British star Kate Beckinsale has pulled out of several promotional interviews for her new movie UNDERWORLD - fearing questions about her relationship with the film's director Len Wiseman.

Brunette Beckinsale left her partner - and father of daughter LILY - Michael Sheen in January (03) for Wiseman, and the pair are now engaged.

And the PEARL HARBOR star also cancelled a high-profile MAXIM cover shoot, reportedly embarassing her publicist LISA KASTELER so much she sent flowers to apologise to the magazine's West Coast editor CLAUDIA NICOLAYEVSKY.

Kasteler has now parted company with Beckinsale.
