It’s no secret that I adore Charlize Theron. Sure, I didn’t l-o-v-e Snow White and the Huntsman, but I watch the final courtroom scene from North Country whenever it’s on TV. That has to count for something. This devotion to the star is why I was a little taken aback this morning when I saw that my personal Regina George shaved her head like it was no big deal.
Perhaps this is something she could have spoken to me about first before just grabbing the razor and going all Britney Spears up here on this fine Tuesday morning. But alas, Charlize answers to no one. I suppose looking back, she’s always lived by the “hair today, gone tomorrow” rules of life.
And of course, being that she’s Charlize Theron and the fact she’s the most strikingly beautiful woman west of the Mississippi (that’s still a measurement of distance right?), she pulls off her shaved head with glory and grace. As if she never even had hair to begin with.
While you’re probably speedreading this article looking for keywords like mental breakdown, exhaustion, dehydration and deviated septum, you won’t find them here. Charlize didn’t do this as part of a celebrity “look-at-me” temper tantrum. As we all know, that’s not her style.
Nope she pulled this stunt for her role as Furiosa in Mad Mad 4: Fury Road with Tom Hardy. I guess Max gets mad when people have hair. Hence why she shaved it. And sent all her locks to his weekend home on Fury Road in the Hamptons. While his anger problems do get the best of him, he throws the most wonderful white parties on memorial day.
Want an invite to Mad Max’s infamous summer soirees? Well, go grab your razor and pull a Charlize Theron. All the beautiful people are doing it and you don’t want to be left out.
