Rene Zellweger has come out and had her say about all the attention her face has got in the last couple of days.

If you haven’t heard about it, Zellweger appeared on the red carpet this week with her new, permanent face – sparking speculation that she’s had cosmetic work done on her features (see above).

In an interview with People she said: “I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows.

“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”

It hasn’t stopped cruel Twitter trolls from comparing the star to a waxwork from Madam Tussauds.
