Bettany And Connelly's Fell In Love Over The Phone

Hollywood couple PAUL BETTANY and JENNIFER CONNELLY fell in love over the phone, months after meeting on the set of a BEAUTIFUL MIND.

The WIMBLEDON actor took Connelly's phone number as a friend when filming on the 2001 movie finished and the now married couple embarked upon a relationship even though they both already had partners.

The 33-year-old actor says, "We were both involved with other people at the time - besides, we'd both been around the block enough to know not to have an on-set romance because they never work out in the end.

"But we kept in touch over the telephone and that's how we fell in love. I suddenly realised that I was speaking to her more than I was speaking to the woman who was my partner and it sort of took off from there.

"It was very bizarre kind of Victorian courtship - we never even dated. We talked on the telephone, the we met up, then we got married and she took me home - sort of like a mail order groom, really!"
