LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Renee Zellweger made headlines Tuesday after stepping out at Elle's 21st annual Women In Hollywood Awards the night before with an unfamiliar look.
Zellweger, 45, looked almost unrecognizable at the event as she seems to have smoothed the lines on her forehead and altered her brow and cheekbones.
A facial reconstructive surgeon who has never treated the actress told Hollywood Life her new look might suggest that Zellweger has been caring for her skin with laser treatments.
"Her skin is radiant and shows that she has been likely doing facials, peels and possibly laser treatments to maintain that perfect complexion," said Dr. Yael Halaas.
Zellweger, who has been on an acting hiatus since 2010, will return to the silver screen in 2015 in director Courtney Hunt's thriller The Whole Truth.
