Actress Jennifer Connelly covers the February 2014 issue of Allure
magazine. Jennifer's wearing a silk blouse by Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino silk cotton pants on the cover photographed by Carter Smith. In the interview, Jennifer talks about her new film, Shelter
, which is written and directed by her husband Paul Bettany. She also talks about what matters to her and reveals her favorite workout.
On Working With Her Husband in Shelter
: "One couldn't feel more safe as an actor than knowing that the director's your husband. It's like, Oh, if I really make a fool of myself, I can just say, 'Honey, can you please not put that in the movie?'"
On What Matters to Her
: "The thing that really matters to me is well-being and happiness. Maybe it comes from knowing people who have tortured themselves trying to meet these strangely narrow and rigorous definitions of what our culture thinks is beautiful."
On Her Favorite Workout
: "Running is my favorite workout. I tried doing jumping lunges for a while. That was dreadful."
