JEWISH Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal stinks, or so it would seem.
Oh, that’s not a commentary on his acting, or even his character. Gyllenhaal, it would seem, is not terribly fond of bathing. The irony is he made comments to that effect to Vanity Fair while promoting a new Prada fragrance.
“More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” he said.
“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.” Ewww.
It would also seem the Spiderman: Far From Home actor is not the only one of our tribe in Hollywood to have professed a casual dismissal of proper hygiene practices.
Mila Kunis has said she only cleans, in her words, “pits and t**s and holes and soles” while her children only get bathed “if you can see the dirt on them”, in husband Ashton Kutcher’s words.
And Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly isn’t a fan of bathing either, according to InStyle. Frankly, just writing this makes yours truly feel dirty – I’m off to have a shower.
