Renee 'gets permission to lose weight'

Producers of the Bridget Jones sequel have reportedly given Renée Zellweger permission to lose weight.

Teen Hollywood claims the actress had to gain 30 lbs for the lead role.

She wasn't allowed to lose any weight until producers had decided there was no need to re-shoot any scenes.

A friend said: "Renee is thrilled that she can stop gorging on fatty food.

She's started eating healthily again and is working with two personal trainers in a bid to lose the excess weight.

"She liked having curves, but she is looking forward to being slim again."
