We're not sure if this is for real, or if it's just an elaborate Funny or Die prank: Will Ferrell is selling a line of sunscreen products to benefit charity. "Taking the adage 'sex sells' to heart, Will’s three SPF 30 lotions — in Sun Stroke, Sexy Hot Tan and Forbidden Fruit — feature glamour shots of the comedian in various states of undress. 100% of proceeds from Will Ferrell Sunscreen will benefit the charity Cancer for College’s College Willpowered Scholarship Fund, which grants college scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees. As for why he chose to continue his long-time support of the charity with sunscreen, Will explains, 'I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company. And I’ve always hated cancer.'” [StyleWatch]
