She’s a fierce talent who’s already won one Oscar for her supporting work, but take a look at Jennifer Connelly’s filmography and what jumps out is that most of it is, well, supporting: John Nash’s wife, the Hulk’s girlfriend, the love interest of male leads in Requiem for a Dream, Dark City, The Rocketeer and more.
“I’ve done so many movies where I’ve been a wife or a girlfriend and less where I’m playing just a friend,” Connelly admitted to MTV News. “That’s one of the things that was exciting about [being in] He’s Just Not That Into You.”
Based on the popular self-help book of the same name, He’s Just Not That Into You follows several stories, each of them told “in sort of chapters,” Connelly said, “chapters on this thematic idea” — basically how to tell when a man is interested in a relationship.
Which means lots of relationships and, more importantly, lots of women. But Connelly has an idea of how to take a good story and make it even better — let her actually meet the other women!
“I don’t meet the other girls,” she revealed, smiling. “Scarlett Johansson is in the closet for one of my scenes! But I’d like to write some scenes where I meet all the other women in the movie, because there are some great girls in it.”
And how! Aside from Connelly and Johansson, the movie also stars Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Ginnifer Goodwin. Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper bat for the men.
