The are-they-aren't-they romance between Renée Zellweger and GEORGE CLOONEY has taken another crazy turn, with the actress telling an American magazine she's mad about Clooney.
The BRIDGET JONEs's DIARY (2001) star was reported to have dumped the THREE KINGS (1999) hunk when he wouldn't abandon his womanising ways. But in the December (01) issue of W magazine, sexy Renee makes it clear she has a soft spot for the Hollywood lothario.
She tells the mag, "Look, just say George is a very good friend of mine and I love spending time with him and he is such a good person. He inspires me. He's so kind, so kind. And you'd be shocked at how smart he is. " (NFA/WNWCPS/BRC)
