Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany Jennifer Connelly found it ''strange'' going to work with her husband every morning for Shelter. The actress was directed by Paul Bettany in the new movie - in which she stars as a homeless person - and even though they've been married for more than a decade, it was weird for her. She told DuJour magazine: ''It was kind of strange, going to work in the morning with the director. But it really seemed to come quite naturally to him - phew - and it was an amazing experience to have had together.'' The 43-year-old star added she didn't get preferential treatment and had to wait to speak to Paul like everybody else.

She added: ''I had this fantasy that we'd talk about scenes all day. In reality, if the man sat down, there was a line of people wanting to talk to him. Since we moved so quickly, I think he felt his wife was the least of his worries.'' Jennifer and Paul have children Stellan, 10, and Agnes, two, together and her son Kai, 16, from a previous relationship. While they have been on most of her film sets she says they don't realize she is famous. She added: ''I think they're interested in the same way all kids are interested in what their parents do, but [fame] doesn't come up. It affords them some fun experiences. They've seen hardly any of my movies, but they've been on almost every set.''
