The Thing About Pam: Renee Zellweger's Weight Gain Secret for Pam Revealed!

Fans are wondering if Renee Zellweger underwent weight gain for the role of Pam on The Thing About Pam. Turns out, Renee Zellweger did not gain weight, rather the Pam Hupp actress used prosthetics, padding, and cosmetics.

The latest NBC crime drama, The Thing About Pam, is about Pam Hupp's role in the killing of Betsy Faria. The plot focuses on the same-named true-crime podcast on Dateline NBC.

Pam (Renee Zellweger) is dealing with the consequences of her good friend Betsy's passing in the series. The six-episode program explores the numerous dimensions of Pam's psyche and examines several interesting elements of the legitimate case.

Despite the fact that actress Renee Zellweger impresses in her part as Pam, some fans may struggle to identify her due to her altered look for the character.

The star's speculated weight gain (just as Katy Mixon) and how she attained the ideal appearance for the role will be inevitably discussed during Zellweger's time as Pam. We've got you covered with all the details.

Previously, we touched on the weight gain efforts of Vladimir Putin and Sara Tomko.

Did Renee Zellweger Gain Weight for The Thing About Pam?

In The Thing About Pam, the talented Renee Zellweger is debuting in network television, playing the character of Pam Hupp. Zellweger also acts as the show's executive producer.

The actress first gained notoriety after a modest role in filmmaker Richard Linklater's popular coming-of-age picture Dazed and Confused, released in 1993. With the exception of a few outings in TV films and cable channels, Zellweger spent the majority of her career on the silver screen.

The actress received critical praise for her roles as Bridget Jones in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) and Ruby Thewes in Cold Mountain (2003) and she turned into a household figure.

Renee Zellweger is the recipient of an Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in the 2019 film Judy. It's no wonder that she opted to take on a new assignment by playing Pam Hupp, given her significant credentials and vast experience portraying many difficult characters.

Hupp's physical attractiveness, on the other hand, differs slightly from that of the famous actress. To attain the intended look and fit Hupp's body, Zellweger used prosthetics, padding, and cosmetics. As a result, the actress appears unidentifiable and takes on Pam's demeanor.

Speaking with Vanity Fair, Zellweger discussed her change for the character of Pam, and it had nothing to do with weight gain.

It was pretty much head to toe. It was prosthetics, it was a [padded] suit, it was the choice of clothing, it was the briskness in her step-step-step, her gait. All of those things were really important because all those bits and pieces are what construct the person that we project our own conclusions and presumptions onto.

Not everybody is pleased with Renee Zellweger and the series's decision to use prosthetics rather than employ an actress who accurately reflects Hupp's body.

Some fans turned to Twitter to voice their displeasure with Zellweger's physical makeover, which included the use of prosthetics and a fat suit.

Overall, Renee Zellweger did not undergo any sort of weight gain for her role, and recent advances in makeup and prostheses are vital to her portrayal as Pam Hupp in The Thing About Pam.
