Charlize Theron Shaved Her Head For ‘Mad Max’ Role

Charlize Theron was spotted with a shaved head while visiting her South Africa homeland. The normally glamorous actress reportedly decided to back to her “au natural roots,” for her new movie role.

The Mad Max: Fury Road star was reportedly visiting her mother Gerda over the weekend. Charlize shaved her head earlier this summer before filming on the action movie began. The movie star allegedly was not shy about being seen with a shaved head at the Café Carprice in Cape Town, according to Radar Online.

The photos of Theron with a shaved head depict the actress with much darker hair and some skin blotching. Her Mad Max co-star Tom Hardy was supposedly “driving her crazy” on the film set with his method acting habits.

Access Hollywood notes that Theron will be filming the final scenes of Mad Max: Fury Road while in South Africa. The 37-year-old actress will also narrate the upcoming documentary, Angels In Exile. The film will focus on street children in her homeland, according to Deadline. The film is directed by Billy Raftery. The director reportedly spent eight years following Zulieka and Ariel in the city of Durham.

Charlize had this to say about Angels in Exile:

“You can’t help but connect with Zulieka, her strength and radiant disposition somehow shines through the unimaginably rough world she finds herself in.”

The Academy Award winning actress created the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) in 2007 to support African youth in the fight against HIV/AIDS. CTAOP helps fight aids in the Sub-Saharan African region, but its primary focus has been placed on the movie star’s homeland of South Africa.
