The ‘zombie’ Angelina Jolie lookalike has revealed her real face after being released from prison.

Sahar Tabar, whose real name is Fatemah Khishvand, went viral on social media in 2017 after uploading a series of photos on Instagram.

The images depicted her as a ‘zombified’ version of the Maleficent actress.

And while Tabar’s Instagram photos found her fame, they also backfired.

According to the Iran Human Rights News Agency, the 21-year-old was jailed for obscenity and insulting the hijab in October 2019.

It’s claimed she posted a photo of herself without wearing the hijab.

Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, it has been compulsory that women must wear the hijab in Iran.

The rules state that women must adorn a headscarf in public, as well as loose-fitting clothing.

Tabar was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

However, after serving 14 months, Tabar was released, as reported by activist Masih Alinejad.

The social media star has since appeared on the state-owned channel Rokna with her real face.

She says on the programme: “My mother was telling me to stop, but I didn’t listen.

“Sometimes the words of a stranger or a friend can be more important than those of a parent.”

Tabar adds that her posts – which she described as a ‘vulgarity’ – helped her to become famous.

Previously, many had been led to believe that Tahar’s Instagram appearance was the result of botched plastic surgery.

However, she stresses that this is not the case – instead she used makeup and edited her snaps with Photoshop.

She explains: “What you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image.

“Cyberspace was an easy way. It was much easier than becoming an actor.”

However, Tahar has reportedly acknowledged that she has had some cosmetic procedures, including a nose job and lip fillers.

The influencer admitted that she had altered images of herself back in 2017.

She told Russian news outlet Sputnik that she had done it to ‘amuse’ herself.

“Now I can see that I have something in common with [Angelina Jolie], but I amuse myself, and to look like someone is not my goal,” she explained to the outlet.

“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.

She added that fans are aware this isn’t her ‘real face’.

Tahar reportedly deleted her Instagram profile in 2019.

Iran has banned several major social media networks, including Facebook and X, formally known as Twitter.
