Being in the spotlight can definitely take a toll on celebs working ’round the clock. In this week’s People magazine cover story, Renée Zellweger opens up about what it’s like to finally find a level of health, love, and happiness after a six-year break from the industry and we’re happy to report, she’s doing well!

The issue covers Zellweger’s quiet struggle with the constant pressure of being in the public eye and how taking a break from acting became a necessity for her mental and physical health. These things aren’t easy to admit so we’re bowing down to Renee for doing what was best, despite possible backlash.

Catch the interview below:

With a career that took off and never really stopped, it’s evident the Oscar winner’s break has proven a good thing in both her personal and professional life.

Amidst recent rumors of facial plastic surgery, she went on to say,

Exhaustion isn’t something easily overcome so we give Renée major props for being so open and honest about the struggle. With a relationship with Doyle Bramhall II, a singer/guitarist from Texas, and the much anticipated Bridget Jones’s Baby movie on the way, it’s clear Renee is much happier with where her life is headed at the moment and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see her back in action.

Sage advice for us all! Zellweger returns to the screen in Bridget Jones’s Baby, in theaters September 16th.
