Stars from Julia Stiles to Carmen Electra talk about their sun protection

For solar-powered celebs during the dog days of summer, here’s a real burning question: What’s your SPF?

JULIA STILES (Hamlet)
”I get sunburned easily. I would need, realistically, like a 50 billion sun protection factor.”

JAMES HETFIELD (Metallica)
”On my tattoos, it’s 50; the rest is probably 8.”

CARMEN ELECTRA
”We used to put Crisco all over our bodies and go on the roof. But now I try to wear at least a 10.”

WILL FERRELL (SNL)
”I’m like a 45. I slather it on. I’ll usually miss one spot on my shoulder and end up with a bright red dot.”

MARGARET CHO
”SPF 50. I have the most weirdly uneven tan. I look like a spotted cow [with] these brown arms and a yellow back.”

OWEN WILSON (Shanghai Noon)
”I use 30 on my face and 15 on the rest. I have very Irish skin. I was designed for cold, dreary weather.”

DJ QUALLS (Road Trip)
”Thirty. Who needs skin cancer? My nose is big enough; do I need a big green thing growing off the end of it?”
