Charlize Theron Shaves Her Head for 'Mad Max'

Charlize Theron Hair ShavedAKM-GSI

It almost seems like a mystery: Charlize Theron was photographed walking into a salon on June 6, and hasn’t been seen without a hat since. She wore a beanie to the gym over the weekend (a bit warm for summertime in L.A., no?) and stepped out with son Jackson on Monday, wearing a chic fedora (above).

But if you look closely, you can solve the puzzle: the actress’s long blonde locks are gone.

A rep for Theron confirms to PEOPLE that she shaved her head last week for her role as Furiosa in the upcoming movie Mad Max: Fury Road. The action film, which costars Tom Hardy, starts shooting next month in Africa.

Theron follows in the footsteps of Anne Hathaway, who recently chopped her hair for Les Misérables

Though Theron’s done a good job of covering up her cut so far — she had us fooled! — she’ll have to reveal that head sometime. And we’ll definitely be interested to see just how gorgeous she looks.

She probably did it for a role, for her next movie. Or maybe she just wanted to take a break from taking care of/doing her hair. Or maybe because the weather is too hot. (I might do the same if it gets hotter in Europe. It’s boiling.)

She’s definitely got the face for it…

Well on

It ages her.

Melissa on

She still looks stunning.

It’s just hair, it will grow back. Besides, imagine the freedom of not having to look after it.

Pat richardson on

She is such a natural beauty. And if looking like her is old…I’ll take it!

cynlee on

It’s for a role. With a face like that, she can do almost anything; she’s stunning!

Cristina on

She should keep it that way. She’s stunning

M on

It’s for the new Mad Max movie. And you know what… F-U, Charlize! F-U for being so f-ing incredibly beautiful that you can pull off a shaved dome. Ugh… you SICKEN me. ;)
