Paul directs Jennifer and Anthony

There are so many things I love about this photo set.
It’s Paul Bettany directing a film called Shelter from a screenplay that he wrote, starring his wife Jennifer Connelly. We don’t see enough of Connelly. She’s lovely. Bettany was supposed to star in Masters Of Sex, which is premiering this coming weekend and Duana and I can’t wait. He dropped out and Michael Sheen stepped in, a fine replacement. It wasn’t revealed why he was no longer attached to the show but I always wondered if it didn’t have something to do with the fact that he wanted to be with his family, his fragile wife. Connelly had a hard time coping with her father’s death. Have you ever read a Paul Bettany interview? Both of them seem to be working through trauma, and have found each other to work through it together. Click here for a good one if you have the time.
What makes me happy about these shots is that they seem happy. He’s working with her, he clearly adores her, and she looks at peace.
Always good for all caps and an exclamation point, non?
Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Mackie all at once?
How could I not post these shots?
