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!"
