Although she admits that her past was a surprise to her, Renée Zellweger reveals in a new interview that she’s ready for the future.


“I never say never about anything, because I look back on my own personal history and it shocks me," she tells Marie Claire in the February issue. "If I would ever have said, ‘Oh for sure this is going to be in my future,’ most of my experiences would not have been on my list. So I don’t even bother thinking about it, because I’ve learned that there’s no anticipating that stuff.”


As for that "single" status looming over her head, Renée seems to be just fine on her own these days.


“I’m not single, I’m busy. That’s my line," she jokes, adding that her hectic schedule is enough for her right now. “The thing is, I’m away all the time (she has farmhouse on Long Island undergoing perpetual renovation and an apartment in New York). I suppose if I sat still long enough to get to know somebody beyond a dinner date, maybe. But I don’t feel like my life is empty or that I have to make something happen."


But even the Appaloosa star admits that fitting everything in could be a big task to tackle.


"I have projects to develop. I want to study American history and political science, live in an apartment in France, and fix my bad French. And is there really time for all of it? Last summer, when I said it wasn’t the right time for something I wanted to do, a friend asked, ‘How long are you going to live?’ ”


Good luck with all that, Renee!
