She's never been afraid to truly dive into a role.
And Renee Zellweger was nearly unrecognizable in character as famed actress Judy Garland in the first-look pictures of new biopic Judy, released on Tuesday morning.
The 48-year-old star donned a short brunette wig to portray the Hollywood icon in the true story about her final concerts in London, nearly 30 years after Garland starred as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
The image captures Renee as Judy onstage in a floral dress, perfectly resembling the one once worn by the icon.
She captures the actress' mannerisms with precision; her arm rested on one elbow and her head tilted back as she captures a note in an old-fashioned microphone.
Renee's trademark blonde hair is also disguised completely by a well-coiffed brown wig with a large bouffant characteristic of Garland's image.
