A teen that claimed undergoing 50 surgeries to look like her idol Angelina Jolie has admitted she faked the whole thing to “amuse” herself. Many people thought that the teenager was using Photoshop to tweak her pictures. The 19-year-old Tabar has come clean and admitted that her shocking, zombie look was faked.
Rather than a result of surgery or drastic weight loss, the Iranian teen created the look through a combination of makeup and computer editing.
Tabar told Russian news outlet Sputnik: “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 added that her look, characterized by hollow cheeks, inflated and pouting lips, and bright blue eyes shouldn’t be taken at face value.
“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.”
“My fans know that this is not my real face.”
Suspicion first came about when follower of hers claimed one of her more extreme selfies had been edited in Photoshop. The warping of the background and the odd lines suggested it was tweaked and could not be real. Unretouched photos have also emerged that show tabar without her makeup and contacts recently after the original photo was released.
If she was looking for fame, she definitely got her 15 seconds of it. The angelina Jolie zombie look has to be one of the most shared photos in the past week to date. It surely created quite a bit of talk in multiple social networks, and she surely lured out the worst in people when it comes to women's looks. The real question is what will Tabar now do with her 15 minutes of fame next.
