When will Jake Gyllenhaal bathe next? Maybe the day after tomorrow.
The SoulCycle enthusiast isn’t a fan of post-workout showers — or washing in general.
“More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” Gyllenhaal, 40, told Vanity Fair Thursday while, believe it or not, promoting Prada’s Luna Rossa Ocean fragrance.
“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.”
The actor said he is always “baffled that loofahs come from nature” because they “feel like they’ve been made in a factory but, in fact, it’s just not true.”
Gyllenhaal is only the latest celebrity to dish on their non-frequent bathing rituals.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard revealed Tuesday that they often forget to bathe their daughters, with the “Frozen” actress, 41, joking that she waits for Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6, to “stink” before cleaning them.
“Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up,” Bell said on “The View.”
Meanwhile, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher said last month that they only gave baths to their kids, Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4, as infants when they could “see the dirt on them.”
