She was a cheerleader and gymnast, and participated in the drama club. After high school, she went to the University of Texas at Austin to major in English. Though she took a drama class only because she needed a fine arts credit to complete her degree, it reminded her of how much she loved acting. During this time, she supported herself by taking a series of waitressing jobs in Austin, Texas.

Film career

After Zellweger graduated from college she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. She won supporting roles in films such as Dazed and Confused, Reality Bites, Empire Records, The Whole Wide World, 8 Seconds, and Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Since then Zellweger has won acclaim in roles such as One True Thing opposite William Hurt and Meryl Streep and in Neil LaBute's Nurse Betty opposite Morgan Freeman. The role garnered the actress her first of three Golden Globe Awards.
However it wasn't until her role in Bridget Jones's Diary that she caught the eye of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. For her performance as a lonely, British singleton in the 2001 film, Zellweger received her first Best Actress Academy Award nomination. When cast as this role she was not highly liked by the public, told she was too skinny to play the chubby Bridget, but she managed to gain weight for the film.
In 2002, she starred with Michelle Pfeiffer in White Oleander and in Rob Marshall's Best Picture winning film Chicago opposite Catherine Zeta Jones, Richard Gere, Queen Latifah, and John C. Reilly. Zellweger earned her second Academy Award nomination as Best Actress, as well as the Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Award.

She recently finished filming on the biopic Miss Potter based on the life story of acclaimed author Beatrix Potter, with Emily Watson and Ewan McGregor. The film is due out by the end of the 2006.
On May 24,2005, Zellweger received her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Private life

Past boyfriends include Golden Globe Award winning actor/comedian Jim Carrey. The relationship ended in a broken engagement in December 2000. Zellweger notably poked fun at the prior relationship when she ended her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live by reading an entry from her own "diary", marked "Dear Diary, I can't believe I am dating Jim Carrey."
She also dated White Stripes singer Jack White for a period of time.


On May 9, 2005, Zellweger married singer Kenny Chesney in a ceremony at the island of St. John. They had met in January at a tsunami relief benefit concert. Zellweger missed out on the engagement ring since the wedding was planned over a short span of time . On September 15, 2005, after only four months of marriage, they announced their plans for an annulment. Zellweger cited fraud as the reason in the related papers . After media scrutiny of her use of the word "fraud", she released the following statement: "(The term is) simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny's character. I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalized or untrue conclusions. We hope to experience this transition as privately as possible." The annulment was finalized in late December 2005.
Zellweger, together with Marc Forster, took part in the 2005 HIV prevention campaign of the Swiss federal health department.
