Brad Pitt smells ‘like a sheepdog’, he refuses to use real soap these days

brad1

I’ve never smelled Brad Pitt. If I try to imagine it… I would guess that he probably smells a little bit gamey, a little bit like a Tom Ford cologne, a little bit like cigarettes and a little bit like baby powder (from dealing with the kids). Not entirely unpleasant, but not really “clean” smelling either. There’s nothing that smells so good on a man than soap, amirite? I love a man who smells like he just got out the shower. I have a strange affection for men who smell of Irish Spring. But Brad Pitt is not that man. According to the Enquirer, Brad has been washing himself in his own “all natural” soap concoction and it’s left him with major B.O. Gross.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are now miles apart, working on separate projects. That’s a good thing because Brad has sworn off soap! And before they parted ways, Angelina complained that he stinks. Brad, who’s currently in England filming Fury, recently started using a homemade concoction of lemons, water and apple cider vinegar instead of soap, a source says.

“Brad says he’s read up on the toxins of soap – especially the antibacterial ones – and feels that using them and antiperspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the aging process in humans,” said an insider. “But Angelina was revolted, and their kids even started calling him ‘Stinky Daddy’. Angie agreed to huor him only as long as they weren’t on the same continent.”

Angelina told him he “smelled like a sheepdog,” and when they met up in Hong Kong, she managed to coax him into a bubble bath and warned him if he didn’t start scrubbing up soon, “he’ll be spending his honeymoon on the couch.”

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

The Villainess strikes again! Why can’t The Leg let Brad Pitt be gamey? Why does she have to ruin everything?! Seriously, though… I can’t imagine Brad Pitt smelling of vinegar. That would make me nauseous. I’d rather him smell like cigs, quite honestly. Just wash your body with soap like a normal person! Unless you have some skin or allergy issues, I don’t get why people make it so complicated.

I have a weird B.O. story. There’s this older man who works out at my gym around the same time as me every time I’m in there. He kind of follows me around, which kind of creeps me out. I would ignore it, but I swear to God, this man smells like he baths in garlic. It’s so gross that whenever he comes and works out beside me, I immediately have to switch machines. I know that’s rude, but I don’t want to vom while I work out. I keep hoping that he’ll get the message and stop following me around, but so far it hasn’t happened. It’s really just the smell at this point – if he was just a creepy old guy who followed me around and he smelled okay, that would be easy enough to ignore. But the garlic!! UGH!

    Did you see his butt in 12 Years A Slave when he squatted down while building that gazebo? Bbbbbaby! If I got up in that he could smell like a skunk for all I’d care.

  2. JJ says:

    He looks either gross or dumb. The Counselor is flopping bit time too. LOL

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Poor Kaiser! How awful to be stalked by Stinky Old Man At Gym. I can’t think of a solution. Talk to management? Offer him gum? Change time you go? Good luck.

    • MacScore says:

      I know, Kaiser! I sympathize. There’s a man at my gym like that too; he’s not following me, but whenever he’s next to be on the treadmill I literally almost gag due to his bad B.O. – just the regular bad kind; I suspect he wears a work out shirt with stale sweat in it over and over and over and over… I have tried getting up and opening windows, but he does not get the message. I always have to go and use machines in another room until he leaves. What’s the solution….?
      On the topic at hand: the only time I found Brad Pitt remotely sexy was in one of his early roles in Thelma and Louise. I just don’t get the attraction.

    • Esmom says:

      Lol. Gum is like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound when it comes to garlic, since it seems to come from the pores. It’s sucks, but when I think of this one smelly guy I used to see/smell at my gym, a garlic smell would have actually pleasant compared to his odor, which I can only describe as “ass.” And he was a young guy. ICK.

    • blue marie says:

      Kaiser could tell the dude that vampires aren’t the only thing he’s detracting.

    • Thiajoka says:

      Advice about garlicky old man: Tell him you are a vampire and the garlicky smell he carries with him will eventually reduce you to ash.

  4. Cleveland Girl says:

    I am sorry, but he looks like a geriatric hippy. And an unattractive one at that. Combine that with body odor and NO Thank you…

    • momoftwo says:

      I’m sad to say it but I agree. I think he got fillers in his face a year or so ago and now he just looks puffy in the face (but his body is still amazing!)

