Ant Anstead tells girlfriend Renee Zellweger to 'leave the wardrobe at home' from new crime show


Ant Anstead couldn’t help but joke about his girlfriend Renee Zellweger’s shocking transformation for her new series The Thing About Pam.

While promoting the two-time Oscar winner’s latest project, in which she portrays convicted killer Pam Hupp, the 42-year-old British TV host pleaded with his other half to please ‘leave the wardrobe at work.’

‘This is one bonkers crazy story coming March 8th to @nbc @nbcnews @blumhouse #thethingaboutpam,’ he captioned a video of the trailer to his Instagram on Sunday. ‘An Epic cast including the smoke show Ren.’

Anstead was nodding to the facial and body prosthetics put on Zelwegger, which took 80 minutes to apply each day on set. 

Zellweger, 52, also wore a full body suit for the first time as she opted not to gain weight for the role, citing the negative impact that putting on 30 pounds for Bridget Jones’ Diary had on her health. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, makeup artist Arjen Tuiten told Variety that he initially held Zoom sessions with Zellweger to assess her willingness to undergo the grueling application process on a daily basis.

He noted that in his 20 years of experience, actors tend to underestimate how long the process will actually take when they commit to a role that requires extensive prosthetic use.

However, Tuiten told the outlet that the actress said she was willing to do whatever it took to play Pam.

As part of his research, Tuiten watched videos of the real-life Pam to observe her expressions and physical movements such as how she held her arms.

He added, ‘I also looked at her nose and how it would look when she turned. Or I would see things like where she had plastic surgery.’

Makeup department head Carla Brenholtz told Variety that the team aimed to give Pam a relatable and familiar look.

Brenholtz explained, ‘She was a character that anybody could say, ‘That’s my daughter’s best friend’s mom.’ And that was how we created the other characters; we created them around her.’
