Renee Zellweger's friend has banned the movie beauty from attending the wild BURNING MAN desert rave in Nevada, America, this summer (05).

The OSCAR-winning actress was desperate to attend the annual bash, where 30,000 people strip naked, experiment with drugs, and build a temporary community based on radical self expression and self-reliance.

But her pal fears she wouldn't be able to handle the bizarre event.

Zellweger complains, "She wouldn't let me.

"I'd be like a goldfish hiking through the desert without its bowl."
