Charlize Theron Embraces Bold Hair Do
Charlize Theron Embraces Bold Hair Do

She’s kept her new haircut hidden under an array of hats in recent weeks, but it seems that Prometheus star Charlize Theron has finally decided to ditch the head wear and embrace her shaved look.

The South African actress was spotted in Namibia this week with her adopted son Jackson, revealing her dramatic buzz cut in all it’s glory for the first time.

The 36-year-old and her little boy wore co-ordinated red tops as they were spotted in the city.

Charlize chopped of her trademark long blonde locks earlier this month to play Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the post apocalyptic series.

She will feature opposite Tom Hardy, who fills the role made famous by Mel Gibson, and she said she cannot wait for the cameras to roll.

The star said: ‘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!’

The star continued: ‘I’m very excited about it; I’m dying! It’s been three years; it’s time to skin this cat already!’

Also reported to be starring in the movie is Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Rosie’s new role has not been identified beyond Deadline’s report that she will be playing one of the movie’s “five featured wife characters.”

After Megan Fox was dropped from the Transformers series for likening director Michael Bay to Hitler, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was added to the cast of Dark of the Moon as the new love interest for Shia LaBeouf's hero character.

And evidently, that was the only stepping stone the stunning Victoria Secret’s model needed to propel her into the world of acting, as Jason Statham’s lady has now landed herself a role in the forthcoming reboot of a sci-fi classic: Mad Max: Fury Road.

Rosie’s new role has not been identified beyond Deadline’s report that she will be playing one of the movie’s “five featured wife characters.” She is starring alongside recent Hollywood breakout Tom Hardy, who is handling the title role - originated by Mel Gibson - and Charlize Theron.

The model looks to be solidifying a career in big budget franchises, and with Hollywood churning out sci-fi blockbusters of the like by the minute, Rosie has a prosperous onscreen future ahead of her.

Rosie’s soon to be co-star, Charlize Theron, has been getting into character by shaving off her long blonde hair. A rep for Charlize recently confirmed to People magazine that she shaved her head last week for her role as Furiosa in the upcoming movie. The action film starts shooting next month in Africa.

Charlize has done a good job of covering up her newly shaved head so far, but no doubt when we do get a peak at her new ‘do, she’ll still look as gorgeous as ever.

Prometheus actress Charlize Theron was photographed walking into a Los Angeles hair salon on June 6, and hasn’t been seen without a hat since.

She wore a beanie to the gym over the weekend, which is suspicious in itself due to the LA heat at this time of year. Charlize later stepped out with son Jackson on Monday, wearing a chic fedora.

But if you look closely, you can solve the puzzle: the actress’s gorgeous long blonde locks are gone.

A rep for Charlize confirmed to People magazine that she shaved her head last week for her role as Furiosa in the upcoming movie Mad Max: Fury Road. The action film, which costars Tom Hardy, starts shooting next month in Africa.

Charlize recently revealed that all of her Snow White and the Huntsman co-stars became very close on set. She told BANG Showbiz: ”We all made out with each other at some stage in the movie because when Sam’s character kisses Snow White it’s actually me in disguise.”

Kristen Stewart Can’t Stop Gushing About Charlize Theron

Kristen Stewart has been full of compliments for her co-star Charlize Theron as of late.

Kristen says when Charlize Theron walks into a room “everyone knows it.” The Twilight star co-stars with Oscar winning Charlize in Snow White and the Huntsman, and they seem to have developed a strong friendship.

In a chat with Interview magazine, Kristen says that Charlize has real presence: “She is unlike anyone I’ve ever encountered,” Kristen gushed. “She is one of those people who walks into a room and everyone knows it.”

“She’s a f***ing movie star. It’s funny too because she always says, ‘I’m not really a performer.’ But I’m like, ‘Yeah, not at all.’ [laughs] She’s an actor and a performer.”

The feeling appears to be very much a mutual one as Charlize has also spoke fondly of her time working with Kristen.

“I love that girl, like, I would jump off a building for that girl,” Charlize told Access Hollywood. “She’s the real deal and she gives really good back rubs. She’s got a tremendous amount of talent.”

Kristen added that they get on so well because they are “both absolutely willing to hurt ourselves to do what it takes to get the right feeling, and not all actors are like that.”

Charlize Theron: ‘Everyone made out with everyone on Snow White set’
Charlize Theron: ‘Everyone made out with everyone on Snow White set’

Charlize Theron has revealed that everyone on the set of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ ”made out” with each other at some stage, and joked that she sneaked a kiss from Sam Claflin when she pretended to be the titular character as the actor had to kiss her in the movie.

The Hollywood actress, who portrays Queen Ravenna in the fantasy movie alongside Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin, joked that she sneaked a smooch from Sam because she pretended to be Snow White when he had to kiss her in the movie.

She told BANG Showbiz: ”We all made out with each other at some stage in the movie because when Sam’s character kisses Snow White it’s actually me in disguise.”

Sam found it a ”dream come true” to be cast in the movie - which sees Snow White attempt to kill her wicked stepmother (Charlize) - because he used to spend hours pretending to be a sword-welding knight when he was a child.

Sam revealed: ”It was somewhat of a dream come true. Growing up I ran around a school playground pretending I was Robin Hood or one of the knights of the round table so getting the chance to wield a sword and smash a few stuntmen was a privilege.”

Charlize Theron Discusses Prometheus Co-Star Michael Fassbender’s Manhood

South-African born actress Charlize Theron spills the beans to Mtv on ‘Prometheus’ co-star Michael Fassbender's manhood.

