The Hollywood star's stunning photo shows off her lovely childhood in the Hudson Valley.

I'm not going to tell you who it is right away, but I'm sure with these clues you'll be able to easily figure out who it is. She was in 'Top Gun: Maverick, 'Labyrinth', 'Requiem for a Dream' and many more popular films.

She's stunning, she has dark hair, beautiful eyes and a very simple, but elegant style.

Any idea of who I'm talking about?

What big Hollywood actress spent her childhood in the Hudson Valley?

Actress Jennifer Connelly who stars in the new movie was born in Cairo, New York in the Catskill Mountains. According to sources, her father was a clothing manufacturer and her mother was an antique dealer, which seems very fitting for the area. Connelly's family did eventually move to the city but it was reported that they moved to Woodstock due to her father's asthma and to try to escape the city smog.

She recently posted a throwback picture on her Facebook/Instagram and it was a beautiful picture of her parents (she was also in it, but she was very little)

We can see where she gets her looks from, her mother is STUNNING.

It's really cool to think about how a huge star like her got their start right in our neck of the woods. Maybe she can share more throwback pictures for us?
