A few months ago, Jake Gyllenhaal somehow got involved in all of the bathing or not-bathing controversy. What a strange week it was. All the heckling started when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher revealed that they aren’t too big for their kids’ showers or baths. Soon, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard joined in the “wait for the stink” comments on their children, and The Rock came forward with a contrary perspective: no one smells with The Rock is cooking.
The topic quickly got out of hand and soon enough, celebrities were invited to give their take on the bath in interviews to promote films and the like. Yet Jake Gyllenhaal took an interest in the subject during a Vanity Show maintenance, which he did largely to discuss his Prada fragrance campaign. So smelling good was the order of the day and relevant, and there was a seemingly good-humored question about his shower ritual, to which Jake volunteered: “I find more and more that the bath is sometimes less necessary. ” He added, âI believeâ¦ that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do this. But I also think that there is a whole world of not bathing which is also very useful for the maintenance of the skin, and we cleanse ourselves naturally.
In a follow-up interview with The temperature, Jake is there to tell everyone that he is definitely a bather, and he found the series of questions about his showering ritual “a little overwhelming”. here is what he said to clarify:
âI think someone asked me about my bathing routine – which I found a little intrusive. And so my response was that I do everything sometimes. And what I got back is that I don’t batheâ¦ I’ve never been accused of being smelly. Its good. Of course I bathe.
Fair enough. It’s understandable that Jake doesn’t want to talk about his bathing habits, and the whole topic seems awkward. Plus, Jake Gyllenhaal is a bather, end of story.
