America Ferrera admits her guilty pleasure is ‘not showering’
America Ferrera has revealed a surprising secret about her personal hygiene routine.
During a Vanity Fair video interview, the “Barbie” actress admitted that she enjoys taking breaks from showering. She confessed, “It’s not showering for a few days.”
Her co-stars Margot Robbie, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, and director Greta Gerwig were shocked by the revelation. They were playing a game to test their knowledge of each other when Ferrera shared her guilty pleasure.
Before Ferrera revealed her surprising answer, her “Barbie” castmates attempted to guess her guilty pleasure. Margot Robbie guessed “cookie dough,” but Ferrera clarified that it wasn’t food-related. Greta Gerwig suggested it might be something related to self-care, but Ferrera denied it. Eventually, she confessed to her love for taking breaks from washing up.
America Ferrera is not the only celebrity who has admitted to skipping showers. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis made headlines in 2021 when they revealed that they only bathe their kids when they see dirt on them. Mila Kunis explained in an episode of the “Armchair Expert” podcast that she didn’t bathe her newborns. Ashton Kutcher chimed in, saying that they clean their kids when they can see dirt on them.
Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, and Jake Gyllenhaal also don’t mind skipping showers. Kristen Bell shared on “The View” that they only bathe their two daughters when they start to smell. She believes in waiting for the stink as a sign that it’s time to clean up. Jake Gyllenhaal told Vanity Fair that he finds bathing to be less necessary at times and believes that not bathing can be helpful for skin maintenance.
