Sahar Tabar recently made headlines when she claimed that she underwent approximately 50 surgeries in an attempt to look like famous Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie. The photos were so shocking that it went viral worldwide.
Yesterday (Thursday, 7th December), the Iranian teenager finally came clean – it was a hoax all this while. The 19-year-old had many media outlets fooled by her fake claims and insisted that the clues were there all along.
Netizens online felt that this Angelina Jolie superfan had went overboard with her drastic weight loss. She also claimed that she loss 40kg for the extreme look, which earned her nicknames such as “corpse bride” and “zombie”, with some even commenting that she could appear as an extra on “The Walking Dead”.
Turns out, Sahar’s extreme results were achieved through the clever use of makeup and photoshop. In speaking with Russian news outlet Sputnik, the young teen explained that she only did that to “amuse” herself. “It is Photoshop and makeup. Every time I publish a photo I make my face more fun. It is my way of self-expression, a kind of art. My followers know that this is not my real face,” she told the publication.
Having said that, Sahar has done some liposuction, rhinoplasty, and botox for lips. Maybe she should consider pursuing career in the cosmetic industry. What do y’all think?
