Note To Celebrities: Take a Damn Bath

EDVILLE—So, after the disturbing revelation from Ashton Kutcher that he performs daily crotch and pit- washes but doesn’t feel it necessary to clean any other parts of his body—now we’re all debating whether giving up bathing is good for us (and the environment). And while we all know the naughty bits need regular attention, I strongly believe that our other nooks, crannies, hills and dales can benefit from a routine and frequent scrub down. Nothing to me is more sexy than a man smelling of soap and deo. Just saying.

Conserving water and gentle attention to our environment are of course, noble pursuits. The U.S. Department of Energy has recommended low flow shower heads and shorter, cooler showers. They do not, however, encourage folks to completely eschew personal hygiene. In fact, dermatologists recommend regularly scheduled showers—especially when we need to rinse off accumulated allergens, as well as bacteria and viruses.

But everything’s different in La-La Land, apparently. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal says that, “more and more,” he finds bathing “less necessary.” Kristin Bell and her husband say they “wait for the stink” before washing their children. Seems to me, these Hollywood hotshots could all clean up their acts, take a damn shower and use their wealth and influence to educate about the IPCC Climate Change Report.

Some celebrities have found the need to publicly announce that they do, in fact, bathe regularly. Jason Mamoa and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are among those who have confirmed their love of a hot, sudsy shower. And I’m going to recommend that Jason and Dwayne share those showers, to conserve water.

I, for one, willingly volunteer to join them. I’ll even bring my own loofah!
