'CHICAGO' KICK OFF

The final piece of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's annual summer film series is in place: the opening-night movie will be "Chicago," the reigning Academy Award winner as Best Picture.

"Chicago" will be screened Aug. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Byham Theater. The summer film festival will continue in that venue through the end of the month on Thursday through Sunday nights.

Each of the films was selected for a connection to Pittsburgh -- either an actor, director, producer or a movie that was shot here. "Chicago" was directed by former Squirrel Hill resident and Carnegie Mellon University graduate Rob Marshall.

Hulk's crush

Jennifer Connelly says winning an Academy Award for "A Beautiful Mind" hasn't improved her job offers very much.

"There is still a hierarchy, a food chain, that I am not at the top of," Connelly tells Harper's Bazaar in its July issue. "I'm not necessarily the greatest box-office draw."

She won a best-supporting actress Oscar in 2002 for playing the wife of schizophrenic math genius John Forbes Nash (Russell Crowe).

Connelly, who's expecting a child with actor-husband Paul Bettany this summer, said she was delighted to appear in Ang Lee's "The Hulk," though a bit puzzled about how to handle her role.

"Ang didn't want the characters themselves to be conscious of their comic-book world," she said.

Connelly and Bettany met on the set of "A Beautiful Mind," but didn't start dating until about a year after filming ended, the 32-year-old actress told the magazine.

"I didn't think I was going to have any more kids," said Connelly, who has a 5-year-old son, Kai, from a previous relationship. "But then suddenly, with Paul, I really wanted to. And we just thought, 'Why not sooner rather than later?' "
