Who is this actress posing on the red carpet and what she done with Renee Zellweger? That's the burning question many people were demanding to have answered on social media after the 45-year-old Bridget Jones star showed up at ELLE's 21st annual Women In Hollywood Awards looking, well, unlike herself.
Indeed, you may have to double take or even triple take to be sure. Some trolls were quick to point out that Zellweger looks "awful" while surgeons were happy to speculate about all the different work—from a "super line-free forehead, altered brow and suspiciously puffy face"—she's had done in the months that she's been out of the spotlight. One 'before' photo proved that the radical changes in her look may be as recent as the past month.
Frankly I don't care whether she had Botox or surgery or a combination of the two or even nothing at all. The fact is, while it's terrible that people feel the need to pass commentary on a celebrity's appearance, in this case at least I don't feel most people were doing so out of malice so much as out of genuine mystification and plain scientific curiosity akin to rubbernecking over a car crash or a public altercation. You know you have no business looking, yet you can't for the life of you drag your eyes away.
While I'm personally not a fan of plastic surgery, I don't live in L.A. or work in a vainglorious industry. And for that I'm truly grateful because I relish the freedom of being able to walk my dog every day wearing yoga pants and not a scrap of makeup.
She may not look like the Renee Zellweger we know and love, but who knows, maybe that's the point. Let's hope she lapped up the anonymity and enjoyed going incognito while it lasted.
You tell me: What do you think of her new look, or should we not even go there?
This guy, who spent a small fortune trying to look like Justin Bieber, looks nothing like Justin Bieber.
We trust buses to get our kids safely to and from school. But what if that is beyond the driver's control? When that red sign sticks out, will cars actually stop to let kids disembark and cross the road safely? This disturbing video reveals that more often than not, vehicles are failing to stop for buses.
Fortunately, police in the US are using new technology to catch the drivers who put children at risk.
An 11-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after he was struck as he attempted to board his bus one morning. He suffered multiple fractures and wound up in a body cast. As for the driver—just a ticket "for passing a stopped school bus and failing to reduce speed."
Even though it's illegal to pass a stopped bus, many vehicles fail to stop. Some don't see the flashing lights in time, others deliberately race past.
In Ontario, some 800,000 kids take the bus to school each day, and though drivers face fines and demerit points for failing to stop, that relies on them being caught. Something that is next to impossible to do.
But a new technology, which has been piloted in Sudbury and North Bay, should make catching drivers who break the law easier. Cameras fitted to the signs are activated once the bus stops, capturing the licence plate numbers of any vehicles that race past. Implementing the technology is expensive, yet aren't our kids' lives worth it?
With full-day kindergarten, little ones who are scarcely visible are riding the bus and learning the rules of the road. Now that my son is taking the bus for the first time, I'm conscious of this glaring safety hazard.
One car that doesn't stop is one car too many. The Ministry of Transport needs to get on this, pronto.
You tell me: Have you seen cars race past stopped buses?
Check your fridge. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has recalled the following milk products from Natrel made at the Agropur dairy plant. Sold in Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia, the affected products have best before before dates between October 23 and 31:
The CIFA has recalled the products milk due to spoilage, though the hazard was classed as a 3, meaning it “is not likely to cause any adverse health consequences.”
It is the second time in recent months that Natrel products were pulled from shelves after customers complained of milk spoiling weeks before the best before date.
Tiny cracks were discovered in the pasteurizing equipment at the company's Quebec City plant. The CFIA is investigating.
