The South African star and her adorable 6-month-old even wore matching outfits -- Theron and Jackson both wore red shirts as she carried him.

Theron first agreed to star in "Mad Max: Fury Road" opposite Tom Hardy in 2009, but a series of production setbacks delayed filming. "It's been three years: It's time to skin this cat already!" Theron told Us Weekly while promoting Prometheus in London May 30. "I'm very excited about it."

The original "Mad Max" created such a vivid world, so to go back and re-imagine it and re-play in that sandbox sounds like fun to me," she continued of the flick that made Mel Gibson a household name. "It's a really challenging piece of material."
