Renée Zellweger felt a 'sense of responsibility' in 'Judy'

Renée Zellweger had a serious mishap while filming her upcoming Judy Garland biopic.

She has previously said she had not altered her face or had surgery, "not that it's anyone's business".

RENEE ZELLWEGER has recalled the "painful" moment she overheard strangers talking about her changing appearance. Sadly, she would be gone just a year later.

During an appearance on USA radio station SiriusXM's "Jess Cagle Show", Zellweger said she was sitting next to two women and a man "on a subway in London" when they started discussing celebrities. "I think otherwise I would've just run away". "Oh my God, but you look just like yourself!' And I said, 'Yeah, it's amusing how that works, isn't it?'"

It's a process that included a bit of experimentation to find what is "recognizable in terms of Judy's features, in defining characteristics, in terms of her body language and her performance language, and what we recognize as iconic and her physicality", Zellweger explained at the Toronto International Film Festival. Anyway, here's my stop, ' " Zellweger went on.

"All of our affection and admiration for Judy sort of felt very alive in that moment, and thinking of what that song meant to her at that time in her life, and the nostalgia we all sort of feel about it now", Zellweger added.

'He said, "Oh God, you're not, you are!" Oh my God, but you look just like yourself!' And I said, 'Yeah, it's amusing how that works, isn't it?'

"It's only momentarily where you go, 'Jeez, wow, that's pretty painful.' But I don't live in that".

CNN has reached out to Zellweger's representatives for comment. I don't seek it out.

"The glue and the thing and the chemicals or something, I don't know, and some of it would just sneak out the crevice [on the side]", Zellweger added. There's a lot, you know.

"One of the fears that maybe, as artists, we all share - because we have this public experience of being criticised not just for our work but as human beings - is when it gets to be too much, when you learn that your skin is not quite as thick as you need it to be, what is that gonna feel like?"
