Tom Hardy‘s on-set experience with Charlize Theron was “overwhelming”.

The 44-year-old actor starred alongside the Oscar-winning actress in 2015’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, and he’s admitted to being “in over [his] head” on the set of the George Miller-directed film, after Charlize recently confessed that she “didn’t feel safe” following a huge row with her co-star.

Tom told New York Times columnist Kyle Buchanan: “In hindsight, I was in over my head in many ways. The pressure on both of us was overwhelming at times.

“What she 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.”

Charlize, 46, recently apologised “profusely” for their infamous on-set rows and admitted that their behaviour made for a difficult working environment.

She said in Kyle’s new book, ‘Blood, Sweat and Chrome: The Wild and True Story of Mad Max: Fury Road’: “It was like two parents in the front of the car.

“We were either fighting or we were icing each other – I don’t know which one is worse – and (our co-stars) had to deal with it in the back. It was horrible! It was not a conducive working environment … I apologise profusely.”

The Hollywood star thinks producer Doug Mitchell acted as “a man forgiving another man”.

Charlize also suggested that having a woman in a position of power may have eased some of the tension.

She said: “It got to a place where it was kind of out of hand, and there was a sense that maybe sending a woman producer down could maybe equalise some of it.

“A lot of what I felt was coming my way from Doug was … oh, [screw] it. I’ll just say it. It was a man forgiving another man for really bad behaviour, and I didn’t feel safe.”
