"They're all really difficult [to back and watch]," Jennifer Connelly mused to MovieWeb in 2005 when asked if she can watch her own movies. "I thought, not too long ago, 'OK, what could I watch with a friend? Or with [husband] Paul [Bettany], for example.' I thought, maybe, something like 'Phenomena', because I was 13, and it's a horror film. Paul, early in our relationship, really wanted to see it. But I couldn't. As soon as it came on, I just went over the top of his head trying to cover it, 'No, no, no, shut it off!' I couldn't handle it."
