Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey have an animated movie coming out in a week or so called Kubo And The Two Strings. They cover the new issue of Parade and tell the magazine about mentoring youth through their respective foundations. It’s a good read about their work outside of Hollywood.
Inside Hollywood though… Charlize Theron is the villain in Fast 8. And all the gossip this week has been about the beef on Fast 8 between The Rock and Vin Diesel. Charlize has experience not getting on with a co-star. It’s well known that she and Tom Hardy clashed during the filming of Mad Max: Fury Road. Laziness and work ethic had nothing to do with it in that case though. Neither one doubted the other’s commitment. Each just thought the other was an asshole.
What you can take from that situation, however, is that Charlize Theron doesn’t take sh-t. I can’t see either one of them making her wait on set. Like there is no way Charlize Theron was sitting around wasting her time for 3 hours while Vin was napping in his trailer. On Instagram she’s given love to both:
So maybe it’s not the producers or the studio who can settle this. Maybe this kind of boy sh-t requires a proper hard ass broad like Charlize Theron to step in.
Speaking of Instagram though, we got another gift from Vin Diesel on Instagram yesterday. For the last several days, he’s been accused of being spoiled dick on set. His first social media response to leverage the love he has for his baby daughter in the face of doubts about his professional reputation. His second response? Invoking the memory of the late Paul Walker.
