AceShowbiz - America Ferrera reveals her own dirty little secret. In a Vanity Fair video interview published on Wednesday, July 19, the "Barbie" actress shocked her co-stars after she revealed her guilty pleasure.
"I'm going to really regret saying this," the 39-year-old star said, "It's not showering for a few days." Margot Robbie, Issa Rae and Kate McKinnon as well as director Greta Gerwig couldn't help but be surprised by America's confession.
Margot, who plays the iconic Mattel doll in the movie, quipped, "What! I would never have expected that." Issa, meanwhile, turned her head away in disapproval.
Before the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star eventually revealed the surprising answer, her castmates had attempted to guess what her guilty pleasure was. "Cookie dough," Kate said. Greta added, "No, it's not food related. Oh, I bet a massage or something. Self-care? Is that a guilty pleasure or the same thing?"
"Or looking at Redfin and fantasizing about other lives," Margot said. In response to the guesses, America noted, "No, I don't feel guilty about any of those things."
America, however, wasn't the only celebrity who made headlines for her hygiene routine. Back in July 2021, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis sparked debate after they revealed that they only bathe their kids when they "see dirt on them."
"When I had children, I also didn't wash them every day," Mila said on the "Armchair Expert" podcast with Dax Shepard. "I wasn't that parent that bathed my newborns - ever." Ashton added, "If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there's no point."
The following month, Dax's wife Kristen Bell agreed with the sentiment as she shared that the couple only bathes their two daughters when they start to smell. "I'm a big fan of waiting for the stink," the 43-year-old star said on "The View". "Once you catch a whiff, that's biology's way of letting you know you need to clean it up."
Jake Gyllenhaal also admitted that he didn't find "bathing to be less necessary, at times." The "Spider-Man: Far From Home" actor said, "I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that. But I do also think that there's a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves."
