Meet Sahar Tabar dubbed the Angelina Jolie of Iran. She has undergone 50 surgeries to try and look like her idol, has she succeeded? pic.twitter.com/pV3uFnUtU6— LecronIsTheOne (@Lecron) November 30, 2017
An Iranian teenager has gone viral on social media after going under the knife 50 times to look like Hollywood star Angelina Jolie.
Sahar Tabar, 19, claims to be a huge fan of Jolie, but instead of simply professing her love for the Hollywood diva and moving on with her life, she decided to undergo 50 plastic surgeries so she could resemble her idol. She also lost nearly 88 pounds during her transformation.
Unfortunately, many of her online followers are now calling her a zombie, saying she looks nothing like Jolie, but instead, the character from Tim Burton’s "The Corpse Bride."
The teen has more than 400,000 followers on Instagram, where she shares photos of herself after the many surgeries she has undergone.
While the images appear to be real and the teen has been vocal online about her passion for Jolie, Metro reports that her extreme look might be simply a result of make-up and Photoshop.
As sad as this story is, however, this isn’t the only time someone has gone under the knife to look like someone they admire.
Claudia Sierra, a 42-year-old Texas woman, has subjected herself to nine surgeries to look like first lady Melania Trump.

On social media, users are comparing old photos of Tabar to the ones she shares on Instagram now and noting the dramatic transformation. The fact that the teen chose to do what she did to herself serves as a powerful example of how societal pressure to look a certain way is destroying the lives of countless young women across the globe.
