Riley Keough had one of the "coolest experiences" on the film set where she met her future husband.

The 25-year-old actress recently married stuntman Ben Smith-Peterson after meeting him whilst they worked on 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and will always treasure her stint making the film.

She said: "It was truly one of the coolest experiences. It was a different experience to most films - we were all together day and night, we all lived next door to each other, we'd work together all day then come home and eat dinner and watch movies together.

"I made a lot of friends and it was really hard work, mentally and physically - there was a lot of alcohol and tears.

"We also had the best time with each other. You really get to know someone you're stuck with for six months.

"I think we all learned a lot and are very proud. It was extremely special."

However, Riley insists she and Ben didn't get together during the main shoot, but when they returned to re-record some scenes.

She told HELLO! magazine: "We didn't really know each other when we were shooting in Africa.

"We had spoken a few times but it wasn't until we did reshoots that we started becoming friends - and then the love part."
