Jennifer is on the cover of this month’s Tatler Magazine. Due to the photo being tagged I would rather not post the cover on the site. You can click here to view it as well as a photo from the photoshoot for the cover.
Added 2 stills from Jennifer’s most recent film & 1 Behind the Scenes shot.
From all of us at Fascinating Connelly, our condolences go out to their family & friends.
The subjects of the film A Beautiful Mind have both died.
Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Nash, 86, and his wife, Alicia Nash, 82, were both involved in a tragic fatal taxi cab crash over the weekend.
The 2001 film was inspired by a book of the same name by Sylvia Nazar and is a biographical drama of John Nash’s life. He was a Nobel Laureate in Economics. It starts when he is a young prodigy and follows his life as he begins to develop paranoid schizophrenia that has him enduring delusional episodes. He then has to watch how his condition affects his wife and friends.
While the film had its detractors who doubted its version of history, it was award-winning, taking the Academy Awards for Best Picture, best Director, Best Actress in a Supporting role (Jennifer Connelly), and Best Adapted Screenplay. Russell Crowe was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for playing John Nash.
Nash and wife Alicia were riding in a taxi that lost control when it was trying to pass another car. It crashed into the guardrail and the couple was ejected from the taxi and pronounced dead at the scene.
The entertainment community that was involved with the film tweeted its condolences.
Crowe stated, “Stunned … my heart goes out to John & Alicia & family. An amazing partnership. Beautiful minds, beautiful hearts.”
Ron Howard, who directed the film, said “RIP Brilliant #NobelPrize winning John Nash & his remarkable wife Alicia. It was an honor telling part of their story #ABeautifulMind.”
Producer Brian Grazer tweeted, “Incredibly sad to lose the wonderful, intelligent miracle of John Nash and his wife. #ABeautifiulMind.” and “#JohnNash gave the world a window into humanity – how the disabled may think and feel inside #ABeautifulMind.”
He also told Variety, “Their lives ended together in the same way that they lived. Theirs was such a brilliant collaboration. Alicia was so powerful in enabling him to have his moments of triumph. His life was really hard. The beauty came from the power of their love to create those triumphs.”
Jennifer Connelly issued a statement through JustJared.com: “This is a great loss. John and Alicia Nash were an inspiration and I have deep admiration for all that they accomplished in their lives. My thoughts are with their family.”
