Jen Selter – $15,000 per Sponsored Post

Ryan ToysReview – $22 Million per Year

Ryan has been able to steal the hearts of millions of people around the world with his love for toy trains and Lego. Now, at seven years of age, Ryan is already one of the highest-earning people on social media, with a staggering 17 million followers on YouTube alone.
Huda Kattan – $18,000 per Sponsored Post

Chiara Ferragni – $8 Million per Year

Evan Fong (VanossGaming) – $17 Million per Year
When you have about 25 million subscribers on YouTube, you know you’re going to make a ton of money. We’re talking about Evan Fong in this scenario. Better known as VanossGaming, Fong’s YouTube alter-ego should clearly suggest what he likes to do on social media.

30+ Celebs That Have Admitted to Questionable Hygiene Habits
Celebrities, by their nature, tend to live their lives in the open. This means that we often learn things about them that we didn’t expect. Lately, this seems to include the hygiene practices of everyone’s favorite celebrities and some of them have really given fans some pause. These celebrities all shared hygiene habits that fans and critics pushed back on.
Post Malone has long been the source of speculation that he’s a smelly guy. However, there isn’t a whole lot of concrete evidence to prove it’s as bad as everyone says.
The rumor that his manager quit working with him due to the smell only helped fuel the fire. The singer has assured fans that the rumors of his smell have been greatly exaggerated but that he chooses not to “wear any deodorant or anything.”
No one was quite ready when Jessica Simpson told Ellen Degeneres that she only brushes her teeth about three times a week. At least she flosses and uses mouthwash daily.
Degeneres pressed her as to why and Simpson answered, “Because my teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery.” She said that she does wipe them down, though, with a t-shirt or cloth. Still, she insists that her breath stays fresh.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher and Mina Kunis recently garnered a lot of attention for their hygiene practices. They discussed it on an episode of the Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert.
Kunis stated, “When I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t that parent who bathed my newborns – ever.” Ashton later added, “If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.” Once everyone listened to the episode, plenty of people took to the internet to share their opinions.
Audiences weren’t sure what to do when Adele admitted, “I’d like to stop picking my nose, it’s a really bad habit that I have.”The revelation didn’t stop there either.
She continued, “The best thing is I pick my own kid’s bogeys. Even further, she added on, “When he was a baby and had his first cold – yes we’re getting really gross now – I sucked the snot out of his nose because he was so congested.”
Matthew McConaughey revealed that he had forgone deodorant and cologne over the last 20 years. Yet, some argue that he should probably do something to offset that. Specifically, his co-star in Fool’s Gold, Kate Hudson, found it a bit much at times.
He’s since shared that Hudson did ask him to use salt rock as an alternative to deodorant to help reduce the smell of body odor when they filmed scenes together. We wonder if he ended up taking the suggestion.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell
In the situation with Kunis and Kutcher, Dax Shepard was actually the one to start the conversation. He stated that soap wasn’t necessary every time in the shower.
On the View, Shepard and his wife, Kristen Bell, addressed the issue again. Bell stated that she is a “big fan of waiting for the stink,” further explaining that, “Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up.”
Bradley Cooper has a long career of movies behind him. Still, it surprised fans to hear his hygiene admission in an Esquire interview.
The star told the interviewer that he doesn’t use deodorant. He explained that he does this because he believes that the human body is set up so that it “self-cleans.” Yet, he also said he showers about three times a day, so it could be a much worse hygiene confession.
Since his Disney beginnings, LeBeouf has become a rather eccentric star in Hollywood. Unfortunately, he’s also gotten some complaints about body odor.
One person to say so was Maddie Ziegler, the dancer he worked with when filming “Elastic Heart” by Sia. Later, while filming the movie Fury, he also forwent showering to get into character. While it may have worked, the cast and crew didn’t appreciate the results during the long hours shooting scenes together.
The last thing anyone expected from this former Cheetah Girl is a confession of questionable hygiene. Yet, she claimed that she “never gets sick” despite this upsetting tidbit.
On an appearance of The Real, the actress and musician came under fire when she admitted that she doesn’t always wash her hands in the restroom. She argued, “Not at home. What did I touch? It’s my house. The toilet paper touches my behind. I don’t touch my behind. Not this skin.”
