Charlize Theron Shaves Head

Actress Charlize Theron appeared in public this weekend in her native South Africa this weekend with a brand-new buzz cut, setting the internet on fire.

Apparently, she sheared off her blonde locks in preparation for a role in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” an upcoming reboot of the Mad Max franchise mercifully not starring Mel Gibson. Presumably, in a post-apocalyptic future, female buzz cuts are all the rage. The movie is currently filming in South Africa, set for a 2013 release.

She certainly isn’t the first actress to go buzzed – Natalie Portman famously got a buzz cut onscreen in “V For Vendetta,” and Britney Spears, uh… well, maybe that’s different.

What do you think of Charlize’s new style?
