I don't know whether we're supposed to be aghast or secretly proud that some of the most attractive people on the planet hold grosser traits than us. One would assume you'd be dismayed to discover that dashing chaps such as Bradley Cooper and Brad Pitt work long, sweaty days, without using deodorant, as it kind of ruins the peachy-perfect figure they seem to cut. However, I'm more inclined to opt for a little dose of pride as it's always nice to know that (on some level at least), you've got one-up on the folks you can usually only dream of being.
Regardless of which side of the fence you fall, I can assure you of one thing. This sexy scene is about to be ruined for you forever:
Sorry, guys (and girls).
Here are 10 celebrities with barf-inducing qualities:
1. Robert Pattinson
It goes without saying that Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson has an extremely hectic schedule. However, no matter how busy one's life becomes, unless you're on a mammoth trek through the Amazon, there is rarely an excuse for not washing your hair for six weeks.
Trying to defend himself to Extra, the 29-year-old actor said:
“If you don’t care if your hair is clean or not then why would you wash it? It’s like, I don’t clean my apartment ’cause I don’t care. I have my apartment for sleeping in and I have my hair for just, you know, hanging out on my head. I don’t care if it’s clean or not.”
I want to say that's fair enough... but it's not. It's just gross.
2. Jessica Simpson
The woman who once mistook tuna for chicken, Jessica Simpson isn't exactly renowned for being the brightest penny in the purse. What truly made my jaw drop however, wasn't her lack of basic general knowledge, but her dental hygiene. Or rather, lack of it.
During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the celeb best known for her hot-pant clad, boot-shaking, Daisy Dukes days explained how she'll generally "use a shirt or something" to wipe down her chompers.
"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 everyday. But I don't brush them every day."
"My lips just slide all over the place....I can't catch up with my mouth. I need a little coating...."
3. Matthew McConaughey
Opting for nature over nurture, True Detective actor Matthew McConaughey says no to deodorant, preferring an authentic, manly scent instead. And, while I'm in full support of that (deodorant is supposed to be bad for you, after all), it all really depends on what one's natural odor is like. And, well, according to Kate Hudson, Matt's pure pong ain't so great.
"She always brings a salt rock, which is some natural deodorant, and says, ‘Would you please put this on?’ I just never wore it. No cologne, no deodorant.
The women in my life, including my mother, have all said, ‘Hey, your natural smell smells, one, like a man, and, two, smells like you."
Mother's don't always have your best interests at heart Matty boy, remember that.
However, that said, apparently Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Johnny Depp and Bradley Cooper all live a life in full support of a pure-pitt, so maybe it's not that gross after all?
4. Megan Fox
We've all had to deal with one at some point, whether it be a colleague, unruly flatmate or gross older brother, but never did I expect Megan Fox to be a fully fledged member of the Unable to Use a Toilet Like a Non-Feral Human Club. But, it turns out I was wrong.
Talking to FHM the (now unfortunately not so babin') babe admitted:
“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."
Pinched a LOAF? You beast.
One of the more outlandish personalities to feature in MTV's Jersey Shore, Snooki has become a global figure for all things a little bit stupid. Take her creative exfoliating regime for instance. As the reality TV star's bank balance won't stretch to a simple, run-of-the-mill bathroom product, she turns to an alternative, 'cheapo' option instead. One that's originally intended for cat shit.
“Yeah, well, I definitely, um, like to Google a lot. And I don’t like to spend a lot of money on, like, spa treatments, just because I’m, like, a cheapo. So I Googled what else I could use that’s, like, not so expensive, and it was… cat litter.”
6. Britney Spears
Although we want to forget about Britney's K-Fed days, it seems her poor choice of partner stretched to influence her poor set of habits too (or so we're going to tell ourselves). According to her ex-bodyguard former cop Fernando Flores, Ms/ Spears is a walking-talking, chain-smoking, fart machine.
“Spears had obnoxious personal habits, such as chain smoking cigarettes, which made her smell continually of stale tobacco. She broke wind or picked her nose unselfconsciously and unapologetically before Plaintiff (Flores) and others and she was constantly and gratuitously loud and profane in her speech.”
Well, that's sad.
