The Bridget Jones Cast
Renee Zellweger
Renée Zellweger is back—in the sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason! When we first met the insecure, yet adorable, Bridget Jones, women everywhere stood up and cheered. Droves of single women could relate to Bridget Jones' never-ending search for Mr. Right. From trying to lose weight to working her way up the career ladder to discovering her boyfriend's cheating ways, it seems Bridget could not catch a break.

Oprah: Did you know that [Bridget] was going to become this cultural icon?

Renée: I had no idea. I just didn't want [author] Helen Fielding to be mad at me...I didn't want her to be disappointed and feel like I had ruined her character in some way.
