Bridget Jones fans are sure to rejoice after Renée Zellweger said she wants to play the lovable, slip-up-prone character again.

The 52-year-old actress opened up about her fondness for the beloved British icon, known for her romantic entanglements, who has played Renée three times, in a new interview.

In the most recent appearance, Bridget Jones’ Baby in 2016, the journalist had a baby with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, straight-laced lawyer Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth.

When asked if she would return to play Bridget on The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM, Renée said, “I hope so. I hope so. I mean, it’s fun, you know, she’s so much fun.”

She continued, “I love being in her shoes. I mean, it makes me giggle, you know, every day on set the decisions we have to make, how awkward we can make their circumstances. It’s just so much fun.”

Reflecting on Bridget’s enduring popularity, the Oscar winner said, “‘I find her so endearing…her self-deprecating brand of determination.

“I love her. And I think it’s really rare to follow a character through different stages of his life.

“And in a way that we find it relatable because it parallels our own life experiences at the time. I mean, Helen wrote another book, so that’s it.”

The films, which also star Hugh Grant, Sally Phillips and Jim Broadbent, are based on the comedic novels by author Helen Fielding.

The Texas-born Chicago star, Cold Mountain and Jerry Maguire, won two stone to play Bridget but has previously said she doesn’t want to change her form for a role again.

“My body is dead,” she confessed after years of yo-yo dieting and quick losses and gains.

She continued, “I had a panic attack when all the specialists were talking about how bad this is for you, long term, gaining so much weight in a short amount of time and they’re all like, ‘You have to stop or you’re going to die’ .”

Since starring as Bridget, Renée has moved away from romantic comedies, most recently morphing into serial killer Pam Hupp for a new NBC series.

True crime drama The Thing About Pam will detail the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria, whose husband Russ was originally wrongly convicted of the murder.

After he was exonerated, Hupp became implicated in the murder and she was charged with first-degree murder in July last year.

Betsy’s husband Russell was originally accused of murder but he was released from prison and awarded more than £1million in compensation. Pam is believed to have framed him for the crime.

In the new series, which aired last month, her face was altered with prosthetics to give her a larger jaw and nose, and her hair was styled into a light blonde bob.
