Renee Zellweger Gets a Hair Do-Over -- in the Dining Room

04/23/2010 at 01:41 PM ET


It was more than just a fresh spring hairstyle that Renée Zellweger had in mind when she chopped off her hair into a dramatic pixie do. “It was sort of a job hazard sort of thing,” Zellweger told PEOPLE at the Tribeca Film festival premiere of her film My Own Love Song last night, referring to the tress-stress that actresses undergo to change their looks with each new role. “It’s not worth keeping after a while,” she explained. “It had to go. Shed the old.” To get the job done right, she turned to hair-cutter to the stars Lori McCoy-Bell. “She works on sets, cuts hair in trailers on films,” Zellweger says. “She cut it in the dining room. She was very brave. She just grabbed chunks of it, twisted it and shredded.” The end result left the Oscar winner smiling. “She did a great job—I was just really glad that the other stuff was gone.” –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester, reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

Not a fan of hers (except for Cinderella Man), but that’s a great cut for her. Very chic & flattering!

Doesn’t matter haircut or long, I love to see Renee anyway. I have seen her in Chicago and since, I love her so much. She is such a cute actress, she is so cute in this movie. I like to see Catherine and Queen L., too, because both of them are sympa, but Renee is the cutest in this movie.

I’m a fun of hers because she’s cute and because I’m a fun of myself. I used to look like Renee when I was very young and a couple of years after my 20s. Renee, has a lovely personality. I love to see her always.

She’s just not attractive, hair change or not. She always looks like she’s just eaten a lemon.
