Up until now the 36-year-old actress has kept her new look covered up under a hat in public but she finally unveiled her shaven head as she carried her adopted son Jackson in Namibia.

Charlize's buzz cut?

Charlize chopped off her blonde tresses earlier in the month for her role as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road.

She'll star opposite Brit actor Tom Hardy - taking on the role made famous by Mel Gibson - in the fourth instalment of the films.

Charlize recently revealed that she has ruled out treading the boards because the prospect terrifies her.

"I'm just not made for that kind of live audience where you don't create a fourth wall," she told Interview magazine. "I take my hat off to those guys."

"It's not disconnected enough for me... Some people are good at performing in front of people like that, but I'm uncomfortable at it.

"I think maybe that's the difference between acting and being a performer... As soon as there are 200 people in a theatre watching me, I get really scared".
