Paul Bettany Stays English Even in a Mets Jersey

Posted by Fara Kearnes on May 4, 2006 9:04 PM |

Jennifer Connelly and Paul BettanyBritish actor Paul Bettany is still adjusting to his life in the US with actress wife Jennifer Connelly but insists he won't give up his English sense of style.

The star left his homeland to join his Oscar-winning wife in Brooklyn, New York City, and is still getting used to the transition. He explains, "When I first arrived here to live, Jennifer had brought me over like a mail-order bride."

" I turned up in this tiny one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan where she had been living for 10 years. We had a baby on the way, and I thought, 'No way am I living like this.' So we found this neighborhood in Brooklyn with lots of kids and great bars and restaurants."

Bettany, who will soon appear in "The Da Vinci Code" playing the Opus Dei monk Silas, insists he won't compromise when it comes to his sense of style because it would just look wrong.

He adds, "I'm English, so I can't wear a baseball cap. I'd look like white trash, like I should have a beer and a dog called Skeeter. I do wear a Mets baseball jersey, though - but simply to annoy my father-in-law."

The actor admits he nearly missed out on the killer "Da Vinci Code role" because he refused to read the best-selling book, thinking that it had to be lightweight due to its mainstream popularity.

Once he read the book, though, he was drawn into it. "When the script turned up I read it in two days. I had avoided it out of some ghastly English snobbery that really reveals my true nature."


Paul is one of those people who doesn't need a baseball cap to achieve the "white trash" look...
