It’s no secret that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy didn’t get along on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road.
While 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the biggest critical and commercial hits of 2015, there had long been rumors that its two stars, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron simply did not get along. Nothing specific about their reported spat has surfaced since then, but their animosity towards one another was confirmed by their co-star, Zoe Kravitz, who was on "Watch What Happens Live" to promote "Rough Night," and candidly answered a fan's question on the Theron/Hardy feud.
Caller: "Did you witness any beef between Charlize and Tom Hardy on the set of 'Mad Max'?"
Kravitz: "Huh. [after a brief pause] Yeah."
Andy Cohen: "It was reported that they didn't get along."
Kravitz: "They didn't get along. We were also in the desert for so long. I think everyone was tired and confused and homesick, and we saw nothing but sand for six months. It's just, you go crazy, you do."
Cohen: "What was the issue? What did it come down to?"
Kravitz: "I actually don't know if it was one issue. I just think they weren't vibing. [...] It was like summer camp, you know? At some point, everyone has like some kind of issue with somebody 'cause it's just the way people are."
Following rumors of the lead actors' feud, Charlize Theron actually got candid about how Tom Hardy was simply not easy to work with on Mad Max: Fury Road. In earlier interviews about the subject, Theron laughed off their feud, saying that she'd heard plenty of actors express that Hardy was easy to work with, and that perhaps the logistics of their roles and setting may have affected him:“From what I hear, he’s not like that on every movie — I hear he’s had good experiences. Maybe the movie is what it is because we struggled so much with each other, and those characters had to struggle so much with each other. If we were chum-chum, maybe the movie would have been 10 times worse.”
The Furiosa actor later explained to Esquire, “We f–in’ went at it, yeah. And on other days, he and [director] George [Miller] went at it. It was the isolation, and the fact that we were stuck in a rig for the entire shoot. We shot a war movie on a moving truck—there’s very little green screen.” Though, Theron clarified they squashed their beef by the end of the shoot.
Meanwhile, Tome was very careful with this answer. Other than to praise Charlize Theron, he didn't go into specifics of what had happened.
“That’s disappointing,” Hardy told Esquire U.K. (via MTV) of the feud. “I think she is f—ing awesome. I think she’s incredible. I think she’s one of the most talented actresses of our generation.”
