Actress Charlize Theron apparently looked to soccer star Megan Rapinoe for style inspiration.
Theron claimed Rapinoe was the reason behind her current hairstyle, according to a report published Wednesday by Page Six. The “Atomic Blonde” star made the comments during the Glamour Women of the Year awards Monday night.
“The women in this room tonight are putting themselves on the frontlines of the empathy battle, via thorough storytelling, creating opportunities for those who need it most, or just unabashedly being yourself and telling other women: ‘We don’t have to apologize for who we are or what we are,'” Theron said while accepting her Rebel Award.

“And I’m looking at you, Megan,” she added while gesturing at her short hair. “This is all you.”
Although Theron just now credited Rapinoe for her pixie cut look, the actress first debuted the look back in September for “Fast & Furious 9.”
Rapinoe made headlines while the U.S. women’s team played for the World Cup throughout June and July. She was most known for her willingness to be outspoken about her thoughts on player equality in the soccer world.
