Teenager who claimed she underwent surgery to look like Angelina Jolie says photos ‘are not my real face’

Sahar Tabar, 19, from Iran, had well over half a million followers on her Instagram page @sahartabar_official where she shares pictures of herself.

Tabar made headlines around the world last week for her dramatic weight loss and surgery addiction, while she said she underwent the procedures in order to look like Jolie, her “idol”.

She has since changed her Instagram account to private.

She told Russian news outlet Sputnik that she doctored the extreme photos as a way to “amuse” herself.

“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,” Tabar said.

“This is Photoshop and make-up. 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.

“Over time I post a photo, I make my face more fun and funny, it is a form of self-expression, a kind of art.

Social media users had previously raised doubts about the validity of Tabar’s photos, speculating she may have used Photoshop to edit her pictures.

If you look closely at the edges of this photo below, you’ll see the sides of her cheeks have been altered, because the white background is slightly blurred.
