ZELLWEGER: VANCOUVER HIGHS AND LOWS
November 9, 2006
So Renee’s been in town for almost 3 weeks shooting a movie. First week she’s at Starbucks getting a coffee. A man orders behind her, he’s downtown with his daughter taking photos of the bears. Not real bears, fake bears, don’t it ask…it’s the lamest city promo thing, I’m too embarrassed to describe it.
Anyway, a few fans come up to Renee, they ask her for her autograph, she obliges, she’s really nice about it, and so the man with the daughter takes out his camera for a photo…at which point she completely loses it. She starts yelling, she starts cussing, “I really f...ing wish you would [sic] take my f...ing picture! Are you paparazzi???” And he replied that he wasn’t, that he was there with his daughter taking photos of the lame, embarrassing bears, and he asked if she’d like him to delete the photos, and she said yes, and she went on a little more about being photographed “all f...ing day” and how she wished he would just talk to her normally, and it’s almost kind of sad when you think about it and if not for the trucker mouth, I’d probably be more sympathetic but…
Fast forward a week later. Safeway – grocery store. Renee does her own shopping, she’s in the parking lot, on her way out, a woman bumps into her cart accidentally, and Renee snaps again, “Why don’t you watch where you’re going???”
Then a couple of days ago, Renee is filming on the east side, sitting on the lawn during break with her bodyguard, a young girl walks by with a dog. Renee says, “Now THAT’s what’s missing in my life”, and then she offers $2,000 to the girl in exchange for her dog. They laugh, they joke, Renee keeps throwing out the dollar amount, the girl eventually walks away unwilling to give up her dog, Renee remains dogless and quite likely on meds.
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES!
January 20, 2006
Shocker of the evening?
Renée Zellweger wasn't allowed into the Golden Globes' backstage press area! "Renée was looked at by two security guards and was denied access because she did not have credentials," an eyewitness tells Star. "Renée looked skinny and was wearing heavy black makeup. After much begging by a friend who said 'but this is the Renée Zellweger' she was let in!"
Renee Sets Record Straight
December 21, 2005
Oh yes she is! Oh no she isn't!
Renee Zellweger isn't in Panto - she's setting the record straight about her love life.
Last week, countless showbiz snoops revealed that the lovely Renee Zellweger might just be getting it on again with her blink-and-you-missed-him hubby, Kenny Chesney.
The pair, who were married for about as long as it takes you to read these words, had been spotting canoodling over their cannelloni in an Italian restaurant in Connecticut.
One onlooker at the restaurant said: "They just kept looking at each other. They were cuddling during their meal."
"WRONG!" says Renee.
The pair are not getting back together, and have only met up recently to discuss divorce proceedings.
Renee's publicist told the New York Post: "She and Kenny are not getting back together and they are not dating.
"For any couple who change the state of their relationship, there are loose ends to tie up and discussions to be had."
That's clear then. So everyone, all together now. Where's Renee's marriage to country singer Kenny?
"It's behind her!"
Are Jack White & Renee Zellweger Back
His wife thinks so....
by Lowri Williams
September 20, 2005
The White Stripes front-man Jack White is in big trouble with his new wife just months after they were secretly married.
British model Karen Elson who wed White in a canoe in June was gutted when her hubby rushed off to comfort ex-flame, Renee Zellweger after her 4 month marriage broke down.
Elson who starred in The White Stripes ‘Blue Orchid’ video is allegedly terrified that the old lovers will get it back on.
Zellweger married country singer Kenny Chesney in May after being together for a few months, White warned her against the whirlwind relationship before marrying Elson after just four months.
A reliable ‘source’ told the Daily Star: "Karen is absolutely horrified. Jack dropped everything to be by Renee's side, and Karen only found out after he'd left.
"She knows that although Jack is very fond of her she'll never measure up to Renee. And she's terrified he will rekindle his romance with her."
Chesney and Zellweger Split After 5 Months
September 15, 2005
Country singer Kenny Chesney and actress Renee Zellweger are having their marriage annulled after five months, according to their publicists.
Their small surprise wedding was held on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands in May.
Chesney was missing from the September London premiere of Cinderella Man, where Zellweger said he was “just finishing work,” Star Magazine reported.
The star couple was last seen together in public May 28.
