Haul out the biscuits and gravy, crispy duck, Snickers, milk shakes, pizza and butter-soaked potatoes – Renée Zellweger's very special diet to get in shape to play Bridget Jones, because the Oscar winner is prepping to play the full-figured singleton once again.
Zellweger, 40, is expected to start filming at the end of this year what will be the third installment about the love-starved British publishing executive, Variety reports.
This time, the story will likely focus on 40-ish Bridget's desire to have a baby before time runs out, as based on author Helen Fielding's weekly newspaper columns for Britain's The Independent, says the showbiz trade publication.
