Not the most intelligent statement she’s ever made. In fact, she’s full of zingers these days. Three months after giving birth to her son Benjamin in December 2009, she told Vogue “I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals.” While on her pedestal – she also proclaimed that breastfeeding should be a “worldwide law”. “It’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard,” Bethenny Frankel, who had daughter Bryn six months after Bundchen gave birth, snapped to UsMagazine.com. “Breastfeeding is one of the most rewarding experiences, but it isn’t for everyone.”
Don’t hate her because she’s beautiful. Rather, people attack Gisele Bundchen, 30, for the controversial things she says.
“I cannot put this poison on my skin,” Bundchen — who has appeared in ad campaigns for Nivea Sun products — said at the launch of her own organic skin care range, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. “I do not use anything synthetic.”
Instead, the leggy beauty says she protects herself from sun damage by only exposing herself to rays before 8 A.M.
However, cancer experts have been quick to question Bundchen’s expertise on the matter.
“Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer,” said Dolival Loao, head of dermatology at Brazil’s National Cancer Institute. “This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion.”
Poison!? Seriously? Tell that to all the people suffering from melanoma? How is Gisele’s advice any greater than every other dermatologist in America. Is she nuts? Maybe the sun has gone to hear head.
PS: I like how she claims she only goes out in the sun before 8:00AM. Really. So explain all the thousands of paparazzi pictures of her in a bikini soaking up the sun.
