Sandra Bullock Has Facials Made From Korean Babies' Foreskins - Yep

It seems as though every few months, a big-name celebrity reveals that they're sticking to some weird diet or having things injected somewhere or other to make them look younger.

Well, I think we can all agree that Sanrda Bullock takes the cake for the strangest fad.

The Ocean's 8 actor sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to chat about... well, who cares, ultimately, because the important thing is that they landed on the topic of how Sandra looks so young for 53 years of age.

She tried her best to avoid giving the finer details of the facial, saying that this cocktail of creams is injected through your skin via micro-needling to increase your collagen. But Ellen wanted to know more - probably not alone there; surely we're all a little 'WTF' about this - and asked for details.

Bullock said: "Well, you push in whatever the facialist would like to insert into your pores. It is an extraction from a piece of skin that came from a young person far, far away and they somehow figured out how to extract..."

Extract what?

Well, Ellen was done with this dillydallying - cutting to the chase, she revealed that what's inside the facial cream are cells extracted from the foreskins of newborn Korean babies.



No, I didn't think I'd ever type that either, but here we are.

The host yelled: "Who comes up with this?"

Well, yeah. Who the hell does sit there and look at a baby's foreskin and goes, 'Hmm maybe we could find something in there to inject into people's faces'....?

Sandra tried to calm the crowd by saying that it's not like she has actual pieces of foreskin sitting on her face that somehow, through a process of osmosis, make her look younger.

She told the crowd: "I think when you see how good it is to your face, you too will run to your local facialist and say, 'Give me the penis'."

The Academy Award winning actor now joins the list of celebrities who have some weird secrets to staying young.

Gwyneth Paltrow once told the New York Times about her regime, saying: "I've been stung by bees. It's a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It's actually pretty incredible if you research it."

Nah, we're good.

But why stop at your face? Salma Hayek told Buzzfeed: "You can put guacamole in your hair. Not with the rest of the stuff, but you can take avocado and put it in your hair. You can take, believe it or not, mayonnaise. Mayo is really good for your hair.

"Another thing that's really good for very dry hair is - are you ready for this? - egg yolk."

I think I'll stick to shampoo and conditioner thanks, Sal.
