Who’s to say that we all keep up with our hygiene as properly as we should? Maybe we skip flossing—and then lie to our dentists. Sometimes we go to bed without taking our makeup off. It’s not a huge deal and it really doesn’t happen all that often.
Sickness is often an excuse to neglect our self-care, too, which makes sense. When we’re surrounded with blankets and cough medicine, the last thing we want to think about is taking a shower or cleaning up an impressive tower of tissues. It’s gross, but it’s pretty short-term. Celebs—on the other hand—should keep themselves in tip-top shape. The second they step out the door, they’re being bombarded with cameras and questions. There is no way for these famed individuals to stop anyone from plastering their pictures all over the Internet.
While it’s got to be tricky to keep up with everything, celebs come into contact with tons of people. Nobody wants to catch a whiff of their BO or go to a house that hasn’t been cleaned in years. Most celebs have more than enough money and could afford to hire someone to take care of their hygiene when they get too busy.
Some of these celebs seem to be far too open and obvious about their hygiene habits—and lack thereof. Let’s get to it!
16 Shia Needs A Shower
Shia LaBeouf isn’t the most mainstream celebrity out there. He has long surpassed his time as a Disney star and is now on to bigger—and weirder—things. This is bound to happen, as nobody sticks with their original child star roles for long. He’s just not what most of us would expect from a former Disney dude!
When LaBeouf was in the process of filming Fury, he refused to shower. This wasn’t just for a quick scene in the World War II flick, though. He didn’t shower for the extent of the movie’s production. There have been rumors stating that his co-stars avoided him when they could and even tried to stay in different hotels than him.
Similarly, Maddie Ziegler—whom LaBeouf starred alongside in a Sia music video—has mentioned his bad BO.
15 Ke$ha—Pee Drinker
Let’s kick this off with some background on Ke$ha’s hygiene. She has openly shared that she has been told that she doesn’t smell so hot. She even said that she thinks she smells like a hobo or like a shrimp on a diaper. We aren’t sure why anyone would admit any of that!
This isn’t actually all that awful when we consider what else this pop star has done. She was very proud of herself when she confessed that she drinks her own pee.
Ke$ha said, “I was told drinking my own pee was good. I was trying to be healthy. Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, 'That is mine!' So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore." That’s one health trend we hope won’t catch on!
14 McConaughey And His Natural Aroma
Most of us will gaze at Matthew McConaughey for days. His shirtless bod and his cool guy vibes will make just about anybody fall head over heels for him. We’re not here to burst anyone’s bubble, but he’s not as dreamy as we all imagine him to be!
For one thing, he admitted to avoiding using cologne and deodorant for more than 20 years. This is gross enough as it is. It’s rumored that he left a Lincoln—which he was in for a commercial—smelling pretty rank.
One of McConaughey’s unlucky co-stars happens to be Kate Hudson. The duo starred in Fool’s Gold together. Hudson went so far as to buy McConaughey a stick of deodorant, which we doubt he used. She requested that he use a salt rock for his BO as well.
13 “Christinka” Aguilera
We can almost completely agree that Christina Aguilera is always looking her best. She seems to be well put together and always rocks the prettiest clothing. Her makeup looks good and she doesn’t skimp on the hair product either.
Though most of us have never come close to smelling this beauty queen, we can assume that she’s got to have a nice aroma. When someone takes such good care of the rest of her appearance, she should smell good, too. It turns out that she smells far from amazing though.
One reporter mentioned that this chick smells like a 12-year-old girl’s bedroom. Yikes! Another rumor came from Hannah Hooper—from Grouplove—who said that Aguilera smells like hot dogs. Regardless of what her actual scent is, we aren’t sure that anyone should buy a perfume designed by her!
12 Roberts Reeks
Julia Roberts is one star who is well-known for good reason! She’s famous for her acting skills and her beauty alike. Some of us may even consider her to be flawless.
Flawless is an exaggeration for literally every person on the planet, no matter how perfect they may seem. Roberts can maintain her hot body and her gorgeous face, but there’s one area where she’s been known to fall short.
One of her bodyguards—after he was no longer a bodyguard for her—explained that Roberts often went days without showering. In another situation, she told Oprah that she doesn’t ever use deodorant. Most of her hygiene-related issues tie back to her environmental concerns with water preservation. Roberts has got to smell pretty rank, as we can imagine! Her good looks can’t save her there.
11 Jessica Simpson—To Brush Or Not To Brush
Jessica Simpson hasn’t always made the best choices over the years. She’s been under plenty of pressure because of her life in the limelight, but that’s common among most stars. While Simpson may appear to be decent as far as her singing skills are concerned, she hasn’t done a good job of keeping up with her self-care. We can blame it on how busy she is because she does happen to be both a mother and a superstar.
In reality, this chick just can’t manage to brush her teeth daily. She mentioned to Ellen DeGeneres that she doesn’t like brushing her teeth every day because it makes them slippery. She claims that she just wipes them with a tee shirt and that she has great breath anyway. A quick brush on the way out the door couldn’t be so bad, could it?
10 Disgusting Depp
Johnny Depp hasn’t played the most hygienic roles in his time. The character of Captain Jack Sparrow is supposed to be rough and tumble. Pirates aren’t supposed to be totally clean. They’ve got to look intimidating and showers aren’t really a thing out at sea!
Depp takes his lack of hygiene in Pirates of the Caribbean way too seriously. It’s said that he doesn’t shower very often. This shortage of showers leads to greasy hair. While that can be a good look for a pirate, it isn’t really a good one for a popular celebrity.