      I wish he had just embraced his wrinkles :(

    • Decloo says:

      I kind of agree. If there’s one thing I cannot stand it’s body odor. I have a few relatives that are kind of hipster-back to nature types and they use all-natural deoderants that simply DO NOT WORK. I’m am truly grossed out by the smell. I’ve decided now to have no compuction in telling people they stink. If I’m on the subway and someone has bad BO I will make a face or wave my hand in front of my nose. They need to know that they are offending other people with whom they are sharing close quarters.

    • jwoolman says:

      I would much rather smell natural odors than artificial fragrances that are everywhere today. Even skunk odor is preferable, because the skunk odor doesn’t give me all the miserable problems from the non-natural perfumey stuff humans inflict me with. I make people stay on the porch if they refuse to come grubby or unscented. Really. Not worth the long-lasting bad effects for me. More and more people are having such problems because we’re just saturated in the stuff. Soaps, shampoos, deodorants, dish washing liquids, laundry detergents (yes, they leave residue on your clothes) etc. in addition to cosmetics and colognes and aftershaves etc. I can’t even be outside when the neighbors are washing/drying their clothes – either the exhaust from the dryer or just the fumes from line drying make the air unbreathable. These fragrances are intended to last and get the wearer noticed, and the isolated and combined effect means tremendous olfactory noise and discomfort. It’s just as much a violation of my breathing space as smoking. And it’s causing many people to have chronic problems that they don’t even realize are due to the artificial fragrances until forced to go without for some reason.

  5. Sixer says:

    I think he smells of patchouli oil.

    (And antiperspirants are nasty. I use one of those PitRok things and I promise that I don’t smell horrid).

  6. Len says:

    Actually I doubt the concoction he’s using makes him smell bad–the scent of vinegar dissipates quickly and he probably just smells like lemons. I’m betting it works well to clean off the gunk. But I’m sure he smells from not using antiperspirant.

  7. Kit says:

    LOL’d at the title.

    The only movie of his that I’ve ever found him remotely appealing in was Fight Club. His body was *perfection* in that.

  8. crab says:

    I’ve been hearing stories for years on how he doesn’t like to bathe and smells pretty ripe!

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, pretty much from Day 1. I had a co-worker who went to college with him and she said he was the hottest guy on campus but also known to reek.

      • merski says:

        Brad Pitt went to college? o_0

      • Esmom says:

        @merski. He did indeed, at the University of Missouri. He left, I believe, in his last semester. My friend said it was a big deal when he decided to take off for Hollywood just short of graduating.

      • merski says:

        Oh, okay, interesting. I was always under the impression that he’s been an actor since a pretty young age so I was surprised he’d find time for college.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Esmom, do you know if those stories continued on, after he made it big? Because from what I heard, the reason the stories about Brad stinking were because early in his career he showed up to an audition (to play a homeless guy or something like that) stinking to high heaven–to be “method”. I would imagine that after he got a little more famous and the ladies started throwing themselves at him–he started bathing.

        Because I don’t care how sexy he is–I’m not getting with someone who can’t even shower. My mom told me this one story, when she was in Spain (while in the Navy). She was at this club with her friends, and this guy came up to her–he was Spanish, obviously. She said he was probably the most beautiful thing you will ever see in your life–he had light brown skin, really pretty brown eyes, and long black hair, down to his waist–she said they were making eyes at each other for a few minutes, until he smiled.

        She said his teeth were BROWN. The verbatim quote was “he looked like he brushed his teeth with shit”–she said he came up to her, asked her if she wanted to dance, in spanish, and she said no and high tailed it out of there.

    • Kate says:

      Yeah, this story comes around again every few years, I remember reading something about his ‘unique’ scent before he was even a big deal and there were dozens of stories about both Gwyneth and Jennifer being grossed out by his personal hygiene.

      It’s not like it’s surprising, most of the time he looks like he’d smell, and not just of weed. He get’s nicely cleaned up when he has to but off duty he often looks like someone who doesn’t have access to hot water.

    • Adrenalynn Tuber says:

      You are correct about BP’s early reek reports. And, having been in an elevator with him, the early reek reports are correct.

  9. Rhea says:

    LOL. I never see him in person, so I can’t say if this story is real or not. I do remember he said that he likes to use baby wipes so I thought he would at least smells like one. :)

    And apparently, I’m not the only one who loves the smell of a man who just got out of the shower….

