Renée Zellweger is an actress most known for playing the titular roles of Bridget Jones’s Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Bridget Jones’s Baby.

The 55-year-old famously gained a whopping 30lb (2.1st) for the role and had to learn to speak in an English accent for the role.

Renée, who is normally toned and svelte, had to eat a high-fat, high-carb diet to gain weight for the role eating foods such as pizza, milkshakes and chocolate.

However, in the latest Bridget Jones movie in 2016, Renée kept her slim, willowy figure.

Discussing the character’s weight and relationship with her body at the time, she told TODAY: “I never thought she [Jones] had a weight issue, I thought that was just something that like all of us, we think, ‘Oh I’d love to change this thing about myself’.

“When in fact, nobody else notices it, but you. It’s that thing about ruminating and self-criticism and all of that.”

To slim down after the first two Bridget Jones movies, the actress reportedly ate a strict diet of lean fish, rice and vegetables. She also spent two hours a day with a personal trainer, according to Cosmopolitan.

She has also been known to follow three diets – The Zone Diet, Hamptons and Atkins Diets.

The Zone Diet involves sticking to a specific eating ratio of 40 percent carbs, 30 percent protein and 30 percent fat.

The carbohydrates consumed in the diet have to have a low glycemic index which means they release sugars slowly into the blood stream to keep dieters feeling fuller for longer.

It also involves eating small amounts of good fats like olive oil, nuts and avocados.

The Hamptons Diet is a low-carbohydrate, low-calorie diet that is similar to the Atkins diet and the Mediterranean diet.

The actress managed to drop two dress sizes simply by eating smaller portions and regularly doing aerobic exercises.

Renée has been very open about the importance of exercise in her life. She said previously to MailOnline: “Wherever I move, or wherever I’m stationed, or whatever phase of life I’m in, the gym is my common denominator.

“I move to LA? I find my gym. I get to Santa Fe? I find my gym. In New York? Found my gym.”

The actress has also admitted she loves running and runs a minimum of three to six miles every day.
