Liza Minnelli is slamming a report in Radar Online claiming that she and Renee Zellweger have been “bonding” on the set of the upcoming biopic of the Broadway icon’s mother, Judy Garland.
Taking to Facebook, Minnelli categorically denied that she and the “Bridget Jones” star (who is currently portraying the late “Wizard of Oz” star in the biopic “Judy”) have “taken a liking to each other” — because she says they’ve never met!

“I have never met nor spoken to Renee Zellweger,” wrote Minnelli on Facebook.
“I don’t know how these stories get started, but I do not approve nor sanction the upcoming film about Judy Garland in any way,” she added. “Any reports to the contrary are 100% Fiction.”
Tellingly, the disputed article seems to have mysteriously vanished since Minnelli posted her Facebook message, with the link to Radar story no longer working.
Meanwhile, production on “Judy” began in March, with the film’s official Twitter account sharing a photo of an unrecognizable Zellweger embodying Garland.
