How Long Did Shohreh Aghdashloo Marry Her First Husband?
Although she’s widely known as Shohreh Aghdashloo, the actress was born Shohreh Vaziri-Tabar. She later adopted the surname Aghdashloo from her first husband, Aydin, an Iranian artist.
Shohreh and Aydin married for seven years before eventually parted ways in 1979, just months after the Iranian Revolution broke out.
The reason behind their divorce was unknown, but fans later suspected it was because of Aydin’s sexual misconduct, which was brought to light in an exclusive report by The New York Times in 2020.
