Renee Zellweger and John Stamos are dating now, apparently


I’m not gonna lie at all here — when I heard the recent divorce announcement from Jack White and Karen Elson, my first thought was “Renee’s single! Make haste, Jack, and get back together with her.” Unfortunately, Jack has not followed my hopeful advice, and neither has Renee Zellweger; instead, she’s taken to nursing her post-Bradley Cooper wounds in a very undecidedly rock’n'roll manner with the likes of … John Stamos? No kidding.

Has Bridget Jones found her new Mr. Darcy … in Uncle Jesse?

Renee Zellweger and John Stamos went to Disneyland together on Monday, two separate witnesses tell Us Weekly. The 42-year-old actress and Stamos, 47, “were having a great time laughing and dancing as they walked from one ride to another,” one witness says.

Zellweger and the Glee guest star “looked really close and both very happy.”

The duo “were trying to stay under the radar.” Stamos wore a white t-shirt and black baseball cap. “We recognized him immediately and asked him for a picture,” the fan says. “[He and Renee] were both very nice! She was definitely more shy.”

Not aware that Stamos’ companion was an Oscar-nominated actress, the fans asked Zellweger to take their picture with the Full House hunk. “We actually didn’t recognize her until they were leaving, and she handed my phone back to us!”

Another group spotted the duo (escorted by a tour guide) outside the Splash Mountain ride — and similarly asked an incognito Zellweger to take their photo with Stamos.

“She struggled a little bit trying to get a picture,” the second observer tells Us. “We didn’t even recognize it was Renee until later!”

Zellweger split from Bradley Cooper in March 2011 after less than two years together. Stamos was married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005.

Well, this is surprising news indeed and arrives inauspiciously on the tails of renewed Bridget Jones 3 gossip, but these two pieces of news surely cannot be connected, right? Still, I find it strange that Renee would go for John Stamos, who is admittedly handsome but in a very 1980s sort of way. As for Renee, she’s much more of a 1990s sort of girl. Still, perhaps these two have enough in common to make a go for it. Both of them have suffered through enough of the broken relationship thing lately and deserve a fresh start, no?

Note by Kaiser: LaineyGossip was actually the first outlet to report this, I think she deserves credit for her scoop!

    Yep, he must be gay.

  2. katnip says:

    He has talked a lot about being a father. I wonder about him dating someone in their forties (not knocking older women but age matters).

    I would imagine him dating someone younger. He is 47 and no kids. If he wants them he better get on it. I know some men don’t care about having kids later, but why wait so long..

    I had no idea he and Rebecca were married that long and no kids. Then she marries Jerry and pop.. twins.

    well it happens that way sometimes.

  3. brin says:

    What happened to John Mayer? Oh well, anyone is better than Mayer. I like John Stamos & Renee, just not sure I like them together….guess time will tell.

  4. OriginalGracie says:

    I am really disappointed in John Stamos that he would date this woman.

    She rubs me the wrong way at all times.
    I don’t like her acting and, in my book, anyone who would date Bradley Cooper for longer than 5 minutes is just wrong.

    Dammit Renee, stick to guys I don’t like! John Stamos is on my Hot List and you are getting your cooties all over him!

  5. Dorothy#1 says:

    I thought the same thing about her and Jack White. I have a serious love for him and I liked them together. That being said I LOVE this! I hope it is true. I think John Stamos is so freaking hot and I was sad for him when Rebecca dumped him!!!!

  6. Maritza says:

    I find him so handsome and sweet,he does not look 47. After being married to Rebecca Romijn I would think he would like to be with someone younger and more beautiful.

  7. Love says:

    He must be gay to date HW’s beard No.1

  8. gee says:

    I support this. And hopefully she’ll get out of her exercise clothes.

  9. francesca says:

    I feel like his handsomeness offsets her prune face in such a way that they each become unremarkable.

  10. really says:

    He looks jolly for 47! Great genes.

    I think the two should make a go of it, and jolly on!

  11. fabgrrl says:

    John Stamos is handsome in any decade.

  12. Happymom says:

    Oh man-we were at Disneyland on Sunday-I would have loved to spot them!!! Anyway-he’s always been adorable. She’s okay.

  13. kiko says:

    come on you guys!!john stamos gay??yeah renee is a good beard but maybe she is taking some time of the beard business!john stamos can’t be gay! :(

  14. poopie says:

    i have had the hate on for this woman since she dissed her home state calling all texans trailer trash. stay away rene, we don’t want YOU here.

  15. eternalcanadian says:

    I didn’t even know Bradley and Renee were kaput!

    I doubt John would even consider dating Renee. He’s made it pretty clear he wants children (I always wondered why he and Rebecca never had kids in 7 years of marriage) and let’s face it, Renee’s baby factory is closed.

  16. Jana says:

    Nah. Since his divorce his house has been a revolving door of young beauties. He had a younger girlfriend recently he had been with for over a year and they were living together. He says he wants kids but he plays the playboy too much to really seem to want it, at least up to now. Renee will never last with him. She needs to stop with the guys that are prettier than her and be more realistic.

  17. CooCooCatchoo says:

    Man, he’s a hottie :) . I always wondered why his career didn’t do better. He’s gorgeous and can act. If he debuted in the 90s instead of the 80s, I think he would have had a better shot. I don’t know why – I think the Internet buzz would have boosted his career. Instead he’s kinda a poor Man’s Clooney, isn’t he? If he does Dancing With The Stars, I think it’ll mean the death of his relationship with squinty. She’s A list, and I think it would be humiliating for her. Can u imagine the ribbing she’d take from her snobby A list friends? But I hope they’re having a good time now. I imagine he’s great in the sack!

