When it comes to keeping skin in top condition, Cate Blanchett admits she’s willing to try anything — even a treatment that’s been nicknamed the “penis facial.”
As the Oscar-winning actress shared with Vogue Australia (as reported by the Daily Mail), she and her “Ocean’s 8” co-star Sandra Bullock decided to try the skin-rejuvenation treatment while filming in New York City.
“Sandy [Sandra] Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial,” Blanchett explained.
“It’s something — I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm — there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.”
Speaking to the Mail, Georgia Louise explained “penis facial” has garnered that partciular “street name” in Hollywood because it utilizes stem cells cultivated from the foreskins of Korean baby boys.
“It’s a tremendous treatment but the ‘street name’ for it is hilarious,” says Louise, whose celebrity clientele includes such stars as Emma Stone, Katy Perry and Alexander Wang.
“Poor Cate, I don’t know how she’s going to cope with all the reaction,” joked Louise. “I’ve heard some people say, ‘Oh, she’s got c** on her face!’ That’s obviously not the case but yes… ridiculous.”
