Renée Zellweger seems to be going through quite a zen time right now – she’s happily single (or she’s just not naming names), content with her life and actually using her drawers instead of living out of suitcases.


To stay in her happy place, she says she won’t talk about who she’s dating, if anybody.


"I won’t. Because it’s dumb. It leads to nowhere good," she tells Glamour magazine in a new interview. "I let everybody else in the media do that for me. It takes the responsibility off my shoulders!"

So if she was looking for someone to share her life with, what would this mystery man be like? 


" I’m looking for an encyclopedia and a dictionary. A bit of the Boy Scouts Handbook. A person who is conscientious about the trail he leaves behind him," she reveals. "Love. Unconditional kindness. Basically, I’m looking for the qualities I revere in my friends."


Renée also says she doesn’t go for any certain type of guy, as long as he has certain qualities.


"I’m attracted to intelligence and creativity and passion – and not necessarily the romantic kind," she tells the magazine. "I want to learn from someone who is greedy for information and light and laughter and the whole world. Someone who celebrates their days and finds inspiration in what other people accomplish."

It might seem like a tall list for any one guy to live up to, but as Renée herself puts it, the single life is treating her well.

“If I’m going to give it up, it better be good – because I’m having fun!” she says.


In the meantime, Renée’s been staying out of the public eye, but that doesn’t mean she’s sitting at home doing nothing. 

"I’m working on different projects, but I’m not going anywhere any time soon. I’m not putting on other people’s clothes or living out of my luggage," she says. "I’m actually going into the bathroom to use my bathroom stuff – rather than to the suitcase where I usually keep it. I’m learning how to use a chest of drawers! I am determined to sit still long enough to get past the existential crap of the moment."


Keep it zen, Renée. Keep it zen.
