Anya Taylor-Joy Opens Up About Playing Furiosa After Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max' Origin Story

Anya Taylor-Joy is opening up about stepping into Charlize Theron‘s shoes and getting to portray Furiosa in the Mad Max origin story.

The 24-year-old actress chatted with MTV’s Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, and revealed that she’s “humbled and grateful” to be following Charlize in the role.

“[Charlize] did such an incredible job and it was so beautiful and I can’t even think about trying to step [into her shoes],” Anya shared. “It has to be something different, because it just can’t be done.”

Anya added that “the first thing that went through my head when I found out I was going to do it was, ‘I am so excited to work so hard.’ The level of commitment that has been shown before me, I endeavor to match that, and that makes me really excited.”

Previously, Charlize revealed how she felt about being replaced by a younger actress in the role for a prequel film.

“It’s a little heartbreaking, for sure,” she confessed. “I really love that character, and I’m so grateful that I had a small part in creating her. She will forever be someone I think of and reflect on fondly. Obviously, I would love to see that story continue, and if he feels like he has to go about it this way, then I trust him [George Miller] in that manner.”

Charlize Theron Explains Why She Hasn't Dated Anyone in Five Years

Charlize Theron hasn’t been in a relationship in years and she’s opening up to Drew Barrymore about why she’s not looking for one right now.

The Oscar-winning actress chatted about her dating life during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, which aired on Thursday (September 17).

“It is strange for people to, kind of, wrap their heads around it,” Charlize said. “I’ve been on a few dates, but I haven’t dated anybody for over five years.”

Drew also said that she has been on a break from dating.

Charlize added, “I feel like I’m in a place in my life where you’ve got to come with a lot of game, not the kind of game that we think of, the kind of game that’s like my life is really good so you better be able to bring that and maybe better because I just won’t accept anything less. And my life with my children and with my incredible adopted family that I have around me I don’t long for that much.”

“I can honestly say this on my life, I don’t feel lonely. Once I had my children, it’s not that it replaces something or makes you less interested in something else,” Charlize said. “I’m still firing on all cylinders. I think your priorities are in a place that is of high demand because it’s a lot of work to be a parent. Part of that is at the end of the day I get in bed and I go I wouldn’t want this day to be anything different.”

Charlize was most recently linked to Sean Penn and she recently cleared up a rumor about their relationship.
