Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are reportedly two of the most down-to-earth actors out there, so this story seems like it could be made up. Radar Online is reporting that Theron and Hardy, who play the leads in the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, are not getting along on the set of the film. Radar is saying that Hardy is annoying Theron by ‘constantly talking to himself’ on the set, and she feels as if actors should be able to switch off their emotions as soon the camera stops rolling.
In other words, Theron doesn’t like the fact that Hardy is a ‘method’ actor. However, Hardy has previously gotten on famously well with all of his other co-stars, and has never been reported to be a ‘method’ actor, even on such rigorous films as ‘Bronson’ and ‘Warrior’.
The source says, “Charlize and Tom are just not getting on together,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “Professionally, they are doing a wonderful job, but in-between takes Tom likes to stay in character and is constantly talking to himself and mumbling things. Charlize has tried to talk to him during breaks in filming but he shuts himself off from the rest of the cast. She has the ability to switch off when she’s not filming, and can immediately turn into her character as soon the camera’s rolling. However, he prefers to isolate himself and Charlize thinks he’s a weirdo! But I don’t think that bothers him, he just does his own thing, the source revealed.”
Although this could be true, it just doesn’t ring true that two of the most fun and easy going actors of today’s movie stars wouldn’t get along well.
