Renee Zellweger as Bridget JonesRenee Zellweger has agreed to play Bridget Jones once again for the sequel, and she will indeed pack on the pounds: The Age reports that on top of her $15 million salary, Renee will get another $225,000 per kilo she adds to her weight. Gothamist has mixed opinions about this. We feel that her performance in Bridget Jones was brilliant, but since she's gone totally anorexic post-Bridget Jones, we're concerned that she'll starve herself so much after making the sequel that her kidneys will fall and she'll be walking around with an IV drip; we seriously think her body image has turned cuckoo after making BJD - her skinny is scary. We hope her new boyfriend, Jack White, will be a mensch and (a) stick with her while she gains the weight and (b) convince her that she doesn't need to lose all of it. It seemed that even Mya could have snapped Renee in two in Chicago.

That whole Renee-too-fat-for-Harper's-Bazaar thing.

The sequel to Bridget Jones' Diary, BJD: The Edge of Reason, does involve Bridget losing weight after languishing in a Thai prison...
