Jake Gyllenhaal Apparently Doesn't Bathe Often, And I Wish He Would Have Mentioned That Before I Developed A Debilitating Crush On Him

The hottest new Hollywood trend is not bathing often.

Here we go again. Another day, another confusing quote from a celebrity about bathing.

Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest famous person to reveal their personal bathing habits.

During an interview with Vanity Fair to talk about being the fragrance face for Prada's Luna Rossa Ocean Cologne, the actor was asked about his shower routine, and boy oh boy did he answer the question.

"More and more, I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere," he shared. "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."

Well, at least he brushes his teeth regularly. He had me worried for a second there.

Jake's comments come after a week of celebrity soundbites talking about not bathing.

First, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher revealed they don't wash their kids until "you can see dirt on them."

Then Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard doubled down and said they "wait for the stink."

So I'm not sure what's going down in Hollywood, but I can't wait to find out what other celebrities have interesting shower routines. Ryan Gosling, I'm looking at you!
