EXCLUSIVE – WATCH OUT RENEE ZELLWEGER, HOLLYWOOD IS JONESING FOR A NEW BRIDGET!

It was a tough week for Renee Zellweger.

First the actress was spotted making a rare red carpet appearance looking a shadow of herself, and now she may be about to lose her most famous role, Dish Nation has exclusively learned.

The production company behind the Bridget Jones movies are now considering Reese Witherspoon to replace Zellweger, 45, in the lead role for the long anticipated third movie in the series, an insider revealed.

LOOK: Renee Zellweger Is Unrecognizable!

“Working Title Films have Reese at the top of their list as a replacement for Renee,” a source tells Dish.

“Their main concerns over re-casting Renee are that she now looks too young for the role — given the work she may have had done. With that in mind, they are open to the idea of re-casting the role and see Reese as the perfect fit.”

According to the insider, production thinks Witherspoon might be just what the third flick needs.

“She’s a versatile character actress, who has played romantic comedy leads before,” the source said. “Reese would definitely be an ideal Bridget Jones.”

However, a source close to Witherspoon, 38, has revealed she may turn down the role because she really doesn’t want to put on the excess baggage needed to play the infamous spinster.

Texas Ain’t Big Enough… For Reese and Sofia!

“She’s not keen on having to put weight on for a role. Reese looks after her body, and doesn’t feel that an excess diet to bulk up for the role is healthy,” a pal of the Walk the Line star told Dish.

“And there’s also the case of having to lose the flab when the shoot is over and she’s onto another movie. It’s a headache she could do without.”
