Jennifer Connelly has lashed out at critics who think she married her A BEAUTIFUL MIND co-star Paul Bettany too quickly - saying she's never been more certain of anything in her life.

The stunning OSCAR-winner fell for the English actor while making the drama, shortly after splitting with long term love Josh Charles in March 2002. After a whirlwind eight-month romance, the pair wed on New Year's Day 2003 (01JAN) and welcomed their son STELLAN into the world last August (03).

Connelly gushes, "He's wonderful. He's a little bit dirty, but he's also shining.

"I'm indecisive about a lot of things and that drives people crazy. But I was never more certain about marrying him. It all happened really quickly."
