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

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

Love her new look. I think she is just adorable!

mickey on

She looks happy, not like her usual sourpuss look. The hairdo is cute.

R on

Short hair is fun and liberating. She looks cute.

Laurie on

She’s looking old and a little rough…

Aja on

Jeez. Not looking so hot these days, Renee.

Jennifer on

Yeah I agree, even though the new love looks like its agreeing with her she still does look a little old and rough around the edges!

Jennie on

I love her haircut and she has a gorgeous boyfriend as well. Lucky girl.

Frederika on

I wouldn’t say she looks old, she just looks “older”. that’s because just like everyone, she’s aging. but i acutally thinks she looks good and keeps herself in shape (maybe just a bit too thin)

Tigs on

Hate her hair, her face just isnt pretty enough to pull it off.

Bella on

I think the hair is ok BUT the person it is on is NOT cute at all…..

Brenda on

LOVE IT! It’s so CUTE!

BJ on

“Jeez. Not looking so hot these days, Renee.”
I agree… golf500.com – Mother’s Day

Donna on

She looks like Lindsay Lohan!

Lotusdream on

I love it! She’s always looked cute and sassy with a short cut. I always had very long hair all my life to look beautifull and lushious… then after my divorce in 1999 i got a very short boy cut but cute and feminine. I look so adorable I’d never grow my hair long again. AND it’s so easy to care for!

Heidi on

I love short hair, it has to fit the person’s personality!!! I had a pixie cut for years and wore those cute barrettes and got soooo many compliments. Renee looks as sweet as always. The only thing with short hair is you have to cut it every 4 weeks. So cute!!!

Shannon on

What the heck happened to her? She looks so weird. Why is she always squinting? She was so cute and normal in Jerry McGuire.

mike on

what a sweet heart!!! She ALWAYS looks good and she is supposed to be one of the nicest people around….she’s a legend of kindness in the Hamptons!!!

Jon on

Good to hear, I like her new hair-cut!

Teresa on

Looks like a dining room haircut!! YIKES!!

Diane Carder on

She looks adorable. Wonder what the critics look like—not good I bet

Elda on

sassy n gorgeous, i like it.

Lisa on

“She just grabbed chunks of it, twisted it and shredded.” Unfortunately, that’s exactly what it looks like. There’s no blending/structure to it. The same effect could be achieved sticking a bowl atop one’s head and cutting around the edges, then shaking it out. Not exactly a professional look. Nothing against Renee, though–love her!

Kendra on

I’m sorry, but it looked like she hacked at her hair with hedge clippers in the dark. Worse than the haircut I got from my sister when she was drunk!

So sad that such a homely girl is stuck with such a horrid haircut.

JDA on

I wish that someone would tell Renee that she has very harsh features/a harsh look and that she should ALWAYS try to make herself pretty and soft (e.g., earrings, makeup, curls in her hair) The new haircut makes her look even more harsh and manly looking.

Mel on

I think she looks likes a 50 yr old boy

SusiQ on

Adorable. If my hair was cut in the dining room it would look like. . ..well, like it was cut in a dining room

barbara on

that haircut, and the mischievous look in her eye, all I can see is Tink! Looks good!

christy on

She looks good.

jan on

She is so cute. Great haircut. Some people, like her, can look good with any haircut. I am a stylist and her cut is very stylish indeed.

I have read so many things about her over the years. How she stopped and talked to a girl who was crying by the side of the sidewalk,etc. It clearly was not a pap set up either. Heard other good things also. Probably why some people find her boring in Hollywood – not so into herself. God bless her!

ladybug on

GORGEOUS! I LOVE Renee. She also has the most gorgeous legs of any one!
Renee, don’t sell yourself short……..you’re beautiful and wonderful and gorgeous. YOU should be the ONE making the rules in the relationship.
Why not try dating someone outside of the movie or music industry? Someone that would love & care for you for who you are?

Don’t sell yourself short!!!!!!!!!!!

maya on

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

my thoughts on

Are you serious??????? This hair cut is just awwwwwwful…Should have gone to a professional or something..this just isn’t right.

JEN on

just as creepy and odd as she already is………….

JEN on

just as odd and weird as she already is……….she used to be so cute and understandable

Danielle on

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.

Danielle on

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.

Get serious, y’all! She’s adorable!

JC on

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

Patricia Moore on

Thank god she is her own person and the negative comments above won’t mean a thing. She’s simply lovely!

KAREN on

She looks lovely. Don’t be so hard on people, SHE never said she was the most beautiful person, but she certainly doesn’t have anything wrong with the way she looks. Everybody has something that is nice about the way they look. There are a lot of beautiful people in our world!

Deborah Eliades on

Rough around the edges ??? I think not!
When I hit her age , I hope I look so gorgeous!!!
She runs several miles a day, and is a major hardbody!!!! In my opinion, Renee is the ultimate in Hollywood Glamour. Need I say more??

Debbie on

I really like her new haircut/style! I think mature women such as Rene can look even more attractive & sexy in a shorter hairstyle than they did with their hair a longer length.
