Today’s generation has seen an increase in cosmetic surgery among celebs and regular people alike. Undeniably it is a booming industry. With the increasing pressure to look young and beautiful, people, mostly teenagers, are scared to be judged by their looks and appearance. People have been dependent on make up to make themselves feel more accepted in society’s beauty standard.
As a matter of fact, one teenager gained a lot of attention after her bizarre selfies circulated online. Iranian teen Sahar Tabar became an international viral topic when neitzens dubbed her a ‘zombie Angelina Jolie lookalike.’ Recently she made a shocking revelation on how she really looks like in real life.
The now 20-year-old girl recently hit headlines, after she was reported to have gone under 50 surgeries to achieve her ‘zombie’ version look of the Oscar-winning actress. Her photos attracted countless people who criticized her look.
Some compared her to director Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride,” while some doubted how real her look was.
“I had no interest at all to be like Angelina Jolie, and I did not want to look like the character from ‘Corpse Bride’,” Sahara said to Sputnik news.
But earlier this month, in her Instagram account, the teen finally shared unedited photos of her. She has posted two pictures, one is unedited and she only wore a little make up, while the other one consists of her dramatic transformation to look like Angelina Jolie.
Although Tabar confirmed that she had undergone cosmetic surgeries, she insisted that she did not try to imitate Angelina’s look. The teen underwent rhinoplasty, liposuction and other cosmetic procedures to give her fuller lips. Furthermore, the teen revealed that photoshop and make-up prosthetics helped with her spooky and “zombie”-like look.
Moreover, she insisted that these transformations are her way of self-expression and considers it as an art.
“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.”
As far as we’re concerned, the effort put on by the ‘zombie Angelina Jolie lookalike’ is quite impressive.
