The “zombie” version of Angelina Jolie has revealed her real face for the first time since she got out of prison.
Fatemah Khishvand, who goes by the name Sahar Tabar, went viral on social media in 2017 after she posted a series of photos on Instagram.
The pictures showed her as a “zombified” version of the actress from Maleficent.
And even though Tabar’s Instagram photos made her famous, they also hurt her in other ways.
Watch the video below to see Angelina Jolie’s “zombie” face.
The Iran Human Rights News Agency says that the 21-year-old was jailed in October 2019 for obscenity and insulting the hijab.
It is said that she posted a picture of herself without a hijab.
Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, women in Iran have had to wear hijabs.
The rules say that women must wear a headscarf and loose-fitting clothes when they are out in public.
Tabar was given a 10-year prison sentence.
Masih Alinejad, an activist, said that Tabar was set free after serving 14 months.
Since then, the social media star has shown her real face on the state-run TV channel Rokna.
She says on the program:
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 also says that her posts, which she called “vulgarities,” helped her become well-known.
Before, many people thought that the way Tahar looked on Instagram was the result of botched plastic surgery.
She insists, though, that this is not the case. Instead, she used makeup and Photoshop to change her photos.
What you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image.
Cyberspace was an easy way. It was much easier than becoming an actor.
Tahar, on the other hand, is said to have admitted that she has had some cosmetic work done, such as a nose job and lip fillers.
Back in 2017, the influencer said she had changed pictures of herself.
She told Sputnik, a Russian news site, that she did it to “entertain” 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,
she explained to the outlet.
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.
She also said that her fans know this isn’t her “real face.”
It is said that Tahar deleted her Instagram account in 2019.
Iran has banned Facebook, Twitter, and other popular social media sites.
