An Iranian teenager, Sahar Tabar has gone under surgery around 50 times to look like Angelina Jolie.
The 19-year-old from Tehran said that she “would do anything” to have Angelina’s appearance.
It is not out of the ordinary for young women to idolize this actress. She is cited as the ‘world’s most beautiful woman’ by Vanity Fair, People, and Vogue.
Sahar’s transformation takes this to the extreme. Unfortunately, this meant that the comments she received have been negative, with trolls describing her as a “zombie” or a “demon.”
Belgian site Sud Info reports that she had 50 surgeries a few months, to look like Angelina Jolie.
While it is not certain which surgeries she underwent, the results have been drastic. Some even claim that a few changes must be attributed to makeup.
The Jolie fan gets her blue eyes with coloured contact lenses.
She has changed her hair color many times, with photos in her Instagram showing Sahar with black, purple, and blonde hair.
Before her surgeries, this is what she looked like:
Her selfies on her Instagram account appears to show her partway through the transformation:
The huge following she amassed has meant that her photos and videos have received a lot of unflattering comments.
One of the bullying comments read:
“Her: Doc make me look like an 8 month old corpse.
Doc: say no more.”
The teen has described her ideal weight as 40kg, and has gone through a harsh diet to maintain it.
The information makes the body shaming comments more difficult to read, as Sahar’s quest to look like Angelina Jolie has encouraged her to become underweight.
The story speaks volumes about how young people’s perceptions of beauty and self-worthare being affected.
