Actress Jennifer Connelly has been getting the best reviews of her career for her work as a long-suffering wife in Ron Howard's "A Beautiful Mind."
But Howard isn't the only important director in her life.
Connelly says her 4-year-old son Kai has a "theatrical, exuberant personality," but she sees him more as a director than the actor type.
"We've already done plays together. Very short plays. He dictates them to me. Sometimes he casts me, sometimes he doesn't," Connelly said in an interview with Newsday published Sunday. "And when I'm in the play, he'll sometimes say to me, 'No Mom, you didn't say that right.'"
Connelly received a Golden Globe on Sunday as best supporting actress for her work in "A Beautiful Mind," which stars Russell Crowe as schizophrenic genius John Nash.
