She is the queen of transformations in her films, but it seems Charlize Theron is going through a very personal transformation in real life as well.
The stunning South African actress bravely stepped out in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday declaring to the world she’s proud of her greying hair.
While it remains unknown if the colour is her own, or was dyed for a movie role, the Snow White And The Huntsman star did nothing to hide her salt and pepper locks in a move which will undoubtedly empower other women.
Known for her beautiful blonde hair the Oscar-winner recently chopped off her golden blonde mane earlier this month to play Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the post apocalyptic series.
In doing so, as her hair grows back, the mother-of-one seems to have revealed that at 37 she has started to go grey.
Short and chic: The Young Adult star is taking her Mad Max role seriously with a coat reminiscent of the classic 80s film
The stunning face of J’Doir perfume proved hair colour does not stop a woman from being stunning, as she still looked amazing wearing a billowy black t-shirt, sky blue skinny jeans and a Mad Max-inspired coat.
The 5ft 9in star chose to skip heels and opted for flats to complete her chic look, as she took the day off from mum duties.
The Young Adult star has been spotted around town caring for her eight-month-old son, whom she adopted from her homeland of South Africa back in May.
Charlize later met up with her mother, Gerda Maritz, to enjoy a movie at Hollywood theatre the Arc Light.
The pair laughed and locked arms as the finished with the film.
Charlize has publicly spoken of the strength she draws from her mother who when the actress was 15, shoot and kill her abusive, alcoholic father, Charles Theron, while acting in self-defense.
‘My mother is amazing, and I know all daughters or children will say this, it sounds very biased, but she is very unique. She’s saved my life many times,’ she told Piers Morgan in 2011.
The latest installemtn of Mad Max does not come out until 2014 but the actress has said she is excited – and ‘scared s***less’ for people to see the role she sacrificed her hair for.
‘I feel like the original ‘Mad Max’ created such a vivid world, that to go back and re-imagine it and kind of replay in that sandbox sounds like fun to me,’ she said in an interview with Screenrant.
‘George [Miller, the director of the film] really created a female character that I’ve never read anything like.’
