Gisele Bundchen takes on the Sun and off the Sunscreen

Gisele Bundchen is at it again. This time, the Brazilian Goddess of the sun is attacking one of it's worshipers, sunscreen companies.  

She was quoted as saying:

'I cannot put this poison on my skin,' the 30-year-old said. 'I do not use anything synthetic.'
Bundchen claims she only exposes herself to the sun before 8am when it's still too weak to do any damage. Nerds of the world, combine your powers to bring down the wicked Large Mouther Witch of the Southern Hemisphere and find pictures proving this wrong.  

Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if Ms. Gisele could tell the sun off and make it go back to 8am.  Remember your place you big ball of gas!

The National Cancer Institute of Brazil obviously had something to say about Gisele's new foot in mouth comment.  
"Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer. This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion."
Now maybe she does follow the 8am rule. If I made gazillions off of my looks, I would hide under a rock if I needed to. But something tells me, like her tan lines, that 8am is just not happening.

Maybe sunscreen is full of nasty shit, like everything else. But something inside me says that cancer is much nastier.  Ah well, to each there own.  


  1. Guess the main problem about that comment is what the National Cancer Institute of Brazil said about creating confusion; I want to see how many gullible teenagers and early 20somethings start messing up their skin by not wanting to "put that poison" on. Silly Gi, if only she realized not all are blessed with her looks, cash and "brains" to have such a correct, healthy, perfect lifestyle!

  2. She drives me crazy , i dont understand how people listen to her and love her!!

    Interesting that she was working for nivea sunscreen a while ago and she was in every magazine and on tv with her sunscreen on her face and holding the product !!! but now that she has her own line of "natural" creams and lotions she is against sunscreen!!! wow she is a scam

    She also made millions working for Blackglama (real fur coats made by minks) and then she says how much she loves animals etc

    yeah right! she loves her money!!!

  3. **SIGH**
    Someone needs to tape her mouth shut before she says anything else.

  4. Hey Girl!
    Nominated you for The Versatile Blogger award. Check it for details!

  5. This is a publicity stunt, she has her own line of non synthetic Sun Screen lotions... :)

  6. Maybe she gotta a point. If you can choose something natural over something that has chemical, why not?

  7. She does but she doesn't have to be such a stinker about it. She did the same thing with breastfeeding and natural births. She makes it out like you are a total ass for not doing it the way she does. And let's be honest, she doesn't quite lead the life the rest of us do. She has a lot more things at her finger tips.

    I mean, making a statement about how women should breastfeed sound bitchy is quite a feat. Someone needs to contact her English teacher and get her some classes. Girl is coming off bitchy

  8. I smell jealousy here...LOL I know Brady is hot but it's not her fault. Come on, give her a break! Hahaha

  9. Not really. Tom Brady is hot but not my type. I just feel she can give a message without making it condescending or make people feel bad. She really got under my skin with her comments on weight gain and pregnancy. You do not have to attack people who do things differently than you. She got a lot of press for those comments. I'm sure you heard about them

  10. I never have understood the attraction to Gisele. She is too skinny, not that attractive and seems to have an uber Patricinha attitude. There are so many much more beautiful women walking around Rio with much more down to earth attitudes. I guess it is the fashion industry's fault for worshiping anorexic size -000 models. Her disconnect with reality is amazing. I just don't get it.

  11. I agree. However, we need to consider the market fashion companies cater: North American and European.

  12. Honestly, I don't think her look goes for North America. Maybe its a European thing.

    Rachel just ignore her. She's a model. After she gets old and her man gets benched for being too hurt then what does she have left. She clearly can't rely on that personality. ;~) Hopefully, she's smart with money.

  13. I just don't even understand why she would say this. Hand me the SPF45 please.
