Renée Zellweger‘s return to performing was no stroll within the park.
Throughout an look on “The Graham Norton Show” on Friday evening, the 50-year-old actress advised the viewers that in an effort to play Judy Garland within the new biopic “Judy,” she needed to be sewn into all of her costumes and couldn’t actually transfer.
“Judy slouched a little and the dresses were made so that I couldn’t have stood any other way,” the “Bridget Jones’s Diary” star advised the host. “I was literally sewn into them.”
She continued, “It was a great reminder during the day if you got lazy because you had no option but to stand like her. The sequins were very strict!”
Regardless that the film focuses on a darkish, tumultuous time in Garland’s life, Zellweger insists, “It’s not depressing and you can’t help but empathize with her. She’s not tragic at all because she didn’t quit. She’s heroic.”
Previous to the movie’s launch, Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli mentioned she did “not approve nor sanction” the film.
