Dwayne Johnson, the movie legend, has recently weighed in on how many times he showers each day after stars such as Ashton Kutcher, Kristen Bell, and Jake Gyllenhaal said they could do without taking a daily shower!
“Nope, I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves celeb,'” Dwayne wrote on Twitter.
He explains that his showers go from freezing cold to wake him up in the morning, to hot and relaxing after a long day of work and his followers were ecstatic to hear it.
“This is exactly what I would expect from a legend,” one said. While another said: “We all know you can carry a tune, sir. You’re not one to half-ass anything.”
His tweet came after a fan asked him if he was one of those “stinky” celebs, and his response was just…well it was how The Rock would respond.
The bathing debate started when Ashton and Mila appeared on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast saying that they barely clean their children.
“Now here’s the thing, if you can see the dirt on them, clean them, otherwise, there’s no point,” Ashton announced.
Mila even added: “When I had children, I also didn’t wash every day. I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns ever.”
And even Kristen backed them: “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink,” she said. “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.”
Kristen added, “Honestly, it’s just bacteria; once you get bacteria, you gotta be like, ‘Get in the tub or the shower.’ So I don’t hate what [Mila and Ashton] are doing. I wait for the stink.”
And if that wasn’t enough people who admitted to not feeling the urge to shower as often as recommended, Jake Gyllenhaal was next to admit he stays on top of his oral hygiene, but not always on top of the regular showers.
“More and more, I find bathing to be less necessary at times,” he told Vanity Fair. “I do believe because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do brush my teeth.”
So, it looks like everyone has their own way of showering…
But, as for the Rock, he’s not one of those “stinky celebs.”
