According to production testimonials, they both had quite a strong personality so they were either fighting or praising each other’s work. Likewise, Charlize Theron herself told her version of this love-hate relationship.

“We were like two parents in the front seat of the car. ANDwe were fighting or praising each other (I don’t know which is worse) and everyone had to deal with it. It was horrible, we shouldn’t have done that, we should have been better”, confessed the actress who played Imperator Furiosa in the film.

It should be noted that Tom Hardy, who personified Max Rockatansky, has also referred to the relationship between the two, acknowledging that could have been a better partner for Theron.

“The pressure on both of them managed to be overwhelming at times. What she needed was something better, perhaps a partner with more experience. I like to think that now that I’m older and uglier, I could become one,” she expressed.

There is a specific incident that the production remembers to this day, and that was reported by cameraman Mark Goellnicht. The events occurred on a day that was a particularly long recording day in the “war rig” (the large truck that both drive during the film) so the call to the set was at 8 in the morning.

Charlize arrived at 8, sat on the war rig knowing Tom would never be there at 8Not even if he had been specially asked to arrive on time. He was known for never being on time in the morning, if the set call was early, he just wouldn’t show up,” he explained.

Effectively, Hardy never arrived on time, on the contrary, three hours later he appeared in the set. “Theron gets out of the car and starts yelling at him and insulting him, what they could hear was ‘well, damn dog, a hundred dollars less for every minute you delayed the whole team’, ‘you have no respect for anyone,'” recalled the cameraman

The Mad Max: Fury Road production team became concerned when Hardy approached Theron threateningly. and began to respond to the insults. The actress felt intimidated by her partner so she asked the producer Denise DiNovi came to the set to support her.
