'Zombie' Angelina Jolie lookalike showed real face in interview after being released from prison
| Last updated
There are some pretty impressive gems on social media these days. But perhaps one of the most out-there influencers is a ‘Zombie’ Angelina Jolie lookalike, who’s known for posting some eerily spooky Instagram pictures.
Well, it turns out that content creator Sahar Tabar is actually pretty normal looking in real life, despite previous claims that she underwent cosmetic surgery to achieve her skeleton-looking face.
Check out what she actually looks like here:
Appearing on a TV interview with Rokna after recently being released from prison, the social media star confirmed that her skills are simply a trick of the eye instead of the result of extreme surgery.
Iranian-based Tabar was arrested in October 2019 for ‘corruption’ and ‘blasphemy’, and was recently released from prison after 14 months served following public unrest at her 10-year sentence, as reported by activist Masih Alinejad.
The government-run media publication did not translate what the influencer revealed within the interview, but quoted her as saying: “What you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image.”
The influencer appeared to say that she was on the hunt for her seven minutes of fame through the app after she ‘wanted to be famous since I was a child'.
“Cyberspace was an easy way. It was much easier than becoming an actor,” she was quoted as saying, as reported by the Daily Mail.
But following her legal proceedings, she appeared to state that she never wanted to open the photo-sharing site ever again.
“I'm sure I will not even put Instagram on my phone anymore, let alone have a page.”
Her recent prison release in the country comes as protestors have made waves across Iran following the tragic death of Mahsa Amini.
The 22-year-old was detained and killed by morality police for allegedly not properly covering up her hair in line with Islamic state laws.
The anti-hijab protests began on 17 September at the funeral of Amini in the Kurdish town of Saqez, and have become the most challenging marches for Iran’s leaders in recent years - with many calling for supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down following the unrest.
In Iran, women have been forced by law to wear a hijab in public since April 1983, despite whether they are a visitor to the country or have differing religious views.
If you want to show your solidarity for the protestors in Iran, you can sign Amnesty International’s ongoing petition which aims to address the ongoing impunity in the country and hold Iranian officials accountable.
