Charlize’s close shave

Wednesday, 13 June 2012

Yesterday, blonde beauty Charlize Theron was spotted with a new hairstyle. A shaved head! She hid the closely shaved back and sides pretty well under her fedora, but the gossip blogs were all a twitter with the news that the 36-year-old actress had made the chop for a new role in Mad Max 4.

‘It’s been three years. It’s time to skin this cat already!’ Theron was quoted as saying last month in Grazia’s UK magazine. ‘I’m very excited about it.’

What do you think of the crop? (Sign into Beauty Addicts and share your comments below.)

That got a few of the ladies in the office thinking. Well, ok, just me then! Would you shave your head if your boss asked you to? Essentially that’s what Charlize has done. Granted she’s getting paid thousands (possibly millions) of dollars to do her job, but would you? Or would need to be paid bucket loads as well?

    Don’t think I’d go to this extreme. My hair takes forever to grow!

    Would I do it? depends on how many millions I was being paid to do it. I’m sure Charlene is going to be well compensated.

    She looks beautiful! It really accentuates her face and shows that she really is a natural beauty.

    There are a very few select woman that can be beautiful and bald! She is one of them…. if I got paid $15, 000, 000 for like 3 months work, I would definitely shave my head!

    Holy moly!! But Charlize kinda does pull it off. Wish she would’ve taken off her hat though.
