Jennifer Connelly: Working with Husband Paul Bettany Was an 'Amazing Experience'

Jennifer Connelly is all about fashion in this brand new feature from Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine.

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

On aging in Hollywood: “I noticed a huge shift from when I ducked out to have a baby when I was 39 – all of a sudden I came back to work and I had crossed over into another dimension. I had just had a baby and I was reading scripts for mothers of 20 year olds. I was like, ‘Wow!’ It’s like some magic number you hit. It was surprising.”

On working with her husband Paul Bettany in Shelter: “Working with [Paul] as a director was weirdly normal. I didn’t approach it with trepidation; it was an amazing experience. We have been together for 11 years, which is almost like 50 in Hollywood years. I have a lot of respect for [my husband]. I miss him when he goes away to work.”

On her daughter Agnes: “We waited so long to have a third because our boys are so great, healthy and clever and good, but then Agnes was born and everything is so much fuller and I am so madly in love, as are the boys. It has only made the dynamic richer.”
