Renee Zellweger has a new face - and it looks familiar

Well this is weird.

Renee Zellweger
‘s new face has caused shockwaves around the world but I think there is one woman who should be more shocked than most – her ex boyfriend Bradley Cooper‘s new girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Renee, who dated Bradley for almost two years, has started to bear more than a passing resemblance to his new model girlfriend Suki.

With her thicker eyebrows, toned down make-up and side swept fringe the similarities are striking.

Renee
, 45, and Bradley, 39, were one of Hollywood’s hottest couples back in 2010.

She was close to his mum and Bradley, who rarely talks about his love life, even gushed at the time: ‘I can’t say enough about her… I just love her.’

We all got excited that a wedding could be imminent. But then he ended things, with rumours swirling that he wasn’t ready to commit.

Fast forward three years and Bradley is now loved up with model Suki, 22 – and he has even talked about wanting babies one day.

So, what’s with Renee‘s transformation? Does Bradley just have a type? Or is she sub-consciously morphing into his new love?

One thing is certain, Renee is happier than ever. Renee responded this week to the speculation about her changed face with the ultimate slapdown, admiting she DOES look different…because she’s happy.

Now loved up with boyfriend of two years Doyle Bramhall II, Renee appears to have finally found peace. And after the love life she’s had (remember the marriage to Kenny Chesney that lasted just four months?) who would begrudge her a little happiness?

She said: ‘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.’

She described the speculation that she has had surgery as ‘silly’ and said: ‘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.

‘People don’t know me in my 40s. People don’t know me as [healthy] for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older? But I am different. I’m happy.’

How wonderful.

So, if Bradley wants to know what his current girlfriend will look like in 20 years’ time, he only needs to look at his ex. And he should feel pleased.
