Actor Jake Gyllenhaal Reveals He “Finds Bathing To Be Less Necessary” In New Interview

#Roommates, following Hollywood couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, opening up about their bathing habits, popular actor Jake Gyllenhaal appears to also share the belief that regular showering isn’t necessary. During a recent interview, Jake Gyllenhaal was asked about his bathing habits and admitted that he finds the process to be “less necessary” than what many people do.

@VanityFair recently sat down with Academy Award-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal for an in-depth interview, but it’s his eyebrow-raising comments regarding his bathing habits (or in this case lack thereof) that have gone viral on social media. When asked during the interview about his showering ritual, Jake explained that it’s not exactly at the top of his list of things he finds “necessary.”

“More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. 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,” he said. As expected, social media lit up with many questioning his comments, but also wondering why more and more celebrities are admitting to not regularly showering.

As we previously reported, last month during an appearance on the podcast ‘Armchair Expert’ Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis admitted that they don’t bathe their full bodies with soap every day. The conversation started following Mila discussing her laser hair removal process that quickly pivoted to hygiene.

Mila stated, “I don’t wash my body with soap every day. I wash pits and tits, and holes and souls.” Her husband Ashton chimed in adding, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily and nothing else ever.” The couple also said that they didn’t wash her sons, Wyatt, 6, and son Dimitri, 4, every day either.
