Shortly after Britney Spears became a mom (for the second time, if memory serves), she went and shaved her head. And now look at Charlize (scroll down for a close-up) — her shaved head gracefully hidden under a fedora, as she whispers to 8-month old Jackson at the LAX airport, on their way out of LA.

Of course, the beautiful 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress wasn’t pulling “a Britney,” though. As we know, Charlize takes her roles very seriously. She’s transformed drastically in the past, and this time it’s no different. The shaved head’s for her role in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

Gosh, we saw her wearing a fedora just last month, and honestly, I was wondering where all her hair was under there.

“It’s been three years,” Charlize said of her new ‘do. “It’s time to skin this cat already! I’m very excited about it.”
