The normally squinty eyed "It" girl of Hollywood surprised fans and critics with the reveal of her wide-eyed expression and youthfully firm face at Giorgio Armani's One Night Only event in New York City. Renee Zellweger is well known and loved for her roles in Jerry Maguire and the two Bridget Jones movies, where she is seen having the squinty eyed expression which set her apart from any other actress in Hollywood. Now with wide eyes and a stretched, firm face, it must be wondered if the obvious cosmetic alterations will make an impact on Zellweger's career.
While Renee Zellweger's face has all the signs of youth, it also has that frozen likeness of enormous amounts of Botox injections and possibly some kind of plastic surgery done to it. Her forehead, cheeks, and chin looked very stretched, which gave her the regenerated look of youth that all women want but because of this, her normally full lips now look very thin and the already flat hair of the starlet looks even flatter. Zellweger's new and youthful face came only days before she was to attend an event to honor the famous designer Giorgio Aramani. She was first seen with this rejuvenated look at the a screening of the movie Long Shot: The Kevin Laue Story.
Critics are very receptive of the work that Zellweger has had done, while her fans do not seem to like the new look of her youthfulness. Plastic surgeon, Anthony Youn, MD, tells Radaronline that "she looks great - even better than how she looked when she debuted on Jerry Maguire." A twitter post from a fan says "What on earth has happened to Renee Zellweger's face? It looks like she's COMPLETELY changed what she looks like". An online friend replied "Another plastic surgery nightmare. Horrific".
With such different reception from her critics to her fans, how can we know what will happen with her career in the future? Could this be her downfall? According to the fans, this is the end of her career and according to the critics this is a new beginning. Only time will tell us how her new-found face will reflect on her career.
