Jennifer Connelly on Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise, and Why She Finally Joined Instagram
May 16 2022
With director Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick opening in theaters on May 27, I recently got to speak to Jennifer Connelly about making the phenomenal film. In the sequel, Connelly plays Penny Benjamin, who is mentioned in the original Top Gun as a former love interest of Maverick (Tom Cruise) but never seen. During the interview, Connelly talks about why she loved working with Cruise, what she’ll always remember from filming the sequel, and how they got ready to make the film. In addition, she reveals what made her finally join Instagram and reveals the first thing you should watch if you’ve never seen her work.
