Actor Tom Hardy has opened up about his rumoured feud with Charlize Theron, insisting he loved working with her on the Mad Max set.

In 2012, sources told PerezHilton.com the actors did not get along while filming because Theron found it difficult to work with the Inception star, who refused to come out of character when the cameras stopped rolling.

However, The Dark Knight Rises star explains he finds the reports "disappointing".

He tells Esquire magazine, "I think she is f**king awesome. I think she's incredible. I think she's one of the most talented actresses of our generation."
