Don’t be quick to believe pictures of the Iranian ‘Zombie Teen’ that is still viral.
Facts are emerging to prove that the Iranian teenager who claimed to have had 50 surgeries to make her look like her idol Angelina Jolie may have photoshopped her shocking pictures, reports TheSunUK. She has been accused of doing so by several social media users.
A couple of days ago, there were multiple reports of how a 19-year-old Sahar Tabar had been described as a “zombie” after shots from her Instagram went viral.
Instagram users originally considered whether Sahar’s shocking look may be the result of mad make-up skills rather than excessive surgery.
But now the teen, who reportedly weighs just 40kg, has been accused of using computer trickery to make her face appear slimmer and to exaggerate her likeness to Tomb Raider actress Angelina.
In a discussion on Reddit, one user highlighted odd distortions around the super-fan’s head which seem to point to evidence of photoshopping.
The photo of Sahar, posing with her cheek piercings in, shows the Iranian teen lying on furniture which is clearly warped – suggesting the photo has been edited using computer software.
A commenter suggested: “I do believe she got plastic surgery, but it’s more or less makeup and extremely exaggerating her features that she got done.”
Another pointed to two Instagram posts, uploaded 24 hours apart, which show Sahar with two very different looks.
In one, her face is much fuller, her nose is less upturned and her lips are less exaggerated.
But a second snap shows her with a much more gaunt appearance and greatly exaggerated facial features.
Viewers reckon that these very different looks could be down to a combination of computer editing and extreme make-up, although it’s difficult to know for sure.
Many of her 500,000 Instagram followers post mean comments in response to Sahar’s shocking selfies.
One said: “Her: Doc make me look like an 8 month old corpse. Doc: Say no more”
Meanwhile, other critics have compared her look to the Corpse Bride.
