If you've entered this list with the idea that general hygiene is something that is overrated, we've got some sad news for you. Not only is having improper hygiene detrimental to your own health, but those around you are going to have to suffer the consequences as well.
One of the last types of impressions you should want to leave on your loved ones or co-workers is that you don't know how to wash yourself. But when Johnny Depp was allegedly required to chug Listerine just so Angelina Jolie could stand to kiss him, it doesn't exactly paint a pretty picture.
Though he'd be far from the last celebrity in Hollywood with bad breath; Jessica Simpson for example, made the decision to brush her teeth only 3 times a week, which probably doesn't lead to the nicest of kisses. Others on our list let their body do the talking for them.
Including Shailene Woodley, whose body odor was allegedly strong enough to deter some designers from renting to her, Courteney Cox who smells like a truck driver if not careful, and Brad Pitt who decided getting urinated on was a reason to shower less.
You may love to watch these actors, but after this list, you may definitely never want to meet them!

15 Shia LaBeouf Didn't Shower For Weeks For Fury
Shia LaBeouf is definitely committed to the movie roles that he takes on. But sometimes that commitment goes too far, at least as far as other actors are concerned. While filming the war drama, Fury, Shia LaBeouf allegedly elected to ignore several basic facets of hygiene in order to truly get into character.
"He pulled out his own tooth during the first few weeks of filming and then refused to shower for weeks on end so he could better understand how his character would have felt living in the trenches."
This comes from a source close to the production set of the film. It obviously gained the attraction of several tabloids. Among the most vocal with their annoyances was allegedly Brad Pitt and director David Ayer.
14 Courteney Cox Can Smell Like A Truck Driver If Not Careful
There is nothing wrong with ribbing on your loved one with fun insults, provided you know you guys are only doing it all in good fun and not to offend one another. But if you're a celebrity, you need to be careful about what you say because those remarks are going to stick around forever.
“Courteney may be pretty, but if she’s not on top of it, she smells like a truck driver and I like it.”
And even though Courtney Cox's then-husband, David Arquette didn't mean any harm by his comment, it still painted the picture of a potentially smelly Cox after long days on the set of Friends. At least he ended the phrase with that he likes it? Others, however, may not be so forgiving.
13 Orlando Bloom Caused Issues With His Relationship To Model Miranda Kerr
There are many factors that can go into ending a relationship. And while Orlando Bloom and famed model Miranda Kerr didn't call it quits until 2013, it wasn't a split that seemingly came out of nowhere. When looking at potential elements that she may have gotten tired of, you may find yourself shocked by tabloid reports that came out in 2008 and called Bloom's hygiene into question.
An inside for StarMagazine stated,
"Miranda thinks Orlando is too smelly. Recently, she asked him if he could wash his clothes and perhaps shower more often...He’ll wear the same jeans for a week before he throws them in the washer. Same goes for his sweaters, T-shirts and socks.'”
12 Cameron Diaz Hasn't Worn Deodorant For Decades
Cameron Diaz has appeared in several movies throughout her career, but one of her most eye-opening moments came when she was attending the premiere for her film The Other Woman.
During an interview on the red carpet, Diaz stated,
"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 went on to say that instead, you should just trim your armpit hair. While we don't know the smelly ramifications of her decisions, we do know she probably would rather this sweaty armpit photo not exist.
11 Snookie Rubs Cat Litter On Her Face
There is no shortage of celebrities who may once have been able to live lavish lives but before long, found themselves broke and struggling for work. Which is why it may be hard to judge celebrities if they still pride themselves on being frugal.
But when you hear Snooki's cost-saving technique, you may think it was probably worth it to throw a few more bucks in this area of her life. When discussing what she uses for exfoliating cream on Conan O'Brien, Snookie revealed,
“Well, I definitely like to Google a lot, and I don’t like to spend a lot of money on spa treatments — just because I’m a cheap-o. So I Googled what else I could use that was not so expensive. It was cat litter.”
10 Brad Pitt Was Always Getting Urinated On, So He SKIPS Showering
When you are working on a movie set with other actors, you are definitely given the opportunity at the very least to become very close with one another. But for Brad Pitt and Eli Roth, who worked together on Inglorious Bastards, Roth may have wanted to keep a wide distance (literally).
After allegedly calling Brad Pitt out on his smelly ways, Pitt replied,
"Man, [with six kids] I'm getting pissed on all day. I don't have time to take a shower," and explained that instead, he relies on baby wipes to get the job done.
Now that Pitt and Jolie are separated, perhaps he finds himself with more time to get in the shower.
9 Shailene Woodley's Allegedly Too Smelly To Rent Certain Gowns
Shailene Woodley has come out in the past and admitted she doesn't care very much about the world of fashion. But it is one thing to not care about fashion, and another thing to have a lack of awareness that allows for smelly tabloid rumors to start involving you.
