‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Star Renee Zellweger Forgets her Character’s British Accent

Let the Hollywood stars tell you how frustrating it can be to nail a British accent and especially if you have done it twice already, it only hurts more. “Bridget Jones’s Diary” and “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason” star Renee Zellweger who is reprising her role as Bridget Jones in next year’s “Bridget Jones’s Baby” is facing a similar situation as she has forgotten how she nailed the British accent so perfectly in the first two movies.


According to Mirror, Renee Zellweger is trying to figure out how did she flawlessly manage to do the British accent in the previous two movies and has also hired an accent coach who is trying to help her rediscover her British accent. Renee has been filming the movie in London with co-star Colin Firth as the movie is expected to release next year around September. For all those who know Renee’s character Bridget Jones has been known for that lovely accent of hers, which she herself came up with. But since it has been more than a decade since the last movie released, Renee in a way has forgotten how she came up with it and wants to make sure if she is getting the accent right this time around as well. She has been spending a considerable amount of time with the coach on set trying to get her accent back. “Bridget Jones’s Baby” started shooting this month on the 2nd and Renee has been spotted on set with a huge prosthetic baby bump as she reprises her character who is now in her 40’s. The funny thing about the movie is despite all the bad that happens to Bridget Jones she manages to make it look like a funny goof-up in the movie.

It is also a delight to see her co-star Colin Firth back in his character as the charming Barrister Mark Darcy, however instead of Hugh Grant, “Grey’s Antomy” star Patrick Dempsey will be seen in another role altogether.


Entertainment Weekly added that Renee is delighted to be reprising her one of the most famous roles Bridget Jones as fans tend to stop her on the streets and ask her about it. “Bridget Jones’s Baby” is due to release on September 16th next year.
