(Newser) – The secret to Tom Cruise's boyish good looks? Bird poop. The actor indulges in a expensive facials in which nightingale excrement is mixed with rice bran and water, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. "Tom doesn't go in for Botox or surgery but he does pay close attention to all the new and popular natural treatments," says a Now magazine source, who adds that "the results have been fantastic."

Cruise is "proud" of himself for taking the natural route, the source continues. "Tom doesn't see splashing out on the facials as him being vain or weird—in fact, he points out there are much wackier fads out there." Jessica Simpson once tried the same treatment.
