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

“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!

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.

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.

I think she looks likes a 50 yr old boy

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

She looks good.

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!

GORGEOUS! I LOVE Renee. She also has the most gorgeous legs of any one!
Renee, don’t sell yourself short……’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!!!!!!!!!!!
