Jennifer Connelly on Her Favorite Things

Jennifer Connelly is featured on the cover of the December 2008 issue of Marie Claire magazine to promote her new film, The Day the Earth Stood Still, which opens this month. The busy actress has two sons — Kai, 11, and Stellan, 5 — with her husband, actor Paul Bettany.

In the issue she talks about the things she loves in life. Some highlights:

Pink Lady apples:
"Three a day. I eat so many apples, it's stupid."

Speaking Italian:
"It's so much fun. It's such a crisp and bright-sounding language."

"Chilled. No ice. Just a tiny bit of orange juice, or with soda and lime."

Family photographs:
"Right over my bed I've stuck on a black-and-white photo-booth strip of Paul, Kai, and Stelli, and another of Kai and Stelli with my dad." (Connelly's father passed away in September.)

Visiting Africa's Kalahari Desert with her family:
"We all walked away from each other and lay down on the sand. It's crusty, like salt flats. We were just silent for a while."

"I became a mom before I became a wife. When I had kids, I felt I had a home like I'd never experienced before."

Doing crafts:
"I have a Bedazzler! The last time we whipped it out was for Stellan's birthday. I sewed capes for all the kids, and then they decorated them with fabric, paint, jewels, and buttons."

"I love that he's an American hero who is absolutely, 100 percent cowardly."