Depp also used to smoke a little while back. When he was starring alongside Angelina Jolie, she convinced him to use mouthwash and mints when they were supposed to share an intimate moment. Depp still needs to get better at staying clean, but the smoking habit is gone.
9 Kourtney’s Bad Case Of BO
The Kardashians may have some issues here and there. Overall, they seem like they can all hold themselves together. They’ve got access to plenty of servants who can run their baths or iron their clothes. It seems like not every Kardashian is on the path to perfect hygiene, though.
Kourtney Kardashian is a bit of a hippie when it comes to health and beauty. She tends to opt for natural remedies, which is becoming more and more popular. The problem here is that the natural deodorant that she wears doesn’t work. Khloe even made the issue public on one episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
It’s said that she only gave up deodorant when she was breastfeeding, so it may have only been for the sake of her children’s health. We aren’t totally sure that she ended up using deodorant when she stopped breastfeeding, though.
8 Robert Pattison—A No ’Poo Kind Of Guy
Robert Pattison was well known as a heartthrob back when he was so popular for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. He’s not all he’s cracked up to be, though. Most of us will find him a whole lot less attractive after learning about his failure to wash his hair for six whole weeks.
At one point, it was rumored that Pattison had not washed his hair for a month and a half. Whether or not this is true, he has a pretty nonchalant attitude about the whole thing.
Pattison said, “I don’t really see the point in washing your hair. 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.”
7 Brad And His Baby Wipes
The Pitt-Jolie clan has been known to be somewhat hippie-like. One report said that they “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.”
They don’t have a lot of rules and this apparently comes from Brad Pitt’s own beliefs. Pitt and his family tend to avoid regular showers. It’s believed that this father of six has used baby wipes to freshen up between these rare showers.
Due to the hippie situation, this family doesn’t use store-bought soap and makes their own instead. Most of this is Pitt though, and his family isn’t super happy with his stink. He also doesn’t wear deodorant. This former Chanel fragrance model has obviously ditched that.
6 Megan—Foxy Or Filthy?
Megan Fox is easily one of the hottest babes to exist in the world of Hollywood. Plenty of men have drooled over her and we don’t see that coming to an end anytime soon. Well, that’s only if the secrets about her hygiene stay undercover. Unfortunately for her, these rumors have already surfaced and some of them have been shared by the actress herself.
In one interview, Fox mentioned that, “My wardrobe on Transformers always smells like farts and I have no idea why.” Talk about TMI! She has also said that she forgets to flush the toilet, no matter where she is. We feel bad for her friends who come to find this out once she leaves their houses. She doesn’t pick up after herself around the house either!
5 Diaz Has Ditched The Deodorant
As we’ve learned so far, not everybody out there is a big fan of deodorant. A lot of this has to do with the chemicals that are in some brands of deodorant. Thankfully, natural alternatives are on the rise, but they aren’t always effective.
Cameron Diaz has been skimping on this essential lately. This star has been seen wearing clothes where her underarms are clearly drenched in sweat. It’s also rumored that she wears the same outfits multiple times in a row and then proceeds to completely throw them away. This doesn’t seem like the best method to combatting the problem of sweaty armpits.
Maybe she should invest in a chemical-filled deodorant. She could also hire someone to create an antiperspirant that doesn’t contain the chemicals that she’s worried about. She’s got to have the money for it and there’s definitely a need for it.
4 Britney Spears—Toxic Stink
Britney Spears doesn’t usually make it to the top of anyone’s list of favorite stars. She had her time in the spotlight after her song “Toxic” became big for a little while. She’s also had some issues with keeping things on the up and up over the years.
Back in 2010, Fernando Flores—her bodyguard—filed a lawsuit against the singer. This was pretty embarrassing, given the circumstances. The court records shared some information about the lawsuit, where Flores alleged that "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."
Spears should probably know how to get this toxic smell under control, along with some other “obnoxious personal habits” which were shared by Flores, too.
3 Snooki Smells
For those of us who witnessed Nicole Polizzi—or Snooki—in her glory days on Jersey Shore, we know that she is a bit of a hot mess. It seems like she’s managed to make things work as she’s gotten older, more mature and become a mother.
As we can all expect, she hasn’t gotten it all together quite yet and she’s still a piece of work. Snooki has openly shared that she has bad breath. Even her husband is honest with her about this issue and encourages her to keep gum on her at all times.
To make it worse, Snooki also used cat litter as an exfoliator. We’re just praying that it was fresh, but we still don’t see the benefits. Her days on Jersey Shore resulted in perfume instead of showers and barefoot running in New Jersey.
2 Zac Efron—Another Shower Skipper
This stud is a dream date of so many ladies out there. His sparkling eyes and his charming smile make him a widespread celebrity crush. Zac Efron isn’t all that he appears to be, though.
Those of us who grew up loving the Disney Channel will recognize Efron from his first big role in High School Musical. He was very busy dancing and shooting hoops while filming, so he was naturally pretty sweaty. This only became a problem when he refused to shower after the activities. This led to complaints from his co-stars. This didn’t make a huge difference, as we would hope.
Some of us will assume that he’s outgrown those bad habits, but he is still a committed user of baby wipes to freshen up. Gross!
1 Cyrus Can’t Clean
Miley Cyrus is one gal who always manages to keep us on our toes. We never know what’s coming next and it’s a little scary to think of what she could be conjuring up.
When it seems like we’ve seen all of Cyrus, more news comes out. One source shared some information about her cleanliness habits. The source mentioned, "There's dog poop and pee everywhere, old food, pizza boxes, take-out 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."
It’s not necessarily a surprise to us that her stuff reeks and that she can’t keep things in order. It definitely fits with the rest of her personality. We just wish she’d clean up her house and her act!
