Outside hui, inside pfui. When a celebrity appears on the red carpet, it glitters and shines. Behind it is usually a whole team full of stylists, make-up artists and assistants to make the star look like a million dollars. But: The appearance can be deceiving.
Although many of them look absolutely flawless, you should not get too close to some celebrities, she could stink. This is because some celebrities don’t take their personal hygiene quite as seriously and don’t shower for days.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Lack of personal hygiene in Hollywood first caused astonishment at the end of July when Mila Kunis (37) and Ashton Kutcher (43) revealed that they only wash their children when they “see dirt on them”.
“When I was little, I didn’t wash myself every day either,” Kunis recently said on Dax Shepard’s US podcast “Armchair Expert.” “And I wasn’t the mother who bathed my newborns – never.” Kutcher added, “If you can see the dirt on them, you have to wash them. Otherwise, it doesn’t make sense.”
And herself? “I don’t wash myself with soap every day,” Kunis continues. She only cleans her genital area and breasts. Husband Ashton Kutcher is very similar with physical hygiene: he only cleans the armpits and the crotch.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell
Just a week later, Dax Shepard (46) and his wife Kristen Bell (41) appeared on the US talk show “The View” and shared their own feelings on the subject.
“We bathed our kids every night before bed as a routine, then somehow they started falling asleep on their own without their routine and we had to say, ‘Hey, when was the last time? Did you bathe them?'” shepard said.
“I’m a big fan of waiting for that certain stench. Once you notice a whiff, this is the way biology does to let you know you need to wash it. This is a warning signal,” Bell explained.
“Honestly, it’s just because of bacteria. As soon as the bacteria come, you have to say: ‘Go to the tub or to the shower’.”
Wash daily? Completely unnecessary, says Jake Gyllenhaal (40). He sometimes finds daily hygiene dispensable. “I am more and more of the opinion that bathing is unnecessary,” he told the magazine “Vanity Fair”. The renunciation is good for the skin. “We clean ourselves naturally,” Gyllenhaal is sure.
Funny: He made the statement when he introduced Prada’s new perfume last week, because he advertises Prada’s new Luna Rossa Ocean fragrance. On the other hand, he does not forget to brush his teeth.
Brad Pitt’s (56) “Inglourious Basterds” co-star, Eli Roth (49), told People Magazine that Pitt gave him some interesting advice on how to stay clean while filming on set.
“He shared that if you sweat and don’t have time to shower, you just take a baby scarf and rub it under your armpits,” Roth said.

To explain why he doesn’t take a shower and instead reaches for a damp cloth, Pitt allegedly told Roth, “I have six children. All you have to do is just take some wipes with you. Man, I get peed on almost every day. I don’t have time to shower.”
Does he still take that as a reason today as a single?
In an interview with “Extra”, Robert Pattinson (35) was asked if it was true that he had not washed his hair for six weeks. The “Twilight” actor replied: “Probably. I don’t know. I don’t really see the point in washing the hair.”
His unpleasant body odor was already discussed during filming times of the “Twilight” saga. At the time, an insider told Vulture Magazine: “He stinks. I mean, it’s terrible. He never showers and that drives people crazy on set.”
He also didn’t change his clothes, because he believed that paparazzi wouldn’t bother him. “He’s smart, because if he doesn’t change his mind and the paparazzi get pictures of him in the same outfit all the time, they can’t sell the picture,” his colleague Peter Facinelli (47) told Vulture at the time.
