After much anticipation (and quite a few on-set glimpses), we're finally getting our first look at the cast of the new Bridget Jones film, and it looks like Ms. Jones has gotten herself into quite the conundrum.

Renée Zellweger appears on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly alongside her co-stars Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey. "Bridget Jones is back! Our favorite wanton sex goddess returns in Bridget Jones's Baby. Get the v. big scoop," the headline reads. In the third installment to the series, the main character finds herself pregnant, although she isn't sure who the father is. Enter on-again-off-again boyfriend Mark Darcy (Firth) and billionaire Mark Qwant (Dempsey).

Inside the issue, Zellweger opens up about the beloved character. "This is part of the new challenge, discovering where she is now in her new life," she tells EW. "But as an actress, it feels like stepping back with an old friend. I love this character, I like that she tells stories about what it’s like to be a woman and these really relatable situations at certain times in life. It’s so right to tell a story about Bridget in this stage of her life." Head over to to read more, plus pick up the new issue of the magazine today.
