Mom-of-three Jennifer Connelly gets glam on the February cover of Allure. The actress, 43, opens up about her upcoming film, Shelter, written and directed by husband Paul Bettany. She goes on to talk about her three kids: sons Kai, 16, and Stellan, 10, and 2-year-old daughter Agnes.
On having three children: “I knew that we were going to be done after number three. That’s enough for us.”
On her husband being the director: “One couldn’t feel more safe as an actor than knowing that the director’s your husband. It’s like, Oh, if I really make a fool of myself, I can just say, ‘Honey, can you please not put that in the movie?’ ”
On her definition of beauty: ”The thing that really matters to me is well-being and happiness. Maybe it comes from knowing people who have tortured themselves trying to meet these strangely narrow and rigorous definitions of what our culture thinks is beautiful.”
