Jason Momoa is Aquaman, so duh, yes he showers
Jason Momoa has weighed in on the unexpected and sometimes troubling discourse surrounding the bathing habits of people in Hollywood. The Aquaman actor insisted that he showers because he is Aquaman.
While promoting their upcoming Netflix film, Sweet Girl, Momoa’s co-star Isabela Merced made a comment about the Aquaman star once telling her that he doesn’t bathe himself to discourage her from touching his scrunchie. The remark led to Momoa being forced to come clean about where he stood on showering.
“I’m not starting any trends, I shower, trust me,” Momoa told Access. “I shower, I’m Aquaman. I’m in the fucking water. Don’t worry about it. I’m Hawaiian. We got saltwater on me. I’m good.”
And just in case you were wondering what Momoa smells like, Merced reveals that he smells like. “He smells like Palo Santo,” the actress, 20, said during a recent episode of People (the TV Show!). “He smells good all the time. There’s not one stinky moment, at least for me. Are you stinky right now?”
“Hell no. I’m Jason Momoa. I don’t stink,” the actor, 42, quipped before clarifying: “I smell like fire [and] oil.”
“A lot of essential oils,” Merced agreed. “But if you give me a hug, it’s like a breeze that’s Palo Santo coming from his armpits.”
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis admitted on the Armchair Expert podcast late last month that they do not bathe their children every day, and believe that when “you can see the dirt on them, clean them.” Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard said they used to follow a routine of bathing their kids every night before bed, but over time, they have grown more lenient and now prefer to “wait for the stink.”
Jake Gyllenhaal revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that his stance on showering has also changed as he has gotten older. “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times,” Gyllenhaal shared. “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.”
