It seems the fair-haired size six Oscar-winning actress must put on some pounds to reprise her role as Bridget Jones. Below I have pasted the article. My question to all of you is this: Do you think the 20 donuts has got to be a misprint? I don't see how she could eat 20 donuts (I certainly couldn't) and plus 20 donuts would have to be at least 4,000 calories right there, wouldn't they? I bet it should read 2 donuts, although you will notice the article does mention 20 donuts twice, not once. If this is indeed the case, Zellweger is eating closer to 8,000 calories per day.
Renee Zellweger chubs up for 'Bridget Jones' sequel.
The things some actresses have to do to get a little respect in this town! Teeny tiny Renee Zellweger has the daunting task of chubbing up so she can once again portray big-boned London icon Bridget Jones. The goal? To go from a slender size six to a frumpy size 14 before shooting can even begin. That means she's got to down over 4,000 calories a day!
So what does a typical Bridget Happy Meal consist of? Breakfast boasts a Big Mac with fries, a large milkshake and scones, while lunch features 20 donuts with peanut butter, pizza, chips and yet another milkshake. To top the day off, Renee gets to feast on a large plate of spaghetti with meat sauce and potatoes. I guess another shake would just be overkill.
"It's easier for me this time around because I know what I have to do and how to do it," Renee told Hello! magazine. "I have to stick to it because I found out last time that one donut does not do a thing -- you have to eat 20 a day to get results."
