Hollywood has gotten smelly – and half of Americans think it’s time for some celebs to take a shower. 

In our recent poll of 1,002 Americans, conducted on Aug. 9, we found that 51% are not in favor of celebrities Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Jake Gyllenhaal’s bathing habits, saying it’s an absolute must to shower regularly. 

Meanwhile, 31% said it’s not necessary to shower daily. Thirty-five percent of those who think cleanliness is vital said they shower every day, while 15% do so every other day. 

Only 8% of respondents take showers once a week, and a mere 4% like to soap up more than twice a day

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is also a fan of taking multiple showers a day. The “Fast and Furious” star shared on Twitter on Aug. 6 that he bathes up to three times a day.

“Nope, I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb. Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work. Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower,” he wrote.

Twenty-five percent of our survey respondents acknowledged that breaking a sweat is an indicator to hit the water. Others said they shower after noticing they have greasy hair and smell unpleasant (both at 33%). 

Many people (32%) said they’re “too busy to take a shower, while 53% said they always make room for good hygiene no matter what.

Doing it for the kids?

And when it comes to kids’ bathing habits, 84% of parents of children ages 0 to 9 who were surveyed said bath time is a “crucial” part of their daily routine

However, celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have different perspectives on bathing their children. 

The couple recently made headlines when they revealed on ABC’s “The View” on Aug. 3 that they wait for the “stink” before bathing their kids, Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6. 

“I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink,” Bell said. “Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know, you need to clean it up.”

The couple followed suit after Kutcher and Kunis went on Shepard’s podcast “Armchair Expert,” saying they only clean up their kids when “you can see dirt on them.” 

“Otherwise, there’s no point,” Kutcher said. 

While 63% of parents agree with this celebrity approach toward bathing, a quarter disagree. 

The data showed 35% of parents prioritize bath time for their young children by sticking them in the shower seven or more times a week, especially when they’re sweaty (37%) and smelly (32%). 

Overall, 69% of parents shared that good hygiene is essential for their little ones, saying they bathe their children more than they do themselves.
