Renee Zellweger is looking pregnant in Berlin


I don’t think I would have noticed this without HuffPo pointing it out, but Renee Zellweger might have a mild case of pregnancy. HuffPo says she looks like she‘s “harboring a mini Bradley Cooper in her womb” and they wonder how long it will take for the “REVENGE PREGNANCY” tabloid headlines to start. Now, I’m not one of those people (or bloggers) who is constantly on “bump watch”. I notice sometimes when a star looks a little heavier, or her boobs look bigger, or her face looks more “filled out”. But I’ve been wrong before – several months ago, I convinced myself that Halle Berry was pregnant again. I still think she really looked like it, but she wasn’t. My point? Just because I think Renee is looking a little knocked up, doesn’t mean it’s so.


Anyway, Renee looks pretty and just a tad heavier, which is a really good thing, seriously. Even if this whole “oh my God, she’s preggers” thing turns out to be Renee simply eating a large breakfast, it’s still good news. Because the girl needs all of the big breakfasts she can get. And honestly, this is the healthiest she’s looked in a while. Now, if we are breaking news and she actually is pregnant, then good for her. Congratulations to Renee and I hope she and Bradley are the romance for the ages.

Renee in Berlin because she’s one of the seven on the Berlin Film Festival’s jury. She’ll be there for more than a week, so I’m hoping Renee brought lots of figure-hugging outfits for us to dissect. I don’t know for sure who designed this, but it looks to me like Carolina Herrera, who is probably Renee’s favorite designer.

As for the potential baby-daddy, Bradley Cooper is in LA right now and he already announced to the press that he was spending Valentine’s Day with his mommy: “My mother is coming to visit and we are going to have a nice Valentine’s Day.” Uh-oh. If I was writing for In Touch Weekly, this motherf-cker would write itself: “Bradley storms out of love nest, screams ‘I never wanted to be a father this way… you can spend Valentine’s Day, alone, in Berlin!’ Renee bursts into tears, resilient, declaring to her friends, ‘I’ll have the baby in Munich, damn it!’”

    looks to me like she’s a woman…

  2. happymom says:

    That dress is pretty tight, the fabric is unforgiving and she does look a little more filled out. She also always poses in such bizarre ways I think that’s why her stomach is slightly protruding.

  3. Beth says:

    I must be blind because I don’t see anything that says pregnant. Don’t say hand on stomach because people do that all of the time and they aren’t pregnant.

  4. Justalark says:


    ~ Renee’s dress may be “designer,” but it is unflattering and way too snug

    ~ The limp pageboy hairdo is way too casual–inappropriate for such a formal gown

    ~ Her lack of accessories adds to the “got ready in five minutes” look

    ~ She’s starting to look like Madonna with those grisly and veiny arms…Not a good thing!

  5. bella says:

    She probably ate a real meal, instead of her usual lemon water (or whatever other non-caloric thing she ingests). Or maybe Aunt Flo from Redlands is visiting. I doubt she’s preggers, but if she is, and that’s what she wants, more power to her.

  6. LolaBella says:

    She’s not pregnant; that’s a food-baby. LOL.

    I think the fact that the dress is super-tight is what’s emphasizing her lower stomach. Look at how tiny her actual waist is.

    She looks healthy and not as emaciated as she usually does.

    Also, that dress is gorgeous.

  7. JulieNewmar says:

    It’s gas … and she’s fugs.

  8. embertine says:

    First of all, her stomach is still flatter than the majority of women’s in the Western world. Secondly, please tell me it’s the light that is making her arms look that veiny?

  9. Kelly says:

    Christ, I look like that after a couple beers.

  10. Toe says:

    Maybe she’s having her period. Your belly bloats a lil during those time.

  11. gloaming says:

    I wish she’d use a different designer once in a while.
    I know she has exclusivity with Herrera but she should shake things up a bit.

    I’m with Toe on the preggers rumour. her ‘monthly visitor’ has arrived.

  12. Erin says:

    I hate bumpwatch more than anything. Maybe it’s because i’m a childless bitch, but I just think it’s the most insulting, offensive thing ever. I think celebrities are assholes, but I feel for any woman who lives in fear of eating an actual meal because she might be called pregnant by a tabloid.

  13. Lenore says:

    Erin – seconded. Christ, all these years I’ve been looking at Renee Zellweger thinking sadly, “This woman has never known the pleasure of a mozzarella stick or a Pringle”.

    Now, because this woman WHO IS STILL EXTREMELY THIN has stepped out in public with a convex stomach like any normal human being who eats – I’m not even gonna call it a bump because it’s not – someone’s saying OMG IS SHE PREGNANT?!

