No, she didn't really have 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie

Perhaps you've heard the story of Sahar Tabar?

The 22 year-old from Iran who got lots of attention recently after stories popped up claiming she has had dozens of surgeries, in an attempt to look like one of her favorite stars.

It would seem, however, much of the transformation was done by means of makeup and digital photo editing.

Here's a quote in Newsweek, attributed to Tabar:

“Hello relatively dear followers, the picture that you’re scrutinizing, even though I didn’t like it, I kept it in.… I must say I only had [indeterminate number of] surgery, not 50 surgeries, and foreign sites and channels were very biased in the way they talked about my photos,” Tabar supposedly said. “I thought these people are probably living in the 18th century and they haven’t seen or heard of technology or makeup and they are really surprised.”
