In the weirdest news of the week, The Ranch star Ashton Kutcher revealed he doesn’t bathe very often, according to a report from CNN.
Kutcher and Mila Kunis shared this fun fact about on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Podcast. Shepard also starred in the Netflix original series, The Ranch, with Kutcher.
Somehow, the conversation shifted to bathing, and Kutcher and Kunis both said that don’t shower all that much, but that’s not all. They don’t bathe their children that often either.
Why don’t Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis bathe their children?
Here’s what Kutcher said about bathing children on the podcast, via CNN:
“If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
Kunis added, “I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns, ever.”
Of everything that was said on the podcast about bathing, I think this makes the most sense. Newborns need baths occasionally, but not very often. Toddlers and older kids probably do only need baths when they are dirty. I’m no expert, but that theory makes sense.
Apparently, it’s even backed up by a doctor, according to a report from Insider.
But, like, kids are dirty constantly, even if you can’t see the “dirt.” So, I don’t know.
Why don’t Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis shower?
I find this part of the story more fascinating! I have heard that showering does remove the natural oils that your skin needs, and that’s what Shepard mentioned on the podcast. There’s lots of evidence online to back up that claim, too.
It appears to also be the reason that Kutcher and Kunis don’t shower or bathe all that often.
Kunis mentioned not having hot water as a child as a reason for not being dependent on showering, according to CNN.
Don’t worry too much, though. Kutcher shared that he washes “armpits and my crotch daily and nothing else ever,” according to the report.
There’s some level of hygiene happening, although everyone online appears to disagree about how much.
Kutcher and Kunis also revealed they wash their faces, so that’s something, too.
Obviously, the internet had a lot of fun with these revelations!
The Ranch has ended its run on Netflix. Mila Kunis will star in a new Netflix movie, Luckiest Girl Alive.
