Holy abs, Batman! Jennifer Connelly enjoyed a dip in the ocean with her husband, Paul Bettany, on Wednesday, August 17, on the shores of Formentera, Spain. And while her entire bikini body was on point in a plunging teal two-piece, the real star of the show was her impossibly toned tummy.

The Oscar-winning actress, 45, flaunted her ripped torso in the Eres Petula halter top ($290, net-a-porter.com) and boy short-style bottoms ($255, net-a-porter.com). Naturally, the two-piece also highlighted the rest of her athletic build, including her toned arms and slender legs.

Connelly paired the buckle-accented separates with a long gold chain necklace and aviator shades. She finished by slicking her hair back into a neat bun.

Meanwhile, the Avengers actor, 44, showed off his own muscular frame in medium-blue swim trunks while helping his wife in and out of the ocean by hand.

Last fall, Connelly revealed just how her husband of 13 years, whom she met on the set of A Beautiful Mind, won her over. “I remember meeting him at the first read-through,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I thought, ‘Hmm, he’s really good, that guy.'”

In return, Bettany said he thought, “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.'” But in the end, she fell hard thanks to his secret talent: “He started playing guitar and it was all over,” the Labyrinth actress confessed.

Though Connelly has been off the screen since 2014 — when she dropped four movies in one year — she’s gearing up for her next release: American Pastoral, which hits theaters October 21. Based on the Philip Roth book, the ’60s-set film costars Connelly and Ewan McGregor as parents searching for their missing daughter (played by Dakota Fanning) after she’s accused of an act of terrorism.
