This bit of news will come as music to the ears of every Bridget Jones Diary fan – expect movie number three!
After months of Chinese whispers and curious speculation, the third installment of the blockbuster hit movie has been confirmed.
Hollywood actress Renee Zellweger has already accepted the role of clumsy Bridget, but she wont be guzzerling the pies and ice cream in a desperate bid to fatten up for the role this time.
In the past two movies, Renee ate her way though gallons of chocolate bars, burgers and milkshakes to ensure she fully looked the part for her British character, but this time she has opted for wearing a stylish fat suit instead.
The actress, 42, who gained over 2 stone to play size 14 singleton Bridget, is said to be too concerned of the lasting
effects yo-yo dieting may have on her body to repeat the binge eating.
“I had a panic attack with all the specialists talking about how bad this is for you long-term,” she said in recent interview.
A fats suit may sound like an excellent way to avoid piling on the pounds for tiny Renee, but wont her head and skinny neck look rather out of place in a fat suit? I think there will be a lot of make up and mirror time needed before she looks authentic.
The makers of the new trilogy are believed to be recruiting all original cast members, to make the film a blissful trip down memory lane, as well as focusing on Bridgets embarrassing and hilarious antics of course.
However, it is not known just yet whether Hugh Grant, 50, will return as bad boy Daniel Cleaver, but popular British actor Colin Firth, also 50, has agreed to return and bring love interest Mark Darcy to back life.
