RELATED: Charlize's life in pictures
Charlize Theron has appeared in countless films since she made her acting debut with an uncredited role in 1995's "Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest." The former model won an Oscar and a Golden Globe in 2004 for her work in "Monster," scored Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations in 2006 for her performance in "North Country" and earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2012 for her role in "Young Adult." The South African stunner's biggest hits in recent years include "Snow White and the Huntsman" and its sequel, "The Huntsman: Winter's War," "Mad Max: Fury Road," "Prometheus," "A Million Ways to Die in the West" and "Hancock." She romanced Craig Bierko for two years in the mid-'90s, Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins for three years in the late '90s and Stuart Townsend for almost nine years during the aughts. She then romanced Sean Penn, to whom she was briefly engaged. Charlize has also adopted two children: Jackson in 2012 and August in 2015.
Helen Mirren reportedly stars as Magdalene Shaw, the mother of Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw, who briefly appeared in "Fast & Furious 6" before taking over the mantle as the primary baddie in "Furious 7," and his younger brother, Luke Evans' Owen Shaw, the gang's primary adversary in "Fast & Furious 6."
Helen Mirren, who's been acting since the late '60s, has earned three Golden Globe Awards — plus 11 more nominations — over the years. She's also a four-time Emmy winner and has earned Academy Award nominations for her performances in "The Madness of King George," "Gosford Park," "The Last Station" and "The Queen," for which she won the best lead actress Oscar in 2007. In recent years, the celebrated English actress has appeared in "Collateral Beauty," "Trumbo," "Eye in the Sky," "Woman in Gold," "Hitchcock" and "RED." She's been married to director Taylor Hackford since 1997, though they'd already been an item for more than a decade when they finally tied the knot.
Scott Eastwood stars as Eric "Little Nobody" Reisner, the protégé of Kurt Russell's covert government agent Mr. Nobody — whom you might remember from "Furious 7."
Scott Eastwood made his acting debut in 2006's "Flags of Our Fathers," which was directed by his very own father: Clint Eastwood. (The young actor went by the name Scott Reeves — his mom is former flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves, a former lover of the iconic actor-director — early in his career to avoid the appearance of nepotism.) He appeared in two more of his father's films, "Gran Torino" and "Invictus," and in 2012's "Trouble with the Curve," in which his dad starred, before breaking out on his own as a model and actor. Scott has since starred in "Fury," "The Longest Ride," "Snowden" and "Suicide Squad." He also appeared in Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" music video. He's romanced Jana Kramer, Sara Leal — who famously hooked up with Ashton Kutcher while he was still married to Demi Moore — and models Brittany Brousseau and Jewel Brangman, who died in a car accident in 2014, less than a year after they'd parted ways. Scott has also been linked to Adriana Lima and Nina Dobrev.
Kristofer Hivju made his Hollywood debut in the 2011 remake of "The Thing." In 2013, the Norwegian actor appeared in "After Earth" and joined the cast of "Game of Thrones" as Tormund Giantsbane. (He's set to appear in the upcoming seventh season of the hit HBO series.) Kristofer wed TV host and documentary director Gry Molvær Hivju in August 2015. They have two daughters.
F. Gary Gray is the fearless leader of the eighth installment in the "Fast & Furious" franchise: He directed "The Fate of the Furious."
F. Gary Gray, who's directed music videos for some of the biggest names in rap and hip-hop, made his feature film directorial debut with 1995's "Friday." He went on to direct "Set It Off," "The Negotiator," "A Man Apart," "The Italian Job," "Be Cool," "Law Abiding Citizen" and the Oscar-nominated 2015 biopic "Straight Outta Compton," in which he also briefly popped up as DJ Greg Mack. Gary was once engaged to actress Elise Neal.
