Well that’s one way to grab our attention, Charlize! Spotted stepping out in Beverley Hills today, the Snow White and The Huntsman star sported a distinctly new look: a closely-shaved back and sides!

So is Charlize starting a daring new GI Jane beauty trend? Err, no. In fact, the motivation behind the newly-shorn hair was the South African actress’s new role as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. Cripes, talk about commitment to a role! 'It's been three years: It's time to skin this cat already!' Theron said last month in anticipation of the new look. 'I'm very excited about it.' Surprisingly, we are too. Because if anyone can pull off a shaved head, it's Charlize.

Of course, it wasn't long ago that we gasping at the sight of Anne Hathaway having her hair chopped off in the trailer for 'Les Misérables'. The gorgeous actress bravely ditched her luscious brunette tresses in order to play Fantine in the new film and we admit it's taken us a while to get used to the drastic cut. And let's not forget Natalie Portman shaved her head to star in V for Vendetta, Demi Moore sported the look in G.I. Jane and Sigourney Weaver went shaved in Alien3.

So is losing your locks for a role the true sign of a bona fide actress? You tell us...

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    Arrest warrant sought for S. Korea ferry captain

    South Korean prosecutors sought arrest warrants Friday for the captain and two crew members of the ferry that capsized two days before with hundreds of children on board, a coastguard official said. The captain and most of his 28 crew managed to escape the ferry, and have been criticised for abandoning the ship when so many were still trapped on board. Tracking data from the Maritime Ministry showed the ferry made a sharp turn just before sending its first distress signal on Wednesday morning. Prosecutors said Friday that preliminary investigations showed that captain Lee Joon-Seok had handed the helm to his third officer before the ferry capsized.
