Svaki dan su je dva sata 'transformirali': Pogledajte kako Renee Zellweger izgleda u ulozi Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger neprepoznatljiva je u ulozi legendarne Judy Garland u biografskom filmu 'Judy' za koji je napokon objavljen prvi trailer

Glumica Renee Zellweger utjelovilla je Judy Garland u posljednjoj godini njezinog života: priča prati njezin dolazak u London 1968. godine gdje je, unatoč lošem zdravlju, odradila nekoliko rasprodanih koncerata. Legendarna pjevačica preminula je nekoliko mjeseci nakon što je turneja završila, u lipnju 1969. godine u 48. godini života i to zbog slučajnog predoziranja.

Film je adaptacija predstave s Broadwayja "End of the Rainbow" Petera Quiltera, a kako bi se pripremila za ulogu, oskarovka je hodala na tečaj glazbe, vježbala koreografiju i čitala o glumici i pjevačici koja se proslavila ulogom Dorothy u filmu "The Wizard of Oz" još 1939. godine.

Kako bi se vjerodostojno prerušila u Judy, Renee je po dva sata sjedila dok su joj stavljali protetiku, leće i vlasulje. Unatoč tome, glumica kaže kako joj je to bilo nevjerojatno iskustvo, osobito jer je mnogo naučila o "veličini te osove".

- Uvijek sam joj se divila, bila je strašno duhovita - izjavila je 50-godišnja glumica koja u filmu glumi uz Finna Wittrocka, Rufusa Sewella i Michaela Gambona.

I dok obožavatelji s nestrpljenjem čekaju biografski film, njezina kći Liza Minnelli (73) još je lani izjavila kako film ne podržava te ne stoji iza njega, bez obzira na to što se pisalo. Film se očekuje krajem rujna ove godine.
