It appears that the World's Sexiest Man, twice-over, is paraben-paranoid. The always accurate National Enquirer reports that Pitt is so taken with the naturalist beauty that he has sworn off soap. He is showering with a concoction of his own making "a mixture of lemons, water, and apple cider vinegar."
"Brad says he’s read up on the toxins of soap — especially the anti-bacterial ones — and feels that using them and anti-perspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the aging process in humans."
This was not the first time Pitt's pits have been a cause for complaint. His former bodyguard once revealed in a tell-all that Pitt didn't wear deodorant. He also "shaves his armpits just as a girl would," to minimize stench. He once counseled his co-star Eli Roth to take what's known colloquially as a "whore's bath," a shower with baby wipes.
Angelina Jolie has reportedly been putting up a big stink about his natural big stink. "Their kids even started calling him ‘Stinky Daddy,'" the Enquirer adds. And thus, we imagine, the Jolie-Pitt scent-shaming began. Maddox and Zahara worked together to change Pitt's Facebook username to "Stinky Daddy." Pax and Shiloh surrounded him in a ring, pelting him with bars of Irish Spring and sprays of Chanel No. 5. Vivienne and Knox text-taunted him with emoticons of sheep and dogs, in reference to what Jolie dubbed as a "sheepdog"-like aroma
He's right about the soap, but there are so many options. I buy a liquid gel to use in the shower without parabens, which mimic estrogens. He's also right about antiperspirant, but Tom's of Maine makes some great deodorants.
Why is this sort of thing tolerated if not encouraged in celebrities, but would quickly render you nigh-unemployable and possibly friendless in the real world?
I haven't used a deodorant or anti-perspirant in 25 years. I live in the desert, you don't know you are sweating because of the evaporation. I have not had any body odor, no stains in my clothes or stinky clothes because I used crystal deodorant.
R4, apparently you're unaware that your nickname, "the Prancing Polecat," is not a compliment.
Dr. Bronners Castile oil soap is great, and pure vegan.
Also use witch hazel or isopropyl for my pits.
Screw you guys, I need my Lever 2000 and Axe.
you've run out of websites for your brangalina obsession and nobody here cares, OP. So sowwy.
There are organic vegetable based soaps available for those who want to avoid the chemicals and toxins in regular soaps. Giving up bathing and/or the use of soaps is just nuts. As poster #6 says, Dr. Bronners Castile soaps are pretty good.
OP, isn't it true that blacks claim white people smell like wet dogs?

What was his excuse in the 90s? Complaints of his non-bathing policy were made around the time of Gwyneth. The guy is not a bather and that's a sign of depression.
"shaves his armpits just as a girl would,"
Children do not shave their armpits.
I've had two different friends share an elevator with him and they said he smelled so bad they could barely breathe after they got off their stop. And this was before he stopped using soap.
Dat nasty! He always looks dirty to me.
Have you evr read the ingredients in soap? They've become more and more chemical based over the years. Who knows which ones could be skin-cancer inducing? .. I use a mixture of fresh citrus, baking soda, super fine essential oils in a rose water base. Does the job and leaves my skin moisturuzed, fresh and lightly scented.
He could do like they do in Japan and have some of his sweat glands removed.
"He is showering with a concoction of his own making "a mixture of lemons, water, and apple cider vinegar."
Mr. Pitt's use of water and the pits of fruit leaves a pitiful smell others feel in the pit of their stomach.
Oh please. He is a pothead and does other drugs. Major potheads are known not to bath and stink. People have said for years he has bad odor from not bathing. Plus I think some of these stars think they are so great we should not be bothered by their smell.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
