According to reports, Sahar had undergone 50 surgeries and extreme dieting to lose 40 kilos, so as to look like her idol, American actress Angelina Jolie.
Photos of an Iranian woman have gone viral on social media, and many netizens are in shock. The photos were of Sahar Tabar, a woman who is apparently a big fan of the American actress, Angelina Jolie. However, netizens criticized her for looking like a “corpse bride” instead.
The Belgian news site Sud Info reported that Sahar Tabar had undergone “50 plastic surgery operations in just a few months” and had lost 40 kilos (around 88 pounds) in an effort to physically resemble actress Angelina Jolie.
Many netizens were shocked at the extreme change Tabar had undergone, especially when she looked like this prior to surgery:
However, Tabar’s mention of technology and makeup suggested that her photographs might have been digitally altered and/or that she achieved the unusual look on display in online images in part through the application of cosmetics or prosthetics.
As a matter of fact, one Instagram carrying the name of Tabar posted a message on November 28. It stated:
“Hello relatively dear followers, the picture that you’re scrutinizing, even though I didn’t like it, I kept it in … I must say I only had [indeterminate number of] surgery, not 50 surgeries, and foreign sites and channels were very biased in the way they talked about my photos.
“I thought these people are probably living in the 18th century and they haven’t seen or heard of technology or makeup and they are really surprised.”
The many articles about Tabar now online do not contain any quote from a direct interview with her or a social media post from her in which she affirmed the number of surgeries she allegedly undertook, her purported dieting, or whether her actual motivation was to like the Academy Award-winning actress.
