Jennifer Connelly to 'Allure': What Matters to Me is Happiness

Jennifer Connelly gets close up on the cover of Allure magazine’s February 2014 issue, on newsstands on January 28.

Here’s what the 43-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On working with husband Paul Bettany on Shelter, a movie he directed and in which she stars: “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?’ That was a great perk.”

On her many collaborations with Russell Crowe: “We have an easy intimacy. We act together like the best kisses: We both bring equal passion.”

On the importance 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.”
