Charlize Theron has never shied away from daring hairstyles. After all, this is the woman who shaved her head for a role in "Mad Max" and rocked a pixie cut like no other. But the award-winning actress might just have outdone herself with her latest mane move.

The "Long Shot" star rocked some seriously blunt micro-bangs (baby bangs) on the red carpet last night, and we almost didn't recognize her.

After ogling the 43-year-old's new fringe from every angle, we had to wonder: Were her new bangs real? Or just temporary? Luckily, we didn't have to wait too long to find out, because Theron's go-to hairstylist, Adir Abergel, soon revealed that he used faux bangs on the star.

It's not uncommon for stars to test drive a new 'do on the red carpet, so we're not surprised Theron only went for faux bangs. She's still probably getting used to her last drastic hair change: going from blond to brunette in February.

Baby bangs have always been a somewhat polarizing look, with Courtney Cox's "Scream 3" bangs serving as a comedic hair horror story for years.

All kidding aside, Theron certainly rocked the look with her signature attitude, and looked pretty darn amazing, if you ask us. And if she chooses to make the look permanent one day, we won't be upset!
