Charlize Theron’s buzzed hair & skinny jeans: righteous or unflattering?

Don’t even start yelling at me! I KNOW that Charlize Theron shaved her head months ago, just before she flew to Namibia to begin filming Mad Max: Fury Road. We had photos of her then, but for most of her shaved head photo-ops, she wore hats and scarves and stuff. Now that the production is over and Tom Hardy is in England and Charlize is back in LA, she’s still rocking the short, short hair. It’s not quite a buzz, is it? It’s still shorter than I thought it would be, and it’s much darker than I thought it would be. Did Charlize dye it, or is this her natural color?

Anyway… with that face, she can pull off nearly ANY hair look. I kind of like she’s not going with wigs or weaves, and I like that she’s not covering it up anymore. I don’t think Charlize “does” self-conscious. She looks so badass. And how much do you love that Anne Hathaway chopped off her hair for an Oscar campaign (and she hasn’t shut up about it since) while Charlize chopped off her hair for a (cheesy?) action movie reboot?

Can I have a quick word about her outfit in these pics? I WANT THAT COAT. That coat is pretty badass too. But these pants a perfect example of why I say women need to ditch the skinny-jeans trend. Charlize has a crazy figure, she’s tall and she’s got amazing legs and she looks like a model and she can pull off nearly anything. If skinny jeans make HER look stumpy, imagine what they’re doing to you, you know? My point? Stop wearing skinny jeans. They are a conspiracy against women.

I’ve also got to wonder… who is Charlize boning these days? Allegedly, Alex Skarsgard went to visit her for an African booty call while she was working on Mad Max. I wonder if that’s still going? I wonder if she’s got someone new?

Last thing – Charlize recently signed on to a remake of a Korean film. The English-language film is going to be called Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, which… I LOVE that name. I was reading it as “sympathy for lady-vengeance,” meaning that it’s about womanly vengeance. “Lady” as a modifier, like lady biscuits or lady tingles or lady parts or lady malady. But I guess it could also be a formal name too, right? As in, Charlize’s character is named Lady Vengeance. I want to change my name to Vengeance McLadyBiscuit.

    She looks so badass!!! Plus I love her sunglasses, does anyone know who makes them? That’s how you rock short hair, with confidence and not making declarations everywhere *side eye to Anne Hathaway*

  2. Granger says:

    I think this might be her natural colour, because she’s got grey hair. If she’d darkened it, there’d be no grey. She looks awesome.

  3. HouseOfBeatrix says:

    So damn fine!!
    Ai ken haz secks wid hurr?

  4. Nessa says:

    My forever girl crush. Of course she looks badass and amazing. She is Charlize Theron, bitches!

  5. David99 says:

    Hard for to her look anything but Awesome

  6. Rhea says:

    If it’s me I would prefer a darker jeans color but hey, she still looks good anyway!

  7. marie says:

    she is badass, love the coat too but those look like high-water skinny jeans.

  8. callie says:

    Righteous. Charlize can do no wrong. She is a Goddess. Even in Young Adult she manages to rock it. LOVE HER. This might just be because of Arrested Development, but I want to be her BFF and bask in her unearthly beauty forever.

  9. Len says:

    Her neck ks really wide. Or her head is small. Its all i notice when i look at her.

  10. cw says:

    every time i look at her, i just can’t forget that terrible acting job she did on Arrested Development

    the worst acting i’ve even seen, except 13 going on 30 jennifer G.


  11. Jen says:

    So, are we suppose to continue wearing bootcut jeans or switch to straight leg? Seriously, I need help!

  12. Rita says:

    I hate this look. It looks like a young gay Brad Pitt.

  13. Shelly says:

    This woman would look good no matter what. I mean, obviously, I prefer her with longer blonde hair, but she is so beautiful she can literally wear anything.

  14. Launicaangelina says:

    Fierce bitch! I love it. She is so bad ass. I love that she’s not hiding that spot of grey in her hair either.

  15. Gabby says:

    I need that jacket now! Any thoughts in brand people?

  16. toto says:

    she looks much better than her picture with her mother ..i thought she burned her face.
    cool girl

  17. RavenClaw says:

    How about you not worry about the jeans the rest of us wear? Just like your bangs trauma nonsense, there are people who look good with bangs or skinny jeans. To each their own.

    • ella says:

      Totally agree.

