Actress banned from Iran for posing nude

An actress who has starred with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe has been banished from her home country of Iran – because she posed nude in a French news magazine.

Golshifteh Farahani says she has been contacted by the Iranian government, telling her that she is no longer welcome in the country and advising her not to return home.

The offending photo – a black-and-white ‘art shot’ featuring the 28-year-old Farahani posing against a black backdrop with her hands strategically placed over her breasts – was first published in Madame Le Figaro.

The image was then posted on her Facebook page, drawing visitors from around the world – including Iran and the Middle East.

While many criticised her ‘incedency’, others praised her for ‘the courage to remove a taboo among the women in Muslim countries’.

Iran’s anger at the image is not just because of Farahani’s nudity – she has also made it known that her decision to pose is in protest against restrictive Islamic codes.

Indeed, it is why the now-Paris-based actress left Iran last year.

She said: I was told by a ministry of culture and Islamic guide official that Iran does not need any actors or artists. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else.’

Farahani has had a mercurial relationship with her home country.

She began acting in theatre at the age of six and her first film, The Pear Tree (1998), earned the then 14-year-old the Best Actress award at Iran’s annual Fajr Film Festival.

She immediately became a leading actress in her home country, yet her performance in the 2007 film Santoori has never been seen in Iran and is still banned.

She starred in M For Mother (2006), which after a huge success in Iran was chosen to represent Iran for the Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards in 2008.

Farahani’s role as a nurse in Ridley Scott’s Body Of Lies (2008) – which also starred Hollywood big-hitters DiCaprion and Crowe – made her the first Iranian to act in a major Hollywood film.

As a result she was banned from leaving Iran, and – now that she has left eh country and is living in Paris – she appears to be banned from returning.

  1. She has a beautiful body. I don’t see what the deal is about her showing it off. There are many men and women who would enjoy making love to her.
    but I don’t feel good when our daughters and sisters show up nude for public. I do agree professional and emotional freedom should be there, but to what extent. In reality no body cares about feminine respect. In USA virtually all top celebrities has show extreme nudity. I think its our human nature to undress other daughters and now the trend is online…
    i respect your opinion. now she has been banned from coming back to Iran. she has violated Islamic rules as well. but she has done it for herself. why make it a matter of country. let god cope with her. she should be allowed to come back and she should be allowed to justify herself. so many actors show nude but their countries don’t make it a matter of their country. although she has violated Islamic rules, let God cope with her but let her come back ..
