Renée Zellweger Says She’s the ‘Ex-Girlfriend’ of a Gay Man
If Vulture is unparalleled at getting beloved gay icons to say the darndest things, yesterday was no exception.
The entertainment website profiled Bridget Jones herself, Renée Zellweger, on the eve of her comeback. After taking six years off from acting, the actress is thought to be a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination for Judy, in which she plays the late icon Judy Garland in all her complicated glory. Her performance in the Rupert Goold-directed biopic drew raves at this weekend’s Telluride Film Festival, with many critics believing it to be the finest work of Zellweger’s already distinguished career.
Although the interview is worth reading in its entirety for Zellweger’s thoughts on fame, happiness, and speculation she’s had plastic surgery (she says she hasn’t), she drops that she relates to Garland in at least one way: They’ve both dated gay men.
“I’m an ex-girlfriend of [a gay man], I’m a best friend of, I’m a mentor of, I’m a student of, I’m a client of, a partner of, I’m a neighbor, I’m a boss, a collaborator,” she says, specifically referencing a recent question she’d been asked about her relationship to the LGBTQ+ community. “I’m a patient. I’m a customer. I’m a constituent!” – Source
