She plays Furiosa in the relaunch of the dystopian sci-fi series, and stars opposite Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult and 'Dark Knight Rises' villain Tom Hardy taking on the role that made Mel Gibson famous.

You may remember that Theron famously underwent a major makeunder for her Oscar-winning role as a serial killer in 2003's 'Monster' which required her to gain 30 pounds and wear fake crooked teeth.

It seems the movie star won't have to replicate the dramatic body transformation of 'Monster', but apparently her character will be missing an arm.

Theron isn't the first actress to go bald for a role. Demi Moore shaved her head for 1997's 'G.I. Jane' and Natalie Portman followed suit for 2005's 'V for Vendetta.' Sigourney Weaver also went bald for 'Alien 3'.
