When Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis went on a podcast recently, no one knew they would drop a bombshell. In the interview, for some reason, the two revealed they did not bathe a lot. That’s right! Not only that, but they said the same goes for their children. Read on to find out why…
Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis’ Cleaning Routine
Last week, actors and spouses Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis went on fellow actor Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert. There, they talked about a lot of topics – including their daily bathing routine! It all came about in a relatively normal way; Shepard told his co-host Monica Padman that soap actually harms human skin. Apparently, it takes away the natural oils our bodies produce every day. Immediately, Kutcher and Kunis agreed with the host. The married pair say they only wash problem areas each day. Otherwise, they skip unnecessary bathing or showering. Sometimes they do days without a shower! Padman could barely believe what the stars told them. She revealed that she takes showers every single day.
When asked why they don’t bathe very much, Kutcher and Kunis had plenty of answers. In addition to staying away from soap, Kunis said her bathing routines come from her childhood. “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child so I didn’t shower very much anyway,” Kunis said. The two have a pair of children: Wyatt and Dimitri, who are six and four years old. Kutcher agreed, and then his wife took it up a notch! “I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns, ever,” Kunis said. Once again, Kutcher agreed! “If you can see the dirt on them, clean them,” Kutcher said. “Otherwise, there’s no point.”
As you might imagine, Armchair Expert listeners had plenty to say about the couple’s revelation…
To Bathe Or Not To Bathe?
Internet reactions to Kutcher and Kunis’ bathing routines, or lack thereof, covered the entire spectrum. From disgust to praise, they heard it all. Social media moms worried about little Wyatt and Dimitri, seemed to be the loudest. Most of them agreed that bathing children is essential. “Exhibit 1000 of rich people with too much time and money on their hands thinking they’ve made some revolutionary life change that’s too advanced for most common folk to understand, when in reality they are just being dumb,” a critic stated.
However, many others defended the famed couple. “Yeah, I believe they rarely take a shower or bath. But I bet they go swimming with their kids every day in their Los Angeles mansion’s pool. Can’t keep kids out of the pool, and at 6 and 4, they can’t be in without supervision. The pool’s probably heated in the winter,” one Armchair Expert listener wrote on Twitter.
A select few listeners even thought that Kutcher and Kunis had told a lie. That’s right! “Guarantee they shower pretty regularly. Their doing the celebrity thing and saying this so other people will conserve water by not bathing. They’re straight up lying,” one listener commented. While we doubt they’re lying, we’re going to need a bit more evidence before we stop showering!
