Charlize Theron has been spotted for the first time proudly sporting a freshly shaved head as she visited her home country of South Africa, reports Yahoo.
The Snow White And The Huntsman actress debuted her uncovered new do while traveling with her baby boy Jackson in Namibia on Sunday. The shaved head is the result of the role that she has taken on during the filming of the “Mad Max” sequel “Fury Road” where she will be playing the role of “Furiosa.”
Theron is no stranger to having to alter herself to fit the character of a movie as she was reported to have gained a total of 30 pounds for her portrayal of a serial killer in the 2003 Oscar-winning film “Monster.” The weight gain was accompanied by a set of fake crooked teeth to give the actress the correct look for the role, reports The Improper.
A follow-up to the original “Mad Max” that featured a talented Mel Gibson, Theron was excited to get the ball rolling after originally agreeing to star opposite actor Tom Hardy for the sequel of the original.
“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 added.
