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.
“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.
