This whole celebrity bathing debacle seems to have Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis finally giving in to the peer pressure and actually let their children shower.
The That ’70s Show stars poked fun at their unorthodox parenting style on Instagram yesterday (August 11) writing, “This bathing thing is out of hand. #KutcherBathroomTalks”
Kutcher and Kunis were in the bathroom (fully clothed), showing their steamy glass shower door with the sound of water running and their children giggling. “What’s going on? What’s that? What?! Oh my god!” Kutcher, 43, asked. “It’s water, it’s water,” Mila explained with a smile.
“You’re putting water on the children? Are you trying to melt them? Are you trying to injure them with water?! This is ridiculous,” Ashton teased of their daughter Wyatt, 6, and son Dimitri, 4.
Ashton joked that “that’s like the fourth time this week! Four times this week!” Mila giggled, “It’s too much,” with a hand waving in the air.
“Their body oils are going to be destroyed! What are you trying to do?” he added sarcastically.
As we earlier reported, the couple revealed that they don’t believe in bathing their kids with soap every day in a recent interview. They also talked about their own bathing habits with Kutcher saying, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else.”
Since then, other celebrities bathing habits have been trending with how many of Hollywood’s white A-listers avoid squeaky cleanliness. Jake Gyllenhall, for example said, “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. 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.”
Ice-T’s wife, Coco Austin admitted she only showers when she feels “icky,” saying “Well, I don’t shower every day. I do what’s needed. My hair—I wash my hair every four days. Yeah, but when I’m feeling icky, I’ll get in the shower. Whether that’s every day, that may be, but that could be every three days. I kinda keep myself clean, though. Like, if I feel like my pits smell or something, I just take some washcloths and some soap to it. I might not have to clean my whole body.”
Jason Momoa and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, however are among those who proudly lay off the stink train. Momoa said, “I shower. I’m Aquaman. I’m in the f—ing water. Don’t worry about it. I’m Hawaiian. We got saltwater on me. We good.”
Johnson said that he not only showers daily, but does it three times. He wrote out his regimen, “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work. Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.”
