Renee Zellweger stars in the upcoming film Judy, the life story of Judy Garland. To prepare for the role, she took music lessons, studied choreography and read up about the actress and singer, who shot to fame in 1939 when she played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz but struggled later in life. The film will focus on the last year of the singer’s life before she died of a drug overdose at the age of 47.
What does Judy Garland’s daughter Lisa Minnelli think of the film: “I do not approve nor sanction the upcoming film about Judy Garland in any way.”
The film hits theaters September 27th.
