Jennifer Connely is on the cover of Glamour!

Jennifer Connelly is on the cover of Glamour Magazine for March 2009!

Excerpts from the interview:

GLAMOUR: Many think of you as the Queen of Angst. You’ve often said you find those roles interesting. But you aren’t, in real life, a dark, disturbed person, are you?

JENNIFER CONNELLY: No. I don’t feel angst-ridden!

GLAMOUR: Lately you’ve wanted to be considered for less serious roles. Did He’s Just Not That Into You fit the bill?

JC: Yeah. I had just done a film called Reservation Road, which was about a mother who loses a child, and it was harrowing. It was fun to do something very different.

GLAMOUR: A chick flick.

JC: It was not like anything I’d done.

GLAMOUR: Scarlett Johansson plays a yoga teacher intent on stealing your husband in He’s Just Not That Into You. And she does it without feeling any guilt.

JC: Oh, I’ve met all kinds of people who practice yoga who are uptight or messed up. And some people see yoga classes as pickup places.

GLAMOUR: In the movie, your character suspects that her husband is cheating. What do you consider to be a relationship deal breaker?

JC: I have a thing about honesty; I think it’s crucial to a relationship. Otherwise, one person holds all the power. It’s healthy to be straightforward, and it turns out you can wind up weathering a lot. Knowing that everything is on the table—what you see is what you get—lends a sense of safety.

GLAMOUR: And how do you apply that to your own marriage?

JC: Neither my husband nor I am interested in mincing words. If I break something, for example, I have to announce it. I’m a compulsive confessor.

GLAMOUR: Do you agree with the concept of your new film—if a guy doesn’t act overly enthusiastic, or make a great effort in a relationship, he’s “just not that into you”?

JC: Not necessarily: It could also mean he’s not able to translate nice feelings into nice behavior. Or that he has really horrible communication skills. But you wouldn’t want to be in that relationship, anyway!

GLAMOUR: As a married woman, do you have a perspective on the singles scene?

JC: It’s been so long since I’ve dated that I don’t understand what’s going on anymore with things like Facebook and MySpace. A friend of mine wrote “LOL” to me the other day. I thought she meant “Lord, oh, Lord.”

GLAMOUR: Laugh out loud!

JC: I’ve been married for almost six years, you know.
