Brad Pitt uses baby wipes on his pits because he gets ‘pissed on all day’

Brad Pitt’s Inglourious Basterd costar Eli Roth is revealing some details about Brad Pitt’s personal hygiene. Roth, whose most famous work is as the director of Cabin Fever and the two Hostel films, tells People Magazine that Brad advised him (Roth) to use baby wipes when a shower isn’t in the cards. Pitt’s quickie-shower involves the application of baby wipes to the armpits – but not other parts of body, which doesn’t really seem like much of a quickie clean-up to me. The funniest part is when Roth describes Brad’s showering dilemma, and claims that Brad told him “Man, I’m getting pissed on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.” Good lord, Brad. Learn how to put diapers on those kids:

While filming Quentin Tarantino’s movie about World War II, Inglourious Basterds, superdad Brad Pitt offered up some unconventional hygiene tips for his sometimes smelly costars.

“He shared that when you’re sweating and don’t have time to take a shower, you just take a baby wipe and rub it under your armpits,” Pitt’s costar and pal Eli Roth told PEOPLE at Saturday’s Spike TV Guys Choice 2009 in Los Angeles, set to air on the cable network June 21 at 10 p.m.

“After a scene, Brad had to get next to me for a close-up shot, and he said, ‘Damn, you’re ripe,’ ” recalls Roth, 37. “I said, ‘I didn’t have time to shower.’ He said, ‘Baby wipes, man, baby wipes.’ ”

When it came to Pitt’s pits, Roth said the leading man explained, “I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits.” Pitt further said, “Man, I’m getting pissed on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.”

“I thought that was the greatest tip,” says Roth, who took the advice to heart. “My character is called the Bear Jew. If I ever started to smell like a bear, I would just use a couple baby wipes under the armpits, and it made it safe for everyone else to act around me.”

Roth, Pitt and company recently returned from the Cannes Film Festival, where they promoted their movie, which hits U.S. theaters in August. While in France, Roth was seen partying with Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Jolie, Roth says, “is awesome, totally cool,” just like Pitt.

“He’s such a funny guy. He has a great sense of humor, and he’s so into it. He’s really there to have a great time. Now, he’s at the point in his career where he’s the biggest movie star in the world, he can do whatever he wants, so when he’s there, he just wants to have a great time.”

Roth – who’s built his own cult following as the director of such horror flicks as Hostel and Cabin Fever – is also quick to say Pitt was very generous with his time.

“I remember the first day, he taught me a lot of acting tricks,” Roth says. “We all wanted to ask him about Kalifornia, Fight Club and True Romance, and he was so cool to talk about all that stuff with us. Right from the first day, we were all a little shy. But then somebody asked him about 12 Monkeys, and he talked about everything.”

A lot of people are already making the connection between Brad “Baby Wipe Your Pits” Pitt and Terrence “Baby Wipe Your Privates” Howard. In a now infamous interview in Elle Magazine (link from Jezebel) in 2007, Terrence said “Toilet paper – and no baby wipes – in the bathroom. If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves. It’s just unclean. So if I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.” So between Brad and Terrence, you’ve got a pretty decent baby-wipe shower. But after all of that, maybe it would just be easier to take an actual shower? And learn how to put a diaper on the babies so they aren’t peeing on you.

    people have always said brad has an aversion to showers, and his hair looks horrible like that.

  2. Melisa says:

    Ahh how sweet! I wonder what the twins look like at this stage. Brad is an excellent hands on dad.

  3. Maria says:

    People are saying Jennifer Aniston has an aversion to men because she’s a lesbian and like women. Not Impressed you should ignor the lying gossip that people start. I agree Brad seems to be an excellent father.

  4. Ursaline says:

    He looks like a DORK in that photo. 🙂

    Reminds me of that smug, full of himself Seth (James Spader’s) character from Pretty in Pink.

    He shouldn’t have to try so hard to look cool.

  5. nnn says:

    Lol, his ex wifey like special showers…ask Mayer about that !

  6. DD says:

    oh no, not that pissed on all day comment again.

  7. michelle says:

    I actually love his hair, but I also think Kate Gosselin’s hair is ok too!

  8. Mel says:

    He is very hot. Love him. He is adorable with his kids. I know that up set certain people. Jens boy friend Mayer did say he gives golden showers didn’t he? Jen sure would need lots of wet wipes if any of that is true.

  9. ricki says:

    Was this stroy about Jen Anniston or Brad, you people need to get over it allready~
    I was gonna post I thought he was a big enviormentalist? This is not very pro enviorment behavior, but neither is flying all over the place in private planes and heating and cooling huge mansions.

  10. nimble minx says:

    I don’t know why, but this story made me like him a little bit.

    Maybe it’s just the comment on how he gets pissed on all day…it came off like he doesn’t mind it because he loves his kids so much. whatever his other shortcomings may be, I’ll give him credit for being a good dad.

    oh, and Maria? funny that you’d say this…

    “People are saying Jennifer Aniston has an aversion to men because she’s a lesbian and like women.”

    in the same breath as…

    “Not Impressed you should ignor the lying gossip that people start.”

    why not take your own advice?

    and why did you have to bring Aniston into this post AT ALL?

  11. Cinderella says:

    He is right. Baby wipes aren’t just for kids.

    I wouldn’t compare his comment to Terrance Howard’s, though. Unlike Brad, Terrance Howard is despicable.

  12. Maria says:

    Nimble minx that’s the point I was making they should ignor the gossip like I ignor the Jennifer Aniston gossip. Point is there are a lot of gossip junk out there why did Not Impress bring up that shower lie again. Certain fans seem to run with the Brad lies.

  13. Henny Penny says:

    OMG- Pitt is so obnoxious. He’s fast approaching Cruise territory.

  14. Kevin says:

    Henny, I’m not a Pitt fan anymore by any stretch of the imagination, but he is no where near Teabag Cruise territory.

  15. Queen Elizabeth says:

    Terrence Howard could have his own brand of wipes with his face imprinted on them! I will think of him everytime I’m wiping in the loo!

  16. the original kate says:

    brad is treading into kathie lee gifford territory with the oversharing.

  17. cassie says:

    Brad was talking to Eli Roth on the IB set Eli decided to share the story with People magazine

  18. Mary says:

    His bad hygiene has been discussed and reported on for years. Body odor when you’re wearing Tom Ford still stinks!

  19. fizXgirl314 says:

    damn, that angie is one kinky biotch…. ohhhhh, you mean by the kids… my bad :-p

  20. Kristin says:

    Yeah, you have all the help in the world, plus money and luxurious homes. You can’t take the time/have the time to shower? But you can spend hours on end on a movie set? I swear some actors are so annoying.

  21. czarina says:

    You know, when my kids were small (16 months apart)I remember times when my husband was away and I found it very hard to make time to shower…and that was with just TWO!!
    We assume they have tons of help. Maybe they do, but maybe they prefer to just be with the kids themselves when they are home. Who really knows?
    Besides ANY parent of a baby boy has gotten peed on no matter how fast you try to be with that diaper!
    And parents always make those kind of jokes, no matter how famous or rich they are, parents tend to talk about their kids all the time. It goes with the territory.

  22. Cheyenne says:

    Besides ANY parent of a baby boy has gotten peed on no matter how fast you try to be with that diaper!

    Tell me about it. I’ll never forget when my son, age two weeks, peed into my eye.

  23. Marthavan says:

    Brad – your face is not a baby’s butt. don’t wipe it like one. check out action wipes ( and get a real wipe.
