What Happened To Renee Zellweger’s Face?


On Sunday Renee Zellweger made her way down the red carpet at the 85th Academy Awards ceremony, in a stunning gold metallic floor length gown. And while we thought she looked stunning, she certainly didn’t look like her usual self. The talented 43-year old actress has become know for her cute and quirky looks, which is highlighted by her squinty smile and puckered up lips, yet Renee looked like a completely different person at The Oscars! Is it just us, or has Renee somehow been transformed into Christina Applegate’s long lost twin?!

We are not the only ones to notice how different Renee Zellweger looks recently and she has been the subject of many articles (and tweets) this week claiming that she has over-done the Botox. After comparing recent photos of Renee to photos through out the years, it seems pretty obvious that there has been a transformation of her face, and it certainly is not natural. Renee has been using Botox for years, but Botox is not behind her suddenly wider-than usual eyes and slimmed down jawline. It appears that Renee has had a blepharoplasty (eye lift) to smooth out bags and wrinkles and to open up her smaller than average eyes. It is also possible that the transformation of her face shape is due to facial contouring, which involves liposuction under the cheekbones and around the jawline to better define the cheeks and give the face a more heart-shaped look.

Renee Zellweger then and now:

In our opinion, Renee looks pretty after having plastic surgery, but she doesn’t look much like herself anymore, which is a bit strange. What do you think of Renee’s new look? Mid-life crisis or just your typical celebrity tune-up?

    I think she looks more like Juliette Lewis

    That 2007 photo looks like she’s got a load of fillers in, though. Maybe a photo from farther back would be better.

    I think she simply had her eyelids done. Maybe some Botox.

    If you read up on the changes our faces go through as we age, one of them is the face gets less plump which could account for her face being more contoured now that she’s in her 40’s. It could also be that she was misusing substances in her 20’s which made her look puffier and she finally kicked them. It happened to my sister. Once she got off the alcohol and prescription pills, her face got lot less puffy and became streamlined. I do think she had her eyes done though.

    When a person goes under the knife, s/he can never be reassured of the results. Number one, have a great doctor with great credential. One should always see his/her work and check on possible lawsuits against the plastic surgeon. I have seen disastrous result and I have seen people that looked so great but you can’t quite put your finger on what it was that brought forth a look of being on a wonderful vacation.

    What many may not be aware of is that Renee suffers from Rosacea – a skin disorder famous for characteristic redness. This disease can also have a strong neurogenic component to it where the face burns and feels like acid was applied. There is no cure, only treatment. One of the most recommended treatments is IPL – intense light therapy, that is FAMOUS for altering the fat contours of one’s face as it destroys overreactive blood vessels often dramatically changing ones appearance while offering some relief for burning, tingling and what can be permanent redness and discomfort. I am wondering if Ms. Zellweger may have had this IPL treatment for this increasingly common disease and treatment. Another recommended therapy is Botox. I wish comments about her personal appearance on some of the other message boards were a little more kind and less judgmental. While I can agree she looks quite different, she still looks great and in the end it is really none of our business.

    Too bad she had so much done.. I would never know its Renee if it hadn’t been pointed out. I always thought she had a very unique beauty. She still a pretty lady, but her real self was gorgeous.