  10. Delorb says:

    I don’t understand why guys don’t just wash. I mean, really wash. I remember this porn star was giving an interview at a porn-Con (think Comic Con, but with porn. Well real porn and not nerd porn). Anyway, they asked her what she would like to tell her male fans. She said to take a bath and brush their teeth before asking for her autograph. If a porn star has to tell you that you stink, then you stink!

  11. janie says:

    He always looks like he needs a bath… He appears very unkempt. His hair looks dirty, his beard is never groomed! Not my idea of a good time!

    • Hautie says:

      Totally agree. He looks like he needs a bath. And has for years.

      He’s such a pretty man with poor hygiene skills. And you know his Mother taught him better than that. I bet he baths with soap when he is in her house! :)

      But oddly enough, it really seems to be an issue with lots of men. They really can’t smell that funk. That waifs off them.

      And I am not talking about men who have been working all day. I am speaking of men who lounge all day and still refuse to use soap and water daily to wash their ass.

      (Irish Spring bath soap… is there really anything better than the newer blue bar Irish Spring??? Holy crap that stuff smells amazing….)

  12. mkyarwood says:

    I don’t use soap (unless I’m actually dirty with like, dirt or after a workout in those places George Carlin says to wash every day) and it was a revelation for me. However! That doesn’t mean I walk around smelling like a sheep dog. I use coconut oil mixed with Himalayan pink salt to which I add essential oils. I always use a citrus like lemon or grapefruit for bacteria murdering and go from there. There’s no reason to stink if you’re ‘going natural’ AT ALL. If he smells that bad, it’s likely related to his love of curry/pot/not drinking water.

  13. blue marie says:

    I love when my man comes out of the bathroom smelling of Ivory soap, it’s the best smell.

    As for soaps/antiperspirants not being environmentally friendly, I know of several places to buy it all natural. That vinegar smell would be awful!

  14. lenje says:

    I know some people who are against “chemical soap”, claiming that it’s bad for your skin AND the environment. They make their own soap (from soda, I think) and shampoo. If I remember correctly, lemon is used to wash your hair. Not sure about vinegar.

  15. pam246 says:

    Unless Brad smells like vinegar I don’t see how he could smell like a dog. Water and lemon will leave you clean and non-smelling. It’s one thing if the story was he didn’t wash at all but to me this claim doesn’t make sense.

  16. bowers says:

    I, too, have heard this for a long time. Maybe he bathes more around her.

  17. doofus says:

    there have been stories for years about him being stinky, long before he and Jolie got together, so I believe the overall gist of the story.

    stink on a guy makes him SO unattractive. If he’s just worked out, that’s one thing, but all the time?…

    dealbreaker.

  18. Tia says:

    I am into natural stuff without toxins and i dont smell bad. You can get all kinds of stuff in whole foods that smells delicious. He either isnt using good stuff or he must have really strong body odour.

  19. chloe says:

    This story just makes me happy my man showers daily and uses grooming products. I’ve heard of Brad not grooming stories before, but the actor that makes me cringe is the stories about Matthew McConaughey stinking, he’s supposed to be pretty funky.

  20. Maya says:

    Sorry I am not believing this crap. People who have actually met him – journalists, co-workers, fans (including my sister) have all said he smells divine. A few weeks ago Helen Mirran said in an interview that Brad smelled wonderful.

    Its like Brad and Angelina haters and the media just wants to write bad stuff about them all the time. They cannot write anything bad about their careers, humanitarian work, children so they instead attack their body, smell, intelligence etc.

  21. mytbean says:

    Well Kaiser,
    The good news is if your gym stalker ever tries to sneak up on you at least you’ll smell him coming and have the chance to get away. :)

  22. MegG says:

    Don’t they say this about a lot of make actors?

  23. Kiddo says:

    You don’t have to use antibacterial soap, in fact, you shouldn’t. The resistance to antibiotics is increasing at an alarming rate. The single most effective thing you can do to stop the spread of disease is to wash your hands with soap. If you are traveling all over the world, or even in your neighborhood, you are putting people at risk, and yourself, for diseases that may not be cured by antibiotics. If nothing else, use soap on your hands, please. There are soaps with Shea butter and it won’t kill you, but the diseases might, or you could kill someone else.

    • Mel says:

      Actually, it’s much better to use teatree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) and/or baking soda. Or just SALT, a very a potent bactericide.
      Or xylitol (birch) sugar, another powerful antibacterial.

