Many people don’t know that before going on to being an Oscar-winning actress, Jennifer Connolly has been a teen model. On Jimmy Kimmel’s show last Tuesday night the 45-year-old actress was surprised when th host showed her some teen romance novels for which she had posed in the past.
Connolly told the audience what it was like: she said that the team tried to tell that the production team told them a little bit about every story in order to get them into the spirit of the novels. She said that the truly scary thing is that the pictures are real.
She further confessed that she was about 13 years old when she did those photos that appeared on the covers of books like Rock’n’Roll Romance, The Two of Us or Once in California. This happened because at the age of 10 she signed with the Ford Modeling Agency. Then, she moved on to star in TV commercial. Only after that she made the final jump to acting and focusing on this part of her career.
The star from A Beautiful Mind attracted all the attention as she stepped out on the stage wearing a little classy black dress that was very skintight. The dress went just above her knees and we could also get a sneak peek of her cleavage. She matched the outfit with a pair of shoes with ankle straps with silver studs and a black clutch.
Connelly appeared in fact on Kimmel’s show in order to promote the new film she worked on, American Pastoral. There she stars together with Ewan McGregor and Dakota Fanning. McGregor is also the director of the movie which is in fact an adaptation after Philip Roth’s novel that has the same title. The production is set to be released in theaters starting October 28.
