Celebrity Birthday Celebrations: Jennifer Connelly


Today, Jennifer Connelly gallops into her 40s as she celebrates her 40th birthday.

Having started her career as a child model, Jennifer Connelly started in films during her teen years. It took her nearly 20 movies and as many years to get her first big break in Requiem For A Dream. After the haunting role, she played Russel Crowe's wife in A Beautiful Mind, a role for which she won an Oscar and a Golden Globe award.

There was no looking back after that and she has only grown as an actress. This can be clearly seen in her latest venture The Dilemma with Vince Vaughn, her first comic role.

The versatile actress is married to actor Paul Bettany and has two sons - Kai, 13, with former partner David Dugan and Stellan, 7, with Paul.

Hope this year as much fun for you as your new movie promises to be Jennifer!
