There's something eminently appealing about the way Renée Zellweger's circa 1953 New York City socialite dispenses with her philandering husband in the lovely little bit of nostalgia that is "My One and Only." She tosses some clothes in a suitcase, pushes the other woman out the door just for good measure, cleans out the safety deposit box, pulls her sons out of prep school, as soon as she can figure out which one they're attending these days, and sets off on a grand adventure nestled in the cushy leather of a baby blue Coupe deVille.

Heroes frequently don't make front page headlines. "Living Proof," which stars Harry Connick Jr. and premieres on Lifetime tonight, chronicles the 12-year effort of one such unsung hero, UCLA's Dr. Dennis Slamon, to develop the breast cancer drug Herceptin. Since its approval by the Food and Drug Administration a decade ago, Herceptin, which targets a genetic alteration called Her-2 found in roughly a quarter of breast cancer patients, has saved thousands of lives.

In the last of the major ceremonial awards in Hollywood's run-up to the Oscars, Daniel Day-Lewis was chosen best male actor for his wicked turn as Bill the Butcher in "Gangs of New York," and Renee Zellweger was named best female actor as the merry murderess in the musical "Chicago" on Sunday night at the ninth annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. "Chicago" also took the award for best movie ensemble, and Catherine Zeta-Jones was named best supporting female actor.

Renee Zellweger, who has filed for an annulment from husband Kenny Chesney after just four months of marriage, says the couple "hope to experience this transition as privately as possible." In court papers filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the Oscar-winning actress listed "fraud" as the reason for the breakup with the country music star. The term was "simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny's character," Zellweger, 36, said in a statement Friday.

"A Price Above Rubies," which showcases Renee Zellweger in a challenging role, is yet another movie that gives Brooklyn's Hasidic community a bad rap. As a child, Zellweger's Sonia, precocious daughter of a jewelry merchant, instantly proclaims as a fake the ruby her 10-year-old older brother gives her, and to redeem himself he goes off for a midnight swim in a lake and drowns.

Your Calendar article on the long-awaited movie version of "Chicago" (Nov. 3) mentioned that the shoot took place in Toronto, rather than Chicago -- or at the very least another U.S. city -- and that disturbed me. As someone who works in the U.S. film industry, I've grown weary of the U.S.-based film and television producers and executives' endless pursuit of across-the-border "incentives" (a.k.a. corporate welfare) to make American stories on foreign soil, leaving U.S. workers (and many actors)

"Nurse Betty" is a masquerade that doesn't work. A noticeably sour fairy tale that mixes violence and cynicism with once-upon-a-time qualities, it was never fated to be "Snow White." But having Neil LaBute as the director has made the worst of the situation.

Johnny Depp, in a genuine upset, was named best lead male movie actor for his comedic turn as the flamboyant Capt. Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," on Sunday night at the 10th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Depp, a no-show at the ceremony, also is nominated for an Oscar, but has been considered a longshot for both awards.

"Beans for breakfast. Beans and toast. It's rainy and cold, and that's what you feel like: beans and toast." That's Renee Zellweger, describing her diet while filming "Bridget Jones's Diary" in England last year. All that toast, along with croissants and cheesecake and buttered biscuits at tea time, added 17 pounds to Zellweger's usually slight frame. "You know that food coma you go into at Thanksgiving? Seven months!" exclaims Zellweger, with the slightest wisp of a Texas twang.
