Jennifer Connelly, 41, has long been known for her stringent workout routines, but recent spottings of the actress running along the streets of New York leave some wondering if she has gotten too skinny. The He’s Just Not That Into You star is visibly thinner, not just in the body but in the face as well, according to the Daily Mail. Nutritionist Majid Ali believes the Blood Diamonds star does not look like she could weigh more than 100 pounds, Radar Online notes.
The spandex black leggings Connelly wore while jogging in the Big Apple highlighted how rail thin the legs of the Beautiful Minds star have become. She began her career as a model but is reportedly now tinier than during her posing days. The desire to be a model hit at 10 when a friend of her garment industry father suggested the preteen girl should audition, IMDB notes. After multiple newspaper and small magazine gigs, the future film star landed on the cover of Seventeen magazine.
The multi-talented performer was also featured in the I Drove All Night music video and released a record single titled “Monologue of Love” which she sings in Japanese. The actress is also fluent in French and Italian.
The year 1984 was big for the Catskills native; after graduating high school, Yale came calling and then so did the movie business. Her first acting role was in the crime film, Once Upon a Time in America. Two years after hitting the books at Yale, the already accomplished young woman transferred to Stanford.
Jennifer Connelly is married to Paul Bettany and is mom to Stellan, 8; Agnes, 15 months; and Kai 14, a son from her previous relationship with photographer David Dugan.
Jennifer recently finished filming Writers directed by Josh Boone. The busy mom is currently working on the Darren Aronofsky movie, Noah. Emma Watson is the lead in the biblical epic.
