Fact: Bridget Jones is all of us, and we are all Bridget Jones. 

Played by Renée Zellweger, Bridget Jones came to life in the iconic rom-com Bridget Jones's Diary and since then has been a go-to when you need a good laugh or a good cry. Bridget Jones drinks too much, smokes too much, falls in love and gets her heartbroken, all while managing to make it as a successful woman to whom we can relate. From her witty quips to her heinous cringe moments, Bridget Jones has said it all and done it all, so here are 10 times she really embodied all of us.

1. Having a bad day? There's a drink for that, and that drink is vodka.

2. When we accidentally say out loud what we're thinking. Eek!

3. When we're really feeling our flaws.

4. Nothing solves life's problems like a pint of ice cream and bed. 

5. When you just can't even.

6. When nothing ever seems to go right.

7. Monday morning after a very unhealthy weekend.

8. When you realize you're worth so much more.

9. When you attempt to be...outdoorsy.

10. When life actually happens to go your way.
