7 female stars who proudly shaved their heads for roles
From Natalie Portman to Charlize Theron, these actresses aren't afraid to shed their locks in the name of good storytelling.
Like other actresses who have taken the leap, South African actress Charlize Theron described her decision to shave her head for "Mad Max: Fury Road" as freeing.
"It's the most freeing thing, I highly recommend it," she said on the Oscars red carpet. "I think every woman should do it."
Theron says that cutting off her locks also came with another unexpected benefit: more time.
"I was 20 minutes early to everything in my life," she quipped. "It was unbelievable, like how much time we spend on our hair. I think I emptied two garbage bags full of hair products and brushes. There's something very freeing in that, for sure, definitely."
