have the career Streep’s had.

    Renee Zellweger does a fun movie that has not even filmed yet and still gets dragged.

    Exactly this!

    I think what people often forget is that Hollywood is a male dominated and somewhat misogynistic system. Is that slowly changing? Perhaps. But Hollywood simply doesn’t provide enough interesting or leading roles for older actresses (a phrase that feels somewhat ironic to use considering Zellweger is only 51). Hollywood is a rather monogynous system when it comes to its horrendous treatment of female performers. Once they reach a certain age the system automatically ignores them and the offers stop flooding in. It’s partly why we’re seeing such a resurgence in the amount of female led television (and more specifically mini series) and interest in those productions appealing more and more so to many A listers of a certain age. Especially after the successes the likes of Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Gillian Anderson, Laura Dern etc have had in using their goodwill from their roles on television in garnering more mainstream popularity and prestige roles. The roles on TV are simply juicer for performers and really are a great way at showing the amount of versatility one has.

    Renee Zellweger has proven herself with Judy. She can do whatever she wants! As has been said before she has two acting Oscars and she’s popular, celebrated (this woman was Bridget Jones and Roxie Hart!) and yes talented enough for her to be able to kill another role in a few years time even if she’s not being overwhelmed with offers and without having been forced to work every second (as she more for less did with Judy). The same thing with Kate Winslet (who looks like she might be striking gold with Mare of Easttown). If Nicole Kidman (arguably one of the most respected and popular actresses right now and like Zellweger a massive star from the 90s/00s) can go from Just Go With It, Before I Go To Sleep and Grace of Monaco to Big Little LiesLion and Paddington then Zellweger’s career is not over due to her doing slightly lighter pieces of work.

    I feel like people are always so judgmental online of women of a certain age.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Um, really? Is that something people often forget? It’s literally at the forefront of my mind at all times and the lens through which I absorb all television and film, as well as celebrity culture, which perpetuates the rampant sexism and ageism and reinforces the patriarchy. I also think the word “somewhat” is a bit understated. And gay men are certainly not off the hook here.

    To quote the great Tina Fey at the 2014 Golden Globes:

    Streep is so brilliant in August Osage County, proving that there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60.

    I think the same thing happened to Jessica Lange after Blue Sky… or Jean Dujardin after The Artist. Sometimes actors nail a single performance but they don’t build on the momentum. Zellweger wasn’t helped by the photos showing how different she looked.

    It’s her birthday today. She was so cute in Miss Potter.
