I am not familiar with Elnaz Shakerdoost. I have seen movies from Ms. Karimi and Ms. Tehrani but I have probably not watched as many movies from them as you have seen. Since I think you have seen more movies of them and you are a man, you may know better who is more of a sex symbol among them. But I can say that all three are beautiful and talented actresses.


ایشون بازیگر


ایشون بازیگر درجه یک که نیست هیچ- سلیقه ش درلباس پوشیدن افتضاحه. این لباس که مثل اینه که یک لباس شب از فروشگاه راس خریده بعد هم یک هود از

Old Navy

روی لباس تنش کرده- یعنی ازین بی ریخت تر امکان نداشت. 

لباس مراسم اسکار هم که دیگه هیچ. اصلا جای بحث نداره. سرتا پا سفید یا آبی کمرنگ مثل روح سرگردان. با پارچه گیپورازمد افتاده صد سال پیش. به نظرم بدترین لباس مراسم بود.

Anahid jaan it depends what is your definition of girl next door

by Esfand Aashena on

 Leila Hatami is beautiful but she is not a "sex symbol". Elnaz Shakerdoost, Niki Karimi or Hedieh Tehrani fall more into that category.

Everything is sacred

Anahid Hojjati

Exactly Esfand jaan, Leila Hatami

by Anahid Hojjati on

is not Girl Next door either. She has unique features and is too glamorous to be Girl Next Door.

Esfand Aashena

Anahid Jaan Ingrid Bergman was never a "girl next door"!

Esfand Jaan,

by Anahid Hojjati on

I don't know about girl next door. I think EastMeetsWest got it right when he/she compared Hatami to Ingrid Bergman.

Esfand Aashena

Leila Hatami is Sandra Bullock of Iran! Girl next door!

by Esfand Aashena on

Fitting that Sandra Bullock gave the award! 

Everything is sacred


and more proof

by tabar on

of how backwards persians are, talking about golshifteh and basically calling her a slut.

you people are disgusting and have no right to tell her what she can and can't do. in any civilised society there wouldn't be a problem, but of course we're talking about persia here! it's a shame what a religious cesspool your people and shia religion have turned iran into, and now even outside of iran you continue your misogynist traditions. congratulations,  the world will see you guys for what you really are!


A great movies

WE WON:A Separation wins Oscar for best foreign language film

by Darius Kadivar on


Just got back from seeing this movie

by John on

It should have been nominated in the Best Picture category, not the best foreign language film category.  A great movie!!


Ingrid Bergman of Iran

by EastMeetsWest on

I am a big fan of Leila Hatami.  She is a lady and she reminds me of Ingrid Bergman! She is elegant and classy and she has shown that unlike her counterpart she is not hungry to tear her clothes off! Good luck to her!


Separation of Leila from Pride

by Demo on

With all the tough times her fellow Iranians have back home, she could have instead boycotted the dinner and the phony Oscars ceremonies altogether as a sign of protest to the imposed sanctions causing many hundred thousands 'true' Iranians' stomachs sleep hungry! Shame, Leila, shame!

As for Golshifteh, she also seems to be moving high speed toward her own self liberation as it is wisely pointed by the first commentator below! 


Her mother was so hot!

by Milan on

Back in mid-70's, my friends and I were infatuated with this lady's mother (we called her Zari Khosh-Khaab!) Man, she had some steamy shower scenes with Saeed Raad.


Rumors have it that Imam Jomeh of Beverly Hills and Hollywood

by fanoos on

will be having a rally in support of the Separation and against the other International movie competitions! My cousin tells me that the rally will start right after the evening prayer and dinner at the Mosque of Imam Hossein right next to the O.J. Simpson's old house! I wonder how many of you supporters of IRR will show up tonight!


There is a big competition there

by iamfine on

I just heard from foreign films there is strong completion between an Israeli film, the Iranian film (separation) and a polish film on holocaust. Good luck on separation. The good thing is Iranian in the southern California are influential in Hollywood and may be helpful to let separation to win the Oscar


She looks like she is wearing a ghondagh

by Mehrban on

I wish her the best and hope the team of A Separation wins an Oscar in  every category it has been nominated.

Unbeknown to many, Leila is the grandchild of legendary Seyyed Babak Khorram-din known as Obi Kenobi. And you can clearly see the influence of Obi Kenobi's attire on Leila's choice. Leila is also a distant third cousin to princes Leia and collectively their mission has been to finally destroy none other than the dictator Ayatollah Darth Vader. May the force be with her. Watch the clip from family archive here and the traditional dress code:


The video above were taken during Kohrram-din's last years of life and just after his cataract and prostate dual surgery, but see how he could still fight, like a true Iranian.

Mohammad Alireza

Sareh Bayat deserves nomination

by Mohammad Alireza on

Sareh Bayat was fantastic and should have received a nomination for supporting actress. She totally upstaged Leila Hatami.


If it were me I would take the scarf off and show some cleavage!

by fanoos on

Where is the courage and boldness of Iranian women? At least, Shirin Ebadi took hers off! Not that I think highly of her but she did it!


Leila Hatami

by Simorgh5555 on

Leila Hatami is one of the few handful of women who wears a Hijab and still display class and sexiness. I still wish that she would remove the headscarf but she is ravishingly beautiful nonetheless and puts to shame 99.9 percent of Hollwyood acresses with her beautiful pointed nose and those to die-for lips. 

Well done and best wishes.  


a typical beatiful Iranian lady

by iamfine on

Her dress makes her look more attractive

Mohammad Ala

Best wishes.

by Mohammad Ala on

Best wishes to our actors and actresses.

Soosan Khanoom

She is beautiful

by Soosan Khanoom on

I like her choice of dress ....

I'm starting my own countdown...........not to the Oscar's live broadcast, but to her liberation...........:)
