Celeb Getaway: Renee Zellweger

Thursday, May 22, 2008

What is your favourite vacation spot and why?

Oh, I don't know. I don't get vacations. My house, because I'm always away from it … I have no interest in somebody else's hotel room bed; I have no interest in being in another bed that's not mine in another nice hotel … [I have no interest in] another airport or another airplane; I just want to be at my house and sit still and re-familiarise myself with my life. So that's my favourite vacation spot.

Where's your ultimate destination spot, somewhere you haven't been but always wanted to go?

I need to go to India. I need to go to Maine; I've never been to Maine — it looks kinda pretty to me. And to [British Columbia] … Where else do I need to go? Iceland looks really interesting to me. I hear there's wonderful music in Iceland and I'd like to check that out. There we go I think that's it. Apparently I want to go to lunch, that would be my ultimate destination for today, lord.

What's your number one travel tip?

Don't bring it, just don't. They say it's better to bring it and be prepared — no it's not. Just don't bring it because I promise you'll make do. I once took a road trip with a plastic bag from the grocery store, a toothbrush, toothpaste and an extra pair of socks or something, and it was fantastic. I was gone for four days, washed my socks in the sink, and used the blow-dryer that they give you at the little crappy motel … Fantastic, so wonderful. It's so much nicer then schlepping.

What's something you never leave home without?

My BlackBerry and my iPod.

Gotta have your music?

Yeah I do, I do. Any, you know; pick three colours that's it. Pick three colours that go together, mix and match. You don't really need that purple dress that requires that you bring three different bags and three different shoes you don't, you know it's true.

You've been to Australia right?

Oh, you know once or twice; I know some people.

What was your favourite travel experience there?

I was 17 and I went and met my grandfather for the first time.


He lived in a little community up the [NSW Central] Coast called Toukley.

You get around!

How sad that Renee didn't meet her grandpa until she was 17, what a shame for her. Still, whatever and whoever has shaped her life so far has made one sexy, sassy, talented lady. Loved her in Cold Mountain, shows her versatility as an actor. Go girl !!
Nice lady but seems a bit boring dont you think?
wow, an american who knows places out of the us, im impressed!
