Paul Bettany Directs Wife Jennifer Connelly for 'Shelter'

Jennifer Connelly gives a coy smile while receiving a note from her director and husband Paul Bettany on the set of their latest film Shelter on Monday (September 23) in New York City.

The 42-year-old actress stars in the film alongside Anthony Mackie, who was also on set that day to film a scene where he gets rough with a man.

Paul also wrote the film about two individuals named Hannah (Connelly) and Tahir (Mackie), who fall in love while homeless on the streets of New York. Shelter is expected to hit theaters next year.

The next day, Jennifer filmed some more for the flick, where she had to do some intense running scenes!

    She’s fully clothed but you can tell she’s super skinny.

    Great pics! It’s so weird to see Jennifer done up like a hobo, though. I really, really hope this particular bout of weight less is for this role, rather than a lifestyle choice. She she looks so thin.

    i really hope paul encourages her to eat their family dinners once they wrap up filming, im worried about her figure. you can tell that they really love each other yet they still have so much respect for one another as actor and director and they can separate business from pleasure in an ethical work environment. jennifer will always be a beauty, she just needs to regain back her healthy glow and fuller figure. i remember back in the 80′s when she had much bigger breasts and had a full face and figure, she looked like an absolute angel. i wish she never had the breast reduction but she probably did it because of back pain but i also heard she may have done it to be taken more seriously as an actress. if i had the breasts that she used to have, id never give those up anyday but you can tell that shes a genuinely good actress and she wanted to be recognized purely for her talent.

    She’s beautiful and talented, but this weight is just not healthy for anyone.

    I think her weight lost is for the role–she’s playing a homeless person.

    What’s wrong with her? Why is she so skinny? Is she anorexic? She used to be so sexy and curvy. Now she looks like she’s sick.

    Love her Says:

    She’s one of the good ones; good actor and always really dignified. But check out her tummy and extreme thinness. She is not well and she needs to see a psychologist or nutritionist about her eating disorder. Even her eyes/gaze looks sick.

    @Sweetpea:

    Sweetpea: No, she’s been anorexic looking for the last eight years. Her weight went up a bit when she was pregnant, but she dropped even more weight after the birth.

    Most homeless people aren’t that skinny- at least the ones in NYC aren’t.

    She’s clearly got an eating disorder.

    she is definitely anorexic and she needs some medical treatment asap…

    The wrinkles on her lower belly are just from the pregnancies. Hold it with the anorexia talk, the woman’s always been slender.

    Pretty Ka Says:

    Putting aside the thinness talk, I think it’s really cool that they get to work together as director and actress.

    Fercat Says:

    She took the effort to look the part, real dedication there. That there is a real actresses.

    Reminds me why Hunger Games is such an oxymoron of a movie.

    @Anne-Marie G.:

    Good! I am sick of these celebrities who claim they are in shape naturally after having a baby and their stomachs are perfect. This also proves that she didn’t have breast reduction and she just lost weight. If she went thru the trouble of getting her breasts reduced she would surely go thru the trouble of a tummy tuck.

    Shazzer Says:

    Shame on him for not noticing her obvious anorexia. Oh my.

    Lime Says:

    @Anne-Marie G.: It’s her own business but she’s definitely not naturally thin, or least hasn’t always been thin. Look her up in Dark City. She was of a normal, healthful weight and looked stunning and healthy.

    @Shazzer he has been questioned about it before. He defected it by saying that her father had just died. It’s awkward for him, probably.

    They’re such a great couple though, and her weight’s definitely her own business but oh well, she’s a public figure and she looks extremely sick. Often your body just gets used to the starvation mode and you don’t miss eating.

    @Lime:

    A body can change after having children. Not all women stay fat after having kids. I do wish she was at a healthier weight. For this movie, i can understand her needing to be skinny but when she is a healthy weight…nobody in Hollywood is more beautiful!

    She got so skinny since the birth of her daughter.

    She’s been hella skinny since giving birth to her daughter. Have you seen her legs and ankles? And compared them to her feet? Her feet are far too big for that tiny of a frame. I’m sure when she was healthier and at a higher weight, it looks normal. But now it looks horrifying.
