Rene Russo is the Spirit of Hollywood


We were honored to speak with the beautiful and talented Rene Russo on the red carpet at the Annual Talk of the Town Gala. Russo was given the prestigious Spirit of Hollywood Award whose efforts have in some way called attention to the devastating effect of cancer and the importance of raising money for cancer research.

The star studded event was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies on Saturday, November 21st.

The Nightcrawler star stopped to chat with New You about fitness, fashion and life.

“We go through life right; we have disappointments and great joys, we get bummed out, we get horrified and we are overjoyed and that’s the stuff,” she speaks cheerfully about her craft as an actress.

The 61-year old veteran actress goes on to tell us her fitness faves which include walking and weight training. She also says, “Everything in moderation. I have a constitution that I can’t eat bad every day. But it’s delicious and I suppose if I could eat donuts and bacon everyday, I’d probably go for it.” You, along with the rest of the world Rene!

The interview ends with a laugh as Russo tells us the latest addition to her wardrobe is a French jacket that reminds her of Daniel Boone. “I’ve always wanted to be Daniel Boone. It’s a fringe, 1960’s jacket that takes me back to my youth.”

She is just so delightful and wonderful! We are glad to have spoken with one of Hollywood’s most respected member in the entertainment industry. If you’d like to learn more about the charity event, please visit the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies website.
