LATEST: Actress Renee Zellweger has been given the chance to buy her
favourite cafe in California.
The CHICAGO star was thrilled when she checked out the remote BAGDAD
(corr) CAFE on America's Route 66 in Newberry Springs and discovered a clipping
about her hanging on the billboard.
Earlier this month (MAY03), Zellweger excitedly told TV host Jay Leno that
she spent years dreaming of visiting the diner ever since she saw the place in
the film BAGDAD CAFE.
She recalled of her visit there, "It was a nice afternoon. As I left I saw
this billboard of newspaper clippings of great love stories and there it was,
the little clip of me with Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire.
"It was so bizarre. I've wanted to go to the Bagdad Cafe and then my
picture was on a bulletin board. Life is weird."
And now an advertisement has been taken out in Hollywood trade publication
DAILY VARIETY offering her the chance to own it - and the six acres that
Agent AL SHAFRAN tells her in the ad, "Put your studio here or let Jay
ride his bikes here!"
The property is on offer for $350,000 (GBP230,000).
