About Renee Zellweger (1969 – )
Renee Zellweger was born on April 25th, the daughter of an Australia-raised, Swiss-born engineer, Emil Zellweger and a Norwegian born mother, Kjellfrid Zellweger, who was trained as a nurse and midwife. She was raised in Texas.

Renee Zellweger graduated from The University of Austin with a degree in English, but decided to pursue acting in Houston, working in theater and an independent film.

Then Zellweger moved to Los Angeles. Zellweger's performance in The Whole Wide World was noticed by Hollywood bigwig Cameron Crowe, who auditioned and hired her for Tom Cruise's supportive friend in Jerry Mcguire.

Renee Zellweger was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Brigit Jones' Diary, (2001), with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, as the sensual title character, searching for love.

In the 2002 musical, Chicago, Renee Zellweger plays murderess Roxie Hart, who competes with fellow death row inmate Catherine Zeta-Jones for media attention and a pardon. The film won six Oscars, including Best Picture.

Renee Zellweger won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Cold Mountain, with Nicole Kidman, as the Civil War refugee who works as a domestic for the love-struck Kidman.

In 2005, Zellweger played with Russell Crowe in the movie, Cinderella Man, as the wife of a prize fighter.

Speaking about Los Angeles, the Texan born Zellweger commented, "It opens your eyes in this town, it's amazing. It's taught me who I don't want to be."

Also commenting on being able to walk around in public unrecognized, she said, "It's great to be a brunette. I can sneak around downtown Los Angeles and nobody knows it's me. I went to Starbucks to get my coffee in the morning, and they said, 'What's your name?' I said, 'Oh, Renée.' Nobody even looked at me twice. My friends even walk past me. It's fantastic because I feel so free again."
