Renee Zellweger Stung in the Face by A Cartoon Bee?

OK, maybe her skin irritation isn’t quite that bad, but I was hoping to figure out a clever way to tie in the fact that Renee Zellweger’s skin appears to be a bit ruddier than usual in these photos of her at the premiere of her new film with Jerry Seinfeld, “Bee Movie.” The actress, who voiced one of the characters in the Dreamworks animated feature, looked pink on the red carpet, and the Daily Mail speculates that perhaps it’s Zellweger’s penchant for chemical peels that left her a bit red in the face. But maybe she’s just flushed with excitement, as she did sound like she highly enjoyed working with Jerry.

“I had the best time working with him.”

“Talk about looking forward to coming to the office. To watch as he’s coming up with something, you can see it: Oh, it’s brewing, it’s happening. Ah, what it’s going to be? And then out it spills, and it’s brilliant.”

I like Jerry Seinfeld and loved his show as much as the next guy, but I think being stuck in an office with a guy constantly musing over nonsensical observations might drive me to murder. “What’s the deal with this ringing thing?”

“Jerry, that’s a phone and I swear to God, if you don’t answer it, I’m ramming it down your throat. I mean…don’t forget to press line 1 first.”
