Talk about dedication! Actress Charlize Theron, who underwent a serious makeunder for her Oscar-winning role as a serial killer in 2003's "Monster," was photographed with the newly shorn look she got for her upcoming film, "Mad Max: Fury Road." In the new pic, Theron, 36, sports a buzz cut on the post-apocalyptic movie's set in Namibia while cuddling Jackson, the adorable little boy she adopted earlier this year. Unlike "Monster," which required the actress to gain 30 pounds and wear fake crooked teeth, Theron's "Mad Max" transformation didn't require major body changes. Reportedly, however, her character will be missing part of her arm. A stunt double will help out with scenes where the body part is visible.
While the pic's somewhat blurry, it's clear Theron's fab facial features allow her to pull off the look. But what do you expect from someone who became a model at 16? Theron's not the only gorgeous leading lady who has had to get a close cut for a role. Demi Moore shaved her head for 1997's "G.I. Jane" and Natalie Portman followed suit for 2005's "V for Vendetta."
What do you think of Theron's new look?
