Persian Actress Shohreh Aghdashloo: Thanks, LAPD ... For NOT Profiling Me


Oscar nominated actress Shohreh Aghdashloo is applauding the LAPD for treading lightly with Muslims, but knows the San Bernardino massacre is making their jobs much harder.

Shohreh -- best known for her roles in "24" and the movie, "House of Sand and Fog" -- is an Iranian born celebrity who has a strong opinion about racial profiling. 

We talked to her about the story TMZ broke -- that LAPD brass wants officers to avoid approaching Middle Easterners unless they're doing something to "arouse real suspicion."

But the Emmy winner's real issue is with Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik -- she explained how their act screwed up thousands upon thousands of lives.

Side note: Shoreh was so good in 'Sand and Fog.'
