Cape Town – Iranian TV photoshopped clothes onto Charlize Theron when broadcasting a local clip of the Oscars.

Iranian director, Asghar Farhadi was awarded with Best Foreign-Language Oscar for his film The Salesman at the Academy Awards on Monday morning.

Farhadi’s absence got a lot of attention as Iranian-American engineer Anousheh Ansari accepted the award on his behalf.

Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the special moment is making headlines for different reasons.

Theron took to the stage with Shirley MacLaine to present the award. The South African beauty wore a gold Dior gown that the Iranian Labor News Agency found sensitive for its viewers, prompting them to cover Charlize up by adding a black neck and sleeves to the dress.
