Jennifer Connelly Gave Husband Paul Bettany Everything on 'Shelter'

Jennifer Connelly Gave Husband Paul Bettany Everything on 'Shelter'

Jennifer Connelly keeps it chic while attending day 2 of the Variety Studio presented by Moroccanoil at Holt Renfrew during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday (September 6) in Toronto, Canada.

The 43-year-old actress was joined by her husband Paul Bettany while promoting their upcoming movie Shelter, which centers on “Hannah and Tahir who fall in love while homeless on the streets of New York.”

Paul recently chatted about directing Jennifer in the movie.

“I can see potential difficulties. But next to the risk of having chosen to spend our lives together, the risk of spending 21 days together and making a film together is actually miniscule in comparison. Jennifer gave me everything she had as an actress, and I did everything to protect her performance,” Paul shared to THR.

FYI: Jennifer is dressed head to toe in Louis Vuitton.

    Don’t like those pants. She is a beautiful woman but here she looks like a skeleton on a stick.

  • LoMo

    she’s become awfully thin. I hope it just for this homeless role..

  • truthbetold

    Would it kill her to smile? She seems so cold and frigid! Yikes!

  • Tad

    @truthbetold:
    I have never understood this “they really need to smile more” insult of women. To complain they look frigid means that they appear “unable or unwilling to be sexually aroused and responsive” so we are judging and complaining about women just because they don’t look like they’d have sex with you?
    Most people’s resting face isn’t a smile. It would be exhausting to plaster on a smile for the entire duration of a press event. We shouldn’t be encouraging anyone to smile just to avoid looking frigid. Women are people they don’t just hang around to look like sexually available eye candy.

    In other news Nicholas Ghesguiere’s looks for Jennifer have been much better during his tenure for Louis Vuitton than they ever were while he was at Balenciaga.

    This movie sounds like it could be interesting.

    @Tad:

    Um, i am a straight woman and if someone is taking my picture, i smile. Everyone else at TIFF is having fun and smiling yet she looks bored. Your response was probably one of the dumbest things i ever read.

  • groundcontrol

    Paul is getting excellent reviews for his directing and Jennifer is getting excellent reviews for her acting as is her co-star, Anthony Mackie.

    Love these surprise gems uncovered at festivals.

    Connelly could be a real awards contender this coming awards season. She’s always been popular in the industry and people will be happy to see her with a worthy role in a worthy film.

  • BT

    Cool to see them working together again.
    Jennifer somehow always manages to rock straight off the runway clothes even better than the original models.

  • Tad

    @truthbetold:
    Okay so part of my comment was off (hard to tell what someones gender is in an anonymous internet comment, but the word frigid has a sexual connotation when used to describe someone who obviously isn’t literally suffering from low temperatures), Jennifer is smiling in more photos in this post than Paul is, yet no one comes in to comment that he needs to smile more or is frigid.
    I hear guys all the time telling women who spurn their advances they should smile more because they look frigid or cold. So to me it has a very sexist slant to it. Interesting to know that straight women do it too.

  • Kim

    hi Tad, I think your comments and observations make sense. Due to them, I learn some connotations of sexism these days.

  • truthbetold

    @Tad:

    Paul doesn’t have a reputation of being cold and aloof. Connelly does which is why i made the comment! Besides, why would you take Connelly being frigid as a sexual connotation when she has three children and married? Your statement made no sense and it was a desperate attempt at trying to call someone sexist just because you are a fan of the person i am talking about.

  • Pretty Ka

    @Tad: Great comment. Thanks for your input :)

  • Mia

    @truthbetold, You ARE being sexist. Just own up to it.

  • truthbetold

    @Mia:

    I am a woman, so how am i being sexist? All i said is she looks cold and frigid and you took that sexually. YOU thought about sex! That didn’t even cross my mind because i am a straight woman. But, since the word “frigid” means sex to you freaks, all just call Connelly what she appears to be: A COLD, ALOOF, PRETENTIOUS, ELITIST, BITCH!

    It’s funny how her contracts never get renewed by beauty companies like Revlon and Shiseido. Probably because they know what she is!

  • No

    @Mia: No she isn’t,you’re reaching!! God everything little thing is sexist these days,it’s no wonder that some people don’t want to be called feminists or discuss/support feminism because people like you take it too far. Reminds me of the boy and wolf story
