Tom Hardy Rumor We Love: His Mad Max Method Acting Is Driving Charlize Theron, Er, Mad

Tom Hardy's Mad Max method acting is reportedly driving Charlize Theron crazy

We believe this story as far as we can metaphorically throw it, but as it involves our personal favorite Christian Grey candidate and amateur tattoo artist/rapper Tom Hardy, we also kind of love repeating it. According to Radar Online, Hardy is not getting along with his Mad Max: Fury Road co-star Charlize Theron because he insists on staying in character when cameras aren’t rolling. “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,” Radar’s source says of Hardy, playing the titular role made famous by Mel Gibson. “Charlize has tried to talk to him during breaks in filming but he shuts himself off from the rest of the cast.”

We don’t doubt that shooting a mega-budget movie in the middle of the desert in Namibia is enough to drive anyone a little bit crazy, especially when you take into account the plot of the flick, slated for release next year. “Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Theron),” director George Miller said in a statement from the studio in July. “This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.”

And while we’ve heard stories that Fury Road is in danger of running over budget, this rumor of Hardy and Theron not getting along just sounds kind of silly and unsourced. Still, we can’t help but get giggly about the thought of Tom mumbling to himself. Not that we’d ever want anyone to get on Charlize’s bad side, of course!
