When Re­nee Zell­weger was named to play Judy Gar­land in a n new biopic, one per­son who w wasn’t thrilled was Judy’s daugh­ter Liza Min­nelli! Friends say the 71-yearold is fum­ing over the film that’s set to de­pict Judy’s booze and drug-filled fi­nal days. “Liza hates how it plans to por­tray her mum and d tried to shame Re­nee into back­ing out,” says a source.

But Re­nee, 48, is de­ter­mined to go ahead with the movie, which is already gen­er­at­ing award buzz. “She thinks Liza is be­ing a drama queen and isn’t both­ered by her protests,” says a friend “She has her eye on an Os­car!”

Liza fears her mum’s mem­ory will be tar­nished.

Re­nee is an­gling for an Os­car.
