Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is the latest celebrity to enter the great bathing debate as he reassured fans that he is ‘the opposite of a “not washing themselves” celeb’.
Following Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s revelation that they only wash their kids when they can ‘see the dirt’, plus Ashton’s declaration that he just washes his armpits and crotch daily ‘and nothing else ever’, it’s become a hot topic.
Kristen Bell then threw her support behind the couple, explaining that she was ‘a big fan of waiting for the stink’ before she cleaned her children.
However, before fans despair that no one in Hollywood washes themselves on the regular, Dwayne Johnson swooped in and shared that he showers not once, not twice, but thrice daily.
Replying to a follower’s tweet in which she shared that her and her work colleagues had been discussing celebrities who shirk showers and had decided he ‘can’t possibly be one of those stinky ones’, Dwayne was happy to reveal his full daily bathing routine.
Quote tweeting his fan, he replied: ‘Nope, I’m the opposite of a “not washing themselves” celeb.
Of course Dwayne Johnson is the cleanest man (probably) in Hollywood (Picture: Disney)
‘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.
‘Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.’
It makes perfect sense for a celebrity that has spent a large part of his career in the gym to be on it with his bathing – but it also makes a refreshing change.
On Thursday, Jake Gyllenhaal revealed that he finds ‘bathing to be less necessary’.
The 40-year-old actor also declared that one of the positive side-effects of not washing is how ‘really helpful’ it can be for ‘skin maintenance’.
Talking to Vanity Fair, off the back of a fragrance campaign, no less, the Spider-Man: Far from Home star, who found fame 20 years ago with Donnie Darko, gave insight into his showering ritual.
‘More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,’ he shared.
‘I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that.’
However, despite assuring us on the toothbrushing front, he then doubled down on his stance that washing is ‘less necessary’, stating: ‘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.’
So there you go. You win some, you lose some.
