Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has riled the beauty industry by calling sunscreen "poison." Yup, poison. The Daily Mail reports: "'I cannot put this poison on my skin,' the 30-year-old said. 'I do not use anything synthetic.'" Other things Bundchen has said that make people angry: Remember that whole episode about not using drugs during childbirth? And that thing about making breastfeeding a worldwide mandate? For someone who was discovered by her first model agent while eating a Big Mac at McDonald's, Bundchen sure has a lot of preachy stuff to say about what other people ought to use and consume.
