The power of social media is such that it does not take long for anything to become viral, all it takes is someone willing to be whacky enough for the web. One such incident we saw, was the Iranian woman who underwent 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie.
The world was shocked and some even had adverse reactions to her transformation, saying that she looked more like a zombie than the actress. But we have news for you! Her transformation is not exactly what we all fell for.
Russian news outlet, Sputnik approached the girl, Sahar Tabar, after the 17-year-old’s picture went viral and she made some surprising revelations in the exclusive interview. On being asked whether she really wanted to look like Jolie, she said,
“No, of course. This is Photoshop and makeup. Every time I publish a photo, I paint my face in an increasingly funny way. It is a way of expressing yourself, a kind of art. My fans know that this is not my real face.”
Yup, you read that right, she looks nothing like her pictures which went viral all over the internet.
She also revealed that while she had no intention of looking like Jolie, the cartoon character “Rotting Bride” wasn’t exactly her inspiration either.
It is only after she was recognised as Angelina Jolie that she realised that looking like someone is not the end. She considers herself as a muse for her art.
But, her transformation is not all fake as she has admitted going under the knife to enhance a few of her features, and she does not regret it. She said,
“I had a nose, enlarged mouth and liposuction. I see nothing wrong with the operations: many people in the world undergo this kind of treatment. “
Alleged untampered photos have surfaced on the internet showing what she actually looks like. While she did lose weight, it was just about 5-7 kgs. She did not maintain her weight at 40 kgs to look like Angelina Jolie, as she has confessed to being 54 kgs.
Contrary to the way she was received in the virtual world, Sahar is not treated any differently in the real world and is not bothered by any negativity as she believes only God can judge her. She also said that although her family did not approve of her plastic surgeries they completely support her after the procedures.
Well, after this revelation all I have to say is, she fooled everybody!
