Renee's year out
09:30 30 September 2005
Renee Zellweger is taking a year off from movies.
The Oscar-winning actress, who recently split from husband Kenny Chesney after just five months of marriage, has revealed she wants to take time out to find herself.
She explained: "I'd like to take a year off from filming. I would like not to go into the make-up trailer for a whole year. I don't think I'd have so much to give, as a creative person, to a project that I was participating in right now, because I'm in such need of a break.
She added in an interview with Britain's OK magazine: "I want some time to consider my options. I want to figure who I am as a grown-up woman. I need to refuel."
However, despite her dreams of a break, the beautiful actress has reportedly just signed up to play Beatrix Potter in a biopic of the much-loved children's author's life.
The Hollywood film, 'Miss Potter', directed by 'Babe' producer Chris Noonan, is also set to star Ewan McGregor, who is in talks to play Norman, Potter's publisher and lover.
