‘Zombie’ Angelina Jolie shows her REAL face in Iranian TV interview after being released from prison for ‘blasphemy’
- Sahar Tabar was arrested in October 2019 and sentenced to prison for 10 years
- But a pressure campaign saw her serve only fourteen months before her release
- It was reported in 2017 that she’d had 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie
- But she revealed her true features later on Iranian TV, showing herself in hijab
A ‘Zombie’ Angelina Jolie lookalike, who’s known for posting spooky Instagram pictures, has finally revealed her real face on Iranian TV after being released from prison.
Sahar Tabar, contrary to popular belief, looks nothing like her ‘zombie’ alter ego.
Many people believed she underwent cosmetic surgery to achieve her demonic appearance, but she revealed herself on Iranian TV channel Rokna.
Tabar, 21, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, from Tehran, had originally been jailed for obscenity and insulting the hijab, according to the Iran Human Rights News Agency.
She was arrested in October 2019 for ‘corruption’ and ‘blasphemy’ and sentenced to ten years in prison.
But the media star was recently released after serving only 14 months, as reported by activist Masih Alinejad.

‘What you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image,’ she was quoted as saying, according to Lad Bible.
Announcing Tabar’s jail sentence back in 2020, the activist wrote online: ‘Sahar Tabar is only 19. Her joke landed her in jail.
‘Her mother cries every day to get her innocent daughter freed. Dear Angelina Jolie! we need your voice here. Help us.’
It was also reported that Tabar had caught Covid-19 in 2020, with the US-based Center For Human Rights In Iran saying a judge in the country refused to grant her bail despite the fact that coronavirus was rife in the country’s prisons at the time.
Ms Alinejad called on Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie to petition for Tabar’s release in a video, adding ‘Islamic Republic has a history of tormenting women. We need to be united against this gender apartheid.’
This year, Iran has been rocked by widespread protests and strikes raging across the country for the sixth week in a row following the death of Mahsa Amini, who was killed in custody after being accused of breaching Iran’s strict dress code for women.
Her death has fuelled the biggest anti-government protests seen in the Islamic Republic for years.

In 2019, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Channel 3 (IRIB TV3) said that Tabar was facing between three months and two years in prison.
The social media star shot to fame in 2017 after she reportedly had 50 surgeries to make her look like the Oscar-winning actress Ms Jolie.
She later confirmed her look was mostly was achieved through make-up and editing in a pre-trial television interview in which appeared as a ‘zombie’, with her face mostly blurred out.
She told the interviewer that she did not look like her Instagram pictures because they were heavily edited in Photoshop.
Charges against Tabar included blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption
Tabar also said that it had been her childhood dream to become famous, and that she had persisted with her efforts to build her Instagram following despite her mother’s objections.
She later admitted she’d had some surgery such as a nose job, lip fillers and liposuction but insisted most of her unusual appearance is down to make-up and editing.
Cosmetic surgery is hugely popular in the Islamic republic, with tens of thousands of operations taking place each year.
Instagram is the only major social media service accessible in Iran unlike Facebook and Twitter and the Telegram messenger service are officially banned. It has since been blocked in certain areas of the country since the 2022 protests.
