VIDEO: Star Spotlight on Jennifer Connelly

Family comes first for Jennifer Connelly. The actress, who’s now treading into animated territory with the the animated sci-fi movie 9 (which opened Sept. 9), is a devoted mom to her two sons, Kai, 12 (from a previous relationship) and Stellan, 6 (with husband Paul Bettany).

And the Oscar winner (who scored gold for her tear-jerking role in 2001's A Beautiful Mind) likes to check out the shows and movies that interest her sons. "With my older son, we like to watch history documentaries," the actress says. But for Stellan it's all about cartoons. "Scooby-Doo. Old-school Scooby-Doo. Pre-Scrappy," she says.

Watch our exclusive video to find out why making things work for her "tribe" is first priority in her life and how Jennifer juggles her crazy shooting schedule.
