Is Glen Powell’s Cannibal Story Real? Did His Sister’s Friend Date One?


You’ll probably eat up this story. Glen Powell shocked the internet with a story about his sister’s friend dating a cannibal. And just like almost everything on the World Wide Web, it was proven to be absolutely false.

Before telling the story, the Hit Man star gave a disclaimer that he had to ask his sister to “fact check” this story about a date that her friend had been on. “The guy’s super charming and they have a great night and she goes back to his apartment that night and he’s like, ‘Hey, can I give you a massage?’” Powell explained on the Therapuss podcast. Although the girl got “weird vibes,” she accepted the offer.

“Everything’s just feeling odd, and she’s like, ‘I’ve got to get out of here,’” Powell explained further. “He gets a little weird, like, ‘No, please don’t leave. Sorry.’”

When she got home, she was supposedly “itching like crazy.” He continued: “[The doctor] does a test on her, and it turns out that it’s, like, a black market lotion that breaks down skin for human consumption,” he alleged. “This man was rubbing lotion on her body to eat her. So, the doctor’s like, ‘You’ve got to give me this person’s address and you should call the police.’ They go to this guy’s house, and he had several girls’ bodies in the house.”

Many netizens questioned if the story was actually true. And drumroll—it isn’t. “This is a recycled story that has been modified and told for years,” one fan replied to a tweet about it. BuzzFeed posted an article about how the story is completely false. The site cited an old tale from Snopes about a girl who went on a date with a necrophiliac, which, over the years, evolved to a story about a girl dating a cannibal.

The Anyone But You actor immediately went to X to respond to the fact-checking claims. “Props to my little sister’s friend who told her this dating story…I’ve been telling this for years. I’m questioning my whole life now… False alarm. Back rubs are back.” Well, just like the plot of Hit Man, you can’t believe everything you see and hear.
