MILAN — Renée Zellweger is well respected for her versatility and a dose of pluck in taking on challenging roles, from the goofy and lovable quintessentially British “singleton” Bridget Jones, which won over plenty of naysayers displeased that Zellweger hails from Texas, to the feisty Civil War-era farm girl Ruby in “Cold Mountain.” Her off-screen role as ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger in its support of nonprofit organization Breast Health Institute is also one she takes very seriously.

“If there’s a positive way to experience having a public persona, then this is certainly it,” Zellweger said in an interview at Hilfiger’s Milan headquarters on Wednesday. “I understand there’s a curiosity about people in films, music and entertainment, or those who are perceived as taste makers — what they are interested in, what they are wearing, where they are going. If this in some way can raise awareness about the initiative between Tommy Hilfiger and BHI, then great, all the better.”
