Charlize Theron: Shaved Head in South Africa!

Charlize Theron shows off her shaved head while eating a meal at Cafe Caprice on Friday (November 16) in Cape Town, South Africa.

The 37-year-old actress was joined by her mother Gerda at the trendy Camps Bay pavement eatery.

Charlize is currently in Cape Town to film the final scenes of her film Mad Max: Fury Road, which she shaved her head for earlier this year.

It was recently announced that Charlize will narrate the documentary Angels In Exile about street kids in her native South Africa, according to Deadline.

    Eeek being in the desert has really messed up her skin. I guess Tom Hardy’s beard saved his face.

    I’m really looking forward to Mad Max. I thought she was great in Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus this year. She makes a great villain.

    Jane Says:

    So much respect for her, shaving the hair off is such a huge drastic decision. And the fact she wanted to go there is cool. And i dont think her skin is that bad, click on zoom, its just bad shade!

    So refreshing to see such an authentic natural beauty, that change us from the rest of the superficial fake hollywood actresses.

    It looks as though Charlize has recently had either a chemical peel or laser resurfacing.

    mary Says:

    Can’t be the shading, there are various shots of her bad skin in different positions, see the original source of this story, you will see she just plainly has very bad skin under all the hollywood makeup. Makes you wonder! The other girls in the photo seem to have better skin in all photos. Amazing what a bit of special effects can do.

    Ugonna Wosu Says:

    Charlize has either a sunburn or a some bug bites. Its disappointing, but I know she’s beautiful either way so I won’t make a big deal out of it.

  43. 43
    Ugonna Wosu Says:

    @mary: it is recent, she did not look like this before without makeup.

  44. 44
    Gigi Says:

    Everyone making crude remarks about her skin are just mean. She has hyper pigmentation…she’s talked about it in interviews before. Because I’m sure you’re all so perfect…..

  45. 45
    Purple Poet Says:

    Looks like her skin is breaking out, probably from months of being out in the sun wearing all that makeup for her character in Mad Max. I know people want to be mean when a beauty is caught not looking perfect. It just shows she’s human. See ladies, even Charlize Theron gets breakouts on her skin.

    It could be an allergic reaction to something! I still love her and I still think she’s beautiful!

  55. 55
    Annie Says:

    I wonder if she went out to eat just after getting off set? If that’s the case, maybe her face is made up like this for a role-they can make blemishes that look most realistic. Seeing her hair is shaved, maybe she’s being made to look deliberately unattractive for a part-bad skin to go along with the bad hair. Perhaps she’s playing an inmate or criminal-type part again…remember the part she played in ‘Monster’???!!!

    Christina Says:

    So she is a natural brunette?

    @Coco: Jesus relax, shes like everyone else.

    Roberta Says:

    I think whats she got in her face and neck is something called Melasma. It is also called mask of pregnancy. Im not saying she is pregnant. it can also be triggered by to much sun. And we know CT has had her fair share of that these past months. And I have read somewhere, she has had these kind of problem before.

    For you who are interested, I post a link.

    And no, im not a doctor.

  59. 59

    Well let’s face it: she’s not this raving beauty they make her out to be. On the other hand, she’s a fantastic actress, so who TF cares what she looks like? At this point people should be paying attention to her talent, not her looks…(looks should only be considered when there’s no talent escorting it.)

    Who ever thought Charlize was actually pretty ugly without tons of makeup, lights, and airbrush?

  63. 63
    WhatATool Says:

    Shaving her hair was no big deal most of it was extentions, she has very thin blonde hair

  64. 64
    Zeroh Tollrance Says:

    That isn’t acne, or from a peel. It’s called miasma, and it often happens to women in their 30s and 40s due to hormones. It can also be darkened or made worse with too much sun exposure. Lasering usually removes much of the pigment, but it’s super common. Total normal.

  65. 65
    Ugonna Wosu Says:

    @Monster: she isn’t ugly even now.

  66. 66
    Ugonna Wosu Says:

    @WICKED WENCH: she is still beautiful, with or without hair and with or without makeup. Bad skin doesn’t erase those facial features.
