Multiple celebs have been rocking shaved heads as of late! First, American Idol alum Kellie Pickler shaved her head in support of a friend diagnosed with cancer. Charlize Theron is now following in Kellie’s footsteps, although the reasoning behind the actress and Top Chef guest judge’s new ‘do is a bit different: the shaved head is for a movie role!
If there’s any actress capable of pulling off a huge physical transformation, it’s Charlize Theron. In 2003, the award-winning actress gained weight and dressed as frumpy as possible in order to play serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film Monster. Today, Charlize’s portrayal of the serial killer continues to regularly land on lists of the best movie transformations.
Charlize Theron’s latest movie makeover may not be as severe as the one she endured nearly ten years ago, but it still forced a double take out of usually complimentary fans. During a recent appearance at a cafe in South Africa, Charlize appeared to have replaced her signature blonde hair with a shaved head. The shaved head is not a super recent development — Charlize shaved it some time ago so that she could film Mad Max: Fury Road. However, this latest appearance was one of the first in which Charlize showed off her shaved head away from the movie set and without a hat.
We’re not sure what to think of the new hairdo. Kellie Pickler appears to pull off the look better, but then again, the singer’s post-shaving appearances have generally involved fancy gowns and heavy makeup. Charlize, on the other hand, was just out and about in South Africa,.
How do you like Charlize Theron’s new look? Will you be glad when filming is over and she can return to her stunning blonde locks? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
