When Renee Zellweger showed up at the Elle Women In Hollywood event on Tuesday night, everyone was shocked at the drastic change in her appearance. Zellweger have been trending on Twitter since then with discussions ranging from the difference in her hair, eyebrows, skin and eyes but she thinks the attention is “silly.”
While most people are speculating that she went under the knife, Zellweger claims that she is just living a healthier lifestyle.

“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 said in an interview with PEOPLE. “My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. 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,” she adds
“Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I’m happy,” she concludes.
