(Newser) – After a change in her appearance garnered much discussion, Renee Zellweger says she's happy with the opinion of some. "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she tells People. Still, she sees all the hubbub as "silly." Why respond? Well, "it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door." Previously, she hadn't been doing a good job taking care of herself, she adds, but that's changed. "People don't know me [as] healthy for a while," she says, as E! Online notes. "Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."
