Flashback Friday: The 1st half of Jennifer Connelly's career is the best

04.17.2015by: Droz

I know, that headline is a bold statement. After all, in the second half of her 30-year career she's won an Oscar and been in all kinds of high profile movies. Still, in terms of sheer entertainment value and pleasure of the eye, I'm all about Jennifer Connelly around the years 1986-2000. There's a little something for everyone in that period of her career. Take, for instance, her big debut role in the 1986 movie LABYRINTH. What child of the 80s doesn't have fond memories of that perfect expression of Jim Henson eccentric brilliance? And of course there was Jennifer.

It's a deep, life-changing moment when you first begin to realize the kind of person you get hot for. That's maybe even more significant than first loves. Jennifer in this movie was the first girl I can recall ever being completely smitten with. So special was she to me that LABYRINTH was the first movie I ever owned, way back in those bygone VHS days. The pretense for that purchase was that I liked the goblins and the Bowie songs (not so much Bowie's front and center peen in those tights). The real reason I had to have that was Jennifer. I just wanted to look at her over and over. That would become a running theme in years to follow.

Things only got better in the 90s. Jennifer gave us a number of unforgettable moments, in movies both great and maybe not so great. They all had Jen in them though, which for me always came with a certain minimal amount of guaranteed enjoyment. For the sake of brevity I wont list all those movies, but some of the highlights were movies like CAREER OPPORTUNITIES, THE ROCKETEER, DARK CITY, MULHOLLAND FALLS and maybe REQUIEM FOR A DREAM if you want to stay true to that whole Gregorian calendar thing. It was a time when we all enjoyed regular doses of Jennifer, both in and out of clothes. And some people have the nerve to say the 90s weren't all that great.

The years that followed those halcyon days in the 90s were most definitely Jennifer's time to shine. Career wise, she has had a number of triumphs in her 30s and now 40s and no doubt will again in years to come. That's all well and good, but I'm still all about that roughly 15-year period I've discussed above. Perhaps that's just because I was young, or because she was young. Whatever the case, for the rest of my life, that late 80s to late 90s time frame will forever be my go to time for great Jennifer moments.

Where did she go

The girl using her name now, isn't the same person.
She looks absolutely gorgeous in the Music Video "I Drove All Night" by Roy Orbson. Google it.

Gorgeous woman, great actress

I definitely developed a crush on her in LABYRINTH, and there's a lot of acting talent behind those beautiful eyes. She really is the complete package; she should have been Jennifer Lawrence huge.

And yes, she looked much better when she had a bit more weight on her.

My biggest celebrity crush of all-time. No other actress, dead or alive, can take my breath away like her. It's a shame she lost so much weight.

Goddess

One of the most beautiful women in the history of film. She still looks fantastic, but those early years... my god, she was breath-taking. Watching "Career Opportunities" as a teenager was mind-blowing.

There's no question she's always been beautiful but I prefer her 30 and over look, when her face started to have more character.

First remember her as the enigmatic Deborah Gelly in Once upon a time in America (thinks she was only 14-ish)....she matured into a very elegant, beautiful woman

She was as hot in CAREER OPPORTUNITIES as any woman has ever been on the silver screen. Still a beautiful woman who has aged well, but she's nowhere near as curvy and mouth-watering today as she was in the early 90s.
