Patrick Dempsey and Wife Pack on the PDA, Renee Zellweger Stuns at 'Bridget Jones's Baby' Premiere
By John Boone
Patrick Dempsey was feeling the love at the Bridget Jones's Baby premiere.
The 50-year-old actor and his wife, Jillian, reconciled this year after she filed for divorce in January 2015. ("You have to work at everything," he previously explained.) And on the red carpet, the couple shared some sweet PDA, holding hands as he whispered in her ear.
The premiere, which was held at Odeon Leicester Square in London, was a family affair, as the Dempseys were joined by their 14-year-old daughter, Tallula, and 9-year-old twin boys, Darby and Sullivan.
Meanwhile, Renée Zellweger arrived with her boyfriend, musician Doyle Bramhall II, and wore a stunning, one-shoulder silk Elsa Schiaparelli gown with a funky metallic accent.
The 47-year-old actress also had an adorable moment on the carpet where she introduced herself to Dempsey's sons.
The latest Bridget Jones sequel marks Zellweger's grand return after nearly six years away from the spotlight, time that she said she used to "explore new things."
"I hope I'm a little less boring than I might have been after just 25 years of being an actress," she reflected during a press conference on Monday. "And I was craving a little normalcy. I wanted to learn something new and grow as a person and see if I had aptitude for these things that interest me. And if not now, it would be, 'Oh, in two more years, or three years, then ten years', and then just, ultimately, you just don't do them."
Zellweger also spoke to ET about how she prepared to play a mom in Bridget Jones's Baby and making granny panties "acceptable." Find out what she had to say in the video below.
