Maverick' might be breaking records, but the limelight belongs to Jennifer Connelly

After years of delays due to shooting complicated action scenes and, of course, the pandemic, Top Gun: Maverick is now in theaters, finding itself in the midst of an extraordinary amount of praise from both fans and critics alike, calling it the blockbuster to beat this year.
The star plays Cruise’s love interest Penny Benjamin, who was alluded to in the first film but never seen onscreen.
Penny has had some history with Maverick, with the pilot having made some passes over the “admiral’s daughter” back in the opening installment.
It would seem that the two have had an on-again-off-again relationship over the decades, and Penny is now a single mom running a bar frequented by the Top Gun crew, although she seems less than thrilled to see her former flame back.
Who could forget the crazy ride that was Labyrinth?
