Famous people often seem like they’re impeccably groomed and polished at all times. But that’s not the case for these stars with gross hygiene habits. Sure, they pull out all the stops to attend awards shows and fancy galas. But during their day-to-day routines, these celebs live life a little… funkier. A number of stars with bad hygiene have come clean about their affinity for living dirty.
Some of these celebrities with gross hygiene habits might not surprise you – their scruffy appearances look more suited to STDs than glamorous evenings out in Hollywood. But some of their unsavory habits are more subtle. Who knew that Brad Pitt prefers to bathe with wet wipes, or that Megan Fox never flushes the toilet? The disgusting habits of the rich and famous range from the slightly odd to the downright crazy.
10. Brad Pitt Washes With Wet Wipes
Brad Pitt is a well regarded actor and director, but he seems to have an aversion to basic cleanliness. Rather than using soap, Pitt reportedly prefers to use wet wipes to keep fresh. He even passed the tip onto his Inglourious Basterds co-star Eli Roth.
That’s gnarly, but not at least he didn’t do this ridiculous thing.
9. Megan Fox Never Flushes The Toilet
Megan Fox has an unpleasant habit: apparently, she leaves dumps for unsuspecting home owners to find. Maybe she’s marking her territory. Whatever the reason, Fox overshared with FHM, saying, “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.'”

8. Johnny Depp Goes Days Without Showering
Johnny Depp frequently appears draped in scarves, jewelry, and – in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise – misguided dreadlocks. According to sources, Depp smells exactly how he looks. Fox News said that people who worked with Depp and partner Vanessa Paradis claimed the pair rarely showered, and that Depp left all work related to hygiene to the hair and make-up departments on movie sets.

7. Robert Pattinson Never Washes His Hair
Robert Pattinson earned heartthrob status for playing a perfectly quaffed vampire in the Twilight movies, but it seems he doesn’t spend nearly as much time on his ‘do offscreen. Pattinson doesn’t wash his hair, and has gone as long as six weeks between shampoos. He says, “I don’t really see the point in washing your hair.”

6. Miley Cyrus Lives In A House Full Of Dog Poop And Old Pizza
According to Life & Style, Miley Cyrus’s aversion to cleaning was enough to drive boyfriend Liam Hemsworth crazy. Cyrus’s house was reportedly filled with “dog poop and pee everywhere, old food, pizza boxes, takeout containers, fast-food wrappers and dirty dishes piled up.” The scent of weed smoke and bong water apparently didn’t help.

5. Matthew McConaughey Prefers His Natural Smell
Matthew McConaughey might not smell amazing, but he seems to be proud of that fact. His frequent co-star, Kate Hudson, reportedly couldn’t deal with his man odor. She even brought deodorant to set, begging McConaughey to put it on. McConaughey apparently refused, saying that the women in his life have said, “Your natural smell smells, one, like a man, and, two, smells like you”.That man-smell seems to infuse every enclosed space McConaughey steps into. While shooting Lincoln commercials, McConaughey’s scent “permeated the car’s interior and lingered after shooting was done. Afterwards, the cars were sent back to the dealer. It’s unknown whether they were detailed to get rid of the stink.”

3. Orlando Bloom Doesn’t Wash His Clothes
The Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom is rumored to have some sloppy personal habits. Apparently, things got so bad that Bloom’s ex, Miranda Kerr, was dropping hints to Bloom to “wash his clothes and perhaps shower more often.” But beyond forgetting to put his clothes in the wash, Bloom also liked to sleep with his dog, Sidi, and “let her slobber all over him.”

2. Jessica Simpson Hates Brushing Her Teeth
Pop star Jessica Simpson’s teeth are dazzling white. So what’s her secret? Nothing. In fact, Simpson does the bare minimum when it comes to keeping her pearly whites blinding. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Simpson said that she washes her teeth “maybe three times a week” because “my teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery.”

1. Adele Loves To Pick Her Nose
Adele, the British singer-songwriter who has stolen the hearts of millions with her beautifully composed, emotionally relatable music, has a not-so-secret secret: she absolutely loves to pick her nose. Now, that’s really not too crazy as far as gross hygiene goes; however, she also loves to seek out her son’s little gold nuggets, roll them all up, and send them on their way with a flick of her finger. Toward the trash? Who really knows. But one thing is for sure – this habit is definitely her can’t-stop-wont-stop Achilles Heel.
