Recognize This Star? Renee Zellweger Looks Very Different.

The star's "new face" has social media abuzz. Twitter is being really mean today.

Tweeters noticed that a "new" Renee Zellweger walked the red carpet Monday at the Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood event.  The “Jerry Maguire” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary” actress does look decidedly different from her mega-hit days. 

Comments across social media were less than flattering. "Renee Zellweger" was trending Tuesday morning on Twitter with many "OMG what happened?" comments. 

 Plastic surgery transformations have impacted Hollywood careers before.  Jennifer Grey had two plastic surgeries on her nose that left her appearance more changed than she anticipated. The new look didn't help Grey's career. Will it have an impact on Zellwegers? 

Many stood up for Zellweger and took trollers to task. 

Zellweger's last film, My Own Love Song, was released in 2010. Her latest film, "The Whole Truth," is due to hit theaters in 2015.
