After Hollywood’s great bathing debate sparked controversy across the internet recently, Aquaman star, Jason Momoa, gives a hilarious response. After the trend of celebrities sharing their controversial bathing habits went viral, Aquaman star Jason Momoa made his position on personal hygiene clear while doing press for his upcoming movie, Sweet Girl. Momoa first hit the scene in 1999 playing Jason Ioane on Baywatch: Hawaii.
However, it wasn’t until 2011 when he truly stepped into the spotlight after playing Khal Drogo in the first two seasons of HBO’s hit fantasy series, Game of Thrones. Since 2011, Momoa has portrayed the half-human, half-Atlantean superhero, Aquaman (a.k.a. Arthur Curry), in the DCEU. Celebrity hygiene has—strangely enough—become a trending topic in recent weeks, sparking somewhat of a Hollywood bathing debate. The conversation started when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher told Dax Shepard that they don’t bathe daily, Kunis adding: “I don’t wash my body with soap every day.”
They also explained that they didn’t wash their kids daily when they were young, raising some eyebrows from readers, and yes, other celebs. On Twitter, Dwayne Johnson said that he’s “the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb,” and showers at least 3 times a day. Other A-listers have taken their sides, with Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell, and actor Jake Gyllenhaal agreeing with Kunis and Kutcher’s more causal approach to bathing. Jodie Turner-Smith, on the other hand, reacted by tweeting: “Before you lot even ask: in this house, we bathe.”
