After stepping out on Oct. 20 at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills, Renee Zellweger was met with immediate backlash through a barrage of articles, news segments and comments slamming the actress’ new look.

A day later Zellweger released a statement addressing the haters with a very positive message.

“I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” Zellweger, 45, told People magazine.

“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”

Sadly, it appeared to be mostly women taking aim at Zellweger’s appearance, and while she certainly doesn’t look like the squinty-eyed girl we all remember from Jerry Maguire — she still looks great at 45!

Several articles pointed out that maybe Zellweger just stopped getting work done and this is actually her ‘real’ face.

Old Zellweger, New Zellweger — we don’t care. She’s happy and looks great and that’s all that matters!

Do you agree it’s time to embrace inner happiness over public acceptance? Sound off in the comments below…
