Jennifer Connelly says her husband, actor Paul Bettany, takes cheese with him everywhere he goes
Paul Bettany is addicted to cheese.
The 'Creation' star's wife Jennifer Connelly - who he raises two children with - says that although the actor has finally given up smoking, she has failed to dissuade him from taking his favourite dairy food everywhere.
She told Britain's InStyle magazine: "When we met he smoked a lot and ate a lot of cheese.
"He still eats a lot of cheese. It's usually somewhere in his backpack. But he quit smoking. I don't think it was my influence. Kids will do that to you. You want to stick around and see what happens with them."
Although Jennifer - who has two sons, 12-year-old Kai from a previous relationship and Stellan, six, with Paul - insists she has little influence on her husband, she believes he has made her less uptight.
She explained: "I've gotten less introverted and earnest since Paul and I have been together.
"Paul tore me apart from my earnestness."
