Angelina Jolie 'lookalike' Sahar Tabar reveals what she really looks like without makeup
Recently, Sahar Tabar took to Instagram to show a side-by-side picture of what she really looks like and how she uses makeup for her transformations.
Iranian teenager Sahar Tabar rose to fame for her striking resemblance to actress Angelina Jolie, all thanks to surgery, makeup, and photoshop. Recently, she took to Instagram to show a side-by-side picture of what she really looks like and what the makeup does to her. She caught everyone's attention after she revealed last year that she had nearly 50 surgeries in order to look like a 'zombie' version of the Oscar-winning actress. She admitted that she had got a nose job, lip fillers, and liposuction done but further added that most of the illusion was formed with the help of makeup and editing. However, the recent pictures that she uploaded of herself without any makeup or editing make will force you to look twice as there is a drastic difference between her other pictures and the one she uploaded.
The first picture that Sahar shared showed her having black hair, brown eyes, and much smaller lips than the one she showcased in other pictures. Next to it was an image of her dressed more as a creepy version of Jolie, more like something out of Tim Burton's movies. With sunken cheeks, long lashes, bigger lips and dark makeup, it becomes hard for a person to realize that both the girls in the same are the same people.
Speaking to Sputnik News, last year, Sahar had confessed that she likes to make herself the way she does because she feels it is a way she can express herself. Despite getting a lot of criticism over her looks, it does not seem to bring down her spirits as even after all this time, she still posts pictures on her social media.
"Every time I publish a photo I make my face more fun. It is my way of self-expression, a kind of art. My followers know that this is not my real face," she told the website. Even though many still compare her to Jolie, who Sahar also calls her "idol", the 19-year-old explained that it was never her intention to look like the actress. " I had no interest at all to be like Angelina Jolie, and I did not want to look like the character from “Corpse Bride”. I understand that I do have some similarities to them, but I am my own muse and I did not want to look like anyone. That was not my aim," she continued.
Sahar further sheds light on the surgeries she has had. "Rhinoplasty, Botox for lips and liposuction operations," she said." I don’t see anything bad in this. It's simple and many people around the world do it. Here in Tehran, the cost of one operation is 10 million Iranian rials ($283)." While Sahar is happy with the way she looks, it was never too easy to convince her family of accepting her new look. "They resisted as best they could at first. For them, it [plastic surgeries] is not a normal thing. But now my family totally supports me and that is the most important thing," she revealed.
As for the haters on the Internet, Sahar says, "For me, the most important thing is to have the acceptance of my family and God. I have those and that is enough for me. Opinions from the rest of the world are not important, I ignore their negativity." While the Internet may not be open-minded about her decision, the people in her city sure are. "People react normally when I appear in the city. They recognize me, call out my name, talk to me and hug me," she said. "They support me and I don’t feel any negativity from them."
