Kathryn Bigelow & James Cameron

Kathryn Bigelow is the Academy Award winning director of the 2009 war film “The Hurt Locker,” as well as the Patrick Swayze classic “Point Break.” In 1989, she married James “King of the World” Cameron, director of 1997’s “Titanic” and 2009’s “Avatar,” but they still worked together after their 1991 divorce.

Bigelow directed the 1995 science fiction movie “Strange Days,” which featured the services of her ex-husband as co-writer and co-producer. More recently, they battled for supremacy at the 2010 Oscars when “The Hurt Locker” and “Avatar” competed for Best Picture, and they themselves for Best Director. “The Hurt Locker” and Bigelow won, leaving Cameron with only his film’s $2.8 billion box office gross to console him.
