The new reboot of the ‘Mad Max’ film series pits Tom alongside Charlize Theron, with the duo at the centre of all the dystopian action, and has had rave reviews since its release earlier this month.

"Did you ever read the script and think, 'Why are all these women in here?' I thought this was supposed to be a man's movie?"

After what felt like a decade of silence, and a brief look of shade in its purest form, Tom offered, by way of response, a simple: “No. Not for one minute.”
