Tom Hardy, 44, says he was “overwhelmed” on the set of Mad Max where he and Charlize Theron starred together
Tom Hardy has addressed claims that Charlize Theron was “less feared” by the “aggressive” actor on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road.
The pair had a fiery relationship during filming in 2015 and often shouted at each other in front of the crew.
After an explosive performance, Charlize appointed a producer to always be by her side to “protect” against the Venom actor.
According to a new book by New York Times columnist Kyle Buchanan, she once called the 44-year-old a “asshole” after he kept her waiting for hours.
But Tom has talked about his relationship with Charlize and called the experience “overwhelming”.

He told columnist Kyle: “‘In hindsight, I was thinking about many things. The pressure on both of us was overwhelming at times.
“What she needs is a better life partner, maybe more experience in me. It’s something that can’t be faked. I like to think that now that I’m older and uglier, I can rise up. in that opportunity.”
Tom took over the main character of Mel Gibson and Charlize starred as newcomer Imperator Furiosa, a lieutenant to the villain Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne).

Camera moderator Mark Goellnicht talked about how he once witnessed one of the pair’s rows.
He said that Tom was often late for filming, and one day Charlize waited for hours in costume for him to arrive.
“It was nine o’clock, still no Tom,” Goellnicht recounted.
“Charlize, do you want to get out of the War Truss House and walk around?” he asked her.
He explained that Charlize then refused to move, adding: “She’s really going to make a splash. She doesn’t go to the bathroom, doesn’t do anything. She just sits in the War Rig.”
Despite the fact that the producers made “special requests” for Tom to be on time, he still showed up at 11am.

When he arrived, she was furious.
Mark said, “‘She jumped out of the War Rig, and she started cursing him in the face, saying, ‘Fine, the king makes a hundred thousand dollars for every minute he’s kept the flag. this crew” and ‘You are so disrespectful!’
“She was right. She yelled. It was loud, very windy – he could have heard some of that, but he lunged at her and went, ‘What did you tell me? ‘”

The cameraman said that Tom was “quite aggressive” and Charlize “really felt threatened”.
It was then that she turned around and asked me for protection.
“It got to a place where it was a little out of reach, and there was a feeling that sending a female producer down could balance some of that, because I didn’t feel safe,” says Charlize.
