Renee's Background
Background:  Born and raised in the tiny town of Katy, TX.  Renee received a B.A. in English from the University of Texas.  It was during her college years that Renee saw her first film.  There was no movie theater in Katy.  She got the acting bug from her drama classes. 

After graduation Zellweger decided to audition for TV and movie roles. She was successful in landing small roles in some not so big box office hits. 

Breakthrough Leading Lady Role:  Beating out some of Hollywoods' well-known young actresses, Renee won the much sought after lead role of Dorothy, the love interest of Tom Cruise's "Jerry Maguire". 

Star on the Rise:  With her success in "Jerry Maguire", Zellweger is in the running as one of the hottest young actresses of the day.  Zellweger said, as quoted in the L.A.Times, "Can you say, 'Vincent D'Onofrio, Tom Cruise, and Tim Roth in one year?'  Hello! I'm being smiled on by the actor gods!"
