Looking good on TV is one thing, looking good and most importantly smelling good in real life, is another thing. The way we see celebrities as wealthy and classy people blinds us to the reality of what their lives as ordinary people look like. I didn’t know it was possible to be rich enough to buy a house yet be too broke to afford a toothbrush, bathing soap, or even deodorant.
Brace yourselves as I break your fragile hearts with a list of some of your celebrity crushes who have terrible personal hygiene. In no particular order and without sentiments there is the list of our smelly celebs.
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This might seem like an unbelievable one because Gwyneth Paltrow was upset about the Met Gala in 2013, promising never to go for it again because it was too hot and sweaty for her liking. Well, it turns out that the Oscar winner could quickly kill a thousand people with her smell without having to try too hard. A source told the National Inquirer some very personal truth about Gwyneth; the fellow said “Poor Gwyneth looked picture-perfect, but it must have been the hot lights that caused her to be a little strong on the nose, It was pretty pungent, and I don’t think she had a clue. I saw at least two people wave their hands in front of their noses after passing her.” That’s a severe one.
However, the actress has gathered some excellent friends for herself, and these friends are always ready to stand up and fight for her. One of Gwyneth’s friends made an excuse for her saying “Gwyneth has heard that aluminium is supposedly carcinogenic and that putting an aluminium-based deodorant directly on those sensitive armpit glands can increase the chances of breast cancer. She’s trying out new deodorants; she’s bound to fail with some of them…but Gwyneth tells pals she’d rather be smelly than dead.”
2. Russell Crowe
While you must have had a crush on a famous actor Russell Crowe, you must have missed the part when his body odour could crush you as it comes with the wind. A friend of the actor thought it wise to make an excuse for Russell’s bad smell. The friend said, “Russell is just an ordinary bloke, and he certainly doesn’t have a hygiene problem.” He went on to add that “If you stand really close to him you may catch the occasional whiff of alcohol and curry after a night on the town.
But you show me a normal, down-to-earth bloke who isn’t like that the morning after he’s had a few beers and some good grub.” But Joan Rivers begs to differ. Joan had said one particular time in an interview with the national enquirer that “He has a body odour problem. I prefer to sit downwind of him at awards shows.”
3. Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts is one of the sweetest people to watch on TV but standing next to her in real life would require braveness and a nose mask. The actress stinks and people close to her know it. One of Julia’s former guards said “Julia is a total hippie. She’ll go days without showering. She likes to save water — she’s really green. And she likes the smell of her natural oils.” The security man added, “She also says that she can’t wash her hair too often because it’s so dry.
She may have a point there, but she often gets musty.” Julia had told Oprah in 2008 about her dislike for deodorants; The American sweetheart said: “I don’t actually use deodorant…it’s just never been my thing”. Just how does everyone around this lady breath?
4. Cameron Diaz
Cameron might be all shades of pretty, but the smell from her underarm is far from beautiful. The something about Mary actress told E! News in an interview “I don’t believe in antiperspirant. It’s really bad for you. I haven’t used it for almost 20 years. You’re stinky because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in.” Diaz advised, “Let it go and just trim your armpit hair, so it doesn’t hold onto the scent”. Ewww!
5. Megan Fox
Megan has a terrible case of forgetfulness to deal with. The actress not only forgets to flush her toilet after taking a dump, but she also repeats the same bad habit when she visits her friends. Megan Fox told FHM “I forget to flush the toilet.” Megan Fox confessed “Friends will tell me, ‘Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'” How would a lady forget to flush the damn toilet? Does that mean she doesn’t remember to wipe her butt after pooping as well?
6. Jessica Simpson
You just can’t miss Jessica Simpson’s beautiful smile, but it might interest you to know that she hardly ever brushes her teeth. Jessica shamelessly told Ellen DeGeneres on a live show that “My teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery, but I do use Listerine, and I do floss every day,” Simpson said. “But I don’t brush them every day. I’ll use a shirt or something…I know it’s gross, but I always have fresh breath.”
Worse still, Jessica allegedly told a concert audience one “Find me when I’m 60 and (my teeth)will probably be all out, but I literally have these strong, powerful teeth that don’t need to be brushed.” Can somebody just give this lady an oral hygiene tutorial, please?
7. Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson is proof that all that glitters isn’t gold. The Twilight Saga actor smelled so awful at the beginning of his acting career that rumours had to go around about his terrible personal hygiene. When interview by Extra on what his opinion about the story was, Robert said “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 added that his hair isn’t the only part of him that is dirty. “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.” Ok! so that’s how he has to ruin all the love his fans had for him.
8. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio is one person who is trying to do something good by going green, but he is doing the good deed wrongly. A close pal of DiCaprio told the National Inquirer “Leo has let his love for the environment take over his whole world, and it’s killing his love life. He only showers a couple of days a week to conserve water, and he considers deodorant to be ‘unnatural.'” The source also added that Leo mostly misses his trash and recycling pickup days, and that causes his house to smell just as terrible as he does. I wonder how rose coped when he acted in the Titanic movie.
9. Kendra Wilkinson
Kendra Wilkinson might be a pretty face and an unforgettable actress if you have seen Girls next door. But sadly, Kendra Wilkinson allegedly smells like pee. A source was reported Via Kiss FM that “Kendra loves to look sexy, but she couldn’t care less how she smells. I don’t know if she has pets, but she smells like urine most of the time. She almost never takes a shower, and doesn’t use perfume, either.” Sexy and smelly just doesn’t fit in the same sentence.
10. Shailene Woodley
This movie star who featured “the fault in our stars” does have faults that need urgent fixing. “I basically have horse hair. It’s so low-maintenance … I only shampoo it like once a month — the oilier, the better.” She confessed in an interview with Parade. An anonymous person also told Star that “Shailene rubs these essential oils all over her body, and they aren’t very welcoming scents. Her smell is totally offensive, and it’s gotten so bad that her stylist is having a hard time borrowing designer outfits for her to wear because she makes the gowns stink! There is absolutely no way to get that stench out of those expensive fabrics. Designers don’t want their pieces back after Shailene is done with them!” Well, if it works for her, then we let her be herself.
We do hope that the next generation of stars takes personal hygiene seriously, I mean, we can’t afford to see cute faces on TV and deal with bad smells in real life.
