Appearing in movies from Monster to Mad Max to Long Shot, Charlize Theron has made herself difficult to distinguish as one type of actor or another. Even she admits, though, that she doesn’t always see what others see in a project right away, as is the case with her thoughts on Mad Max: Fury Road and MCU in a new interview with hollywood reporter.
While Mad Max: Fury Road debuts as a critically-acclaimed return to form for director George Miller, reports of a rough and controversial setting – especially when it comes to Theron and co-star Tom Hardy – followed it everywhere. Looking back at the 2015 film, Theron has more kind words for the film, though she does offer warnings for the young actors.
“I never really appreciated or respected George Miller’s vision until I saw [the completed film and] Theron said: “Oh my God, this is what’s been on his mind all this time and I can’t hear it.” “And it was the only movie where I was in, ‘If I had another chance, I’d get a little bit more of what he tried to do in the first one.”
With that said, Theron doesn’t want young actors to think they need to go all out with movies like that.
“I hate to say this because I never wanted to encourage young actors or storytellers to believe that they need to suffer or make sacrifices because I really, really don’t believe you believe that. , but there’s a little bit of context around that movie. I think it worked the magic. That doesn’t mean it has to always be, but I think somehow, the lightning in one. That bottle you’re always trying to capture happened in that movie, but, man, it’s f*** difficult,” said Theron.
More recently, however, Theron appeared in the post-credits scene of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as Clea, a sorceress who visits Strange for help at the end of the film. However, she doesn’t always enjoy watching movies like that.
“I’m ignorant, I don’t know the [Marvel] the movies were good enough until a family I consider to be my foster family made me watch them. They’re huge Marvel fans, and I always make fun of them,” Theron explained. “It’s like, ‘Oh my God, you guys are nerds.’ Then one spring break we rented a house and our kids stayed in a camp and they said, ‘You need to sit down and watch.’ So we watched all the movies, and I thought, ‘Oh my God, they’re so good.’ And the kids joined in, and it was a fun ride. And there’s a myth around it and it’s been devised for decades with Clea, and I’m challenged by that. Like, how do you reinvent that? So I’m excited, but honestly, I don’t know what it’s going to be.”
A third Doctor Strange movie hasn’t been announced yet, even if it’s a future Marvel project, so it’s likely to be a few years away, but it looks like Theron wants to have a good time. with this feature when it appears. While Theron was preparing for that, Mad Max director Miller was filming Mad Max: Furiosa, a prequel to Theron’s character, with Anya Taylor-Joy step into the role. Mad Max: Furiosa is set to released in 2024.