Chesney said Zellweger was the inspiration for his 1999 hit “You Had Me From Hello,” after watching Jerry Maguire.
Zellweger won ‘Best Supporting Actress’ in 2004 for her role in Cold Mountain.
Chesney received the Country Music Association’s ‘Entertainer of the Year’ award in 2004.
The couple met at a tsunami relief benefit and dated four months before they married.

Jack White still Zellweger's soul mate
August 7, 2005
THE WHITE STRIPES star JACK WHITE has given his former lover RENEE ZELLWEGER a shoulder to cry on, because she is reportedly panicking about her marriage to country singer KENNY CHESNEY.
The BRIDGET JONES beauty, whose husband is currently on tour, allegedly phoned the SEVEN NATION ARMY rocker in a state of distress - proving she is still closer to White than anyone else.
A pal of the star tells British newspaper the Daily Star Sunday, "Both married in haste. I think Renee's come down to earth with a bump and she's frantic worrying about what happens next.
"The fact she's phoning him shows there's still a deep, strong bond there.
"Even though she wears Kenny's ring, they're not as deep as she was with Jack."
Trouble in paradise
WHITE SLAMS ACCUSATIONS WEDDING WAS PUBLICITY
June 6, 2005
LATEST: WHITE STRIPES rocker JACK WHITE has slammed reports his marriage to model KAREN ELSON last Tuesday (02JUN05) was a publicity stunt to promote today's (06JUN05) release of his new album, GET BEHIND ME SATAN.
The SEVEN NATION ARMY singer followed in the footsteps of his ex-girlfriend RENEE ZELLWEGER - who secretly wed country singer KENNY CHESNEY last month (09MAY05) - by exchanging vows with Elson in a shock wedding in Brazil, after a whirlwind five-week romance.
White's bandmate and reported ex-wife MEG WHITE served as bridesmaid and the duo's manager IAN MONTONE took on best man duties as the couple were wed by a shaman.
But White's baffled by claims the wedding was fake, insisting, "It's definitely for real.
"We knew we were in love probably from the moment we met each other. Whether it was going to happen a year from now or three days later, it was just going to happen."
Zellweger split from White in September (04) after a two-year relationship.
Renee Who? Jack White Weds
Jun 2, 2005
Wednesday was a nice day for a Jack White wedding.
The White Stripes frontman is apparently wasting no time getting over ex-girlfriend Renée Zellweger's out-of-the-blue wedding to country star Kenny Chesney--he's gone and tied the knot in eyebrow-raising fashion himself.
White married British model Karen Elson in Brazil on Wednesday, less than a month after the Zellweger-Chesney nuptials went down.
The news was first posted on WhiteStripes.com and later confirmed by the band's publicist.
Per the Website account, a traditional shaman priest performed the canoe-based ceremony "on the confluence of three rivers…in the Amazon basin in the city of Manaus."
It was a White Stripe wedding all around, with drummer-vocalist Meg Wife serving as maid of honor and manager Ian Montone acting as best man before a "small party of close friends."
It's the first on-the-record marriage for both White, 29, and Elson, 25. But with Jack White (born John Anthony Gillis) notoriously coy about his relationship to Meg White--upon signing with V2 Records they claimed they were brother/sister, but court records later showed they were married from 1996-2000--and with a White Stripes album due for release next Tuesday, there's been some speculation the wedding is a publicity stunt.
The "Fell In Love With a Girl" singer's wedding is even more startling than the Zellweger-Chesney shocker that went down May 9--news that White was even dating Elson had hardly registered in gossip pages or the music press. (She does, however, appear in the new White Stripes video, "Blue Orchid," in which she's covered with snakes.)
Still, White publicist Chloe Walsh said Thursday it was the real deal.
The lo-fi Detroit blues-rock band's fifth full-length album, Get Behind Me Satan, is the follow-up to the Grammy-winning 2003 smash Elephant. The White Stripes say they recorded the new album in less than two weeks, with Jack White calling it "our most dense-sounding record yet."
Elson is known for her extreme looks (she famously shaved off her eyebrows in the late 1990s) and genre-pushing cover shoots in magazines like Vogue and Paper. She has appeared in campaigns for Gucci, Valentino, Versace, Prada and even Banana Republic. Before hooking up with White, she had been romantically linked to other musicians, including Calla's Aurelio Valle and former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, who reportedly helped Elson record a few tracks for a forthcoming music project.
