In October 2019, a woman called Sahar Tabar was arrested in Iran for committing blasphemy and sentenced to 10 years in jail. The Iranian woman, who claimed to undergo 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie was released from jail after only 14 months due to nationwide protests after the death of Mahsa Amini. She has finally revealed her real face behind the “zombie” version of Angelina Jolie.
Who Is Zombie Angelina Jolie?
Fatemah Khishvand aka Sahar Tabar is the woman behind this spooky version of Angelina Jolie. In 2019, an Iranian woman was all over the internet for posting a “spooky” Angelina Jolie look, while claiming that she underwent numerous surgeries to look like the 47-year-old star. However, the surgeries made her look like a creepy version of Jolie.
In Oct. 2019, Fatemah was jailed for 10 pears per Iran’s strict blasphemy laws but was released from prison this year, after the Mahsa Amini protest ignited across Iran. Now, she has come forward and revealed her true identity behind that “zombie” Angelina Jolie face. In a recent interview, she revealed that her viral look was made using heavy makeup and photoshop skills, and not surgery.
Last year, activist, Masih Alinejad wrote that “Sahar is only nineteen, but her joke landed her in prison while her mother cries every day. Dear Angelina Jolie, we need your voice here.”
Why Did Sahar Lie About Surgery?
What was a joke, became an absolute nightmare for Fatemah and her family. Known as Sahar Tabar on the internet, the “zombie Angelina Jolie,” revealed her real face to an Iranian TV channel after her release from jail. She was arrested and jailed in 2019 for “insulting hijab” on charges of blasphemy.
However, it has come out that the 21-year-old girl did not undergo any surgeries. The then-19-year-old social media personality claimed that she underwent at least 50 surgeries to look like the Grammy-winning star. In reality, the look was a result of heavy makeup and photoshop.
Sahar Tabar, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, said “she always wanted to become famous and chose this lie to gain international attention, and well, some followers on Instagram. But the move landed her in jail for 10 years. Amid the growing protest for Mahsa Amini’s death, she served only 14 months and was released last month.
As celebrities come forward to support the Mahsa Amini protest, many still do not know what is actually happening in Iran. The country, once ‘run by a great leadership’ before 1979, was known for its rich culture and was respected by others. The Persian empire was the greatest of all, known for its innovation, science, mathematics and poetry.
However, after the Islamic Republic regime took over and forced its ideology, propaganda and dictatorship on the people. It slaughtered, murdered and stole from innocent people.” Now, Iran is hated by every single country because of its horrible government and for being the biggest sponsor of terrorism. If you’re not aware, Iran has undergone a negative change since “the Iranian Revolution noticed the Islamic republic come into energy beneath Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.”
Recently, Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old innocent girl, lost her life following her detention by the country’s morality police for “improper hijab”. This sparked protests across the country as women protesters continue to cut their hair and burn hijabs. Many protestors from Iran have sought help from American celebrities to highlight the issue on the world stage.
The innocent girl was severely beaten by Guidance Patrol officers, an assertion which has been denied by Iranian authorities. The Mahsa Amini protests began in Tehran on Sept. 16, 2022, against the government, and have resulted in civil unrest. Many have lost their lives in the protest amid the government’s intervention.
