You better pull those bottles of Hawaiian Tropic out of your waste receptacle, because supermodel and well-known foot swallower Gisele Bundchen never said that she’d rather shake hands with Bridget Moynahan than slather SPF on her bones. The Daily Mail quoted Gis as saying that sunscreen is poison and she tries to only go outside before 8am since that’s when the suns rays aren’t as strong. But Gis claims that The Daily Mail doesn’t know Portuguese from Pekingese, because her words got lost in translation. Her rep tells People that some of her family members have been diagnosed with skin cancer so she would never say such a thing. This is what her rep said really came out of her mouth:
“She simply stated that her all natural skincare line does not include an SPF product. She followed that line of questions saying she tried to stay out of the sun when it is the strongest between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. And yes, Gisele does use sunscreen–just not harsh formulations. When using sunscreens she selects ones that are free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA, and retinyl palmitate. She buys her sunscreen at Whole Foods, so she can find ones that are free of harsh chemicals. She says, ‘Of course I put on sun block. I don’t want to look like a shrimp!’”
Or if you don’t have sun block on you, just put a pair of Tom Brady’s wet chonies over your face! But seriously, now that you know Gisele Bundchen’s official stance on sunscreen, you can go back to not caring about Gisele Bundchen’s official stance on sunscreen. So glad we cleared this up.