White, meanwhile, is known for his off-kilter brand of garage rock. He met Zellweger while working on Cold Mountain (he had a minor role and also pitched in on the soundtrack) in 2003 and the two dated for nearly two years before splitting in late-2004. He won his third career Grammy in February for producing Loretta Lynn's comeback album, Van Lear Rose.
Renee Zellweger marries country star
May 10, 2005
Bridget Jones isn't single anymore.
Renee Zellweger has surprised Hollywood by getting married on Monday, May 9.
She was first seen with country music superstar Kenny Chesney, 37, earlier this month when the actress was spotted kissing the singer at one of his shows.
IMDB.com reports that the stars exchanged vows on St Johns, a Caribbean island. Kenny has a holiday home there, and is reported to have flown there with Renee, 36, after a performance in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
None of the celebrities had married before. Renee was engaged -- to Jim Carrey -- a few years ago. After that relationship ended, she reportedly dated Irish singer Damien Rice and The White Stripes' lead singer, Jack White.
Till a few weeks ago, she was still reportedly hung up over Jack, which makes this wedding all the more of a surprise
ZELLWEGER'S LOVE-IN WITH RICE
Planning a New England Move
January 6, 2005
RENEE ZELLWEGER is planning to quit Los Angeles for good after she's finished promoting her new movie THE CINDERELLA MAN and set up home in New England.

Renée & Jack - It's Over
December 30, 2004
Just like her most famous screen character, perennial singleton Renee Zellweger is still searching for love.
The Bridget Jones star is back on her own again after it was revealed she has split with rock star lover Jack White.
Renee, 35, met the White Stripes singer two years ago on the set of Cold Mountain in Romania.
But the couple have barely been seen out in public, except for at this year's Oscars ceremony back in February.
It is rumored White, 29, wanted the actress to move closer to his Detroit base. Texan Renee bought two houses nearer to the singer, but it appears to no avail.
Now it is back to the drawing board for Renee, who has previously dated George Clooney and Jim Carrey.
A spokesman for the actress described the split as "amicable".
Renee Zellweger and Rocker Boyfriend Split
Dec 27, 2004
Renee Zellweger and
White Stripes rocker Jack White have split after more than a year and a half
The actress's publicist tells PEOPLE the pair broke up in September, "and they remain good friends. No scandal. No new relationships."
The newly single Zellweger spent Christmas Day with family members at the Los Angeles Lakers-Miami Heat game in L.A.
Zellweger, 35, has always remained quiet about her relationship with Grammy winner White, 29, whom she met while filming the 2003 Civil War epic Cold Mountain. (White plays a troubadour in the film and contributed to the movie's soundtrack.) Though both stars were closely guarded about their romance, the couple did attend this year's Oscars together, where she won Best Supporting Actress for the film.
Next up: Zellweger is prepping for the June release of Cinderella Man, a Ron Howard drama costarring Russell Crowe. White, meanwhile, is up for more Grammy honors for collaborating with country legend Loretta Lynn on her album, Van Lear Rose.

'SOMETIMES, surely, truth is closer to imagination — or to intelligence, to love — than to fact. To be accurate is not to be right," said novelist Shirley Hazzard.
ON NOV. 24 this column printed these words: "The glamorous Renée Zellweger is not engaged." But the statement seems to have passed by unnoted. People keep insisting she is about to marry White Stripes singer Jack White, and that Christmas and the altar are Renée and Jack's destination.
Listen again. Renée and Jack have not even "dated" since September. They remain friends, but she's been in China promoting her second "Bridget Jones" movie, and she intends to spend the holidays with her family.
Just Christmas bells for Renée, not wedding bells.
November 09, 2004

RENEE: I DON'T WANT
TO BE LIKE BRIDGET
Oct 30 2004
RENEE Zellweger says she isn't planning to settle down with a man - unlike her film character Bridget Jones who moans she can't get a bloke.
The 35-year-old star has been linked to several Hollywood heart-throbs including actor George Clooney.
But she said: "Am I on a quest for a husband? Well, I don't look at it that way.
"I don't think it's something you need to do by a certain age. I didn't grow up thinking that the guy was going to ride up on a horse.
