The 'New in Town' actress Renee Zellweger has revealed she loves being in the countryside
Renee Zellweger craves country life.
The 'New in Town' actress, who grew up in rural Texas, loves being outdoors but also feels at home in the city.
She said: "I am both a city girl and a country girl at heart. When I was growing up I was in a really rural community, so that's in my blood and really appeals to me. The city also appealed to me but in a very different way. I feel very comfortable in both those places and I crave both of those environments - but the country is where I came from. If I'm in the city for too long I have to take a road trip."
However, the actress' love of the great outdoors couldn't prepare her for the sub-zero temperatures she faced when filming her latest film 'New in Town'.
Renee recently revealed the cold Canadian conditions on the Winnipeg set were nothing short of "educational".
She said: "It was highly entertaining and very educational. I didn't know cold like that; it was a whole different kind of experience. It was a marvellous exercise in developing new survival skills. It was a whole new language for the biological things that happen."
