Renée Zellweger made a name for herself by acting in films such as Bridget Jones’ Diary and more. She has also been with Ant Anstead for some time now. Now it seems Zellweger decided to open up about her nude scenes in the cinema world.
Zellweger recently claimed that a film producer urged her to drink alcohol on set early in her career. In a Harper’s Bazaar cover story, the star of The Thing About Pam explained that the incident happened before she was supposed to film nudist scenes.
There have been times I have been in, you know, on set, where a producer’s ready for me to go ahead and take my clothes off: ‘Here, drink this wine, ’cause then you’ll do it.’ And, you know, I’m not gonna take that wine, but I would like a phone. ’Cause I have a phone call I need to make right now.
Though no details regarding the film producer or the production were provided, Zellweger has previously expressed her aversion to filming nude scenes. The Oscar winner told Premiere in 2001 that she was against filming a topless sequence in the 1996 rom-com Jerry Maguire. Director Cameron Crowe didn’t want for the scene to be a sleazy, gratuitous boob shot, according to Zellweger.
Crowe, however, heard her pushback against the nudity, and the sequence was deleted from the draught. Zellweger claimed to The Boston Herald a few years later that she wasn’t entirely naked in a river bathing scene for Ed Harris’ 2008 western Appaloosa. During the moment, the actress wore those “little nudie things,” and she was first concerned about the shot.
