@Pearlee  She confirmed it in various interviews about the series.

"Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."

@Mz iMac  I don't know what "it" is. Confirmed what?  That she gained weight or wore a fat suit?

I saw briefly a promo for this yesterday and it looked like Renee put on weight again for this role as she did for Bridget Jones. Gosh, her weight has gone up and down even more than mine (but she's gotten paid for it). Tom Hanks has done this too for roles and I think he claims it responsible for his Type 2 diabetes.

.


@Pearlee  It would make sense that losing a lot and or gaining a lot would affect a persons health ,  diabetes plus other problems .  Not sure how money would be worth it,   At least not for me ,  but obviously for them😏   Have to say though loved all the Bridget Jones movies 😺

Years ago I watched an episode of Dateline about that woman, Pam Hupp. The episode was called Stranger Than Fiction (2016). Not sure if it's still available to watch but as I recall it was a strange story.

[According to Variety, Zellweger spent 80 minutes having prosthetics applied before hair, wardrobe and makeup: “We had cheek pieces that went all the way up to the temple,” Tuiten told the publication. “There was the chin piece, the nose piece, a neck piece that went all the way around.”

 

When people take a lot of medications their face can puff out and look bloated  which  wouldn't necessarily  happen just from weight gain.  And as others have said she wore body prosthetics too.