      There are many natural bactericides, and any of them is far better an option than using any commercial soap.

      It is also important to scrub under the fingernails. That’s where most of the bacteria abide.

      • Kiddo says:

        Tea tree oil can be very harsh and some people have reactions to it. My point was that the CDC, infectious disease doctors, and the like, are recommending plain soap and water. The most important part when washing is the friction, for an entire 20 seconds (or humming the Happy Birthday song). You are right about the nails, an often neglected area.

  24. eliza says:

    Normally I steer away from Pitt/Jolie threads but this intrigued me because for years, even in his his River Runs Through it-Interview w/Vampire hot days, he struck me as a serious non-bather. Sorry fan girls but it’s just my opinion. Don’t burn me at the stake.

  25. Marianne says:

    My 10th Grade Science teacher was always preaching to us about the evils of deodorants and shampoos and stuff like that. He wanted to make our own shampoos out of like mayonnaise.

  26. Nev says:

    Fight Club Brad!!!!!!!!!! Whoa. So. Yum. SWOON.

  27. The Original G says:

    “…….on the couch!…….AND I and going to call the UN….ok, not the UN, but the, the …….the ENQUIRER! Why isn’t my speed dial working?

    DON’T YOU RUN OUT OF THE ROOM CRYING AGAIN, BRAD! Brad?

  28. Guesto says:

    I bet that ‘source’ is Viv or Knox ringing up the tabloids for kicks and pretending to be the housekeeper.

  29. pnichols says:

    his party package must be ripe. he’s gnarly. gross.

  30. Cecilia says:

    Normally, I would dismiss this as tabloid fodder but stories of supreme stinkiness surrounding Pitt have been swirling about for years. He looks stinky & not very bright.

  31. ANDREA1 says:

    How about the story on national enquirer about the “alleged” fight he had with Shia on set of Fury.

  32. Grant says:

    This made me like Angie more. I would have the exact same response. I’m just like you Kaiser! Irish Spring, mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Me likey.

  33. dcypher1 says:

    If brad is worried about toxins in soap he should try Dr. Bonners soap. Not only does this soap not have toxins its all natural and it works. He wouldnt smell if he used that stuff. It does cost more than regular soap but he’s rich. Maybe he hasn’t heard about it.

  34. Mira says:

    What happened to all the Chanel freebies he must have got for the ad? He could just bathe in Chanel.

  35. Nicole says:

    Life’s too short to get stalked by a smelly garlic creep, at a place where you pay for membership. Tell on him.

  36. Anon says:

    AMI, NE’s parent company, needing to sell copies again? Do they need to file bankruptcy again?

  37. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I don’t know–I’ve never really heard any stories about him smelling bad–not any recent ones. But if he did stink when he was younger–why would any woman put up with that? I’m sorry–Brad Pitt could be the most amazing man in the world–but if he won’t shower/put deodorant on, then we are THROUGH.

    And I’m one of those people that have to either shower every day, or at least wash my armpits every day, otherwise I stick to high heavens as well. Sucks. My little brother (he’s 10), only showers when my mom forces him i.e. when he’s got so much dirt on his face it looks like he’s got a beard and mustache, and he doesn’t ever stink.

    But seriously though, these stories are ridiculous. How can anyone write, with a straight face, that Angelina is a b-tch from hell to make her partner bathe and put on deodorant and change into clean clothes–or any other of these stupid stories??? Who buys these?

    The only tabloid that I would even consider ever buying is People–and even then it’d have to be someone I like on the cover, and it’d have to be a milestone cover i.e. getting married, fighting a disease, baby pics, etc.

    My personal opinion–Angelina wouldn’t have let Brad NEAR her (when they met) if he always smelled like he was a little “fresh”.

  38. Faith says:

    The source has got to be someone very close,maybe the kids or the nannies?really funny that people believe this story.I think people make the mistake of judging people based on their appearance,i have a friend who doesn’t look neat,she never wears ironed clothes but she makes sure there’re always clean,in fact she looks scruffy but nothing on her is dirty,her hair,clothes etc. never smells.Maybe brad smells maybe he doesn’t,i don’t know.But if he does,angie is def doing the right thing.

  39. Hubbahun says:

    He looks like he smells of days-old french fry oil and dumpster crotch. Just made myself sick.

