Iranian teen Sahar Tabar has reportedly broken her silence, a week after her photos went viral with media outlets and social media posts screaming “Teen Gets 50 Surgeries to Look Like Angelina Jolie”.
The viral images had been photoshopped, Tabar told Russian news outlet Sputnik, as The Independent reported.
“My fans know that this is not my real face,” Tabar was quoted as saying. “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,” The Independent reported.
Tabar’s photos drew varied reactions from social media and got users wondering how a face could have survived that many surgeries. How a teenager could have afforded that many procedures, some users asked, while others demanded to know which doctor would have consented to doing the procedures.
However, people soon spotted the teen’s unaltered images online and deduced that she used prosthetics, makeup and photoshop to achieve those drastic “post-surgery” images.
This is what the teen actually looks like, without all the makeup and prosthetics and photoshop.
Tabar may have a bright future in the makeup and prosthetic industry, but we still don’t know if Angelina Jolie has seen these photos and what she thinks of them.
