With many speculating that the 45-year old has had some major surgery, Renee has now released a statement insisting she's "happy" that people think she looks different.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Zellweger claimed: "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows."
Explaining her decision to discuss the speculation regarding her face, she continued: "It seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door.
"My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself.
"Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things."
Renee concluded: "People don't know me (as) healthy for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."
