Actress Jennifer Connelly says singer David Bowie "became a real hero" of hers after they did "Labyrinth" together. During her appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the former child model said: "I was not cool enough to get what working with him really meant. It was probably a good thing that I wasn't. After working with him, he became a real hero of mine because he was so kind to me. I was a 14-year-old kid and knew nothing."

The "Hulk" star said Bowie, who died in January 2016 at the age of 69 following a battle with cancer, was "funny" and "gracious" on set and ever since they worked together she has loved his music, reports femalefirst.co.uk. She added: "He was funny and gracious and made me feel so comfortable. He was amazing. Subsequently, I became a huge fan of his music."