  40. TrustMOnThis says:

    Kaiser! PLEASE do NOT ignore the creeper behavior!!! That is not ok!
    Tell him to knock it off and if he doesn’t then complain to staff.
    Those men do not get hints because they don’t want to. Please.
    If you can’t do it for yourself then do it for the other women he is creeping on.
    They exist, I promise you.

  41. nicegirl says:

    I am so sorry to hear about the stinky old man following you while you work out.

    Sending you vibes of anonymity, as I don’t have an invisibility cloak handy.

    Maybe cough loudly and spit everywhere, when he is next to you, to freak him out about germs, or something? I expect you may actually have to vomit to get the creeper away! POINT YOUR FACE HIS WAY

  42. Bella Bella says:

    Let me tell you a little story about Brad Pitt. The year was 1991 and I was 14 or 15 years old. Thelma and Louise had just been released. I, being a hard core reader of Sassy magazine and tiny riot grrl snuck into see it at the theater. I tell you, I went into that theater a girl and came out a woman.
    Thank you, Brad Pitt. Thank you.

  43. Mel says:

    I am not familiar with the Enquirer – I gather its reputation for credibility is not among the best – but I do know a thing or two about natural cosmetics and cleansers, so I can GUARANTEE that lemons and apple cider vinegar could not possibly give anyone a “sheepdog” body odour – or, in fact, any discernible body odour (especially if he uses baking soda, too, which is quite common a combination).
    And BTW, antiperspirants ARE extremely dangerous.

    I suspect it’s just one of those cheap “ew- gross-yuck” baits aimed mostly at a certain segment of the American public, condescendingly perceived as totally juvenile, conformist and close-minded.

  44. Jess says:

    The smell of smoke is enough to scare me away. I can’t stand that smell.

  45. Asdfg says:

    Maybe Angelina likes her men dirty.

    Ewwww..

  46. mar says:

    the tabloids cannot know AJ had months of preparation for a delicate surgery and weeks of recovery, but they know what the cildren call him or if he is banished to he couch?
    GMAB

  47. Bea says:

    I find it hilarious that this story gets recycled every couple of years and there are still … people … out there who fall for it, hook, line and stinker.

    I wonder if the next story will be that Brad calls Jen to ask her if he stunk during their marriage because he was so high the whole time he was with her he doesn’t remember.

  48. SublimeTangerine says:

    Over the summer, I purged a lot of our personal care products that have toxic ingredients. One of the most toxic things in our house was my husband’s deodorant. I chucked it and haven’t looked back. I’d rather have him smelling like a “sheep dog” than develop cancer or health problems from all the toxins in those nice-smelling products. FYI- he still smells like the same awesome guy I fell in love with. No sheep dog here.

  49. Kay says:

    Wow!!,I’m so proud of brange fans today,no unnecessary aggressiveness and argument,this must be annoying to those who enjoy it.

    Well,brad i don’t care if you stink or not(afterall i’m not your wife) BUT make sure you take care of my baby Angie.

  50. jwoolman says:

    Odor is likely connected with skin bacteria, and there are various ways to reduce bacterial populations without using masking artificial fragrances or preventing armpit perspiration. You may have to wash certain areas more frequently, depending on your situation. Those deodorant crystals work on that principle- they cut down the bacterial population more and more on regular use. Xylitol starves the mouth microbeasties and heIps make a hostile environment for them in other ways, and so regular use of fairly small amounts after eating really cuts down the problem for teeth and gums (no bad microbeasties means no tartar, no cavities, no gum problems – and no mouth odor). Check out Ellie Philips Q&A dental blog for detailed suggestions. Anyway- there’s big money involved in convincing us that we must be awash in artificial scent, so be wary of stories making it sound as though there are no alternatives.

  51. Faithmobile says:

    One of the main reasons I love celebitchy is the comments to this article. A little critical thinking goes a long way in creating an interesting and intelligent conversation. Of course this story is BS, though because he is a smoker there may be enough of grain of truth to keep it around. Glad to hear others are aware of the dangers of overusing soaps and myriad options available as alternatives.

  52. JP says:

    There are products for people like this. Like Stainless Steel Soap, which removes odour.

    http://noplastic.ca/stainless_steel_soap.shtml

    Lemon, apple, and vinegar – that’s a lot of acid to be putting all over your body.
