Bridget's back – and better than ever?
It's been 14 years since readers last heard from frumpy, lovelorn, calorie-counting Bridget Jones, memorably played on film by Renée Zellweger.
Now author Helen Fielding is readying a brand-new Jones novel, but don't expect her lovable protagonist to be exactly the same this time around.
According to a press release about the book obtained by the New York Times, the book will take place in present day London and "represents a totally new phase in Bridget's life."
Considered by some to be a possible Fielding alter-ego, the author explains: "My life has moved on and Bridget's will move on, too."

Given Jonathan Lipnicki's bulging bicep display in November, it should come as no surprise that he would like an acting role that allows him to use his muscles to his advantage.
"I really want to do something where I can show my physicality – something with a lot of action," the (now grown) spikey-haired blonde boy who played Renee Zellweger's adorable son in 1996's Jerry Maguire, tells PEOPLE. "Action would be fun. I'd really like to do that."
Contributing to the now-21-year-old's chiseled physique is his favorite hobby.

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth hosted an intimate, private wedding over the weekend – and their guest list read like a who's who of Hollywood.
It comes as no surprise, perhaps, that an Academy Award winner and top Hollywood agent would have a star-studded social circle, but like any other guest list there's a story behind how the folks who attended the nuptials landed an invite.
Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan
The Iron Man star relies on a super agent to help navigate his career: Toth himself! While the groom is pals with the Downey Jr., Witherspoon also has a friendship with the actor and even had him and his wife up to her Ojai, Calif., estate in 2008 where they went hiking.

Her two-year-relationship with Bradley Cooper now history, Renée Zellweger has also shed two of her apartments on Manhattan Upper East Side, which have been on the market since November.
The buyer is Deep Impact and TV's Joan of Arc actress Leelee Sobieski, 28, and Zellweger's asking price was $8.95 million, reports The New York Times, relying on those familiar with the transaction. The final offer was not disclosed, and there was no comment from Sobieski's rep.
One of the apartments contains three bedrooms and 3½ baths (as well as enviable 13½-ft.-high ceilings and wood-burning fireplaces), while the other is a one-bedroom, one bath, per The Times.
