Charlize Theron Shaves Her Head for Mad Max: Fury Road
June 11, 2012
With the much anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road finally gearing up to shoot in Africa next month, leading lady Charlize Theron has been spotted in Los Angeles showing off her commitment to the project. The Prometheus and Snow White and the Huntsman star has shaved her head for the George Miller film.
Also starring Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Adelaide Clemens and Riley Keough, Mad Max: Fury Road is the first of two films that will be shot back to back, rebooting the post-apocalyptic world depicted in Miller's original Mad Max, The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
"I'm f--ing dying, too," Theron recently said about getting to finally play the role. "It's been three years. It's time to skin this cat already... I feel like the original 'Mad Max' created such a vivid world, that to go back and re-imagine it and kind of replay in that sandbox sounds like fun to me. George really created a female character that I've never read anything like this. I mean, I'm scared sh--less."
It's hard to tell at this point how extreme Theron's final look will be for the film, but it's definitely exciting to see that the long-awaited project is finally moving forward. Check back for details as they become available.
