If you've ever fantasized about getting up close and personal with a sexy celebrity, here's something to turn your dreams into nightmares: some of them are straight up slobs. Despite being able to afford the most expensive soaps, deodorants and perfumes imaginable, these celebrities are a bigger mess than the this years's election cycle. Here are 11 celebrities who are surrounded by bad hygiene rumors like a cartoon stink cloud. Gross.
1. Matthew McConaughey
You know he hates shirts, but guess what? Matthew McConaughey hates deodorant even more. While filming Fool’s Gold in 1998, Kate Hudson reportedly begged her costar to cover his stank for their love scenes. She even bought him some deodorant, but he declined her offer. McConaughey said he doesn't “like to smell like someone or something else” and added that women (besides Kate Hudson) love his natural aroma. His chill hygiene practices apparently haven't changed in the years since. He reportedly stunk up the cars with B.O. when he was filming those weird Lincoln commercials. Alright, alright, all wrong.
2. Megan Fox
Lust after Megan Fox all you want, but she'll be the first to tell you she's nasty. She confessed, “I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, 'Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'"
New unattainable beauty goal: Be "leave sh*t in the toilet" Pretty.
3. Robert Pattinson
In a 2012 interview with Extra, the Twilight star disclosed that he's dirty, and not in the fun sexy way. When asked if it was true that he hadn't washed his hair for six weeks, Pattinson answered, “Probably. I don’t know. I don’t really see the point in washing your hair. If you don’t care if your hair’s clean or not then why would you wash it?” he continued. “It’s like, I don’t clean my apartment ’cause I don’t care. I have my apartment for sleeping in and I have my hair for just, you know, hanging out on my head. I don’t care if it’s clean or not.”
Dang, R-Patts DGAF!
4. Cameron Diaz
There's just something about pit stains. Cameron Diaz has developed a rep for being sweaty af on the red carpet, and she's owning it. The star admitted she hasn't used deodorant in 20 years. She also said she wears the same clothes four days in a row and then throws them away. Damn, Cam.
5. Bradley Cooper
In disappointing hunk news, Bradley Cooper has also hopped on the no deodorant bandwagon. In an interview with Esquire, Cooper revealed that he does not wear deodorant because the body “self-cleans.” Maybe it only self cleans if you're a celebrity, cause it's not working for people who ride the NYC Subway system.
6. Jessica Simpson
Don't worry, everyone, Jessica Simpson's pits smell just fine. It's what's happening in her mouth that has everyone cringing. While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Simpson confessed that she only brushes her teeth a few times a week. Her excuse? "My teeth are so white and I don't like them to feel too slippery... but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday," she told DeGeneres. "But I don’t brush them everyday. I’ll use a shirt or something ... I know it's gross, but I always have fresh breath."
While her kids might like this brand of dental hygiene, using a shirt to wipe off your teeth instead of brushing them is recommended by zero out of five dentists.
Jennifer Aniston, if you're reading this (and of course you are), you will be glad to know that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reportedly “live like a couple of hobos, with pizza boxes around them, food left out to spoil, and toothpaste and crayon marks on the walls. It’s actually pretty disgusting.”
The couple's employees have allegedly complained that the six Jolie-Pitt kids run buck wild, and that no one in the family bathes regularly (although Brad's been known to brag about using baby wipes to clean himself between showers).
Can't they just hire someone to hose them off once in a while?
8. Christina Aguilera
When Christina sang about being dirty, everyone thought she was talking about boning, but perhaps she was being literal. Hanna Hooper of the band Grouplove told CBS local that Xtina smells like hot dogs. It's such a random rumor to start that it must be true. Right? “I have friends that lived in Pittsburgh and they grew up around Christina Aguilera and they swear to God that she smells like hot dogs,” Hooper said. “Swear.”
That's not all! Another piece of
juicy nasty gossip about the singer is that she doesn't wash her hands after wiping her hot-dog-scented privates. At least, that's what the bathroom attendant at the swanky LA bar Belly allegedly witnessed. Aguilera supposedly used the toilet and then did NOT wash her hands. Instead, the pop star returned to her table and ate fried calamari and shook hands with all of the unsuspecting fans that approached her table. Now that's Dirty.
9. Anderson Cooper
This one is surprising. Anderson Cooper seems like the kind of dude who's hygiene would be perfectly on point, but he's admitted to wearing the same pair of jeans every day pretty much without ever washing them. "The times I've done it, I've worn them and walked into my shower with them and put some soap on them and then air dried them," he continued. "Isn't that how you are supposed to do it?"
Aww, cute! The rich kid (he's a Vanderbilt) doesn't know how laundry works.
10. Britney Spears
In 2010, Britney Spears' bodyguard Fernando Flores filed a lawsuit against the pop star. Radar obtained the court records, and in them Flores accuses Britney of being Toxic, alleging, "she did not bathe for days on end, did not use deodorant, did not brush her teeth, did not fix her hair, did not wear shoes or socks." Flores went on to list the singer's "obnoxious personal habits" like chain smoking, farting, constant nose picking, and cursing.
She settled out of court, so we'll never truly know if Brit is guilty, or whether "whoever smelt it dealt it."
11. Miley Cyrus
A source revealed to Life and Style magazine that Miley's house smells exactly like you'd imagine it would: "there's dog poop and pee everywhere, old food, pizza boxes, takeout containers, fast-food wrappers and dirty dishes piled up. The combination of all that mixed with the constant weed-smoking and the bong-water spills makes the place smell horrible."
Miley's house smells bad? Least shocking news ever.
12. Russell Crowe
If you think Russell Crowe had a bad attitude, don't worry: his B.O. is even worse. The National Enquirer reported that when filming Cinderella Man, Renée Zellweger complained that Crowe's stanky breath and body odor literally made her ill. She reportedly complained and begged him to clean up his act. When he refused, she insisted on using a body double for anything intimate. The late Joan Rivers backed up Zellweger's claim. Never one to hold back, Rivers said, "he has a body odor problem. I prefer to sit downwind of him at awards shows."
Long story short, Russell Crowe reeks and Joan Rivers was the absolute best.
13. Julia Roberts
This is going to rock your world, but America's sweetheart apparently smells pretty sour. A former bodyguard of the star spilled that “She’ll go days without showering." If that weren't bad enough, Roberts admitted to Oprah that she never uses deodorant. You do the math. No showers + no deodorant = stank city.
Big mistake. Huge.
