The 43-year-old actress stars as Hannah, a homeless woman who falls in love with a homeless man in the story that explores how the two got to where they are now. Connelly said it had been 'an amazing experience' to be directed by her husband.

"I had this fantasy that we'd talk about scenes all day," Connelly told a magazine. "Since we moved so quickly, I think he felt his wife was the least of his worries," she added later.

Paul Bettany
Jennifer Conelly and Paul Bettany met on the set of A Beautiful Mind in 2001. The couple has two children.

But the actress knows better than to take their short interaction while filming too seriously. After all, the two Hollywood stars have been married for more than 12 years now.
