Details about the wedding are sketchy, but Connelly’s publicist, Cari Ross, confirms to that “she got married to Paul Bettany over the holidays in a small, private ceremony with just family in Scotland.” No word on where they planned to honeymoon. The nuptials come less than a year after Connelly’s breakup with former “Sports Night” star Josh Charles.
And it’s been a whirlwind romance for the actress and the British-born Bettany, who quietly began dating after her breakup last March.
Her credits also include “Requiem for a Dream” and “Pollock” — and she has a 5-year-old son, Kai, from her relationship to photographer David Dugan.
He made his stage debut in Stephen Daldry's acclaimed West End revival of An Inspector Calls at the Aldwych Theatre, playing the part of Eric Birling.
He also appeared in the Royal Shakespeare Company's productions of Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, and Julius Caesar (for which he received a Charleson Award nomination).
The studio executives were not impressed, but Helgeland was determined to cast him, even writing the part of Chaucer for him.
A Knight's Tale would be Bettany's first big Hollywood production.