    FFS. I don’t particularly like her but give the poor woman a break.

  14. padiddle says:

    Erin – It’s like you read my mind! No wonder they are all stick thin, terrified that if they eat even a little or have the tiniest bump, they will be called pregnant.
    Also, I think Renee just needs to go up a size in her dress. Lots of actresses are guilty of being afraid to go up a size and thus ending up looking fat in a too tight dress.

  15. monkey says:

    I don’t like her, she always looks like she sucked a lemon REAL hard!

  16. crash2GO2 says:

    I think she looks really lovely – definitely more curvy than usual. More in the boob area, and a bit of a pooch. *For what ever reason*

  17. Maritza says:

    She’s probably bloated because she has her period, that’s all!

  18. isabelle says:

    She lifts too many weights – better watch out or she’ll get Madonna-arms.

  19. dee says:

    That doesn’t look like a baby bump at all, more like some bloating showing thru in that dress. I actually feel bad for some of these actresses with the way every inch of them is analyzed for either weight gain or pregnancy. I have a flat stomach in the morning but by the evening mine is just like hers if not bigger just from eating, drinking or that dreadful monthly cycle. I would have pregnant rumors every evening if i were a celebrity.

  20. Ria says:

    I would tend to agree, but look – in the first two photos, she’s touching her stomach. I’m newly pregnant – six and a half weeks – and I’m not telling yet. I have the same puffiness that I’m trying to hide, and I keep touching it.

  21. Shelly says:

    Maybe she’s gassy. That would explain her facial expressions! LOL No, she doesn’t look pregnant. I had a hard time taking my eyes off her face; she used to be pretty but now she looks all stiff and frozen. Sad.

  22. CadieBelle says:

    She does not look pregnant – her dress is just not complimentary – and if that is a “fat” tummy – you are crazy

  23. Really? says:

    Ditto what Justalark said. *ugh*

  24. gekkca says:

    She may be actually touching her stomach to hide the fact she is bloated. I know I am totally self-conscious about my post-baby belly and I am constantly trying to hide it which draws attention to it. If I knew that everyone was scrutinizing my every curve and I ate an extra burger or had my period, I would be trying to hide it too. Just a thought. Not that she needs too, the woman could use a burger…

  25. LindyLou says:

    Didn’t I hear somewhere that there will be another Bridget Jones movie?? Maybe she beginning to bulk up for that?? Not that I think she looks heavy what-so-ever! I’m thinking its most likely the Red Tide too.

  26. Erin says:

    I heard she was going to wear a fat suit for the next Bridget Jones – something about “not wanting to put her body through that”, which we all know is bs since her body looks like it gets pretty abused on a regular basis.
    Lenore, agreed – I feel like she always looks miserable because she doesn’t know the pleasure of junk food! (or food period).

  27. VV says:

    I tend to believe it may have something to do with Bridget Jones myself. Or who knows maybe she’s just happy and relaxing her “snap face routine”, now that she’s with someone :) Her face was looking all kinds of busted for a while there but she looks a lot better in that pic.

  28. Victoria says:

    Hey if THATS pregnate then Ill be expecting a baby in about 6 months! Stop with this stupid BABY BUMP watch!

  29. fizXgirl314 says:

    what’s wrong with her face?

    it’s also a little strange that she has a pooch and yet no body fat…

  30. Tia C says:

    Looks like normal womanly curves to me. I don’t know what happened to her. She was cute in Jerry Maguire, but since then her looks have gotten… odd. She’s definitely gotten squintier in the eyes, and her arms look like she shares trainers with Madonna. Not an attractive look. This dress is soft and feminine and clashes with the hard edges of her bony shoulders and blunt-cut hair. The whole look just doesn’t mesh.

  31. RhymesWithSilver says:

    If that’s pregnant, then I’m due with twins any second. Could it be that Renee Zellweger simply has, I dunno, organs? Like ovaries and intestines. Where are those supposed to go inside that scrawny little frame of hers?

  32. Novaraen says:

    Ha….stupid bumpwatch. Renee probably either has her monthly visitor or she ate a cheeseburger the night before OR….wait for it….she’s a healthy woman with a womanly bump where most all women have bumps. *gasp*….i know it’s hard to believe.


  33. hatsumomo says:

    Srsly, its called a girdle. They’re cheap, easy to use and no one knows its there and they go a long way to holding in that little bit a belly from eating right before an event. Or is that not the stylish term to use now? I have one, and I dont have abs to bounce a quarter on, so I use it every time I’m going to wear a really clingy dress or jersey. I’d rather have one on than walk around with the bottom of my belly hanging out.

