What’s that smell??
There’s a washclothless war brewing in Hollyweird where proudly unwashed celebs are revealing their musty malevolence despite having access to the finest soaps, loofahs, body-cleansing cloths and showers in the whole entire world.
For reasons that remain unknown, A-lister Jake Gyllenhaal, along with Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, recently woke up, splashed water on their barely-washed bodies and happily blabbered about their very questionable hygiene habits in a stressful trend causing that lingering odor on social media.
Things got so musty that The Rock felt the need to speak out and confirm that he showers regularly.

“I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb,” he tweeted Friday. “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work.”
Jason Momoa also made it known that he has a great relationship with water unlike his unwashed peers.
“I’m not starting any trends, I shower, trust me,” Momoa told Access. “I shower, I’m Aquaman. I’m in the f**king water. Don’t worry about it. I’m Hawaiian. We got saltwater on me. I’m good.”

In an almost obligatory video, Chris Evans joined the growing list of celebs on the right side of hygiene history.
And, most recently, Cardi B chimed in with her reactions to Hollyweird’s shower-less shenanigans in Hollywood.
Wassup with people saying they don’t shower ? 🤨 It’s giving itchy.

“Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy,” she tweeted after several stars admitted to skipping showers, baths and deodorant.
Are there any other celebs who haven’t publicly addressed their hygiene habits but you suspect don’t wash? Tell us down below and check out the most questionably hygiened celebs on the flip.
Hollyweird’s recent TMI tirade can be traced back to the star’s recent Vanity Fair interview where he revealed his fading interest in bathing.
“I always am baffled that loofahs come from nature. They feel like they’ve been made in a factory, but, in fact, it’s just not true. Since I was young, it’s amazed me. More and more, I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” he admitted.
“I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that. But I do also think that there’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.”
Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
On a soap-less episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert,” Ashton and Mila came clean (well, not really) about their very questionable hygiene routines.
“I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway. But when I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns – ever,” she admitted, with Ashton adding, “Now, here’s the thing: if you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
The pair went on to admitted they don’t like to bathe very much. Ashton claimed, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else.”
The Grammy-winning actor has always had a rustic appearance as one of Hollyweird’s hunkiest heartthrobs who famously advised “Inglorious Basterds” costar Eli Roth that baby wipes were the way to avoid getting “ripe” from not showering.
“I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take [baby wipes], a couple quick wipes under the pits,” he said. I’m getting [peed] on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.”
In 2014, Brad’s natural smell drove Jennifer Lawrence‘s Oscars date Laura Simpson to blog about their encounter at the Academy Awards bar.
“Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing, and he tells us, ‘I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.’ I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind.”
Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
On a now viral episode of “The View,” the couple revealed their, uh, unconventional hygiene habits.
“We bathed our children every single night — prior to bed is like the routine,” said Shepard. “And then somehow, they just started going to sleep on their own without the routine, and by George, we had to start saying, ‘Hey, when’s the last time you bathed them?'”
Bell hopped in “Yeah, we forget.”
Shepard then noted that “sometimes five, six days” pass without his kids being washed but they don’t smell.
“Well, they do sometimes,” admitted Bell. “Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up.”
“There’s a red flag, because honestly, it’s just bacteria,” she added. “And once you get the bacteria, you gotta be like, ‘Get in the tub or the shower.’ So I don’t hate what they’re doing. I wait for the stink.”
The Grammy-winning superstar set off a funky firestorm when she revealed that she doesn’t wash her legs in the shower.
“When you shave your legs, the shaving cream is like soap, right?” she asked during her appearance on “Ellen.”
Naturally. Ellen asked her to clarify whether her legs are ignored when she’s not shaving.
“I kind of always shave my legs,” said Swift to which Ellen responded: “You must be hairy.”
The Oscar-winning actress once told Oprah that she doesn’t use deodorant because “it’s just never been my thing” which matches what her bodyguard reportedly said about her ‘environment-friendly’ hygiene.
“She’ll go days without showering. She likes to save water — she’s really green,” he reportedly told Star. She likes the smell of her natural oils,” he added.
The Oscar-winning actor admitted that he hasn’t worn deodorant in 20 years after being named “Sexiest Man Alive” by the popular publication in 2005.
“I don’t like to smell like someone or something else,” he said, adding, “If my smell starts to bother someone else, I’ll take a shower.”
While filming 2008’s “Fool’s Gold,” co-star Kate Hudson had enough and tried to convince him to wear deodorant (or something, anything).
“She always brings a salt rock, which is some natural deodorant, and says, ‘Would you please put this on?’ I just never wore it. No cologne, no deodorant.”
The lovable star revealed that she hasn’t used antiperspirant “for almost 20 years” in an interview with E! News in 2014.
“It’s really bad for you,” she claimed. “Just trim your armpit hair so it doesn’t hold onto the scent.”
The buxom blonde went from defending her eyebrow-raising parenting choices to admitting something that maybe she didn’t want to admit during a recent chat with E! News’ Daily Pop.
Coco T says she doesn’t bathe everyday only when she feels “icky” and she can go up to 3 days without showering.

“Well, I don’t shower every day,” she admitted Coco said matter-of-factly. “I do what’s needed. My hair—I wash my hair every four days. Yeah, but when I’m feeling icky, I’ll get in the shower. Whether that’s every day, that may be, but that could be every three days. I kinda keep myself clean, though. Like, if I feel like my pits smell or something, I just take some washcloths and some soap to it. I might not have to clean my whole body.