With the bathing debate raging strong, Gyllenhaal had an admission of his own to add. He’s not one for frequent bathing.More specifically, in 2021, he told Vanity Fair that “more and more, I find bathing to be less necessary at times.”
We have to wonder about the specifics of this comment. After all, everyone has a different standard for “often” it seems but we’re not too confident in how often “less necessary” bathing means.
Megan Fox has starred in a number of movies now, including a good number of fan favorites. However, we probably didn’t need to know about her flushing habits. She’s mentioned in an interview that she often fails to flush behind her, even when she’s at other people’s houses.
She also added a confusing and additional detail that, “My wardrobe on Transformers always smells like farts, and I have no idea why.” At the very least, we’re glad to know she’s honest.
If we were as busy as Jennifer Aniston, we’d probably need a lot of coffee to help us out too. The only problem is that coffee doesn’t come without a cost.
Unfortunately for some of Aniston’s costars, this frequent coffee consumption on the set can lead to some upsetting results when there’s a kiss in the script. Both Jason Bateman and Alec Baldwin have complained about it and Bateman even went as far as to directly offer the actress mints before moving forward with one scene.
You would hope that someone who hits the gym hard and frequently would shower off the sweat that they’ve built up. That isn’t always the case, however.
Actor Zac Efron is known for his choice to skip out on showers, even after a heavy-duty workout. On the bright side, he doesn’t necessarily forego cleanliness altogether but rather puts his faith in baby wipes to keep himself clean. It sounds like an option — even if it’s a questionable one — for a busy lifestyle!
This one isn’t so much a case of bad hygiene as it is a ritual that tends to gross her costars out. They only have to worry about it for a scripted kiss, though.
The actress has shared that especially while she was filming The Hunger Games, being smelly was part of the job. If there was a kissing scene, she’d prepare with a good, stinky lunch heavy on ingredients like garlic and tuna. We guess it could have helped break the tension!
Robert Pattinson has come a long way since his Twilight days. The actor has made his way up as a heavy name when Hollywood needs a serious actor. On the other hand, he revealed a secret about being the face of a fragrance.
He told Allure that while he’s a spokesperson for Dior Homme, he doesn’t wear the cologne every day. In fact, he told the interviewer that he’s heard that he smells like crayons. We suppose it could be much worse than crayons!
We should start by saying that this is an older story from Kesha. So, maybe she’s changed her ways since this interaction.
She once told an interviewer during a BBC interviewer that she wasn’t someone who smelled good and that she’s even been told that she smells like a diaper full of shrimp. We’re not sure we would even know how to react if someone told us we smelled like a diaper full of shrimp.
This is another situational story, so we can’t say that his hygiene is bad all of the time. He just got into some method acting to act in Lord of the Rings.
To prepare for the role of Aragorn, he decided he needed an idea of what it was like to live like the characters to get in the headspace. So, he left behind his more-than-comfortable home to live in the woods. Unfortunately, it’s hard to stay tidy when you’re living off the land.
Simon Baker opened up about his opinions on personal hygiene in an article with People magazine. Particularly, he stated that he isn’t a fan of deodorant.
However, it seems like the admissions didn’t stop there. Baker is close friends with actress Naomi Watts and she even serves as the godmother to his daughter. Watts has described Baker’s style in that he “rolls out of bed and is ready to go” and that the star isn’t “much of a groomer.”
Shailene Woodley is well-known for her preference for some natural options over traditional ones and has spoken more than once with some unexpected opinions. For example, she forgoes deodorant but makes up for it with essential oils in its place.
That sounds like it might work but it also leaves her clothes stained with the essential oils, according to some sources. This has included accusations that designers who work with Woodley don’t really want their lenders back.
There were rumors flying around a while back that Miley Cyrus used to live in quite a state. Specifically, they claimed the star let her house fall into a state of disarray.
The rumors weren’t about a few dishes either. They claimed that the star left animal waste, old food, and mounds of dishes piled up. Life & Style magazine even asserted that it came up in the split between Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. We wonder how much weight is behind these claims.
