During an exclusive interview with ET in October, Zellweger admitted that she purposefully keeps her distance from the public and has no interest in joining social media. "Don't you think a little mystery is a good idea?" she pondered. "I might just be lazy and think that it's too much of a commitment to post things."

"I try to call my mom during the day and answer the row of emails that have come in," Zellweger added. "That seems like enough for me, and I don't know that tweeting is always a safe bet, depending on how emotional your day is."
