Bridget Jones is finally back. The long-awaited third instalment of the popular rom-com franchise doesn’t premiere until September 16, 2016, but that hasn’t stopped the promotional train from leaving the station. Entertainment Weekly gives the first look at Bridget Jones’s Baby.
In addition to sharing pics of Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey in the studio and on set, the publication interviews the cast. Dempsey talks about a possible return to television, Zellweger discusses the media coverage about her appearance last year and much more. Check out more photos below, along with several quotes.
Zellweger On Playing Bridget Jones Again
“This is part of the new challenge, discovering where she is now in her new life. But as an actress, it feels like stepping back with an old friend. I love this character, I like that she tells stories about what it’s like to be a woman and these really relatable situations at certain times in life. It’s so right to tell a story about Bridget in this stage of her life.”
Zellweger On Media’s Coverage About Her ‘New Face’
“All that I know about is what friends and associates would send in texts and emails. They were sending support, which means that I must have needed it, and I prefer it that way. So when people come up to me to ask ‘How did that feel?’ I don’t know, and I like it like that. I don’t know. I know it sounds pretty unlikely that a person might be able to make herself, I guess, keep clear of those words or of that experience, but I have and it takes effort. But I have succeeded.”
Dempsey On Returning To Television
“I would consider anything. I just have to be open and see what comes along.”
