"You had my seat at hello"

Nice to know there's still a few with class in Hollywood. Well done Renee.

J said...

Nice for the lady, miserable for the passengers who paid extra hoping for peace and quiet.

@J: Im with you. I’m normally nice like Renee, but right now I’m on a train on the way to someone’s wake and I’m pretty sad. I specifically sat in the ‘quiet car’, but everyone was on their phones. I mentioned to a few people that we were in the quiet car, and to please get off their phones and they wouldn’t. Finally got the conductor and she made them all move to another car. Ah, peace and quiet.

I've heard more than once that Renee is really kind. It's too bad after she did the Bridget Jones series all anyone could talk about is her body and weight. She's got actual talent that is often overlooked.

Classy (I mean this sincerely).

Trapped said...

That’s what people do daily.. Goodwill for her fellow human being.
I know that’s lost in this day and time, but the world will always have good and bad.

What "first class" train service overbooks seating?
That's for us peons on coach or regular.
If it's "first class" then I imagine you're wafted to your seat by a host of angels and handfed panda steak and dodo eggs.
Obviously this doesn't apply to British trains where 'first class' is a 50/50 chance of not being puked upon.
But if there is one thing the USA is admired for in the wider world, its being able to get your shit together for those who can afford to fork out.

I call bullshit on this one. And I like Renee.

Asking her team is too much...
Like Ellen forcing everyone to adopt puppies!

Jon said...

Why sould anyone give up their seats for some chick with a gaggle of kids? If she can't handle them all while out in public then she should stay home.

And for those saying Renee is so nice, I think she should think about her employees FIRST before she orders them to give up their seats to strangers.

Any of these movies worth seeing? I am
thinking Judy might be worth the money?

It’s Eurostar if she was travelling across the channel, which I believe she was when the blind first came out. Sorry no dodo eggs Flashy Vic, but you do get a little table with a light on it and your meals delivered to said table. I’m pretty sure everyone on Eurostar has an allocated seat, whether you are travelling in a first class or a standard carriage, but perhaps that family’s seats weren’t together. It very kind of RenĂ©e to move for them. If she was travelling in standard on any other British train service, it is survival of the fittest.

That's like the time I had an aisle seat on the public transit bus and the nitwitted older woman sitting next to me by the window decided that she wanted to give up her seat to a kid. So I had to get up to let her out, and as soon as I did, the kid's nanny sat down in my seat. The old bag was like "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you'd lose your seat." Me: "Are you really *that* stupid???"

Freebird said...

I’m sorry for your loss (the wake, not the passengers).

@ Sumby HUH? She won an Oscar for COLD MOUNTAIN. Sure Bridget was wildly successful so it was talked about a lot but I didn't see what you were talking about. If anything maybe her WOE as me social life was often fodder for tabloids and discussion..

Goodau said...

I wonder who reported this kindness? The staff who had to give up their seats or the woman with 3 children, no seats and a hot line to a PR company or newspaper?

Cerebral Kotex said...

She had just peed on the seat.

Superfly said...

The Eurostar is extremely civilised in second class also. Not wanting take anything away from the classy Renee' Zellwegger, but we're not talking about some crappy ole' peasant train here, since I have travelled both first and second class on the Eurostar.

JL said...

And her eyes. Her eyes are via her Norwegian mother who had Sami forebears. Sami eyes. And the crap heaped on is disgusting.

Unknown said...

Nice to hear since most of the blind comment/reveals are kinds of awful. Thanks for this!

DWelsh said...

So she was a normal human being, then?
