The Jolie-Pitt residence just got a whole lot more, um, aromatic? Brad Pitt, it’s reported, has stopped using soap. Deodorant too.
The actor-turned-humanitarian allegedly decided that your typical drugstore bar of soap and can of spray-on antiperspirant weren’t good for him – or for the environment. But instead of searching for a paraben-free cleanser or a natural, aluminum-less deodorant that wasn’t tested on animals (things we might all want to make the switch to), Brad gave up on the products entirely.
While he’s stopped short of joining the sparrows for a dust bath in the backyard, Brad no longer stocks his powder room with the typical products you’d expect to find there. Instead, he fills his shower with fresh lemons and apple cider vinegar. Citrus, of course, smells great (Brad may find the lemon-loving Martha Stewart at his door any day now) but although multi-purpose apple cider vinegar is supposed to do wonders for your hair, skin, and counter tops (it also deters fleas!), it isn’t exactly known for its comely aroma. The vinegar tends to smell a bit like pickles. Pickled Pitt, anyone?
Insiders say Brad’s habits have earned him a new nickname around the Jolie-Pitt home: “Stinky Daddy”. Angelina allegedly thinks he smells “like a sheepdog”- but she’s okay with him practicing his new routine… “only as long as they weren’t on the same continent.” Jolie is anchored in Australia right now, while Pitt is still on set in England filming the World War II drama Fury (where the cast and crew probably talk about his B.O. – that’s his Brad odour – in hushed tones when Pitt is out of earshot).
However, Brad will have to stock up on toiletries before the holidays when the couple has plans to reunite in Hong Kong. Hmm, I wonder what the odds are that it was Angie herself who leaked this story to the press… perhaps to give Pitt a little extra motivation to soap up?
