Charlize Theron Shaves Head for 'Max Max: Fury Road'

Charlize Theron Shaves Head for 'Max Max: Fury Road'

Charlize Theron carries her adorable son Jackson while leaving a doctor’s office on Monday (June 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 36-year-old actress recently shaved her head for the upcoming action flick Mad Max: Fury Road, in which she’ll play Furiosa opposite Tom Hardy.

“A lot of people have sent me these children’s books, and there’s this amazing book, a best-seller [called] ‘Go the F— to Sleep,’” Charlize told MTV News about settling into parenthood.

“This book was fantastic for me because it made me realize that I don’t need to judge myself right now,” she added. “The whole book is just basically, ‘Please, go the f— to sleep.’ [Jackson] doesn’t understand anything right now, and so he just wants my face to look a certain way.”

Also pictured: Charlize leaving a yoga class the day before in Los Angeles.

FYI: Charlize is wearing a Cardigan by Lynne Hiriak top.

    @Gh: “beautiful hair”? Her hair was damaged and very noticeably so. Dry ends and breakage were very visible.

    She’s certainly got short hair under that hat. I assume it’s for Mad Max.

    Yes, she shaved her hair off for Mad Max. Disappointing as that is, hair GROWS and it will be back better than ever!

    WOW at her shaving it off……she has a pretty stunning face so when it grows out a little, she’ll look amazing. Shes the type of face that can rock both long and short hair convincingly

    GOOD for her for shaving her head for a role…that is what I call commitment to the craft. I applaud her…I bet she looks gorgeous. As for the book she is talking about, (I can’t recall the author), but the book is hilarious! It’s a Daddy’s perspective on getting their child to bed…such a fun good hearted book. But, I say BRAVO Charlize Theron for shaving your head. I can’t wait to see more pics.

    @Ugonna Wosu: How am I jealous when i’m a fan you idiot. God I hate stans, makes us fans look pathetic.

    derek117 Says:

    Charlize is lovely and has beautiful hair, so to cut it off to be in a stupid movie that most people will forget before the closing credits are over is DUMB. Whoever suggested it/let her do it I am sure is NOT a straight man.

    Ugonna Wosu Says:


    you can be a jealous FAN,” you idiot”. And I don’t remember mentioning anyone’s name, let alone some loon named “A”(“Pretty Little Liars” much???). Looks like you exposed yourself as the “jealous one” without my help at all.

    Ugonna Wosu Says:


    LOL. It’ll grow back.

    I think she looks lovely with the short hair. I can’t wait to see her without her hat. When I was a teen and a punk rock girl I shaved my head to about 1/4 inch long. My boyfriend at the time loved it and I have I say it is very empowering and a good education. You realize your hair does not define you. Plus it FELT SO GOOD. So soft and no wasted time styling it. Plus it really does grow back. It’s just hair. Not a limb. And, I actually got more compliments than you would believe.
    Anyway, good for you Charlize. Those bald wigs always look fake, no matter how well they apply them. And knowing her she donated all that beautiful hair to a little girl with cancer. Just think some little girl in some little town could be wearing the hair of Charlize Theron. What a crown indeed.
    Same goes for Anne Hathaway!

    Love her outfit. Even more beautiful baby, of course.

    But the book she references is horrible and a sad representation of how ungrateful and self-centered many of today’s parents are.

    Oh well.

    It will grow back soon enough I’m sure.

    She seems like such a lovely person, inside and out. Very rare in Hollyweird.

    She is very ugly without makeup and hair.
    She’s not aging well.
    Looks like a homeless person in those pics. S*ck it blind fans.
