Meet jailed Iran Instagram star who did 50 plastic surgeries to look like an animated character

An Iranian Instagram star allegedly jailed for blasphemy in October has expressed regrets over plastic surgery decision in an interview broadcasted on Iranian TV.

Sahar Tabar gained worldwide fame on social media for her eerie likeness to American actress Angelina Jolie – a look she is rumoured to have achieved by having as many as 50 plastic surgeries.

Sahar Tabar gained worldwide fame on social media for her eerie likeness to American actress Angelina Jolie – a look she is rumoured to have achieved by having as many as 50 plastic surgeries.

She was arrested on 5 October on a raft of charges including blasphemy, instigating violence, insulting the Islamic hijab dress code and encouraging corruption among young people. The hardline Tasnim news agency reported at the time that her arrest was based on “numerous messages from the public calling for the case to be pursued”

Almost a month later, Iranian Channel Two (IRTV2) has shown an interview with the star, in which she was introduced as a “zombie” and an example of how “the madness to become famous on social media has ruined a real life”.

“I do not currently look like my photoshopped pictures,” admitted Tabar, who went on to deny western media assumptions that her aim was to look like Angelina Jolie. It was in fact, she pointed out, to resemble the main character in the British-American animated dark fantasy Corpse Bride.

“My childhood dream was to become famous,” she clarified. The 22-year-old had her wish come true last year when she published a series of images on Instagram showing her heavily altered look – additionally enhanced by makeup and photo editing.

IRTV2 alluded to her having regrets for drastically changing her appearance. “My mother was telling me to stop, but I didn’t listen.

Sometimes the words of a stranger or a friend can be more important than those of a parent,” Tabar said.