"And that I was going to have this kind of wedding and, by the time I was this age, I was going to have the house and kids.
"I just didn't have those prerequisites for happiness."
Renee - as diarist Bridget Jones in two blockbuster films - is obsessed with finding Mr Right.
But Renee told Weekend magazine that no man has ever proposed to her. She revealed: "I've never been proposed to or engaged. Never, never, never. Not even close.
"I've never been an active partner-seeker. When it happens, it's a lovely thing and I believe in it, and I've seen how happy my parents are.
"But I don't think that happiness is contingent upon finding it."
The actress admitted playing weight-obsessed Bridget - she had to pile on 25lbs - did have its up side.
She admitted: "Being about to fill out a dress got me positive comments from men more frequently than I do now!" And she added: "It was a sad day when I had to retire my C-cup to the drawer but it wasn't because I felt pressure to be a certain weight in Hollywood, or anything like that. That's my size - I'm a little girl."
The sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, is released on November 12 (UK)
Is Renee Zellweger having a white Christmas
Sept. 11, 2004
[Hollywood News] Washington: Rumours are rife that Oscar winner Renee Zellweger's Christmas party is just an excuse for a secret wedding ceremony, because she is asking her friends to be there at all costs and does not deny wedding rumours when asked.
According to Star magazine, the 'Chicago' actress, who has been dating rocker Jack White, also said that she wants to hold the party at Christmas, because the media will be busy elsewhere.
"Renie has told several close friends to be available for a party at her house over the holidays. When they asked if it was a Christmas party or a wedding, she just smiled and didn't answer," the report quoted an insider as saying. (ANI)
Renée Zellweger in hiding ...
August 31, 2004
SPIES tell us a touch of glamour was brought to the Reading Carling Festival in the shape of sexy starlet Renée Zellweger.
The Bridget Jones actress hid from the crowds, watching from the side of the stage as fiancé Jack White performed with Saturday night headline act The White Stripes.
The 35-year-old actress is clearly one of Hollywood's shy, timid creatures. She spent the day holed away in her music man's backstage trailer until it was time for his performance.
Shame on you Renée - play in the mud next time like everyone else!
Zellweger and White To Wed?
27 February 2004
Oscar-nominated actress Renee Zellweger and rocker boyfriend Jack White are reportedly seriously considering marriage. The Bridget Jones's Diary star - who is set to attend Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony to see if she wins Best Supporting Actress - was overheard chatting to The White Stripes frontman about weddings. Zellweger, 34, was with White, 28, at a photo shoot in New York and confessed she is looking forward to her wedding day. A source says, "They were talking openly about marriage. Renee said, 'Part of me does want to get married as badly as Bridget Jones.'"
Renée Ponders 'Bridget 3'
13 February 2004
Actress Renee Zellweger has hinted she may be prepared to pile on the pounds again and play Bridget Jones in a third movie. The star, still busy filming the first sequel, The Edge Of Reason, hasn't ruled out the possibility of starring as the English singleton again - even though author Helen Fielding has yet to pen a third novel. She teases, "I don't know actually. A month ago, when I was desperately homesick, I would have said no. It's a good question though. When I was thinking about Edge Of Reason, I considered three things: Can it stand on its own as a movie? Is it a story worth telling? Does it need to be made?" And she has her own ideas about how Fielding could develop the character of Bridget: "Maybe Bridget could emerge as a character, like Lucille Ball's Lucy. Whether Lucy was living in a high rise in New York or a ranch house, I wanted to see what she was doing. I wanted to watch her and maybe there's some Bridget in there."
Royal news for Zellweger
[www.freep.com] January 29, 2004
Bizarre? No, Bazaar! Oscar nominee Renee Zellweger is on the cover of the Harper's fashion magazine's "New Fashion & Beauty Ideas" edition and here is the part on her beau, Detroit White Stripes rocker Jack White.
While the cover story was being written, White "called her from Australia and read aloud a three-page article about how she was now dating Prince Andrew. 'According to the article, I didn't even bother to call my boyfriend to end the relationship,' she scoffs.'Oh no, I just told the row of press on the red carpet that I was never going to speak to him again. It was news to me but maybe I'll be having Christmas at the palace this year." Really cute.
