A Reddit user has made a shocking discovery about an Iranian teenager who claims to have undergone around 50 different surgeries in an attempt to look like Angelina Jolie.
19-year-old Sahar Tabar, from Tehran, went viral earlier today as the internet were shocked by her new look.
Sahar regularly uploads selfies and photos to her popular Instagram account which currently has 341,000 followers.
Admitting that she would do anything to look just like her idol, 42-year-old Hollywood actress Jolie, Sahar has apparently undergone an extreme transformation undergoing 50 different surgeries in the space of only a few months.
The exact nature of her surgeries are unconfirmed.
According to Belgian website Sud Info, Sahar also went on an extreme diet to maintain her 40kg weight which would classify her as being dangerously underweight in medical terms in the UK.
From her Instagram pictures, you can see that the superfan wears special contact lenses that are an electric blue in an attempt to achieve Jolie’s blue eyes.
Sahar has also dyed her hair numerous times changing colour from purple, to blonde and now black.
However, not everyone on the internet is a fan of her transformation often commenting negatively calling Sahar ‘a zombie’ and ‘a corpse’.
One person wrote:
Her: Doc make me look like an 8 month old corpse.
Doc: Say no more.
It turns out though that the shocking pictures are likely to be faked, as revealed by Reddit user known as Zaza9000.
Posting on the popular site, the user wrote:
I do believe she got plastic surgery, but it’s more or less makeup and extremely exaggerating her features that she got done.
I’ve yet to figure out why other than just internet attention and fame. I kinda took it for face value, something you should never do and I ran with it.
They also shared a photo Sahar shared pointing to strange distortions and blurs that indicate that the picture has indeed been Photoshopped.
These indicators of doctoring – of the other sense – can be seen on pretty much every extreme photo Sahar shares, meaning we have probably been fooled.
Also if you look at a short video the teenager shared three days ago, she looks perfectly healthy and nothing like she does in the photos she normally shares.
Fake or not the photos are receiving a lot of attention online and so if it was internet fame Sahar was after, well, she got it.
Regularly posting selfies undeterred by the negative comments she receives, many of Sahar’s photos receive over 10,000 likes.
It is clear that people across the world enjoy what Sahar posts Photoshopped or not, so you keep on doing what you are doing girl as it is clearly working for you.
