Bridget is pregnant
Here’s Renee Zellweger in London today shooting Bridget Jones’s Baby. As you can see, Bridget is having a baby. As you know, the having-a-baby storyline doesn’t really interest me. Please note, Carrie Bradshaw having a baby is a movie no one needs to see.
But Bridget having a baby…
Look at Renee in these shots. She’s in character. There’s the ubiquitous confusion all over Bridget’s face. Bridget is always comfortingly lost. Her cluelessness, however, is almost always followed by determination and hilarious over-confidence. Example:
“Oh, joy. I am broadcasting genius. Celebrating by cooking birthday feast for close friends. Have sneaking suspicion...am also something of a genius in the kitchen as well.”
Bridget’s inner monologue. I can almost hear it in these pictures. God she’s good in this role. If she won an Oscar for it I would not be mad. Yeah, I said it. What?
