Producers are all praise for Renee Zellweger in ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’

London: Bridget Jones’s Baby producer Debra Hayward has praised Renee Zellweger, who returns to the lead role in the film franchise’s latest installment.

Hayward called the 46-year-old actress “lovely”, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“She’s lovely in this and does take it really seriously. She puts a lot into that and cares deeply about how she’s presenting herself. She is kind of every woman, Bridget. You do want to look at her and see yourself reflected back in her in some way. What I love about the stories, it’s quite bold to tell a story about a slightly older woman. I just love that it’s kind of got a sort of maturity about it, as a love story, as a romantic comedy.”

In the new film, Bridget is 43, still single and a successful producer of a serious news programme in the UK – when she discovers she is pregnant.

But is the father Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) or new character, handsome billionaire Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey).
