Rene Zellweger

Rene Kathleen Zellweger (born April 25, 1969 in Katy, Texas) is an Academy Award-winning movie actress.

Rene, the daughter of a Swiss father and a Norwegian mother of Sami origin, graduated from Katy High School in Katy, a suburb of Houston in 1987. 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; at 18 working at Sugar's Go-Go Bar in Austin.

By the time she graduated from college, she knew that she wanted to pursue a career in acting. She immediately began auditioning for commercials and small films that were being shot in Texas, including Reality Bites, 8 Seconds, and The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (all of which she got the parts for).

Her breakout role was in 1996's Jerry Maguire, where she played the romantic interest of Tom Cruise's character. She has since starred and received Academy Award nominations for her roles in Bridget Jones's Diary and Chicago. In 2004, she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Cold Mountain.

On May 9, 2005, Rene married singer Kenny Chesney in a ceremony at the island of St. John. They had met in January at a tsunami relief benefit concert. Renee missed out on the engagement ring since the wedding was planned over a short span of time. On May 24,2005, Renee received her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Rene Zellweger is, together with Marc Forster, taking part in the 2005 HIV prevention campaign of the Swiss federal health department. She's shown with the text "No intercourse without a condom" and "Semen or blood - never in the mouth".[1] (http://www.lovelife.ch)
