Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t believe bathing is necessary as according to him it’s helpful for “skin maintenance” to allow the body to generally clean itself.
“More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” Gyllenhaal said the source.
He added: “I do believe because Elvis Costello is wonderful, those 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 40-year-old actor made the statements after a discussion about cleanliness was commenced by actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who lately confessed they don’t bathe their children until they can “see dirt” on them. The discussion started during arrival on the show.
Kunis explained that she hardly ever had a shower growing up as a child because they didn’t have hot water at home.
“I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway. But when I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns ever.”
Kutcher then added: “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
Shepard later contributed to the question with his wife and actress Kristen Bell, as the couple disclosed they also don’t bathe their children every day.
