Charlize Theron may play a queen in Snow White and the Huntsman, but the gorgeous actress, 36, has shaved off her luscious locks for another role. She was spotted with the new ‘do, which is reportedly for her upcoming part in a remake of Mad Max, which starts shooting next month in Africa.

Meanwhile across the pond, Avril Lavigne shocked onlookers when she debuted her new, edgy ‘do. X17 Online posted the first pics of the Canadian singer, 27, who shaved one side of her head and rocked the punk princess style.

Theron and Lavigne aren’t the only stars to don the buzzed look. Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon ditched her fiery locks to land the lead role in Broadway’s Wit while other celebrities, such as Britney Spears, have shaved their heads for no apparent reason.

Theron follows in the footsteps of Anne Hathaway, who recently chopped her hair for Les Misérables. Anne is playing Fantine, who is not only starving but cuts all her hair off in an attempt to trade for food. Les Miserables hits theaters on December 14.
