Watts and Penn both star in the new political thriller, which is based on the memoirs of real life former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent Valerie Plame.

The actress is currently promoting the new movie without her co-star, as Penn is said to be too busy with his charity work to take part. The Oscar-winner's absence has sparked rumours he refused to join the promotional trail because of a feud with director Liman, but Watts is adamant she wasn't aware of any problems between the pair during filming.

She tells the Hollywood Reporter, "On set they got on absolutely fine. Sean and I had three weeks together - there were no spats on the set then. But yes, we were all very passionate about the film."

And Watts is adamant she got along with Liman as well, adding, "Doug and I got on very well. You expect to go through a few wrestling matches..."
