An Iranian teen who lit up the internet with her scary and bizarre attempts to look like Angelina Jolie has admitted that not everything about her is quite as it seems.
You may have seen these disturbing images of Sahar Tabar, 19 years old from Iran, all over the internet in the past week or so. If you haven’t, where in the heck have you been?
Lots of stories were circulating about the shocking looking teenager, who it was said had “50 plastic surgeries” to make her look like Hollywood star Angelina Jolie.
People all over the world couldn’t believe her appearance. Had she really done this to herself?
Her look even included ghostly contact lenses which turned her eyes light blue, but even looked white in some photos that she posted on her Instagram.
It was even said that Sahar had lost an incredible amount of weight to look like her idol – a worrying 40 kg, leaving her looking emaciated and painfully thin.
The internet of course went completely crazy over all this, with some people saying she looked more like Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride than Angelina.
But now, the teen has set the record straight, after admitting that it was all a lie.
Sahar Tabar came clean after many accused her of creating the pictures with Photoshop, when they had spotted blurring in the background of her pictures.
This is one of the incriminating pictures that she had posted on Instagram, see how the background looks blurry?
Eventually the 19 year old had to explain that she hadn’t really had 50 surgeries, or dropped such a startling amount of weight. In fact, she created the “corpse bride” look through Photoshop and makeup effects.
“This is Photoshop and makeup,” Sahar has said, “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.
She told Sputnik: “Now I can see that I have something in common with (Angelina Jolie), but I amuse myself, and to look like someone is not my goal.”
