Just a few short weeks after marrying Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel (with a stunning wedding ring), Miranda Kerr is back in the headlines. This time for a kooky beauty treatment she tried involving 鈥 get this, leeches.

鈥淚鈥檝e had a leech facial,鈥 the model said, revealing the surprising service during Gwyneth Paltrow鈥檚 Goop Health Summit in Culver City, California. And what鈥檚 weirder is she still has the little creatures. 鈥淚 kept the leeches, they鈥檙e in my koi pond,鈥 she said. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e not allowed to reuse them and if you don鈥檛 take them home then she kills them and I didn鈥檛 like that idea.鈥

According to People, Kerr explained, 鈥淚t鈥檚 adventurous. Health is wealth. They鈥檝e been doing leech therapy for thousands of years.鈥 Which is true; leeches have been used in a variety of ways for a long time, though mainly for the antiquated practice of bloodletting for illness.
