One of the latest trends in celebrity health has sparked a lot of controversy. Many celebrities have shared unusual bathing habits, including Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, claiming that they only bathe their children when dirt is visible. Once upon a time … in Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have also reportedly skipped the showers for various personal reasons.
Why Does Brad Pitt Not Lax Hygiene Habits?
When someone is in the spotlight as much as Pitt, a lot of people would naturally assume that they are bathing as much as possible. After all, he is regularly photographed and quite often comes into contact with other personalities.
So what does the actor have to say about his showering habits – or more precisely, his absence? According to The Things, the reason he has such lax hygiene habits makes sense. Pitt has such a busy schedule that there isn’t always time for a good shower.
That being said, after a long, sweaty day on set, the actor sometimes prefers to clean up with baby wipes. A co-star once said that Pitt told her the best way to cool off when time is limited is to “just take a baby wipe and rub it under your armpits.” At any rate !
Leonardo DiCaprio also avoids swimming
Pitt’s co-star DiCaprio in Once upon a time … in Hollywood. So what’s her reason for avoiding the simple act of soaping and rinsing daily? Softpedia News says his rationale is a little different from Pitt’s. While Pitt avoids bathing simply because of time restrictions, it turns out that the former Titanic star does this because of environmental concerns.
DiCaprio has adopted an eco-friendly lifestyle and apparently believes the best way to do this is to skip the bath as much as possible. According to the actor’s former girlfriend, Erin Heatherton, it’s pretty extreme. She says not only does he avoid simple soap and water, but skips the deodorant under his arms to be as natural as possible.
There are other swimming options
Maybe someone needs to tell Pitt and DiCaprio that they have other options. The right to shower reports that there is the alternative of switching to a different shower head – which is environmentally friendly and preserves water. What can someone do if they are running out of time? Plan more accordingly! The average shower is 8 minutes. Cut to 5 minutes moving a little faster. Still need more ideas? Use baking soda instead of deodorant, or turn the water heater down just a touch. You will hardly notice the difference!
