Kate Beckinsale has found marrying the director of her latest film ensured she has an easier time on set.

The British beauty, who is filming sequel Underworld: Evolution with husband Len Wiseman, is enjoying the close attention her director is paying to her fight scenes.

Beckinsale and Wiseman married in May 2004 after falling in love on the set of 2003 vampire tale, UNDERWORLD.

She, says, "Len's more reluctant to torture me in this film since we're married.

"This story takes place after Underworld and SELENE's become a vampire exile, really.

"She betrayed her master, lost her coven and now she's all gone."
