NEW YORK: Jennifer Connelly felt ‘’safe’’ being directed by her husband.  The 43-year-old actress stars in ‘Shelter’, which her actor spouse Paul Bettany has also written, and says knowing he was in charge made her less worried about ‘’making a fool’’ of herself. She said: ‘’One couldn’t feel safer 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?’ ‘’ The actress has starred in three movies with Russell Crowe - ‘A Beautiful Mind’, ‘Winter’s Tale’ and ‘Noah’ and he thinks they work together well because they have an ‘’easy intimacy’’.–EX
