Charlize Theron chops it all off…and a look back at some more famous hairless leading ladies

So this weekend news starting circulating that Charlize Theron had made the chop. Well, she didn’t just make the chop! Apparently, she’s shaved her entire head. This has yet to be confirmed and the pictures we’re seeing so far seem to suggest she went for a buzz rather than a Mr. Clean top (pictures are of her in a hat so no way to tell exactly how short she has gone…although we do still see hair). While I know we are all waiting for the big reveal, we thought we’d take you on a trip of serious stars that have walked down the razor path prior to Charlize Theron. 

Perhaps the most famous shaved head of the past decade would be Ms. Britney Spears. Sadly her shaved session is said to be due more to a nervous breakdown and less with a new look or a role in a film. We could be wrong. Perhaps Britney was lined up to play the next G.I. Jane? Speaking of which, another famous shaved head of course belongs to Demi Moore who showed off her glorious globe for the blockbuster film. There was no makeup needed for that hair transformation. She really got into character and surprised the whole world when she came out looking just as hot without hair as she did with! Could it be that Demi took inspiration from Sigourney Weaver after seeing how amazing the actress looked for her role in Alien?

Perhaps Charlize Theron was inspired by Anne Hathaway’s new crop top that she has taken on for her role in Les Mis? We spotted Hathaway out in Notting Hill a few weeks ago looking mighty fine in her new do and rocking it with a great deal of confidence (although not seen in the picture above as she’s in character for the movie)!

Other famous faces with little to no hair transformations have included Amber Rose, Natalie Portman, Cynthia Nixon, Willow Smith, Agy Deyn and Mena Suvari.

We’re interested to know what you think… would you make the change and what would prompt you to do so? Do share…
