Not all love has been lost in 2015, you guys!!!

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany met on the set of A Beautiful Mind nearly 15 years ago and the rest is history! The pair recalled their instant connection in an interview with ET Online — and it totally renewed our hope in true love!

The 44-year-old actress shared:

"I remember meeting him at the first read through. I thought, 'Hmm, he's really good that guy.'"

Meanwhile, Bettany was distracted with Connelly's intimidating beauty:

"I've never been this close to someone that beautiful before. I remember thinking, 'I bet every man you ever met has tried to flirt with you.'"

Say it with us, folks… awwwww.

The lovebirds wed in 2003 and have two kids together Stellan, 12, and Agnes Lark, 4 — and Connelly's 18-year-old son Kai from a previous marriage.

What about Bettany sealed the deal for Miz Connelly?

"He started playing guitar and it was all over."

He's not just a talented actor and musician, Bettany is also making his directorial debut in his film Shelter released Friday — which stars his love Connelly as a drug-addicted woman on the streets of NYC.

Working together wasn't a problem:

"I feel very creatively aligned with him. We are drawn to similar types of films and filmmaking. I felt I had a lot of freedom to explore. Because he's my husband and I trust him so much, I felt very safe."

We've said it before, but we actually mean it this time… #relationshipgoals!!
