Renée Zellweger's been on a roll lately. She won the Best Actress Oscar in 2020 for Judy, and she also stars in the forthcoming NBC limited series The Thing About Pam.
But there was also a bit of time — basically, most of the 2010s — where Zellweger wasn't in too many movies, and was effectively taking a break from the spotlight.
In a recent interview on Today, the actor revealed what she did during her break from acting.
As it turns out, she went back to school.
“I went to school and just took some time out and decided that maybe I would want to participate in a different way,” she said.
Specifically, she attended UCLA "to study public policy, international law. Very interesting, I am interested in politics.”
From the way she talks, it sounds like she has a real passion for it — but Renée insisted that you don't want to get her going on the topic.
“I’ll bore you to death at a dinner party. I really will,” she joked. “Don’t get me started.”
