Charlize Theron hit the red carpet to promote Battle in Seattle, which was written and directed by her long time love, Stuart Townsend. "We're very good at separating our work from our relationship," said Townsend at a press conference for the dramatic flick. Still, the first-time director later admitted that their time on set wasn't all business. "She started calling me by the pet name and the crew started calling me by the pet name. I'm trying to be a serious director here, you know!"
