7 Actors Hit By The “Oscar Curse”

Jessica Chastain is quite the “it” girl right now. Not only are her movies doing well at the box office, she recently won a Golden Globe and is nominated for an Oscar. But she should watch out: Award winners often go on to, shall we say, less than award-worthy projects. Celebuzz rounds up seven actors whose careers tanked, at least for a bit, after they won Oscars:

  • After Renee Zellweger won Best Supporting Actress for “Cold Mountain,” she made “one of the worst movies Hollywood made about women in the last two decades,”  ”Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.” “Cinderella Man,” “New in Town,” and “Case 39″ weren’t much better. Read more…

“Empire Records” Cast — Then & Now!

One year before Renee Zellweger became a household name thanks to ”Jerry Maguire,” she starred in the 1995 cult flick ”Empire Records.” To celebrate Renee’s 43rd birthday, we’re taking a look at how the cast of the movie has aged since its release … and what they’ve all been up to in the past 17 years.

Who Should Bradley Cooper Date Next?

I always thought there was something kind of sweet about Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger as a couple. When Bradley said last year, “I can’t say enough about [Renee]. I just love her. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her,” I kind of swooned. When they moved in together in the fall, I thought it was adorbs. But now—after two years of never officially saying they were a couple—the two have supposedly broken up. Which leaves them both single and ready to mingle. [People]

After the jump, who we think Bradley should date next. Keep reading »

Does Doing A Horror Movie Mean You’re Over?

Many of Hollywood’s heavyweights got their start in horror flicks: Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”), Johnny Depp (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”), Jennifer Aniston (“Leprechaun”), Leonardo DiCaprio (“Critters 3″). But while watching the really mediocre-looking trailer for Renee Zellweger‘s new movie “Case 39,” it was hard not to think, My, how far you’ve fallen. It made me start to wonder if doing a horror movie after you’ve already established yourself is career suicide. Is it the ultimate signal of your decline into obscurity? Let’s review the facts … Keep reading »

Bridget Jones’s Diary: The Musical!?

First, Bridget Jones’s Diary was a book. Then it was a movie. Then another movie. And, as rumor has it, another movie. We started shaking our heads when we heard about a possible Bridget Jones TV show. And now, alas, it’s going to be a musical. There’s no word yet on who will be playing Bridget—Renée Zellweger did prove she can sing in “Chicago.” We do know, however, that Lily Allen is doing music for the show. Plus, the director and choreographer of “Billy Elliot,” Stephen Daldry and Peter Darling, are also on board. The musical is in the workshop stage and could open in London’s West End as early as next year. Would you go see it if you took a trip across the pond? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Jewel Was Called The “Chubby Renee Zellweger”?

So apparently, back in the late ’90s when ladyfolk were buying up Pieces of You and you couldn’t escape the song “You Were Meant For Me,” people started referring to Jewel as the “chubby Renee Zellweger.” Now, I never heard anyone say this—but Jewel claims it was widespread and that this did serious damage to her self-esteem. “My feelings were so hurt by that, I ended up binging on an entire cake. Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it,” she said. “I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.” Eek!

Weekend Wear: Renee Zellweger’s Dinner And A Movie Look

Movie theaters and restaurants can feel downright frigid during the summer. That’s great for those who don’t want a high electricity bill but still want to cool off. It sucks, however, for those who get goose bumps from the slightest change in temperature. Renee Zellweger has the perfect outfit for dinner and a movie during a summer night. The ankle-length pants will keep legs toasty and the long-sleeves will do the same for the arms. Notice that the T-shirt is tissue-thin, though, so you won’t overheat while making the trek from the car or train to the door of your destination. Plus, those strappy heels will show off your sexy side. Get the details on how you can re-create Renee’s look after the jump, and don’t forget vibrant lipstick or nail polish for a pop of color.

Do You Cut Your Hair For The Summer?

We’re noticing a trend lately. As the temperature heats up across the country, celebrities are taking scissors to their hair. We already told you about Heidi Klum’s new bob that’s about six or seven inches shorter than her previous style. And model Agyness Deyn started rocking a boyish buzz cut recently. Surprisingly, Hayden Panettiere also shortened her hair to a Sharon Stone-esque cut that gives her an edgier look in the sea of blondes in Hollywood. Renee Zellweger took her chin-length bob to a choppier cropped ‘do, too.

As someone with waist-length hair, I can understand the appeal of going shorter in the summer months. But can’t these women simply put their hair in a bun or ponytail when it’s too hot? Maybe the desire for a change was more of a motivation than the temperature. We’ll never know, but the more important question is: Do you cut your hair for the summer? Keep reading »

Renee Zellweger Supposedly Pushing To Make Bridget Jones Skinny In The Next Flick

Over the summer, we got more than a little bit excited when we heard a rumor that “Bridget Jones 3″ was in the works. Sources say the movie is happening. But will Bridget be the adorable, slightly plump woman we identified with in the first flick? Or will one of her diets have worked, and she’ll now be rail thin? Supposedly, and the source here is the National Enquirer so take it with a grain of salt, Renee Zellweger is hard-core pressing for the later latter. According to the rag, she is nervous to put on weight for the role again—her doctors have told her it’s unhealthy. Also, Renee allegedly thinks the demise of her and Jack White’s relationship had to do with her extra pounds and doesn’t want to risk having it affect her relationship with Bradley Cooper. (Side notes: A) Does Jack White really get to talk about people putting on weight—Noel Gallagher recently described him as “Zorro on doughnuts.” B) Perhaps Bradley would like her a little curvier?) Renee supposedly asked producers if she could wear a fat suit rather than actually gaining the weight. And now she’s lobbying to avoid the issue altogether and play the role as she is. Producers, we BEG you not to let this happen. A skinny Bridget Jones just wouldn’t be the same. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
