Renée Zellweger is opening up about the importance of self-care in her life.
The “What/If” star is featured in the new issue of Town & Country and she talks about everything from her new series to balancing work with health and taking on the role of Judy Garland.
On doing her first ever TV series, Zellweger says, “Everything was a surprise, which was a really interesting new way of working for me — slightly uncomfortable.”
Meanwhile, the 50-year-old actress has discovered the value of self-care, explaining, “I’m better at taking care of myself first. I didn’t recognize that that was an option. Now, it’s a priority. [Acting] doesn’t have to be at the expense of my health and my life.”
Zellweger is also set to star in an upcoming film about the life of classic Hollywood star Judy Garland.
Asked about Garland’s untimely death due to an overdose and whether she might have faired better in modern Hollywood, Zellweger says, “Perhaps,” adding, “And perhaps I don’t know. Because then you see stories like Amy Winehouse and you just wonder why?”
