Jennifer Connelly & Family: Ready To Rock

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany arrive at the Staple Center

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany took Stellan, 9, and Kai, 15, to the Rolling Stones concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday (May 3).

The couple’s youngest daughter Agnes, nearly 1, wasn’t with them. The boys both attached sunglasses to their shirts. Bettany wore jeans rolled up and a white tee. Connelly had on funky printed pants and a black leather jacket.

Last year the actress told Anderson Cooper, “I’ve got a massive family now. It’s really unbelievable. They are all such extraordinary kids and they’re great together.

“They never fight, they look after each other. They are loving. Maybe it has something to do with the huge age gap between them, there is no competition and they all have so much attention and focus.”

The couple have been married since 2003. Kai’s father is photographer David Dugan.

Pierce Brosnan & His California Kid

Pierce Brosnan and his elder son Dylan, 13, took an afternoon walk around town with the family pooch in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (May 29). Pierce's wife, Keely Shaye Smith, and their 9-year-old son Paris were not seen with the handsome father-son duo.

Pierce is currently working on his latest flick, Salvation Boulevard, co-starring Jennifer Connelly and Marissa Tomei.

 

Paul Bettany On The Benefits Of Working With His Wife

Married for 7 years in real life, Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly play husband and wife on the big screen in their latest film, Creation. Paul recently talked to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail about the upside of working alongside his wife:

“When people are trying to present a marriage on screen, they tend to look at each other too much, when really, a lot of ignoring goes on. When I’m sitting watching television with my wife and I put my hand out, I don’t need to look at her, I know where her hand is, because it’s been there for the last seven years. So I think the film got that much for free."

The 38-year-old actor admits that he and Jennifer did tend to take their work home with them.

"Also, when we’d put the kids to bed and were lying in bed exhausted, Jennifer and I were able to talk about the next day’s work," Paul says, adding, "Now, I’m not saying that it’s in any way abnormal for leading actors and actresses to be in bed together – but I doubt they’re talking about the next day’s work.”

The couple are raising boys Kai, 12, - Jennifer's son from a previous relationship - and Stellan, 6.

 

Paul Bettany & His Boys Are Made In The Shade

Creation star Paul Bettany took the dog along as he walked sons - Kai, 12, and Stellan, 6 - to school in New York City on Tuesday (January 26). The boys looked too cool for school in their funky jackets and shades. Mom, Jennifer Connelly, was not spotted with the group.

Although Kai's biological father is Jennifer's ex, David Dugan, Paul recently said that he considers both of the boys to be his sons.

Actually, reading to both my kids has always been important. My wife, Jennifer, and I read to them every night. It's the most delicious time of the day when your child is all sleepy and cuddly and they get to snuggle up and you read them a bedtime story. It's the bit of parenting that makes up for when they're screaming and shouting at you."

 

Paul Bettany: We Read To The Boys Every Night

Paul Bettany is set to play the controversial scientist Charles Darwin in the period film Creation alongside his lovely wife, Jennifer Connelly. The 38-year-old English actor opened up to Parade about his new film, the joys of raising sons Stellan, 6, and stepson Kai, 12, and his worries about the environment.

On reading to the boys every night: "Actually, reading to both my kids has always been important. My wife, Jennifer, and I read to them every night. It's the most delicious time of the day when your child is all sleepy and cuddly and they get to snuggle up and you read them a bedtime story. It's the bit of parenting that makes up for when they're screaming and shouting at you."

On how his father read him bedtime stories: "My dad made a lot of stories up at bedtime. He would create these wild stories about this elephant. As I got older, I remember him reading Lord of the Rings. My strongest memory was the moment when you think Frodo is dead and I forced him to read about 250 more pages until you realized he was okay."

 

Jennifer Connelly Smiles With Her Sons

Jennifer Connelly took the dog along as she smiled and walked her two sons - 12-year-old Kai and 6-year-old Stellan - to school in New York City this morning (January 19).

Although Jennifer met her husband Paul Bettany on the set of the Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind, the two did not share any scenes. It wasn't until their new film Creation in which the star couple acted together.

We thought about it and tried to be careful about what we’d do together,” she said. Creation was the right fit, Connelly said, because “it’s not a young love or a romantic comedy nor about their sexuality. There’s another reason I thought it appropriate for us,” she added. “The circumstances of their lives bear no resemblance to our lives. There is nothing that has any bearing on ours.”

Creation hits theaters this Friday, January 22.

 

Paul Bettany & Jennifer Connelly’s Big Apple Boys

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany were photographed taking the dog along as they dropped off her 12-year-old son Kai and their 6-year-old son Stellan at school in New York City this morning (January 15).

We just spotted the family of four doing the school run - again with their cute pooch - earlier this week.

Jennifer and Paul, who first met while costarring in A Beautiful Mind, are reconnecting on the big screen in the Charles Darwin biopic, Creation. While promoting their controversial new film, the 38-year-old English actor proclaimed himself an atheist.

I wish I did have faith. I think it would make life so much easier. I just have not discovered God in my life. I mean, I don’t see him. It's not that I'm closed off to the argument, but I do feel the burden of proof."

 

Jennifer Connelly & Paul Bettany’s School Run

Jennifer Connelly and husband Paul Bettany were photographed walking with her 12-year-old son Kai Dougan and their 6-year-old son Stellan to school in New York City on Monday (January 11). The family pup came along for the stroll.

Jennifer and Paul will light up the big screen in the controversial new film Creation, set to hit theaters Friday, January 22.

My husband Paul and I play Charles and Emma Darwin in Creation," Jennifer recently said. "He, of course, is developing his theory of evolution and I'm a devout Christian whose faith contradicts his work. Even though they have this huge problem at the center of their marriage, they are full of love for one another. It's well documented in the letters that they wrote to each other where they often faced their problems through written correspondence rather than talking to each other in the same room. They would try to sort out their conflicts and she would implore him to read certain passages from the Bible, and he would explain to her his gradual loss of faith."

 

Jennifer Connelly’s Bora Bora bikini

Jennifer Connelly has won an Academy Award and gave birth to two kids while still retaining a smoking hot bod.  Let that sink in and try not kill yourself in the process.  The actress suited up in a black bikini while vacationing with her husband, fellow actor Paul Bettany, and their kids in Bora Bora this week.

The more we see pictures of stars getting pap’d on vacation on remote islands, the more we think the paparazzi really do live the sweet life.  C’mon, they get to go on vacation as often as famous people – and we all know that is pretty freaking often.  Plus, they get a front row seat to hot famous people in relatively little clothing.  Can we please sign up for this gig?
