Renee Zellweger to Wear Fat Suit for Bridget Jones

Renee Zellweger has gotten super skinny in recent years, and we suppose she doesn’t want all her hard work to go to waste just for a movie.

AsHollyscoop previously reported, Renee has signed on to do the third installment of Bridget Jones’ Diary. But don’t’ expect her to eat her way through the role. This time, she’s cheating the pounds on with a fat suit.

A source tells Britain’s Reveal magazine, "Renee will be wearing a fat suit in the third film as it took her a while to lose the weight last time. She's also thinking about the effect quickly putting on and then losing 30 pounds has on her body."

While she’s probably right, we always like when actors do it the old fashioned way. Look at Matt Damon! He gained weight for his role in The Informant! and already looks back to his sexy self.

Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are also expected to return for the sequel. The film is rumored to be about Jones' quest to have a baby in her 40s.
