Paul Bettany made a dazzling impression on movie fans in the Big Apple this week when he took to the red carpet with a new hairstyle. The British actor sported a striking platinum blond look as he accompanied Oscar-winning wife Jennifer Connelly to the premiere of her latest flick.

The glamorous couple, who have a two-year-old son together, hit the town to promote the spine-chiller Dark Water. But despite the movie's gloomy title they were both looking positively luminous at the glitzy event, with her in a vibrant red dress and him in a sharply-cut grey suit.

2005 looks set to be a big year for Paul, who has a prominent role in the hotly anticipated The Da Vinci Code. The 34-year-old, who is currently filming the thriller Firewall with Harrison Ford, has also been tipped to play the Joker in a sequel to Batman Begins.

Jennifer, meanwhile, is well-accustomed to life in the limelight, having made her big screen debut at the tender age of 14 in the epic gangster movie Once Upon A Time In America. And if the predictions of industry experts prove correct, her husband, who seems to be experiencing a case of "blond ambition", will soon be joining her on Hollywood's most wanted list.
