Red carpet events are not only good for chic fashion, but for date nights too!

Jennifer Connelly
and husband Paul Bettany stepped out Monday night at ELLE Magazine‘s 14th Annual Women in Hollywood party, and the couple joked to OK! their alone time has been reduced to high-wattage get-togethers.

“We only see each other at these events!” Jennifer laughs.

Getting serious, the Oscar winner says their selective film schedules
allow for plenty of time together. “We don’t do that many films each
year and I like to stagger as much as possible so that we can visit
each other when we’re working and we can visit each other’s respective
sets,” she tells OK!. “It takes a bit of planning and scheduling
with the kids [Stellan, 4, and Kai, 10, her son from a previous
relationship], but it’s worked out.”

Jennifer, 36, was one of the many female stars feted at the event
honoring women’s achievement in film, and says she would love to one
day share the screen with the one and only Meryl Streep.

“She’s just luminous and I think that she’s in a league of her own. She’s really extraordinary!”
