Jennifer Connelly says her character Naameh - Noah's wife - shows ''extraordinary strength'' in the film despite the bible not revealing much about her.
Jennifer Connelly is proud of her 'Noah' character's ''extraordinary strength''.
The actress claims her character Naameh is seen from a different perspective in the film - which sees Noah build an ark for his wife and the world's animals after God destroys the earth with a flood - as the bible does not reveal much about her.
Jennifer, 43, told Vogue.com: ''If you read Genesis, she doesn't even have a name.
''But, in the context of the story, I do think that she has extraordinary strength. She's physically capable, she's industrious, I think that she changes the outcome of the story. I think she's enterprising, she has great reserves of strength - and that the source of that strength, really, is love.
''I think that's what really makes her powerful: that she embodies a very profound love.''
Jennifer also insists Naameh's dependence on her husband Noah, who is played by Russell Crowe, should not be seen as a weakness.
She added: ''I don't think that there's anything wrong with being supportive, and devoted, and having faith. I mean, it's a very particular circumstance - the creator has been communicating with Noah - so one understands her faith and following him.''