      Charlize does not look stumpy, she looks amazing. Anyone looking at Charlize Theron and thinking “stumpy” has an attitude problem.

      I’m not the skinniest girl and I feel like wearing wide legged jeans only makes me look wider because they hide my calves and ankles, which are the only slim parts of my lower body.

  18. lizbet says:

    Wow, she is absolutely pulling it off. I always thought she would look amazing no matter what, and this proves it.

  19. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    It’s that the pants are cropped. Cropped pants and capris make everyone look stumpy and dumpy (and soccer momish).

    Just say no, ladies.

  20. uglypretty says:

    Why can’t Hollywood leave foreign films alone? The Vengeance trilogy is amazing, and even though Charlize is a good actress there’s just no need for all these remakes of modern films! Does no one write new material anymore?

    Her hair does look amazing though.

    • Dana says:

      In one word: NO. Have you seen all the original crap they pull, aside from reboots or sequels… Of course they have to go around adapting stuff… messing it up in 10/10… Aside from that, Hollywood is such an inspirational place – exit sarcasm. Even when they go the deep road, it’s still comes out as shallow. Sure they make pretty movies but gosh, they’re all so godawful politically correct, ignorant and insulting. Give or take the odd one out. So yeah, why not remake all the critically acclaimed foreign movies out there by dumbing them down to the lowest possible common denominator? American cinema of today is a reflection of a culture that’s hit a crisis point and you can like or not, even ignore it or deny it but it’s relevant from a societal view.

    • LAK says:

      Too late for trilogy regret. OLD BOY remake is already wrapped. It’s directed by Spike Lee and starring Josh Brolin. I haven’t watched a Spike Lee film in a long time so I have no idea whether he is good anymore. I was pissed at INFERNAL AFFAIRS remake but Marty Scorsese did a good job. Let’s hope Spike does the same. Ditto whoever is going to direct LADY VENGENCE and the 3rd one.

      Ps:- for your amusement, there is actually a bollywood remake of OLD BOY. Came out 2005/6ish. Can’t remember the name but it stars Sanjay Dutt.

      It really annoys me when they remake these great foreign films, all because middle america won’t read subtitles or can’t process ideas that aren’t rooted in americana.

    • MerryHappy says:

      Exactly! Sympathy for lady vengeance, oldboy, mr vengeance… They’re perfect! Step off, Hollywood. She is no Guem-Ja.

  21. sunnyinseattle says:

    Didn’t she adopt a baby? How come we never see her with him since she first brought him home? Am I missing something?

  22. Alyce says:

    I’m not normally a fan of super short hair, but Charlize is rocking this hard.

  23. The Original Denise says:

    The hair is so short that it is obvious that that is her natural hair color. Which is fine. The rest of the post is rambling, self indulgent nonsense.

  24. Becks says:

    I don’t get all this fuss over her. I think she looks so much better with hair! Her neck is too thick for this haircut, she looks like a man!

  25. decorative item says:

    From the waist up she is magnificent! But, the pants have to go. It’s like fabulous bad ass meets the gap.

  26. Tina says:

    So gorgeous, totally rocking that buzz cut. I really like her casual style too, she’s always well put together. She’s probably my favorite hollywood actress, and I love that she keeps her private life private.

  27. Sara says:

    Is this her real hair color? i always thought she was a natural blond. Not as blond as it was, but never could have imagined it being this mousy grey color.

  28. Guest says:

    I do not see what the fuss is about. Moving along.

  29. Sean says:

    I think we have proven that Charlise is gorgeous under any circumstances.

  30. Sway says:

    Actually these jeans look great on her!

  31. She has that gift looks good in anything // short or long hair it goes with her face // $1.dollar or $1 million dollar outfit always looks beautiful on her.

  32. A Fan says:

    I would take this look over dyed blonde extensions any day – talk about boring.

  33. jasmine says:

    mad max is hardly a cheezy action movie

  34. goodquestion says:

    She’s probably keeping the cut for reshoots, which happen for all films, but especially those with big budgets and special effects.

  35. valleymiss says:

    Charlize kinda looks like a badass. I dig it!

  36. Reece says:

    I love this…So much! Gorgeous!

  37. Jaxx says:

    Now she is the exact opposite to Anne Hathaway. Cutting Anne’s hair off assassinated any claim she had to beauty. For Charlize? It just CONFIRMS and highlights her gorgeousness. Wow! What a stunner.

