Los Angeles, Sep 21 (IANS) Actress Renee Zellweger is receiving critical acclaim for her portrayal of the late Judy Garland in biographical film “Judy”, but she is not interested in becoming an Oscars contender.
In fact, she looked at the recent Los Angeles premiere of “Judy” as an opportunity to reconnect with old friends.
“I just come to see my friends, because they’re all here. It’s nice reunions at all these little stops that we make. I think about that stuff, and in the meantime I gotta take care of my dogs and make sure that they’re sorted and have their shots and all kinds of things that need to happen everyday. I think about that stuff more than anything else,” Zellweger told eonline.com.
Though she is “happy that people seem to be touched by the film. That’s what we had hoped”.
She is also anticipating the release of her and Sam Smith’s duet, a cover of Garland’s “Get happy”, which will be included on the film’s soundtrack.
“Talk about spoiled rotten, right? This has just been a very greedy experience of dreams coming true all over the place,” she said.
