Jennifer Lynn Connelly (born December 12, 1970) is an American film actress and former child model who started modeling after a friend of her parents suggested an audition. She subsequently appeared in magazine, newspaper and television advertising before making her motion picture debut in the 1984 crime film Once Upon a Time in America. As a teenager, Connelly continued her career as a model, at the same time starring in films such as Labyrinth and Career Opportunities. She gained critical acclaim for her work in the 1998 science fiction film Dark City and for her portrayal of Marion Silver in Darren Aronofsky's drama, Requiem for a Dream (2000).

In 2002, Connelly won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress along with a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and the BAFTA for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role as Alicia Nash in Ron Howard's biopic A Beautiful Mind. Other film credits include the Marvel superhero film Hulk, the thriller Dark Water, the drama Blood Diamond, the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still and the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You.

Since 2005, Connelly has served as the Amnesty International Ambassador for Human Rights Education in the United States. Magazines including Time, Vanity Fair and Esquire, as well as the Los Angeles Times newspaper have included her on their lists of the world's most beautiful women.
