Renee Zellweger reveals how she became 'Judy'

Renée Zellweger felt a 'sense of responsibility' in 'Judy'

In the film, Zellweger plays the eponymous singer and actress at a time when Garland headed to London in an effort to revive her career with a string of sold-out shows in 1969.

Last week, in an interview with Vulture, she said that the rumours, which emerged in 2014, "made her sad".

"And then the rest was pretty hard to know because we're talking about very private moments that haven't been shared and it's sort of an interpretation of what the experiences of the person who was living under those circumstances at that time might be like".

The 50-year-old star, who retreated from the spotlight after an appearance at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards prompted speculation that she had had plastic surgery, recalled the "pretty painful" moment she overheard strangers negatively discussing her looks. "She doesn't look like herself, and you can't just do that where you go and don't look like yourself, 'cause we expect you to look like yourself", Zellweger continued to explain.

"I had no idea!" she told Entertainment Tonight, adding that some part of the fake nose's material or adhesive oozed a milk-like substance when the pair pushed their faces together for the kiss.

CNN has reached out to Zellweger's representatives for comment.

Zellweger said the man was "still talking about how stupid I am" when she got up just before her stop and he looked up and recognised her.

Zellweger said they went on to say: "How could she do that?" And he looked up and he said, 'Oh God, you're not - you are! And I said, "Yeah, it's amusing how that works, isn't it?"'

The vulnerable Bridget Jones actress acknowledged experiences akin to this one had been "momentarily... moderately painful". "I think otherwise I would have just run away".

Critics are over the rainbow for Renee Zellweger again.

"And I'm busy! You know, I have dogs and they have to have shots and they need pills twice a day. I have other things to do", she joked.

This lead her to reflect on her mental health and helped Zellweger to realise she was struggling with depression.
