”He doesn’t work often, so it might be tough to accomplish,” says the actress, 36, of the Oscar-winning Brit. ”His penetrating eyes, unique voice — he’s just amazing.” Connelly, an Oscar winner herself, who stars in Blood Diamond (on DVD March 20), adds: ”He’s good in everything. He blew me away in My Left Foot. I also love his later work in things like The Ballad of Jack & Rose.”
