While she’s denied reports that her fresh-faced look is the result of a little nip and tuck, even Bridget Jones’s Baby star would admit she looks totes unrecognisable from her days as a cheerleader in the tiny town of Katy, Texas.

And we’re not just talking about that mullet. So cringe!

Take a peek inside her high-school yearbook… Ah, memories!

Fringe Flashback

Here's Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger sporting classic 80s looks in her high school yearbook photos. The actress was a cheerleader and voted "Dream Date" in her senior year by her classmates at Katy High School in Katy, Texas, where she graduated in 1987. Busy Renee was a member of the Drama, French and Speech clubs and the sophomore class vice-president during her four years at the school. The future star was trend-setter in her sophomore year, posing in a sweater, shirt and tie and penny loafers for a feature on fashion. Renee was a part of the Homecoming Queen's Court as a senior and also posed for the cameras at the Christmas dance. She was a member of the Good Sportsmanship League, which helped Katy High build up good relationships with other schools.

Even with that sky-high layered fringe, a teenage Renee was voted ‘Dream Date’ by her male classmates
