Actors Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller were trained by renowned chef Marcus Wareing to cook haute cuisine dishes while filming the new hit movie "Burnt." Because the actors suffered from burns while filming in the professional kitchen, Topical BioMedics was inspired to launch its “Don’t Feel the Burnt” contest to win tubes of its MyPainAway After-Burn Cream for treating culinary mishaps.

Safe, natural MyPainAway After-Burn Cream offers rapid, soothing relief of cooking burns as well as sunburn, windburn, blisters, friction burns, chafing, and itching

Being a chef is one of the hottest jobs in the world

Released nationwide on Friday, October 30th, the film “Burnt” stars Bradley Cooper as obsessive, hot-headed top chef and restaurateur Adam Jones and Sienna Miller as his sous chef Helene. Because the actors got burned during the course of filming, Topical BioMedics, Inc. was inspired to launch the “Don’t Feel the Burnt” contest to win tubes of the company’s MyPainAway After-Burn Cream formula.

Aurora Paradise, chief operations officer, says, “When I heard that the actors suffered from numerous burns making the movie, I wished they had our safe, natural MyPainAway After-Burn Cream on the set to stop the pain and help them heal. That’s why we are giving everyone a chance to win our formula to have on hand for any of their own culinary mishaps.”    

The “Don’t Feel the Burnt” contest may be entered by clicking the following link, and contestants will be invited to share their own cooking burn story. There is no purchase necessary, and six winners will be selected at random to win a 6 oz. tube of MyPainAway After-Burn Cream (retail value $19.99, with 3% sales donated to burn centers ).

The actors were trained to play their roles authentically and hone their culinary skills with coaching from acclaimed Michelin-starred British Chef Marcus Wareing, who worked for Gordon Ramsay and other top chefs before opening his own renowned restaurants in London. Wareing says, “There was nothing fake about the kitchen. I had to get people dirty and sweaty to make it look like they’ve been working 12-hour days.” His goal was for everything to be realistic: “I want to see the cooks cooking. I want to see the stoves on. I want to see them seasoning. I want to see them tasting. I want to see them burning themselves. That’s how a kitchen is.”

Cooper said of the filming of Burnt, “There is the intensity of the kitchen in the movie. Massive amounts of pressure, time pressure. It’s hot and dangerous, and you better keep up. There’s a lot of burning. Yeah, we got hurt.”

Miller concurs: “Being a chef is one of the hottest jobs in the world. It’s really hard, and the environment is challenging. I have the badge of a few scars to prove it.”

Directed by John Wells, “Burnt” also features Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson, Daniel Bruhl, Lily James, Matthew Rhys and Jamie Dornan.
