Iranian Actress, Golshifteh Farahani Can’t Enter Home Country Without Prosecution For Posing Topless In French Video
“I was told by a Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guide official that Iran does not need any actors or artists and you may offer your artistic services somewhere else,” numerous media outlets quoted her as saying.
The scandal erupted when Farahani, who appeared with Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2008 Hollywood film “Body of Lies,” posed for topless photos and a video for the French Magazine “Madame Le Figaro” as part of a project by director Jean-Baptiste Mondino. The project features actors and actresses disrobing to promote both themselves and the notion of bodily and artistic freedom.
In the photo, Farahani, wearing only a ring, gazes mysteriously into the eyes of the viewer while delicately covering her breasts with her hands.
In the video, she appears alongside a number of French actors and actresses and uncovers one of her breasts.
The photo and video, which was quickly subtitled in Persian, were widely shared among Iranians on social media sites.
It is not her body of work that is getting Golshifteh Farahani all of this attention, it is her body. Golshifteh Farahani recently went topless in an ad for Cesar Academy -roughly the French equivalent of the Academy Awards.
The Iranian Far News agency has stated:”It was first assumed that this might be yet another plot by the enemy but the disaster dawned when she herself published her nude photo on her Facebook page.
By doing so she has now diminished whatever popularity of her that had remained in Iran. It seems that her action is a short film and in line with the Western plots to challenge the Islamic Awakening movement that is sweeping the region.”
I love how the Iranians think it is a “Western Plot” by “the enemy” to get the sweetheart of Iran nude. Hey Iran it is a “Western Plot” to get every woman naked not just the Iranian ones. This has nothing to do with the Islamic Awakening and everything to do with boobies…and for the record the French got this chick nekid not us.
Golshifteh Farahani can never return to Iran without facing persecution. Nudity in films or books is forbidden. Actually I think just being nude could draw some ire in Iran. So here is the video where Golshifteh Farahani goes topless and flashes her tiny breasts.
