This is what the 'Zombie Girl' who wants to look like Angelina Jolie looked like before Photoshop and plastic surgery
Cast your mind back to late 2017 and the internet was being ruled by one woman and one woman alone. While you more than likely think I'm talking about Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner, I'm actually talking about an Iranian teenager who went viral online due to her extreme appearance that was based upon looking like Angelina Jolie but left her resembling the Corpse Bride.
Of course, it turned out that the whole thing was actually a huge prank and she didn't actually look like a zombie in real life.
However, while Sahar Tabar may have caused shockwaves through her made-up appearance, which she says is down to "Photoshop and makeup," she claims that she never wanted to look like the A-lister in the slightest and just ran with it once someone compared her to the Tomb Raider star.
In the images, Sahar can be seen with gaunt skin, pale blue eyes an upturned nose and massive lips. It was also reported that she had dropped to a weight of 88lbs in order to replicate the actor's svelte frame - something which also turned out to be false.
Speaking at the time of the reveal, Sahar said: “Now I can see that I have something in common with her (Angelina Jolie), but I amuse myself, and to look like someone is not my goal.
“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.”
But, while she may have insisted that she has not had operations to look like Angelina Jolie, Sahar admits that she has had a handful of procedures in order to alter her appearance. She added: “I have had my nose operated, my lips were enlarged and I also had a liposuction.
“I do not see anything terrible in the operations, many people do this kind of procedures all over the planet.”
So, while she may not look like the Corpse Bride figure that gave her internet fame, what does Sahar actually look like? Well, now we have an answer.
Taking to her Instagram account, Sahar posted side-by-side images of herself in real life compared to her "Zombie Angelina" character in order to show just how different she looks from the images that gave her notoriety on the internet.
If you scroll through Sahar's Instagram profile - which has over 300,000 followers - you can see that her appearance changes throughout time and that, even just a year ago, she looked extremely different from the highly modified girl that we know today. In fact, in all honesty, Sahar looked completely normal in her old photos - something which is hard to get your head around at first.
I mean, credit where credit is due, you have to give it to Sahar for creating fame on the internet through her appearance. If there's anything to take from her story, it's to remember to not believe everything you see online.
