It was reported recently here that a teenager, Sahar Tabar, underwent an apparent 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie. This left many in shock as they wondered why one could do such to one’s self. New details seem to have emerged.
She has now reporedly suggested her extreme look was created by ‘technology and makeup’.
Speaking out for the first time since the photos of her originally surfaced, Iranian Sahar Tabar also said she has not undergone 50 operations in a bid to look like her idol.
She also reportedly admits she’s done cosmetic surgery, but nothing as drastic as the look that went viral.
But according to recent report, Russia’s state-sponsored international news agency is featuring a supposedly “real” interview with Sahar. In the piece, which is only available in Russian, the Iranian teen claims she never said anything about wanting to look like Angelina Jolie and she also hasn’t had 50 surgeries. She said the photos were really posted by her but that isn’t how she really looks.
“Of course not. [referring to the surgeries] This is Photoshop and makeup. Every time I post a photo, I make my face all the funnier and funnier. It is such a way of self-expression, a kind of art. My fans know that this is not my real face.” said Tabar.
She does confirm she got a nose job, pumped up her lips, and had a liposuction. But nothing remotely close to the claims published by the media.
She added: “I do not see anything terrible in operations: many people are doing this kind of procedure on the planet. Here, in Tehran, one operation costs 10 million Iranian rials ($300 US)”
