For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
In a February 2013 New York Times Magazine profile, Connie said that she nearly got the role of "Dorothy Boyd" in Jerry Maguire
(1996). She went through multiple rounds of auditions, but just after she did a screen test with Tom Cruise
, she was told that it was down to a choice between her and just one other actress that they had to screen-test: Renée Zellweger
(who ended up playing the role).
