It was the talk of tinseltown yesterday, Renee Zellweger's face - possibly because there was a lack of a new The Bachelor scandal.

Now the 45-year-old actress has spoken out about her much talked about appearance.

Zellweger said the reaction of people not recognising her was what she was hoping for.  Yes, really.

"I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows … My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things."

It's great to hear that she is happy and healthy, and she definitely does look glowing.

Zellweger also added that she has aged, and has been out of the spotlight for so long.  She has a point.

"I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself … People don't know me in my 40s … People don't know me [as] healthy for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."

Good on her!
