Tom Hardy Apologizes To George Miller For Being "Frustrated" On The Set Of 'Mad Max: Fury Road'
Tom Hardy doesn’t say much in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” but according to most rumors flying around, the actor had plenty to talk about when the cameras weren’t rolling. He reportedly clashed with co-star Charlize Theron — which both actors have played down, though it’s notable that Theron has already said she’s reluctant to do another movie — and now it seems he made things a bit difficult for director George Miller, too.
Zoe Kravitz said she observed both actors having moments of anger, but that it was Hardy who “really took it out on George the most, and that was a bummer to see.” But as Kravitz explained, “In some ways, you also can’t blame him, because a lot was being asked of these actors and there were a lot of unanswered questions.”
She is saying he was the one “took it on the director the most” but then again tries to justifying him/them. But, according to the new book she (one of the wives) didn’t like Hardy neither!
P. J. Voeten: At some stage, the Wives didn’t like Tom, and one day, they didn’t even disguise it: They were just yelling at each other in front of us.
It seems it’s just that Theron was the most prominent “rival”. And yeah, that she has a strong temper but she is also called “professional” and it’s suggested that she should had been protected more against him.
