Jason Momoa Weighs In On Celebrity Bathing Debate: ‘I’m Aquaman’
Lots of celebrities are airing out their “dirty laundry”… or more accurately, their dirty hygiene. Jason Momoa is the latest to weigh in on his showering habits.
While doing press for his upcoming movie, Sweet Girl with co-star Isabel Merced, the trending topic of celebrity showering came up and the 42-year-old Hawaiian native told Access Hollywood that he doesn’t skimp on his hygiene rituals. “I shower. I’m Aquaman. I’m in the f—ing water. Don’t worry about it,” he said chuckling. “I’m Hawaiian. We got saltwater on me. We good.”
The bathing/not bathing conversation started when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher said that they don't bathe themselves or their kids daily. “I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever,” Kutcher said. “I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else.”
Recently on Twitter, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said that he not only showers daily, but does it three times. He wrote out his regimen, “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work. Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.”
Per ScreenRant, celebrities Kristen Bell and actor Jake Gyllenhaal grossly agree with Kunis and Kutcher’s more lax approach to bathing. Jodie Turner-Smith, on the other hand, reacted by tweeting: “Before you lot even ask: in this house, we bathe.”

Before Momoa splashes back to the big screen as Aquaman, his upcoming film Sweet Girl heads to Netflix August 20. The action-thriller stars Raymond “Ray” (Momoa) and Rachel Cooper (Merced) as father-daughter duo seeking revenge against a pharmaceutical company that pulled a drug that could have saved his wife’s life. The film also stars Justin Bartha, known for his roles in The Hangover and National Treasure series.
