Renée Zellweger is still saying she isn’t sure if there will be a third Bridget Jones’s Diary, but when reporters told her at the premiere of My Own Love Song at the Tribeca Film Festival what the plot was for the third film, Renée loved it!
On Thursday in NYC Renée chatted with reporters about her new film My Own Love Song — a role where she has to sing a Bob Dylan song in.
“Terrifying,” Renée said of what it was like to sing the legendary musician’s song. “Absolutely terrifying.”
Prepping for the song took a little work as it’s quite different from what she is used to.
“It’s a lot different,” Renée explained. “It’s meant to be an apology, it’s meant to be a lullaby. It’s a love song to a child.”
As for making her own album, which her director Olivier Dahan of this film is encouraging her to do, she’s not so sure.
“I don’t know,” she said. “I don’t know what you’d call it. It comes out sometimes, but I don’t know what you’d call it, and I don’t know if I’m ever going to share it with anybody.”
“My neighbors,” she laughed, “Who unfortunately don’t have a choice.”
But this isn’t the only role that Renée has immersed herself in.
Rumors are circulating that the actress will once again be transforming herself to take on the role of the beloved Bridget Jones.
So, is it true?
“Um, if there’s a third,” Renée said.
But, when told there is going to be a third she exclaimed, “No one tells me anything!”
Reporters told her that for third she has to be pregnant.
“Who told you that?” Renée laughed. “How do you know?”
“Oh you know Helen Fielding? You talked to Helen Fielding!” she exclaimed after reporters said the writer of Bridget Jones, Helen Fielding, is who told them that news. “I need to talk to Helen Fielding!”
So according to reports, the plot for the third film is that Bridget has sex with both Mark Darcy [Colin Firth] and then breaks up with him sort of.
“Tart,” she said.
And she sleeps with Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant] within the span of fives days, gets pregnant and doesn’t know who the father is.
So the story goes, you have sex with both Mark Darcy but then you break up with him kind of.
“Sounds good!” Renée said. “Sounds good!”
