Weaver has only positive things to say about her co-star, Macbeth star Worthington.

"He's a terrific actor, he really is. And a lovely guy. I think he's going to do a wonderful job. His humor and charm and just genuineness as a person are very evident as soon as you start working with him."

Weaver says she plays a botanist who mentors Worthington's character.

"I'm not allowed to give too much away, but we have parallel adventures. There's a younger person's story and a smaller, older person's story all happening at the same time. All my scenes are with [Worthington]. It's really a lovely relationship."

Avatar opens May 22nd, 2009.
