Glen Powell Talks About The Viral Cannibal Dating Story

Glen Powell just dropped a story on the “Therapuss with Jake Shane” podcast that had fans clutching their pearls and clutching their lotion bottles, but spoiler alert: it turns out to be a whopper of an urban legend.

Our man Glen, a sprightly 35-year-old actor, has come forward to respond to the internet detectives who unearthed the truth about his spine-chilling tale.

So, here’s the yarn he spun on the podcast: “You want to hear something wild? My little sister had this friend who went on a date with this guy. They’re vibing, he’s got that Prince Charming act down pat. They end up at his place, and he’s like, ‘Hey, how about a massage?’” (As one does after a first date, right?)

Things start to get all “Twilight Zone” when she steps into his apartment. Cue the creepy background music. “So he starts giving her a shoulder rub, but something feels… off,” Glen shared. “She’s thinking, ‘I gotta bounce outta here.’ But he’s all, ‘Please don’t go!’ She nopes out of there anyway.”

Then, the plot thickens. The next day, her skin’s itching like she rolled in poison ivy. Off to the doctor she goes, and here’s where things get bonkers. The doc does some tests and, lo and behold, she’s got black market lotion on her. This isn’t just any lotion – it’s lotion designed to turn skin into a tasty snack. Yes, the dude was prepping her for a Hannibal Lecter-style dinner. The doctor’s like, “Girl, spill the address and call the cops!” They roll up to this guy’s place and it’s basically a horror movie set with extra bodies.

Fans were either losing their minds or rolling their eyes, claiming they’d seen this tale on Reddit back when Y2K was the big scare. Internet sleuths dug up versions of this story dating back to 2001, proving Glen’s sister’s pal was serving up an urban legend with a side of melodrama.

Glen, realizing he’s been had, took to X (formerly known as Twitter because rebranding is a thing), and said, “Shoutout to my sister’s friend for feeding me this epic dating horror story. I’ve been peddling this nonsense for years. Now I’m questioning everything. False alarm. Back rubs are safe again.”
