The relationship on the set between the leading actors in the movie “Mad Max 4: The Road of Fury” Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy were very tense. The actors themselves admitted this in an interview with NY Times.
“Looking back, I understand that I simply did not have enough levels of empathy to really, truly realize what he should have felt when he was in Mel Gibson’s place. But this is scary! And I think because of my own fear, we built walls between us to protect ourselves, instead of saying to each other: “This is scary for you, and it is also scary for me too. Let’s be kind to each other. “In a strange way, we acted like our heroes: it all came down to survival,” Theron said.
“I think in many ways I jumped above my head. At times, the pressure on both of us was unbearable. What she needed was a better, perhaps more experienced partner than me. This is something you can’t play. I wanted to think that now that I’m older and uglier, I could rise to that level, “Hardy added.
Recall that the film was released in May 2015. His fees were very modest – 374 million dollars. In the spring of 2020, it became known that director George Miller plans to remove the prequel without Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy.
