Charlize Theron is getting candid in V Magazine over her on-set clashes with Tobey Maguire in the 1999 film “The Cider House Rules”;.
It’s been 17 years since the film was released, but Theron is addressing the experience now in the magazine’s summer issue. The pair played lovers in the film about a young man who, after being raised in an orphanage and trained to become a doctor there, decides to leave familiar territory and go out into the world.
“Tobey and I had a bit of a rough time, yeah. I mean, we’re good now. It was a difficult movie,” the 40-year-old Oscar-winner tells the magazine. “Every day is completely different for a completely different reason. Whether it’s the weather, or the writing isn’t there, or you don’t get along with your castmate, you have to be able to go to something else that’s just as powerful. Does it make it as enjoyable? Probably not.”;
Theron explains further, “I mean, there were just a couple of days that Tobey and I had a rough time. The rest of the movie, we actually had a really good time.”;
Despite any on-set tensions between herself and Maguire, Theron says she used her time on “The Cider House Rules”; as a learning experience. “It teaches you different things,”; she said, addressing her working relationship with Maguire. “It taught me that I could fall in love with somebody in my head while looking at someone else. We had some really intimate moments. Tobey and I didn’t feel that way about each other, so I had to figure something else out.”;
The rough moments on set with Maguire isn’t the only time Theron has reportedly had issues with one of her co-stars. Last year, the actress addressed the rumours of tension between herself and “Mad Max: Fury Road”; co-star Tom Hardy with Esquire.
“We f***in’ went at it, yeah,”; she says, chalking up the on-set tension to the isolated filming location and the confinement of the “war rig”; where the pair spent most of their scenes. “It was like a family road trip that just never went anywhere. We never got anywhere. We just drove. We drove into nothingness, and that was maddening sometimes,”; Theron recalls.