Star magazine ripped into Woodley for one of her smelly home-techniques with one source saying,
"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!"
8 Robert Pattinson Drove People Crazy On Twilight Set With Smell
Robert Pattinson has been open about the fact that he thought the character of Edward who he portrayed in Twilight was a bit of a loser. So perhaps he was just trying to get into character when he elected to allegedly leave his personal hygiene by the wayside while filming the series.
Sources on the set reportedly said "He stinks. I mean, it's awful. He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy. He completely reeks."
If it is any consolation for Pattinson, at least Kristen Stewart was into it,
“He smells great. It’s kind of an animalist thing that goes on. It went along with the movie, so it was perfect.”
7 Megan Fox Will Forget About Dropping A #2
Megan Fox has often been considered to be one of the most desirable women in the entire world. So we're going to have to apologize if this next entry ruins your overall level of attraction to her. But when talking about her living habits with FHM magazine, Fox disgustingly (as far as many people are concerned) revealed,
“I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet. Friends will tell me, ‘Megan, you totally pinched a loaf in my toilet and didn’t flush.'”
Something tells us those habits probably didn't get easier to maintain once she started having children!
6 Johnny Depp Was Told To Chug Listerine
Now we need to be completely upfront here and say that Johnny Depp has come out and defended himself and his apparent lack of hygiene, saying,
“When I met people they said, ‘You do look like a hobo, but you smell really good.’ And goddamn it, I smell really good!”
Isn't that a weird thing to have to come out and confirm? Perhaps he had to do so because the reports that have circulated throughout his career represent a different picture. This includes Angelina Jolie allegedly requiring him to chug Listerine prior to getting intimate for the film The Tourist.
There were also stories that stated how both Depp and his one-time model girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, embraced a more casual attitude towards showering than you may prefer.
5 Emma Stone Thinks Her Body Can Naturally Smell Like A Drug
Some of the celebrities on our list you can absolutely put the blame firmly on themselves for their lack of hygiene. But if you ever came across an opportunity to hang out with Emma Stone, don't blame her too much. Also don't be too surprised if you get the impression that she may have been partying it up with certain substances that other celebrities like Seth Rogen and Snoop Dogg love doing.
When talking to Allure magazine, Stone revealed,
"I think there's something off about my PH because things smell totally different on me. When you stay at a Four Seasons hotel, they have all this Bvlgari stuff, and if I use the body wash I smell like pot the rest of the day. It makes no sense. It mixes with my chemistry and I just smell like I have clam-baked all day."
4 Matthew McConaughey Ditched Deodorant But Chews Tobacco
Matthew McConaughey has literally been considered the sexiest man in the entire world in the past, at least as far as People magazine was concerned. But maybe he would have been taken out of the running entirely if instead of getting to look at him, people also had to smell him.
McConaughey admitted in an interview with People magazine that he hadn't worn deodorant in 20 years. As well as that, he had no aversion to having chewing tobacco and sleeping naked. All things that may not exactly contribute to the best smelling guy in the world.
3 Jessica Simpson Puts Teeth Brushing On The Backburner
One of the most common health tips that people don't do as often as they do, is flossing their teeth. It is far more common (and necessary) that at the very least, you are making sure you are brushing your teeth.
But Jessica Simpson elected to put that hygiene tip in reverse, admitting on the Ellen show that brushing her teeth was only done roughly 3 times a week. Simpson defended her actions, saying,
"Because 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. But I don't brush them every day.
We suppose at least she can afford to get her teeth fixed if there are any complications from his habit!
2 Bradley Cooper Doesn't Use Deodorant Or Cologne And Thinks Body Self-Cleans
Bradley Cooper has sat down for hundreds of interviews throughout his professional career. But his most eye-opening one may have come when he decided to do an interview with Esquire magazine back in 2011.
While the magazine did not print a direct quote, it did make the claim that Cooper does not believe in using any type of deodorant or cologne and that he believes his body is capable of just self-cleaning itself. We hope that doesn't mean he bypasses showers, but if he does, he definitely wouldn't be the only one on our list who thinks showers are optional.
1 Kourtney Kardashian Leaves Deodorant Behind When Breast Feeding
When it comes to the Kardashian family, they definitely need to get used to the fact that people are going to be smack talking them online. But that smack talk may sting a lot more when it comes from someone close to you.
"Yeah, she reeks. Only because she doesn't believe in wearing deodorant because she thinks it's bad for her breastfeeding or something... It's uncomfortable. You don't want to tell somebody you love that they stink," said Disick.
We're sure Kourtney doesn't mind not having Scott around to insult her anymore.
