One could reasonably assume that most celebrities take their health and personal hygiene pretty seriously. After all, they’re constantly in front of the camera and subject to scrutiny, so in order to avoid needless criticism, they probably go to great lengths to keep themselves together.
Then again, you know what they say about assuming.
Apparently, more celebrities than you’d think prefer to keep things, smelly, sloppy, and all-around unkempt. From Hollywood starlets to action stars to some of the biggest names in the game, a lack of hygiene apparently runs rampant. This list has gotten us to start thinking about things differently: Instead of assuming that they’re scrubbed and perfumed because they’re celebrities, one has to wonder if they think it’s okay to skip it because the rules don’t apply to them. Whatever the case may be, these are some of the messiest celebs in the game. The rumors about Orlando Bloom might even make you a little queasy.
#1. Bradley Cooper
In an interview with Esquire, Cooper boldly admitted that he just never wears deodorant. We’re assuming this means he probably smells pretty bad.
