Following years of speculation, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron have finally confirmed their feud on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road.

In a new interview with The New York Times, Hardy and Theron opened up about the difficult shoot and how the challenging production resulted in them butting heads.

"The biggest thing that was driving that entire production was fear," Theron recalled of making the movie, which saw production shut down three times during filming. "I think because of my own fear, we were putting up walls to protect ourselves instead of saying to each other, 'This is scary for you and it's scary for me, too. Let's be nice to each other.' In a weird way, we were functioning like our characters: Everything was about survival."

Hardy agreed with Theron's assessment of the pressure the actors faced. "I think in hindsight, I was in over my head in many ways. The pressure on both of us was overwhelming at times," he explained. "What [Theron] needed was a better, perhaps more experienced, partner in me. That’s something that can’t be faked. I’d like to think that now that I’m older and uglier, I could rise to that occasion."

Looking back, the actors show no ill-will towards each other. Hardy praised Theron's performance saying, "Charlize arguably laid down the finest lead character in an action movie, and that credit is much deserved, in my opinion."

In March we reported that Miller is currently working on a new Mad Max spin-off, with filming scheduled to begin in 2021.
