Actress Sandra Bullock is on the promotional trail for her new movie Ocean's 8, also starring Cate Blanchett. She has an interesting marketing ploy: penis facials.
Her Biggest Beauty Secret
Bullock stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss the all-female reboot of the popular heist movie, originally starring George Clooney. During the chat, she divulged the super-secret skincare tip she swears by to keep her face looking healthy and fresh.
"It's this way in which one forces, through micro-needling, it's like a little roller... It pushes through the skin and ruptures the collagen and you look like a burn victim for a day, but then it pushes," she began, only for the host to interrupt, demanding to know exactly what was being pushed into the skin.
Bullock tried to avoid giving it away completely, clearly uncomfortable with being put on the spot.
"It is an extraction from a piece of skin that came from a young person far far away," she said coyly.
Give Me The Penis
Thankfully, DeGeneres stepped in and announced to the entire studio that the substance in question is foreskin from a Korean baby.
"I call it the 'penis facial,' and when you see how good it is to your face, you too will run to your local facialist and say, 'Give me the penis'," Bullock joked, eventually acquiescing to DeGeneres' demands.
When pressed about which other members of the Ocean's 8 cast partook in this strange beauty regime, Bullock wasn't naming any names, however.
According to PEOPLE, who tried out the facial for themselves, her co-star Blanchett is also a fan.
The publication also noted that Bullock isn't lying about how well it makes your skin look, as their guinea pig revealed her skin was positively glowing for days afterward and that its usual redness had all but disappeared.
Although, at around $650 a pop, it's not the kind of indulgence most normal women could afford.
Bullock would only give away that she'd shared the treatment with those she thought would appreciate it, so it's up to fans to watch the movie and decide who looks the most like she's partaken in a penis facial.
Ocean's 8 hits theaters June 8. The team-up flick stars Bullock as Danny Ocean's sister who, along with a crew including Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, and Awkwafina, hatches a plot to raid the Met Gala of its most priceless jewels.
