She gets it! Heidi Montag weighed in on Renee Zellweger’s transformation while speaking to Extra on Thursday, Oct. 23, saying she has “empathy.”
“I don’t know if Renee Zellweger just aged like she said… For me, when I see people who look totally different, I have an empathy, because I feel like I know why at least I did it, and it kind of brings it back to that time in my life.
“I hope it’s the right decision for them and they feel good about it. That’s the most important thing. But at the same time, my heart goes out to them… It’s a hard, life-changing decision. When anyone does that then they’re obviously unhappy with something.”
She added: “I hope they found their happiness.”
Heidi continued: “You can’t hide forever, so if you’re a public figure, you have to come out eventually, and you just hope that you’re feeling good and confident about it.
“And even if you were feeling confident about it, sometimes it takes you back from it and it makes you feel guilty about it or more judged when the whole world is talking so negative about you.”
Smiling for the cameras, Renee seemed happier than ever with her beau in tow, on Monday.
There have been rumours over the years the actress has undergone various surgical procedures but Renee has never confirmed either way.
There is certainly a trend for facial surgery in Hollywood currently but the star’s new look may just be down to age.
Speaking to People on Tuesday, the 45-year-old said: “It seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth, which doesn’t exist, won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.
“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.”
