Charlize Theron was too young to remember George Miller’s first Mad Max film, but she vividly remembers hearing about the franchise in her native South Africa, and first seeing Miller’s post apocalyptic world in Tupac’s “California Love” video.

Thats right. Theron admitted to HipHollywood that the song and the Hype Williams directed video were pretty popular in South Africa and she was a huge fan.

“I know that video very well,” said Theron with a smile. ” For some reason Mad Max resonated with people in South Africa and South African culture, and my parents loved the Mad Max films, so I got the Tupac connection. ”

Now some 20 years later Theron is starring alongside Tom Hardy in Miller’s third film from the franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road, and she’s pretty kick ass.  Check out the video above to hear her talk about her role as Furiosa, and also Zoe Kravitz, who plays Toast, open up about her love for the franchise.

Mad Max: Fury Road is in theaters May 15.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
