Paul Bettany SOLO #HanSoloEvent

British-born actor Paul Bettany is one lucky guy. For starters, he’s British so he has that really cool accent. Then there’s the fact that he’s married to actress Jennifer Connelly.

Well, technically I was with a group of 24 other bloggers, but we all entered a galaxy far far way (called Los Angeles) for the Red Carpet Premiere of SOLO: A Star Wars Story. I’ve only been on one other Red Carpet event previously (for Muppets: Most Wanted), so I wasn’t sure what to expect this time around. All I knew was this was the first Star Wars …
