UNDER THE SEA The Academy Award winner recently took her family to Little Dix Bay resort (Virgin Gorda, 888/767-3966 or 284/495-5555; www.littledixbay.com; doubles from $450) in the British Virgin Islands. "I couldn't get over the turquoise water—you can see thirty feet down. The ocean floor almost looks as if it's been raked like a Japanese Zen garden."
NATURAL WOMAN "I chose the B.V.I. because they're very natural. They're very environmentally attuned. It's important to me to be in a place that celebrates its surroundings."
DOUBLE TIME Harden is currently working on two films at once: Mona Lisa Smile, with Julia Roberts, and Mystic River, directed by Clint Eastwood. Does she feel stretched too thin?"That's what I ask myself: Can I be a mom and be a wife and have a real family and a real life, and also do this work?And—knock wood—I am able to do that."
—H. Scott Jolley
