Brit porn star goes to Iran for nose job; loves country.

A British porn actress has sparked outrage in Iran after revealing she had quietly visited the country for a nose job.

Twenty-five-year-old Candy Charms, who has a surgically-enhanced bust, posted a selfie on Instagram of her sitting in a Tehran taxi in headscarf and sunglasses.

She said: "My nose was not straight and they are the best in the world in nose surgery. I had my nose done.

"Loved Tehran. The people are so kind and generous. Really overwhelmed by the whole trip. The people are amazing."

But when the glamor model's post was noted in Iran, some locals were not happy, despite Candy's gushing tribute to the country's hospitality.

Among the deluge of 40,000 replies, some questioned whether a porn actress should have been allowed into the Islamic Republic. British nationals must obtain a visa before entering Iran.

Other Iranians were more supportive, welcoming Candy to their country.

One user named Arash wrote: "Welcome to Iran also I am so disappointed I couldn't meet you."

With a reputation for lowcost, high-quality surgery, Tehran has been described as the "nose job capital of the world." There are reportedly more nose jobs performed per person in Tehran than in Los Angeles.

Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi, who is in charge of the branch of the Foreign Ministry that issues visas, said the porn star "applied for a visa through a travel agency" and used a different name. (Candy Charms is not her real name.)

The Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) quoted Qashqavi as telling travel companies to more carefully examine the applications of those wishing to visit Iran. He said,

"We have clerics and lawmakers who have cultural sensitivities and these sorts of developments may cause problems later."

Due to the deluge of attention, Candy decided to delete her Instagram post, but later reposted it on a new Instagram page.

The story was first reported by The Times of London, and swiftly picked up by the London tabloids. No one asked why the historically staid Times was monitoring the Instagram page of a porn star.

Although Candy was concerned about her crooked nose, no one else seems ever to have noticed anything wrong with her nose.
