Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have an interesting bath time routine for themselves, and their children, and it will have you questioning your daily cleansing habits!
The A-list couple sat down with Dax Shepard for his ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast, where the duo talked everything from cryptocurrency to bathing rituals and it has their fans going nuts!
During the discussion, Shepard argued with his co-host — Monica Padman — about NOT washing her body with soap every day. “You should not be getting rid of all the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day,” he said. Adding, “It’s insane.”
You Gotta Hear This!
Kutcher and Kunis agreed and chimed in about their use of soap (or lack thereof). “I don’t wash my body with soap every day,” the ‘Family Guy’ actress said. She continued, “But I wash pits and tits and holes and soles.” Interestingly, Kunis revealed the habit started as a matter of circumstance. “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child,” she said. Adding, “so I didn’t shower very much anyway.”
Ashton agreed, adding, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that just delivers every time. Nothing else.”
Shockingly, Mila claims the habit continued when she became a mother and didn’t exactly bathe her children every night. “When I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns—ever,” she admitted. “That’s how we feel about our children. We’re like, ‘Oof, something smells,” she continued. Kutcher added, “Here’s the thing—if you can see the dirt on ’em, clean ’em. Otherwise, there’s no point.” The famous couple shares two children, Wyatt (6) and Dimitri (4).
Not The Only Ones!
During the conversation, Shepard noted he and his wife — Kristen Bell — bathed their newborns as a part of their nighttime routine. “We could care less about their cleanliness,” he joked. Adding, “We haven’t washed them since. It’s been like six years.”
The famous couple isn’t the only celebrities to adopt this style of cleanliness. Brad Pitt revealed he is a fan of the baby wipes under the armpits style, telling his ‘Inglourious Basterds’ co-star Eli Roth, “when you’re sweating and don’t have time to take a shower, you just take a baby wipe and rub it under your armpits.” Adding, “I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple of quick wipes under the pits…Man, I’m getting [peed] on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.”
‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson is in the same boat, telling Extra, he once hadn’t washed his hair for six weeks. “Probably. I don’t know. I don’t really see the point in washing your hair,” he admitted.
Obviously, this has sparked a major debate on social media about the proper way to clean your infants, and yourself for that matter. It’s not a new idea to cut back on the deodorant style soaps for your skin, but not using them at all is still quite a foreign concept to many.
