Miranda Kerr out-Gwyneth-Paltrowed-Gwyneth-Paltrow at the inaugural Goop summit in California over the weekend, in what was potentially the most LA exchange that has ever taken place.
The summit, headed by Paltrow, hosted guest speakers who espoused that kale, tomatoes and potatoes are all dangerous to the American diet, and included a live 10 minute face lift with Dr Julius Few, who threaded a needle through a woman’s cheek.
But the final panel, which included Miranda Kerr, Nicole Ritchie, Cameron Diaz and Paltrow herself, explored the different ways in which these women approach wellness.
LISTEN: Holly Wainwright, Monique Bowley and I discuss whether celebrity health advice is ultimately dangerous on the latest episode of Mamamia Out Loud. Post continues below.
That’s when Kerr brought up leeches as though it was no big deal.
“We’re constantly swapping numbers on healers and doctors,” Paltrow laughed, before Kerr said, “Have you tried leech therapy?”
The audience collectively gasped, unsure of whether or not Kerr was straight up trolling them.
“I’ve had a leech facial,” Kerr continued. “I kept the leeches, they’re in my koi pond. You’re not allowed to reuse them, and if you don’t take them home, then she kills them, and I didn’t like that idea.”
(As a side note, what the hell is a ‘koi pond’?)
“It has to be done with a practitioner that’s licensed,” she said. Kerr chose LA Leeches, which, yes, is a place that actually exists in the world.
