Theron's ‘no diva’

Charlize Theron lightened the mood on the set of A Million Ways to Die in the West.

The actress stars in Seth MacFarlane comedy western A Million Ways to Die in the West. And co-star Rex Linn says she was an absolute pleasure to work with.

"She was great. She was one of the guys. She really is. There's no diva blood going on in her whatsoever. She's a consummate actor, and she's fun as hell, really really great,” he told E! News.

"I didn't know what to expect. But with an actor of her caliber you never know what to expect, but she was one of the dudes, man. She's awesome, she's fantastic," he said.

Rex appreciated Charlize’s relaxed approach. In fact, having the Oscar-winner around helped to lighten the atmosphere.

"When she'd come on the set it wasn't like [whispers] ‘OK, Charlize is on set' she'd just come on the set with the guys and it was like 'What's happening, dudes. Let's do this, let's have some fun,'" he added. "You know she's just one of us. It was always relaxed; it was never any of that 'walk lightly around her' kind of thing, which makes it even better."

Charlize meanwhile made an appearance at the Los Angeles premiere of the movie Thursday night with boyfriend Sean Penn.

The glamorous Hollywood star admitted she had a few butterflies before seeing the finished film with her man.

"Yeah, you always get nervous,” she confessed. "You know my whole family is here and some of my best friends who worked on the movie, and it's that final release that you send something that you really love out there, but it's still subjective and people are going to see it and think something of it. But I love this movie. So I am really excited to share it with everyone I'm here with tonight,” she said.

A Million Ways to Die in the West is scheduled for US release May 30.
