Personal hygiene is very important. Nobody wants to be around someone who smells or looks dirty, and the general expectation is that people stay fresh on a daily basis. The average person would probably assume that celebrities are especially obsessed with their hygiene. In the entertainment industry, where looks and impressions are everything, you would probably imagine that it’s extra important for stars to make sure that their always looking and smelling good. But apparently, that isn’t always the case. There are some celebrities whose personal hygiene – or lack thereof – would make you cringe, and you’ll never guess which stars have been accused of being a little funky. Here are 10 Hollywood actors you’d be surprised have poly hygiene.
Russell Crowe usually looks pretty nice whenever he’s out and about attending all of the hottest events, but apparently looks can be deceiving. For years, there have been rumors suggesting that Crowe doesn’t believe in wearing deodorant or cologne, and as a result, many people have said that he has a serious body odor problem. According to the late Joan Rivers, “He has a body odor problem. I prefer to sit downwind of him at showbiz bashes.”

Best-known for his role in the Twilight film series, Robert Pattinson has girls falling at his feet, but would that still be the case if his fans knew about his poor personal hygiene? Probably not. Back in 2009, Pattinson revealed some pretty gross news when he stated, “it gets to the point where even I can’t stand the air around me. I don’t know, my personal hygiene – it’s so disgusting.” Um, yeah – disgusting is right. Although reports say that his hygiene has since improved, only a nose knows the truth about this one.

Unlike Pattinson, Johnny Depp has never proudly admitted to having poor hygiene, but according to sources, Depp is far from clean. According to sources, Depp does not like to shower regularly, and as a result – he tends to smell pretty bad. Everybody knows that Depp’s schedule is usually ridiculously busy, but is he really too busy to squeeze in a shower? Doubt it.

Cameron Diaz is probably one of the last people you’d expect not to be on her P’s and Q’s when it comes to personal hygiene. As one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, you’d think smelling good would be essential, but apparently, Diaz isn’t willing to risk her health for the sake of her hygiene. According to Diaz, “I don’t believe in antiperspirants. It’s really bad for you. I haven’t used it for almost 20 years.” Well, hopefully she’s found some sort of natural remedy because if not, things could get a little serious in those armpits.

You’d like to think that when most people smell bad, it’s because they don’t know. But that’s not the case for Matthew McConaughey, who apparently loves his own smell so much that he doesn’t really like to change it by taking showers. According to McConaughey, “I don’t like to smell like someone or something else. Just like I don’t want a big name on the back of my jeans or a big label on my jacket. If [my smell] starts to bother someone, I’ll take a shower.” Well, on the bright side, at least he’s considerate of others and their sense of smell.

Megan Fox is hot, but she has no problem admitting that she can also be a hot mess. Although you’d probably expect Fox to be one of those people who is obsessed with keeping herself and everything around her neat and clean, she claims that that isn’t the case. According to Fox, “’I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, ‘Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.” Well, if you ever find yourself at Megan Fox’s house at least you’ll know what to expect if you need to use her bathroom.

As half of one of Hollywood’s hottest couples, a father, and a Hollywood superstar, Brad Pitt has a lot on his plate. With that being said, of course there’s a few things that slip through the cracks, but daily upkeep just shouldn’t be one of them. According to several sources, Pitt tends to smell a little rank because he doesn’t like to shower. Some sources even say that when he does shower, he uses some sort of natural soap that doesn’t leave him smelling fresh.

Who would ever expect America’s sweetheart to stink? Probably no one, but Julia Roberts doesn’t seem to care. One of Roberts’ former bodyguards has shared that she doesn’t shower often because she wants to save water. As a result, she tends to smell like a “hippie.” Even if you’ve never smelled a hippie you can probably guess that isn’t meant to be a compliment. It’s great that Roberts wants to save water, but hopefully she doesn’t try to get too close to people.

Okay seriously, what’s up with famous people and not showering? Orlando Bloom is yet another star who goes for long periods of time without showering, except he also goes for long periods of time without washing his clothes. Yeah, he doesn’t stand a chance – and neither does anybody standing in a 10 foot radius.

If you’re going to be opposed to showering, you should probably do everything in your power to not sweat. Well, Zac Efron clearly didn’t get that memo. According to sources, Efron doesn’t like to shower – even after playing basketball. Instead of hopping in the shower, he prefers to wipe himself down with a towel. Somebody should really tell him that soap and water are kind of essential to staying clean.
