Speaking with ET at the 6th Biennial UNICEF Ball in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday, the 45-year-old Oscar winner opened up about Bowie's recent death, and shared her "extraordinary memories" of the groundbreaking entertainer.
"I think it's very sad, his passing, for so many reasons," Connelly shared. "To me, not only was he a genius, he was a genius who had the time to be kind. [That] was my experience of him. So my thoughts are with his family."
