Renee Zellweger has been using the same “magic” Tod’s handbag for the past 16 years.

The Judy actress, who appears on the cover of the December 2019 issue of U.S. InStyle magazine, opened up about some of her favourite accessories in an accompanying interview. While Renee can undoubtedly get her hands on any designer purses she likes, she confessed in the chat that she is particularly loyal to a large bag made by Italian leather goods label Tod’s.

“I got this Tod’s bag as a gift in 2003 and haven’t taken it off since,” she gushed to the publication. “It weighs nothing and carries everything. It’s magic. I can carry not only the contents of my day’s necessities, but also a computer, a script, a large water bottle, a floor-length down parka and snow boots all at once.”

Renee’s other go-to items include running shoes from Brooks and sneakers from Adidas and Converse, as well as her University of Texas at Austin baseball cap and trusty jeans.

“You can get a lot of miles on a good T, good jeans, and a good boot,” the 50-year-old insisted.

However, if the blonde star needs to dress up for a Hollywood event, she will look to designers such as Herve Pierre, Schiaparelli, Carolina Herrera, and Ulyana Sergeenko, as well as David Yurman and David Webb for rings. And if Renee ever needed to re-wear any of her red carpet dresses, she knows exactly what she would choose.

“I would re-wear my Schiaparelli Haute Couture dress from the London premiere of Bridget Jones’s Baby,” she noted.

Patrick Dempsey finds ‘real joy’ in practising meditation

Patrick Dempsey has found practising meditation helps him find “real joy”.

The actor launched his career in the 1980s and has since gone on to star in a string of hit films, such as Sweet Home Alabama and Bridget Jones’s Baby, as well as becoming recognised around the world for his performance as Dr. Derek Shepherd in TV show Grey’s Anatomy.

Dempsey began learning about meditation around three decades ago, and he has now shared how the practice has taught him to embrace the moment.

Recalling how he was once advised that “the process is the product,” during an interview with ABC News’ Dan Harris for his podcast, the star commented, “I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ But the doing is the real joy, not the end result – it’s not what it’s gonna be for me. It’s not the satisfying thing.”

Dempsey went on to explain that the other important thing meditation has taught him is the ability to put aside what other people may do or think.

“You have to not worry about what other people think and what you think. Which is the hardest thing to remember,” the 53-year-old mused. “Because if it’s just when you’re worried about how you look or how you present yourself – you’re never gonna be satisfied. You’re just not. No matter what anybody says to you at the end of day is still going to leave you empty.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Dempsey spoke about how he is now able to “be private in a public arena” and the gratification he receives from philanthropic endeavours.

“Certainly, the centre is what life is about in many ways because altruism, giving back to the community and doing something not for yourself, but for your fellow man or woman, that’s what life is about. That’s true satisfaction. Everything else is a distraction from that,” he added.
