Jennifer Connelly Introduction
Early years and and early career
So what if she rarely smiles in her films? The gorgeous star of such hits as A Beautiful Mind and The Hulk, Jennifer tends to keep her acting serious. Her career began when a friend of the family suggested she try modeling, and at the age of ten, she was seen in newspaper and magazine ads across the country. Eventually, she fell into the world of acting with small roles in films such as Once Upon a Time in a America. She got her first starring in Italian horror-director Dario Argento's Phenomena (1985)and gained international stardom for her role in the cult classic Labyrinth, where she stars with the villainous David Bowie.
As young Jennifer grew up, filmmakers took notice of her amazing body, and in the 1990 Dennis Hopper directed film Hot Spot, Connelly filmed her first topless scene. And while she kept her clothes on later that year for the teen comedy Career Opportunities, that film does contain the best mechanical horse scene of all time. The role of Veronica in the film Heathers, was written with Connelly in mind, but after she turned it down, it went to Winona Ryder. She starred in The Rocketeer a year later.
Mid 1990's - present career
As the mid 1990's arrived, Jennifer wanted to leave her sexpot image behind, and during this period; she showed off her acting ability in small independent films. By 1998 she was getting recognized more for her talent than her beauty, as she stared in the critically acclaimed Dark City and the nightmarish Requiem for a Dream in 2000. In 2001, Connelly won an Academy Award for best actress for her role in A Beautiful Mind. In 2007, she starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamond, and will appear next year in He's Just Not That Into You with Drew Barrymore and Scarlett Johansson. It was recently announced that she will also star in the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.
Personal and family life
Her first son, Kai, was born in 1997, from her relationship with photographer David Dugan.
On January 1, 2003, she married actor Paul Bettany, whom she had met while working on A Beautiful Mind, in a private family ceremony in Scotland. The couple's first child, Stellan, named after their friend, actor Stellan Skarsgård, was born the same year. She gave birth to her third child, Agnes Lark, on May 31, 2011, in New York City.
