Charlize Theron’s hair is slightly longer & lightened: still fierce & righteous?

Charlize Theron’s hair is growing out in a really adorable way, right? The last time we checked in on her, it was mid-December and her hair was really dark and buzzed/stubbly. Charlize is/was one of the few women who can rock a buzz cut and make it look fashion-forward and righteous, in my opinion, but now that her hair is growing out a little bit… I like this look even more. She lightened it too, right? I think she did, although she hasn’t gone back to blonde. I think I can make out some itty-bitty baby roots, so I feel confident in saying she’s lightened it recently.

Really, though, I just felt guilty for not liking Robin Wright’s super-short pixie cut yesterday, so I’m trying to make up for it with this post. I’m not a full-on short-hair hater! You just have to have the face for it. Charlize has the face (and attitude) for it. Robin doesn’t have the face for it. And, dare I say, Emma Watson didn’t have the face for it either – at least not her initial pixie cut, although it looked a lot cuter when she grew it out to a shaggy, choppy faux-pixie. Meanwhile, my hair is only a few inches away from waist-length. Sigh… I need to get it cut.

In other Charlize news, The Hollywood Reporter announced earlier this week that she’s “in final negotiations” to star opposite Seth MacFarlane in his second film as writer/producer/director. Seth had a huge hit with Ted, which I finally got to see over the holidays – I totally loved it too. It made me secretly love Seth, and the success of the film probably won over MANY Hollywood people. Seth’s second film is a western-spoof in the vein of Blazing Saddles which he’s calling A Million Ways to Die in the West. I’m assuming Seth will just be Seth in the film, not a talking CGI teddy bear. The plot line involves:

A Million Ways, which MacFarlane is starring in, directing and co-writing, is a Blazing Saddles-style comedy that follows a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him.

When he meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who offers to teach him how to shoot, the farmer at first sees a chance to win back his love but slowly falls for the woman. Complications ensue when the outlaw returns and reclaims his woman.

[From THR]

I’m assuming Charlize would play the wife of a notorious outlaw and not the wife of the sheepish farmer, correct? And the way it’s described… I see Charlize playing the straight man to Seth’s ribald/low-brow comedic role. So help me God, it actually sounds like a half-decent project. And I bet Charlize and Seth will probably like each other a lot.

  2. Smaug says:

    OMG…she looks uh-mazing! I want that hair now (and that bone structure)!!!

  3. Missy says:

    She doesn’t pull this look off at all, she just looks butch.

  4. Prettytarheelfan says:

    Good luck Kaiser! I just chopped almost a foot of my hair off and I am not quite used to it yet. I had to finally get a little more professional. It was depressing.

  5. yellowlala says:

    She looks georg no matter what., her face is divine

  6. Ashling says:

    I love the styling of her hair. It makes her look younger…not that she looked old before!

  7. mystified says:

    Looking a lot like Brigitte Nielson. Does the world need more than one of those? Don’t care for the butch-with-boobs look, but it looks like I’m in the minority.

  8. T.C. says:

    It looks fierce. Love how she just owns it. Any hair cut will work for that gorgeous face. So jealous!

  9. RN says:

    She still looks fierce and I want that t shirt.

  10. Erandyn says:

    I mistook her for Justin Bieber.

  11. Betty says:

    she looks and is great – esp. compared to Ann Hathaway

  12. tripmom says:

    She seems way too intelligent to be amused by a lowbrow cretin like Seth MacFarlane, in my opinion.

  13. Darlene says:

    hot hot hot hot a thousand times hot

  14. elkiddo says:

    Uh girl, you look like justin bieber

  15. bea says:

    CT has the right the neck for super short hair. Looks great. Didn’t she buzz is for Road Warrior…..?

    Robin Wright’s hair is just too short in the front. Her jaw line is great and she looks good with short hair, but if she had some length up there she could make it more interesting/balance things out.

  16. judyjudy says:

    I love her top.

    Her face is crazy gorgeous.

  17. taxi says:

    Love her & want that leather jacket.

  18. FassDaActor says:

    I’m not tryig to be mean. At first glance, I thought the 1st picture was Justin Bieber. She really look great with short hair.

  19. rtms says:

    This explains why they were seen together about a month back. Clearly they were discussing this role for her. As for the hair, she’s totally rocking it. It looks like she lightened it up on top. I just hope she doesn’t go the frosted look.

  20. HappyJoyJoy says:

    She looks like a hot lesbian.

  21. Reece says:

    I like the hair, the bag, the jacket, the shirt! It is very difficult to make her look bad.

  22. Sarah says:

    I have never commented before, but this is super important: HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD DID YOU LIKE TED?! I’m pretty sure it was the worst movie I’ve seen in a decade.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      Are you from outside the greater Boston area? It seems to have really hit a chord with the locals, I know that.

      • Sarah says:

        I was born in Boston and grew up in New Jersey. I’m not super-PC or anything, but the movie just seemed so “off” to me somehow–the tone, the timing. All of the offensive jokes that work well in “Family Guy” (e.g., about a rape happening because the victim was “asking for it”) seem, at least sometimes, edgy and subversive and political coming from a cartoon, but really tasteless and too-easy coming from Mark Wahlberg and a live-action talking bear. It was just so, so dumb in a not-funny way. IMO.

  23. DeltaJuliet says:

    I’m not a short hair hater either. But I don’t like this on her, or Robin’s either. I do however, like Anne’s hair and I liked Ema’s short. To each his own, I guess :)

  24. Kim says:

    To be fair, if you think you need a face like Charlize for short hair, you’re a full-on short hair hater.

  25. ruby says:

    Nope, it doesn’t look good anymore. Darker hair was very interesting on her, it’s a pity she’s lightened it already.

  26. Ruffian9 says:

    I LOVE this, fierce and gorgeous! If I had a better face, I’d do it in a second. Hell, maybe one day I will.

  27. Kosmos says:

    Not that many who could rock this haircut, but she does!!

  28. Sorcha says:

    I think it’s amazing,I just got 12 inches taken off my hair and that was such a shock to the system but now I am thinking of goof crazy short

  30. jaye says:

    Maybe I don’t see every pic of her, but I never see her with her baby anymore. When she first adopted him, it seemed like he was always in tow. I mean, it’s not a bad thing, I was just wondering.
