Renee Zellweger Weds Country Star Kenny Chesney
Renee Zellweger of Bridget Jones fame and country music crooner Kenny Chesney were married Monday in a quiet and intimate ceremony on the Caribbean island of St. John where Chesney currently lives. The newlyweds met last January when they both participated in a tsunami relief benefit concert. Zellweger was taking pledges by telephone while Chesney was performing.
The music industry magazine, Country Weekly once reported that 37 year-old Chesney had declared Zellweger, 36 his favourite actress after seeing her in the 1996 Tom Cruise movie, ‘Jerry Maguire’. Her performance in that movie inspired the country singer to write his hit song, ‘You Had Me From Hello’.
This is a first marriage for both.
Let’s hope this works out, lest he be forced to write the follow-up, “Show Me the Money.”
