‘My Fans Know That This Is Not My Real Face’: Iranian Teen Admits To Faking Angelina Jolie Transformation
Tabar initially claimed that she has undergone more than 50 surgeries to look like the Maleficent actress. The teen also shared photos of her botched face and later on revealed that those were edited to look like Jolie.
Sahar Tabar Admits She's A Fraud
"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," said Tabar.
Prior to admitting that her photos were all fake, critics already noticed that Tabar's images didn't look genuine. Some social media users also noted that the teen's photos were warped and not aligned.
After her pictures went viral, Tabar was dubbed as a "zombie teen" because of the way she looked. She was highly criticized on social media that she decided to keep her Instagram account private.
Even though she received a lot of negative comments, Tabar revealed, however, that she exerted a lot of time and effort into perfecting her plan: to look like Jolie. The 19-year-old had to lose weight to somehow look like her idol.
"Over time I post a photo, I make a face more fun and funny, it is a form of self-expression, a kind of art," said Tabar.
Photos of the Iranian teen without her bluish contact lenses and heavy makeup have also been released online. She has a fair skin tone, pointed nose, fuller cheeks, and an oblong face. Tabar said that her "fans" know exactly how she looks like in real life.
Brad Pitt Fans Undergo Surgery To Resemble Him
Meanwhile, if Jolie's alleged lookalike was proven to be a fraud, the actress' ex-husband, Brad Pitt, has super fans that actually underwent surgery to look like him.
Matt and Mike Schlepp spent over $20,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like the Ocean's Eleven actor. When they were just 21 years old, the Arizona natives appeared in MTV's I Want A Famous Face where they talked about their desire to look like Pitt.
"It was more than worth it. I would do it ten times over. It has definitely helped me get more girls. I'll walk and get that double-take from girls and hear the whispering that follows," said Matt.
