American actress and producer, Renee Zellweger slammed the media speculations on her appearance and denies the plastic surgery. In The Huffington Post blog which was published on Friday, Renee explained: “Not that it’s anyone’s business, but I did not make a decision to alter my face and have surgery on my eyes.

“What if immaterial tabloid stories, judgments and misconceptions remained confined to the candy jar of low-brow entertainment and were replaced in mainstream media by far more important, necessary conversations?” she wrote.
Renee added, “choosing the dignity of silence rather than engaging with the commerce of cruel fiction ‘often’ leaves one vulnerable not only to the usual ridicule, but to having the narrative of one’s life hijacked by those who profiteer from invented scandal.”
“I’m writing because to be fair to myself, I must make some claim on the truths of my life, and because witnessing the transmutation of tabloid fodder from speculation to truth is deeply troubling,” she said. “The ‘eye surgery’ tabloid story itself did not matter, but it became the catalyst for my inclusion in subsequent legitimate news stories about self-acceptance and women succumbing to social pressure to look and age a certain way.”
The Bridget Jones star suggested that we instead focus on the “countless significant unprecedented current events affecting our world.”
“Maybe we could talk more about our many true societal challenges and how we can do better,” she concluded. Renee wants to be focused on things that are important more than her outer appearance and plastic surgery rumors.
Renee is all set for her premieres to hit the screens on September 16. Here is the video-