Michael revealed all in the production of 2011 film ‘Shame’, which prompted MTV to ask Charlize just how much of his masculinity would be on show in the new Ridley Scott sci-fi thriller ‘Prometheus’. Charlize cheekily replied with a totally serious expression, ‘Oh my god. I don’t think [his pen*s] was available. It was shooting the sequel for ‘Shame’ so we couldn’t get it for ‘Prometheus.”

She continued to personify her co-star’s manhood throughout the hilarious interview. ‘It’s a hitch pen*s’, she explained with a laugh. ‘The pen*s attaches and works separately; it’s a whole working entity.’ She confessed that she would’ve liked to have seen it had it not been busy all the time with work and such.

This is not the first time the shameless ‘Monster’ actress has made jokes regarding Michael’s film flashing. Earlier in the year she was presented with the Ally for Equity award from The Human Rights Campaign by Mr. Fassbender and proceeded to talk about his ‘Shame’ appearance in her speech, joking that she was impressed that he chose to ‘play it big’ and that she was ‘available to work with it any time’.

As the evil Queen Ravenna, Charlize Theron envies her young rival’s beauty in new movie Snow White and the Hunstman, but the beautiful actress had no need to feel jealous of Kristen Stewart as the pair walked the red carpet at the highly-anticipated film’s world premiere.

The actresses both chose smouldering gothic glamour looks in sheer black gowns as London’s Leicester Square was transformed into a fairytale enchanted forest for the event. Kristen, 22, wore a black lace gown from Marchesa’s Fall 2012 collection with her hair swept up in a bun. In trademark fashion, Kristen arrived at the event in her favourite pair of Converse, before quickly switching into heels behind a bush before facing the fans and cameras.

Charlize, 36, looked gorgeous in her Christian Dior Couture creation. The sheer tulle design also put the stunning star’s legs on display as she worked the red carpet.

Kristen and Charlize greeted each other with a big hug, and later posed for pictures with Chris Hemsworth, who plays The Hunstman in the big budget film. Avenges star Chris became a father this week when his wife Elsa Pataky gave birth to their baby girl, India, on Friday.

The actor looked surprisingly well rested despite juggling caring for his wife and newborn daughter, who was born in a London hospital, and promotional duties for the film this week.

Snow White and the Huntsman actress Charlize Theron shocked quite a few people earlier this year, when she revealed that she had adopted a baby boy called Jackson. Now, Charlize has been discussing her new baby, admitting that she hopes to raise him in a similar way to how she was raised by her mother.

Theron explained to Vogue, “I’ve always been very honest in saying I wanted a family. I’ve always known I wanted a family. I don’t think my mom could wait any more! Jackson is incredible, the greatest gift. He is the coolest kid ever.”
 
She added, “I hope to be like my mom, fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.”

Florence and the Machine singer, Florence Welch has revealed to MTV News, that the Charlize Theron character, Queen Revenna was the inspiration behind her song for the Snow White and the Huntsman soundtrack.

Welch explained, “The Queen is just this incredible character; so hungry for life but so dead inside. She’s sort of eternal, but inside there’s nothing. She’s kind of like charcoal or something. [There are] these amazing scenes where she’s kind of picking out birds’ hearts and eating them. [She has] this thirst for youth and for life, but for what kind of life? This darkness, but she’s so beautiful, so it’s this kind of juxtaposition between beauty and, ultimately, death.”
 
She added, “We went in and demoed the track, these big, clattering drums, huge bass sounds and everything was very intense… and then we sent that to the guys in LA who composed it. And it was amazing to see the music we played being turned into this amazing orchestral thing.”
 
Florence continued, “You feel in a bit of a way like you’re kind of making it up as you go along, and then when you see it done, laid out before you in such a beautiful, orchestral fashion, it’s really incredible… I love choirs and I love choral music, and there was a 60-piece choir singing the vocal parts that I had written. When the baritones came in, I nearly wept, it was so emotional.”
 
Snow White and the Huntsman is set to be released in both the US and the UK on June 1.

Rupert Sanders praises Charlize Theron for Snow White and the Huntsman performance

Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, has praised Charlize Theron for her performance as Queen Ravenna in his Snow White adaptation. Rupert admitted that many of the ideas that Charlize had for the character were perfect for making her more believable.

Sanders explained, “I think what we really tried to do is make her a realistic character. It’s a hard character to play because everyone has their perception of what the evil queen is and what the villain should do, but I think what was great about what Charlize wanted to do, is she wanted to find a very believable, very realistic, very wounded character.”
 
He added, “People who are wounded are much more dangerous. You look at nature, people who are protecting their young, or an animal that is wounded is far more vicious and violent than something that is just strong. And I think that she found this incredible pain within herself that made the brutality of what she was doing far more resonant.”
 
Snow White and the Huntsman sees Twilight actress Kristen Stewart playing the famous fairytale character, while Chris Hemsworth is playing the huntsman from the title. Charlize Theron rounds things off as the Evil Queen Ravenna, with Rupert Sanders on directing duty.
 
Snow White and the Huntsman is released on June 1 in both the US and the UK.

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is set to appear alongside Kristen Stewart later this year, in the Rupert Sanders big screen adaptation of the classic Snow White tale, titled Snow White and the Huntsman. Chris has been talking a little about the movie and has been praising Kristen Stewart in particular for her performance as Snow White.

Hemsworth explained, “She was great. She had a very strong opinion of where she wants to take this character and a real sense of justice. She needed to start off innocent and naive, but get to the point where she’s a hardened warrior and will no longer bow down to the pressure of the Evil Queen.”
 
Kristen Stewart recently admitted that she had to overcome a number of her fears during the filming of Snow White and the Huntsman, including horse riding. You can catch Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart, starring alongside Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, in Snow White and the Huntsman, which is set to be released on June 1 in both the US and the UK.
