Josie McClellan is 37

Some movies we have a soft spot for, even though we shouldn’t. Sometimes girls grow up and change, but the crushes we have on them never fully go away. We’re only human. That’s me saying I have to wish a very happy birthday to Jennifer Connelly.

Man, I feel really bad now for knocking this film in my tribute to her...oh well, whatever she is in she is great...I am glad to see I'm not the only one of us to remember her birthday.
Great little tribute...she really is one in a million.

No worries! Somehow I suspect that it's not one of her films that she's most fond of. But I really do like her in it and it's just a movie that I've long had a secret fondness for. It's been a thrill to watch her evolution as an actress over the years.

I have no doubt that if Andy Dufresne never escaped from Shawshank, Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, and Raquel Welch would have been replaced on the wall of his prison cell by Jennifer Connelly.

Even though she may be the stuck up valedictorian babe who was too good to ever give the rest of the school the time of day, I will always lose the capacity for speech whenever I see Connelly appear on screen.

While my knowledge of her college years is limited, I believe you're absolutely right about Andy Dufresne's cell wall. A shot of her in THE ROCKETEER, no doubt. Sigh.
