Renee Zellweger is making sure that she spends quality time with boyfriend Bradley Cooper”s family— she invited the actor”s mum to be her date at the recent VIP opening of a designer clothing store.
The couple has been seeing each other since last year (09).
However, they recently denied reports of any plans to move in together after they were seen househunting in January (10).
But Zellweger is hitting off well with Cooper”s mum Gloria, who accompanied the ‘Bridget Jones”s Diary’ star to the launch of Vera Wang”s Los Angeles store on Tuesday.
“They looked like the best of friends. They were laughing, chatting throughout dinner. They are definitely close,” the Daily Star quoted a source as telling People.
The actress bonded with the Coopers after spending the Christmas holidays with the family.
Renee Zellweger has denied rumours she refused to gain weight for the third ‘Bridget Jones”s Diary.’
Earlier reports suggested that the actress had angered the producers by not agreeing to pile on the pounds for the role.
However, her spokesperson has cleared the air, insisting the reports are false.
“(The story is) so not true. Renee more than anyone would be true to the character,” the Daily Star quoted the representative as telling GossipCop.com.
Bradley Cooper has denied reports suggesting he is moving in with girlfriend Renee Zellweger.
The Hangover actor sparked the rumours after shelling out 5 million dollars on a posh three-bedroom house in Pacific Palisades, California.
But a spokesperson for the star has dismissed the claims, saying Cooper is the sole owner of the home, reports the Daily Express.
The couple have been involved in a romantic relationship since last year. Zellweger moved to New York City after selling her Los Angeles home in 2004.
Bridget Jones star Renee Zellweger reportedly displayed her charming side to the cops she called for help after her silver Mercedes off-roader was hit by a wrong-way driver in Beverly Hills.
The officer and two colleagues were said to have dashed to the 40-year-old actress’ side after she phoned, and were relieved to find that she was fine and only her car dented.
Police Lieutenant Tony Lee confirmed that the crash was not Zellweger’s fault, and said that the actress had been charming to deal with.
“A green Ford Explorer made an illegal U-turn in front of her silver Mercedes,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
“Ms Zellweger was not injured. The damage to her car was very minor. She was very polite and sincere,” he added.
Actress Renee Zellweger is apparently paranoid about hygiene and terrified of germs.
In fact she has become such a “germaphobe” that she reportedly does not allow her guests enter her New York home without their feet fully covered.
“Renee believes that shoes are frequently contaminated with dirt and dangerous bacteria. Her friends think it”s a bit over the top, but they always end up having a laugh when they go sliding around on her slippery floors!” Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.
However, the ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ star is not the only celebrity to be terrified of germs.
Even Jennifer Lopez had become conscious of maintaining high standards of hygiene for her 17-month-old twins Max and Emme with husband Marc Anthony.
She rather went a step further, making guests use antiseptic hand lotion and wear surgical masks before they entered the nursery.
A source said: “She is also paranoid about hygiene. The twins” wing is totally sterile and all flowers and presents are stored in a separate area so they don”t contaminate the babies” area.”
