Let it be known that Liza Minnelli is not happy about Renee Zellweger playing her mom, Judy Garland, in the upcoming biopic Judy.
It all started when Radar Online published a now-deleted article falsely claiming that Minnelli and Zellweger were “bonding” over the movie. That’s when Minnelli took to Facebook to shoot down the report, calling it “100% fiction.”
“I have never met nor spoken to Renee Zellweger,” Minnelli writes. “I don’t know how these stories get started, but I do not approve nor sanction the upcoming film about Judy Garland in any way. Any reports to the contrary are 100% Fiction.”
You got that, folks?
Judy tells the story of the Hollywood legend towards the end of her life. Zellweger plays Garland in 1968, the year before her untimely death caused by an overdose of barbiturates.
Minnelli is the oldest of Garland’s three characters, born in 1946 to Garland and director Vincente Minnelli. She will be portrayed by Gemma-Leah Devereux in the film, which is set for release later this year.
