Renee Zellweger Pays It Forward In Starbucks

Renee-zellweger Renee Zellweger. Can't really say I'm a fan. She's a little too wound-up for my liking and often looks just too thin, not to mention too squinty, and too puckered (and too waxen.) That's a whole lot of 'too's. But for about fourteen seconds this week I liked her just a teensy bit when she gave some dude a hundred bucks for saving her from a parking ticket.

Mind you, she probably just did it for the paparazzi.

Oh wait, she did do it for the paparazzi.

Turns out while she was ordering in Starbucks one of the annoying paps who dedicates his life to following her every move just so I can write stories tried to endear himself to Renee by putting money in her meter just as it was about to expire. So she gave him a $100 Starbucks gift card.

Kind of like rewarding a peeping tom for scaring off the tax man, isn't it?

Anyway. It's not often I read about celebrities being nice to paparazzi and vice-versa (save for Britney and her special pap Adnan -- remember them?) and for once I wanted to write a pleasant story involving celebrities and paparazzi just getting along. Is that too much to ask?

Obviously I'm delirious folks. I think I just need more sleep and I'll be back to craving celebrity dirt in no time flat.

this is funny to me for a few reasons:
1. starbucks gift card? i would rather just have cash myself. she afraid he would spend it on something undesirable? like film.

2. how much could the ticket have been? more than $100? really? i doubt that.

i feel like she happened to have gotten a big giftcard in a swag bag and realized she needed to do something and then gave him her leftovers.

@mouthy_broad OMG, I think you nailed it with that last bit -- it is like she just regifted from her swag bag (which *cough* I do to my family but I plead 'no money').

$100 Starbuck's Gift Card=Lots of coffee=lots of peeing. Maybe she was hoping she could just eventually ditch him while he was in the bathroom. Clever.

That's brilliant, Apryl. If true, me love Renée long time.

@katie/motherbumper well, it is clearly ok for us poor folk to do that! but i thought the celebs had the decency to give their castoffs to their maid. now there is one unhappy uncaffeinated maid in LA.

@mouthy_broad: You just made me laugh so hard that it made my day. Thank you. I'mma gonna start a fundraiser for the unhappy uncaffeinated maids of LA.

I'm going to take the unpopular stance of Awwwww. I actually really like her, despite my constant need to try to teach her to smile like she means it.
