Renée Zellweger is very pleased with the paparazzi, reports.

On Wednesday, the actress, 40, was in the middle of ordering drinks at a Starbucks in Santa Monica, Calif., when a paparazzo outside noticed her parking metre was about to expire. To save her from getting a ticket, he slipped a few coins in the meter.

Appreciative, Zellweger — who is now dating Bradley Cooper — returned to the coffee chain, bought a $100 gift card and rewarded the photographer.

On the back of the card, she personally expressed her gratitude: “Wow. Thank you so much for the kindness,” she wrote.

“Warmly, with gratitude. Renée.”
