Teresa Palmer and Casey Affleck didn’t have to play get-to-know-you games on the set of their heist thriller, Triple 9, where they play husband and wife. “I know Casey perennially because my stepson [Isaac, 7] is best friends with his son [Atticus, 8],” the Aussie actress, 29, told Us Weekly on Tuesday, February 16, at the film’s L.A. premiere. “I know Casey as a dad from school, so it was funny to work with him in this capacity.”

The leggy blonde, who wore a deep purple Lanvin minidress and jewels by Anne Sisteron, brought director husband Mark Webber to the star-studded event.

I'm known for throwing big parties and today was no different! Bodhi's epic 2nd birthday party was everything we were hoping for (I seriously started hanging decorations a week ago ?) we had a HUGE amount of kids swimming in the pool, playing in the sandpit, climbing all over the playground, painting at the paint station and hanging in the teepee reading nook! I remember a moment today when I looked around at the beautiful chaos and thought "this, right here is what makes me perfectly happy". I was truly blissed out and in my element today. And @likemark appreciative that you let me boss you around this past week! ? thanks to everyone who came to celebrate our little man. We are so grateful that he chose us as his parents, everything is brighter because of him. Happy (almost!) 2nd bday to my best friend Bodhi. ❤️⭐️✨?

“We actually said, ‘Parents night out!’” the mom of 2-year-old son Bodhi cracked. “We were like, ‘This is a date night for us, so we’re going to eat some Sugar Fish sushi after the premiere’s done!”

Palmer couldn’t help but brag about her “sweet” baby at home though.

“He’s definitely talking up a storm,” the Warm Bodies actress raved. “He actually just started ballet class. He’s the only guy in the class, but he’s the best I think in the class. Everyone says he has a beautiful pointe already. It’s really cute.”
