A Beautiful Mind actress Jennifer Connelly regrets not allowing herself more time to relax at university, because her serious nature meant she wasn't fun to be around.

Connelly studied English literature at America's prestigious Yale University in Connecticut and was so driven she spent most of her time in the library.

She recalls, "I just scrutinised everything, and you end up feeling completely raw and exposed and turned inside-out.

"I had no sense of humour and took myself so seriously."
