Like many of us, rapper Cardi B doesn’t quite understand why so many celebrities have shared that they don’t bathe regularly, tweeting her confusion over the admissions Tuesday.
“Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy,” the “WAP” rapper, 28, tweeted after several stars admitted that daily showers just aren’t necessary in their household.
Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest to admit he doesn’t find bathing regularly “necessary.”
“More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” Gyllenhaal, 40, told Vanity Fair last week while promoting Prada’s Luna Rossa Ocean fragrance.
“I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that. But 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.”
Days prior, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard had explained that they wait for their daughters to “stink” before cleaning them.

Mila Kunis, 37, and Ashton Kutcher, 43, have also shared that they only gave baths to their kids, Wyatt and Dimitri, as infants when they could “see the dirt on them.”
“I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway,” said Kunis of her own showering habits, with Kutcher adding, “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time.”
Not all celebs are skipping the soap and water, however, as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson waded into the discourse, insisting he showers multiple times a day.
“I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb,” the “Jumanji” actor, 49, tweeted Friday. “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.”
Johnson was soon joined by Jason Mamoa, who told Access Hollywood Monday, “I’m not starting any trends. I shower, trust me.”
“I’m Aquaman,” Mamoa, 42, added. “I’m in the f–king water. Don’t worry about it. I’m Hawaiian. We got saltwater on me. We good.”
