This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.

Renée Zellweger is an open book these days!
In an interview with the Advocate, Renée discussed her failed marriage to Kenny Chesney and why she annulled their 2005 brief marriage over "fraud", a charge which led many to suspect the country singer was gay.
Now Zellweger is FINALLY speaking out on the issue and and naturally we're all ears!
According to the actress, the scandal isn't something she conveniently "forgot" about… a claim which is just CRAZY considering the drama of the split still follows Chesney to this day! The scandal was a big deal back in 2005!
The beauty went on to dish:
"I forgot about that. It's a pretty big thing to forget, isn't it? That made me sad. It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences. Of course, there's the bigger-picture problem of why anyone had to make up a story at all."
Well we do agree the 47-year-old on that point. It's never okay to use someone's sexuality as an insult!
So, why didn't the star ever speak out on the issue if it made her feel so bad?
Renée Zellweger has spoken!
After being absent from the big screen for around six years, the blonde beauty is making her grand return for the third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise. AH-Mazing!
Of course, with any big budget movie comes the daunting press tour. So it was only a matter of time Miz Zellweger would address the controversy surrounding her seemingly altered appearance from back in 2014. While many speculated the Oscar winner had plastic surgery, Renée explained her highly talked about look was due to her being preoccupied with some sad news. Huh.
The Bridget Jones's Baby star shared:
She sure has a thing for movie soundtracks!
Well, it seems as though the 29-year-old pop star enjoyed the glitz and glamour of Hollywood… because she just dropped yet another music video for a major film franchise on Friday!
From now until the movie premieres next month, be prepared to hear Ellie as the voice for fellow British favorite Bridget Jones's Baby thanks to her new song Still Falling For You.
We cannot wait to see how the song plays into the Bridget Jones sequel's plot once Baby arrives on September 16!
Ch-ch-check out Ellie Goulding's Still Falling For You music video (below)!!!
Renee Zellweger is talking honestly about aging and sexism in Hollywood.
Renée Zellweger famously packed on 30 pounds to play the titular character in the first two Bridget Jones movies over 10 years ago.
But those who watched the trailers for Bridget Jones's Baby may have noticed the beloved character has slimmed way down!
Some fans might assume the actress wasn't game to pack on the pounds for a third time, but Zellweger revealed it wasn't her idea to stay lean for the upcoming comedy.
In a new interview, the 47-year-old said she was more than ready to once again put on weight to play the iconic heroine, but director Sharon Maguire talked her out of it.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, she said:
Patrick Dempsey certainly has our attention!
The Grey's Anatomy alum really gave the Outback something to wake up to when he accidentally talked about erections on Australia's Today show!
When appearing on Sunday morning's show with Bridget Jones's Baby costar Renée Zellweger, the actors tried out their best Aussie accents.
After Zellweger gave it her best go, Dempsey tried to one up his costar and attempt to bust out some Australian slang — but things were apparently a bit lost in translation when he said on air:
Talk about awkward!
While the two men talked on a WIDE range of subjects, one of our favorite moments of the night had to be when Andy started quizzing the Brit on some of his former female costars — including Renee Zellweger, Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, and Julianne Moore!
During the segment, the late night host asked Hugh a series of questions about his former on-screen loves and the actor made a MAJOR mistake by
