" Actors, unlike the rest of us, face no consequences of gaining and losing extreme amounts of weight in very little time: Many know that rapid weight changes aren't healthy, just like we do, but they do it because it's their job. For the third Bridget Jones installment, Renee Zellweger famously opted against gaining the weight she had put on for the first two movies, in consideration of her health."

For the third Bridget Jones installment, Renee Zellweger famously opted against gaining the weight she had put on for the first two movies, in consideration of her health.
