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

Short hair is fun and liberating. She looks cute.

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…..
