Renee Zellweger is telling all in a candid new chat with Extra she she promotes the highly-anticipated Bridget Jones's Baby flick.
The 47-year-old admitted that although she plays an expectant-mother on the set of the third instalment of the beloved saga, she has no immediate plans to start a family of her own.
“I’ve never really thought like that about anything in my life, really,” the actress responded when asked if she was “craving” a baby.
“I’ve always been kind of open to whatever may be, curious to see what’s next. I’ve never been that deliberate about my life and the things that I would require in order to be happy.”
A pregnant Bridget Jones pictured filming a Christmas scene on the streets of London.
The star then went on to explain why she loves playing dysfunctional yet totally lovable girl-next-door.
"She triumphs over her imperfections and she makes it okay to be imperfect,” Renee quipped of her character Bridget.
“She makes it OK to be human at a time when we feel probably that there’s a lot of social pressure to be a certain way, to look a certain way, to have established certain things in your life by a certain phase in your life experience."
Adding: “She’s sort of challenging those notions.”

The charismatic blonde has been enjoying a whirlwind promotional tour of the popular comedy, which is set to hit theatres later this month.
The film’s debut will mark the first appearance for Renee on the big screen after a six-year Hollywood hiatus.
Speaking of her decision to take a breather from acting, she explained: "It was time, it was time, I wanted to do some other things that there's not a lot of time for when you're caught up in the cycle of making films, because they tend to overlap.
"There's not a lot of time to develop other skills, it's a pretty big commitment, it's a happy fun commitment, but I wanted to learn some other things. I did some pretty great things."
The actress has been living it up in Sydney on her promotional tour with co-star Patrick Dempsey.
