Renée Zellweger Says She Doesn’t Need to Have Kids to Be Happy

Unlike her character Bridget Jones, Renée Zellweger is not sure is she sees children in her future.

During a recent interview with Extra, the actress was asked if she was “craving” having a baby since she plays a pregnant woman in the upcoming Bridget Jones’s Baby, and she admitted she hadn’t really thought about it.

“I’ve never really thought like that about anything in my life, really,” she said before adding,  “I’ve always been kind of open to whatever may be, curious to see what’s next. I’ve never been that deliberate about my life and the things that I would require in order to be happy.”

Even though the actress doesn’t need children to be happy, she did confess that playing a pregnant Jones, who is trying to figure out who the father of her child is, made her feel like it was ok to live your life how you want it and not how others expect you to.

‘She makes it OK to be imperfect,” Zellweger said. “She makes it OK to be human at a time when we feel probably that there’s a lot of social pressure to be a certain way, to look a certain way, to have established certain things in your life by a certain phase in your life experience. She’s sort of challenging those notions.”
