Unlike Chris Evans, it is true that Jake Gyllenhaal often skips showers.
In an interview with Vanity fair Posted in early August 2021, the actor admitted that he sometimes gives up the shower because he thinks it leads to healthier skin.
“More and more I find that the bathroom is less necessary, sometimes,” he told the magazine. “I also think there is a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally cleanse ourselves.”
Gyllenhall, however, emphasized that he brushes his teeth frequently.
“I think, as Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. [brush my teeth]”he added.
