Acclaimed actor Paul Bettany is our April celebrity – he told us all about his latest role in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, his talented wife Jennifer Connolly, and why he thinks “acting is like sex”.
On mocking his wife:
“Once she gave an award at an award show, and afterwards she sat back down next to me and I said, “Well! That was a very sloooow sexxxy voice you were using. Why were you using that slooow, sexxxy voice?”
On growing up:
“I was the annoying kid who, when all the other boys went off to play football, I stayed on the side-lines stealing their girlfriends because talking to girls seemed much more interesting to me than kicking a ball around a field and still does.”
On his courtship of Jennifer:
“We never dated – not once – in fact, it was a very bizarre kind of Victorian courtship which ended with her taking me home like a mail-order bride!”
On his kids:
“The brilliant part about children is that you don’t have to pretend that you like clubs and parties any more.”
