Jennifer Connelly & 80's Fantasy Films

I watched Labyrinth this weekend which I find extremely appropriate due to the upcoming Star Wars excitement! The film was directed by: Jim Henson!!! …… how I love Jim, hes the guy that gave me one of my top favorite 80’s fantasy adventure films “The Dark Crystal”  and fed my obsession with David Bowie in “Labyrinth”… (I still CANT believe The Dark Crystal was a box office flop but I guess if your movie is coming out along with E.T that’s bound to happen)  Oh and how can I forget he brought to life the cute Kermit the Frog!!!

He joined it in time to see United Airlines Flight 175 hit the World Trade Center. For the next two days, he found himself dialing and redialing a friend who lived with her son in downtown Manhattan, the actress Jennifer Connelly. She and Bettany weren’t romantically involved, but after working together in the true-life drama A Beautiful Mind, they’d kept in touch. At about hour 48, he asked himself why he was so desperate to reach her. “It hit me, like, Ohhh, no,” Bettany recalls in his fine-sandpaper voice. “I was bitten.” In a flash he knew that if Connelly was alive, he was going to marry her. On January 1, 2003, he did…… To read the full interview, pick up the November 2015 issue—MORE mag…. I enjoyed the light read, happy Monday.