  38. xoxokaligrl says:

    That is a hot mess.

  39. Beatriz says:

    Sigh. You know a woman is truly beautiful when she can pull off ANY hair-cut.

  40. Phil E Stein says:

    All that talent and beauty and she still can’t find “the one”. What hope is there for the rest of us mere mortals?

    • LAK says:

      or she won’t settle.

      Let’s face it, many people for various reasons settle.

      and then go crying to separation/divorce court or are bitterly holding on because it isn’t the done thing to remain single or other factors trap them into their relationships and they are simply making the best of it.

  41. Turd Fergussen says:

    Love her. This woman can do no wrong.

  42. khaveman says:

    I like her and I like the shades, but I don’ t the hair at all. Too butch.

  43. steel4kay says:

    She looks amazing! Flawless, head to toe.

  44. Alison says:

    there are just a few people who actually look more beautfil with short hair. Charlize is one of them. With long hair, she looks like a wallflower. She needs a short do…no longer than a chin-length bob. Absolutely stunning! (Though I would color her hair if I were her. Dark OR blonde – just not grey. Not yet, at least)

  45. truthful says:

    I like Anne’s hair better, her pixie cut rocks.

    Charlize seems full of herself and I question her motives for adopting a lil boy.

    She fits the blind about the celeb that wanted to looked at as softer and approachable. She adopted a kid and now does not spend that much time raising said kid.

    because it did nothing for her image and she is not motherly.

  46. Chrissy says:

    I don’t really like this kind of hair on women, but if anyone can make it look decent, it’s her. It doesn’t look bad here, just not my cup of tea.

  47. JuneBug says:

    Charlize can do no wrong…ever.

  48. Rocky says:

    “Allegedly,Alex Skarsgard went to visit her for an African booty call”

    I read somewhere that Alex also was sighted in Johannesburg South Africa in early november. If that sighting was true, was he there for Charlize or just sightseeing? Hmmm…time will tell I guess.

  49. lady X says:

    I think the short hair looks horrid … I mean are we looking at the same pictures … She is a gorgeous woman … but the hair style takes away from that in my opinion … sorry ,,,, not crazy about the hair or outfit … I hope she grows it back fast

  50. mk yarwood says:

    She looks amazing. ‘Specially the grey part.

  51. Trillian says:

    She can pull off the hair. The pants … not so much. I don’t mind the skinny cut, but they are too short. I am traumatized that way, being a skinny tall girl with long legs. Growing up I could NEVER find a pair of pants that would fit and still be long enough. I really hate that “pants above the ankles” look.

  52. Stephanie says:

    “Vengeance McLadyBiscuit” LMAO!

  53. Maritza says:

    She has such a pretty face and statuesque body that she looks beautiful anyway.

  54. Marian says:

    Charlize rocks! She almost always looks badass and smouldering cool to me. I like the way she carries herself

  55. Darth says:

    Yes! I’ve wanted her to keep her hair dark ever since The Devil’s Advocate, it really does something for her that the blonde doesn’t. And the buzz cut looks much better on her than you’d expect. She looks like a fierce model again :)

  56. Mila says:

    I really admire her on many different levels:D
    She is wonderful human being.

  57. Diana says:

    Badass is the word my friend, badass, indeed.

  58. mimi says:

    Look at her face Seriously you know a chick is pretty when she can rock short grey sslt and pepper hair and still look amazing.

    Glad you finally post something positive about Charlize kaiser. Changing your tune? Good because she is badass. But stumpy? Never.

  59. Mara says:

    She is really beautiful but this hair color and the cut is really ugly ,she looks much better with long hair.

  60. jenny piccolo says:

    She always looks snobby and I don’t get a good vibe from her. I think that’s why I don’t much care for her as an actress. She was good in Monster though.

  61. darkladi says:

    Charlize Theron shaves her head & looks like that?!

    Life is unfair.

  62. ILLNana says:

    I am not gay but I would so hit it. HARD!

  63. Amilu says:

    The original Sympathy for Lady Vengeance was great. I HATE that Hollywood feels the need to re-make and Americanize good foreign films.

  64. Shane says:

    Hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell. The grey flecks makes her look even sexier. More mature and interesting than the young blonde who appeared on our screens about 15 years ago.
