I wasn’t really concerned whether I took my meal or had a social life or was not sleeping enough. Later adding to this statement she also said that she was really nerdy and pretty much stayed in the law school library which was open 24 hours and most of the time she was not present in the class.
Jennifer Connelly is fluent in several different languages like French and Italian. Jennifer Connely was able to expand her language skills when her agent asked her to record two songs in Japanese. She sang Japanese songs when Jennifer was just 16.
Hence the interesting fact which I like to mention is that the Japanese songs which were being recorded for advertising purposes were written out phonetically since Jennifer could not speak the language. Both songs were super hits in Japan despite being recorded just for advertising purposes.
