Hollywood beauty Renee Zellweger never dreamt of setting herself the target of winning an OSCAR, because she prefers to let her life follow its natural course.

Although collecting the prestigious ACADEMY AWARD normally provides a major career boost for many actors, the 35-year-old has never craved fame and adulation, preferring instead to learn and evolve as an actress.

And Zellweger admits that receiving the gong for the 2003 blockbuster Cold MOUNTAIN has failed to convince her she's been promoted to the Hollywood elite.

She jokes, "It feels a little bit like I went down to the Hollywood souvenir shop, bought it and brought it home.

"I've never known what my ambitions were in the first place except being challenged and to do interesting things and to learn."
