Hiding her newly shorn 'do under a chic fedora hat, Charlize Theron held baby Jackson close as the two made their way though the LAX airport to hop a plane out of town, on Saturday evening.

The Oscar winner shed her golden locks for her role as Furiosa in the upcoming flick, Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the post apocalyptic series which beings shooting next month, in Africa.

Charlize recently gushed to US mag of her upcoming role: "The original Mad Max created such a vivid world, so to go back and re-imagine it and re-play in that sandbox sounds like fun to me. Its a really challenging piece of material."