  18. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    It is refreshing that John Stamos is dating a lady in his age cohort, I would imagine the conversations would be much better this way. And perhaps he no longer wants children or is willing to adopt.

  19. madpoe says:

    Aw man, the milk in my coffee just curdled! Wow or tragic? Love John, but Lemon Puss. Really?

  20. Tierra says:

    He’s one of those I always wondered “whatever happened to”. I like Reneee, I can see them together.

  21. Rhiley says:

    I agree that John Stamos is very handsome and actually has a really good personality when he is not drunk on Autstrailian talk shows. I think somebody should write a half hour comedy show starring Stamos and Kevin Bacon as brothers, working in a band, and both are family guys. It would kind of be two and a half men meets full house

  22. ladybert62 says:

    He is very attractive; she is not. But I do like that dress in the top photo.

  23. Thea says:

    NOOOOOOOO….These means several things. He is gay and she is his beard. Or she is gay and he is her beard. Or he has horrible taste in women. NOOOO….I cant stand Squinty. She has ruined her face, plus she has no personality. And he is Greek, and she doesnt like food. So its doomed already….He is too hot for her. She needs to date Mel Gibson, she already has the pucker going and that would get him the elusive *J he has been screaming for….

  24. GoofPuff says:

    Another romance manufactured by their publicists. Yawn.

  25. Sloane Wyatt says:

    We all see through it. IMO, they’re both gay. Meh

  26. Gwen says:

    I was hoping (with Lainey) that he and Aniston would do a hot Greek hookup :(

  27. bugsy says:

    *rolls eyes* She grates my nerves BIG TIME. I’ve liked her acting in a couple of things, but she honestly seems so pathetic. That Bradley Cooper stuff was seriously the kiss of death for her. I can’t help but feel like she’s grasping at straws to try and desperately stay relevant. And not to be incredibly bitchy, but she always acts as though she’s one of the hottest things to grace the planet, but she looks like she spent several years being pickled in lemon juice. I seriously wouldn’t pick on her looks, but I can’t stand it when women act so friggin’ stuck on themselves when the reality is they’re not that great.

  28. Gossip Owl says:

    A perfect fit!
    I don’t agree with Lainey, for the simple reason that Aniston likes them young and I think she’s trying to figure out how to make the biological clock go off. Despite all the drama, I actually like Jen with Justin and I hope they work out.
    Renee on the other hand does not seem interested in having a baby, so I think that John and Renee will do well because I can see both of them being on the same wavelength on the family issues. I can see the two of them adopting kids together but I don’t think Renee has any interest of having any of her own (for whatever reason). John has said he wants kids but I think that he just wants to have a family, I doubt it would matter if the kids were actually his or not.
    I think he did go through the mid-life crisis younger girl phase. I think he realized he can’t handle the immaturity of a 20 something woman and wants someone close to his own age. Renee seems to fit the bill perfectly. I hope this is true and I wish them luck.

  29. JM says:

    John Stamos is most definately NOT gay!!!! He’s a womanizer and hopefully will hit it & quit it or pass completely. Seriously John, you’re way to hot to waste your time with Chipmunk Cheeks. What is that thing she does with her mouth when she poses? It grates my nerves. Never thought she was a great actress and to label her A-list shows how much talent Hollyweird is lacking.

  30. Dana M says:

    This is a total set-up, PR stunt! Going to Disneyland…total public place. Why do they have to show the world they are dating? Is someone bearding?

  31. kibbles says:

    She looks surprisingly good in that top photo. The dress is gorgeous. She always looks so malnourished, but is she starting to get back to normal weight again?

    Anyway, I like Renee as an actress and she seems like a smart and independent woman. However, she is far from being a classic beauty. I’m surprised Stamos would go for her other than the fact that she is a much bigger star than him. I hope these two last. Renee doesn’t seem to have good luck when it comes to relationships. She’s not that young anymore but I think she is at an age where she can probably still have one or two kids either through natural conception or in vitro.

  32. Camille says:

    I like the idea of these 2 together. Although doesn’t John want kids? Renee doesn’t want any apparently, so I wonder if these 2 will last very long.
    (And I know this will sound awful, but it would be such a shame if he didn’t pass along his DNA and make some really cute kids lol)

    I much prefer John with Renee than Aniston! :D

  33. april says:

    I like them both. Looks wise, to me they each look as attractive as the other.

  34. Atrium says:

    I just saw Ms. Zellweger at 7 am going into a supermarket on a Sunday. She looked like a sculpted scarecrow. I love her movies, but makeup is miraculous. Figure is fabulous, but she has the face of a 60 year old. She looks much older in person. That said, John Stamos is cute but he’s still gray underneath that color job.

  35. Kris says:

    I like Renee actually, but she has had ALOT of Hollywood romances and plenty of opportunities to get married, yet she is still on the dating curcuit. I hear she is wanting kids-she better get on it soon and I really dont know why she would wait this long. Bradley Cooper seems like a really nice guy and I liked him and Renee together. John Stamos, he is pushing 50 and I dont get why some guys wait so darn long to become fathers- its selfish and he and BC arent willing to give up their bachelor lifestyles. The clock is ticking and it just goes by faster as you get older. If John is looking for someone ‘perfect’ he’s going to be waiting a long time.

  36. Natasha says:

    Are you kidding me!! Yes he does look 47. He’s okay, but he isn’t hot anymore.
