on Monday was spotted wearing a grey hat that could not hide her shaved head entirely as she walked carrying her six-month-old son, Jackson, in Beverley Hills, California. Rep for the stunning 36-year-old actress has told US Weekly that Theron's new look is for her role in "Mad Max: Fury Road".
Theron had been selected for the role in 2009, but due to certain production setbacks, the film was shelved.
While she was on the promotional tour of "Huntsman", Theron, who stars as Furiosa opposite, who plays Mad Max, revealed to MTV that the delayed project was to begin filming on June 2.
"We've had a lot of time to talk about it and we had some rehearsal time when we were going to [shoot the movie]," Theron also said to MTV. "I think it's been good. I think you have to find the positive about something like this, waiting that long to do a film."
The Oscar-winning actress also sounded excited about her new looks when she said, “It’s been three years: It's time to skin this cat already!" talking to US Magazine while promoting her film “Prometheus” in London on May 30. "I'm very excited about it."
Director George Miller’s "Mad Max: Fury Road" will be the fourth film in the Mad Max franchise with the first one releasing in 1979. If this one turns out well, Miller has said that two more will be following soon. "We started with ['Fury Road'], but we then started to do a second story and a third," Miller said. "We've written the script for the second and almost finished the third. We never intended to, they were part of the exploration of the characters."
Theron said she felt lucky to be a part of the franchise because it made her “creatively satisfied.” "The original ‘Mad Max’ created such a vivid world, so to go back and re-imagine it and re-play in that sandbox sounds like fun to me," Theron said to Us Magazine. "It’s a really challenging piece of material."
This year is sure proving to be a lucky one for Theron, whose latest movies, "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Prometheus" made a total of $73 million domestically this weekend.