  34. Allison says:

    OMG lol she looks like shes showing it off! Hands on belly with a huge grin, hahaha. Thats adorable, if its true im really happy for her! And she looks fantastic. A nice, thin weight but not scary anorexic looking.

  35. bros says:

    im so over her stupid carolina herrera fishtail dresses, bad hair, no accessories, cold looking skin, emaciation, and bad facemaking. she is so boring and anorexic.

  36. skibunny says:

    I think she looks really good in the first photo and I love the dress!

  37. oxa says:

    She is just CONSTIPATED, that’s it.

  38. Roberta says:

    Actually HuffPo said this:

    We don’t think Renee Zellweger is harboring a mini Bradley Cooper in her womb, but she showed up at the Berlin Film Festival, for which she is a juror, in a satin dress that did something funny to her midsection.

  39. Hannah says:

    Please, I look like that after I eat an apple.

    Also, without wanting to sound like a Perez commenter I do genuinely get the feeling that Bradley and Renee are gay? No?

  40. cara says:

    maybe she just has gas,or ibs or bloating.
    the bump watch in the tabs is the worse,she looks just fine

  41. gg says:

    It’s a gorgeous satin dress and she looks beautiful in it. Satin gives everybody a tummy.

  42. snapdragon says:

    she looks like she’s retaining water. we have similar body types and that’s how i look right before my period.

    sorry if that was TMI…

  43. yadira says:

    Maybe it’s just me but this chick looked better when doing her Bridgets diary role. Her type of body and facial features looked softer with a little weight on her. Now she looks more like a preying mantis with those long spider like arms and chiseled face

  44. Cinderella says:

    She may be about to birth something, but it ain’t a baby and it ain’t coming from the womb.

  45. EMV says:

    She just looks like she needs some SPANX… Although she looks super skinny the pooch is kind of weird, but i think it’s the dress. Give that girl a cheeseburger.

  46. Kat says:

    I like her, but those arms scare me. She’s starting to head toward Madonnaville.

  47. Seer says:

    @ fizXgirl314 who wrote: “what’s wrong with her face?”

    I read somewhere that she had work done, and that’s probably why her face looks strained when she smiles and is attempting to talk. It looks almost painful, doesn’t it?

    Also, her dress is beautiful. She looks beautiful in the first two pictures. I love her sense of style. She has elegant taste.

    If she’s pregnant, I don’t see it.

  48. archiepelago says:

    She likely hadn’t eaten all day and was bloating. The hands are on the tummy while the inner voice is saying “oh please God, don’t let me squeak one out on the red carpet”.

    Women’s body types run the gamut. I have a flat belly and no arse but all my weight goes on my thighs, hips. My trainer has the skinniest legs and a tight bum but she says she cannot get a flat belly like mine if she were to do a million sit ups.

  49. Aleisha says:

    It’s probably just PMS – premenstrual bloating.

  50. GatsbyGal says:

    I wish she would stop wearing strapless gowns. Her arms and shoulders are so manly and pointy, it looks gross. She could look gorgeous in something better suited to her body type.

  51. fizXgirl314 says:

    yeah her face does look painfully worked on… she even made an asian woman look big.. THAT’S TALENT!

  52. lin234 says:

    People make fun of Nicole’s face all the time but have you guys seen her in the movie Appaloosa? Her face was so tight, it was painful just watching her talk. I don’t find her pretty at all. I wonder why people find her a better actress than Nicole when she can hardly move that face of hers too.

  53. M says:

    what really amazes me is that those girls are on the red carpet in THOSE dresses ONLY. I mean… I am in Berlin right now… it’S f*ing freezing here. I don’t leave the house without an extra pair of socks, a hat, gloves, two scarves… and Renee has to stand there with bare shoulders… ugh…

  54. orion70 says:

    The first two pics are actually quite nice, but wowee that last one, front on she looks like a muscular 10 year old boy; that dress does not do her figure justice at all.

  55. RoXie says:

    Maybe her dress is so tight is because when she bought it she was a smaller size and wasn’t expecting bloating. And comparing her to her Jerry Maguire days is not fair at all. That was made in 1996, 14 years ago. I know I looked much better 14 years ago how about you. She’s aging and everyone does it. No one is ever going to be happy…she’s either too thin or has a pouch, face too frozen or looks too old. Can anyone really pass the inspections that celebrities have to go through? They aren’t perfect and we shouldn’t expect them to be.

  56. Lway says:

    Maybe she’s on her period???
