The weather was not kind to Renee Zellweger and Jerry Seinfeld
Hollywood actors Renee Zellweger and Jerry Seinfeld braved the rain at the UK premiere of animation film Bee Movie in London's Leicester Square.

Zellweger complained to reporters she was so wet that her dress "weighs about six stone".

Seinfeld voices a bee called Barry who tries to sue the human race for selling honey for profit, while Zellweger plays a florist called Vanessa.

"She is very quick-witted," the actor said of his Oscar-winning co-star.

Box office hit

Seinfeld also co-wrote and produced the film.

"I've seen it hundreds of times, but I still really enjoy it," he said.

The voice cast also includes Matthew Broderick, John Goodman and Chris Rock.

The film, which has made over $130m (64m) overseas, opens in the UK on 14 December.

Zellweger's last big movie outing was Miss Potter, in which she played the classic children's author Beatrix Potter.
