    Charlize Theron And Tom Hardy's "Mad Max" Stunt Doubles Fell In Love On Set

    It was love... at first fight.

    New Zealander stunt doubles Dayna and Dane Grant met while filming Mad Max: Fury Road in the Namibian desert in 2012. They fell in love and are now married.

    A regular ~meet cute~ tale, right?

    While Dayna was working as a stunt double for Charlize Theron and her character Furiosa, Dane was covering Tom Hardy and the movie's namesake, Max.

    "So the two of us were doing this – dare I say – very S&M-type fight, it's a love/hate mixture between these characters. They're very close, there's chains, they're holding each other in very intimate positions, and the longer we were doing it the more we're kind of eyeing each other up," Dane told Stuff NZ.

    The couple married in March 2013, and now have a 14-month-old son, Ryder.

    While it's obviously unknown whether or not the child will pursue a career in stunts, all fairy-tale signs point to "yes".

    See kids? Love really can be found in the strangest of places.