When The Other Woman premiered, interviewers probably weren’t expecting Cameron Diaz to take a stance on deodorant. They probably really didn’t expect a stance against it.
The actress said, “I don’t believe in antiperspirant. It’s really bad for you. I haven’t used it for almost 20 years.” That’s fair enough but she also claimed that wearing deodorant can make things worse. She claimed, “You’re stinky because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in.”
Uma Thurman has made herself a titan in Hollywood. With titles like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill under her belt, she remains a household name. Yet, that doesn’t mean she’s perfect.
If one stylist is to be believed, Thurman sometimes arrives “wearing clothes covered in crusty, smelly food.” They even doubled down on what they said, claiming they once pulled a two-week-old shrimp off of Thurman’s back. How would you not notice rotting seafood on your back?
Anderson Cooper graces plenty of television screens every day as one of the famous faces of CNN. Yet, he’s sparked a hygiene debate before.
He once admitted that he usually wears a trusty pair of jeans when he isn’t dressed for work. That seems fine until he admitted that he wears the same pair of jeans every day and only washes them about three or four times a year. The admission was controversial, to say the least.
Tom Ford is well-known as a fashion designer and he even sells his own fragrances. So, you’d probably expect that those scents were among his favorites.
Speaking to New York Magazine, though, Ford confessed that he doesn’t actually use his own fragrances. For that matter, he forgoes any fragrances at all, even opted away from deodorant. In a not-so-flattering light, he described his own personal odor as “a little sweat [and] a little dog.”
Alicia Silverstone has been questioned by her fans more than once for hygienic practices. For one, she’s known to leave deodorant behind, even for a workout.
One concept that made headlines a while back was when she shared that she fed her son from her mouth. More specifically, she would chew the food for him before letting him eat it. It was a practice that many questioned, especially the potential transfer of germs.
From Pirates of the Caribbean to The Lord of the Rings, Orlando Bloom has had quite a few memorable roles. However, there are some complaints against the actor. Off-screen, he’s been accused of being a little bit messier than he appears at his movie premieres.
Bloom’s former partner, Miranda Kerr, has even admitted that she would drop hints that he might want to “was his clothes and perhaps shower more often,” which isn’t something most people want to hear.
Ezra Miller has delighted fans more than once with a fashion sense that’s easy to recognize. On multiple occasions, they’ve stolen the show on the red carpet. Yet, as we’ve seen, fashion and flawless hygiene don’t always go hand in hand and the same seems to be true here.
In an interview they did with GQ, Miller shared that they aren’t that stringent with their hygiene routine. They described their personal scent as “cigarettes and not deodorant.”
Adam Morrison first rose to fame as an NBA player. However, his six-year career also included notes on his personal hygiene, especially from his teammates. They had some upsetting accusations too.
For one, they said the athlete rarely showered, which isn’t something that you hope for from someone who frequently works out. They even said that he was known to sport the same three polo shirts for a year although we can at least hope they were washed frequently.
Aside from an illustrious career as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Leonardo DiCaprio is well-known for his deep concern for the environment. Some sources have claimed that the actor takes these concerns into account in his hygiene routine.
These claims include saving water with fewer showers and skipping out on deodorant because they claimed that he considers it “unnatural.” At least we know he’s trying to make these changes for the greater good.
Charlize Theron was questioned in 2008 when she admitted one hygiene confession to David Letterman. However, she didn’t say that she doesn’t shower. Rather, she said that she’d be fine if she couldn’t shower for a week.
“I’m very spoiled and I don’t take for granted how lucky I am to stay in fancy hotels and fly first class,” she shared, “So when I do have a little time off, I like to get down and dirty.” We can’t blame her too much for this approach!
Courteney Cox has brought quite a few memorable characters to life over the years. Still, she isn’t perfect when it comes to hygiene.
Former husband and fellow Scream actor David Arquette confessed, “Courteney may be pretty, but if she’s not on top of it, she smells like a truck driver.” Don’t worry that it puts a wrench in things or that Arquette is complaining, however, and he even continued to say that he likes that about her.
Many fans know Jason Segel from his role in How I Met Your Mother. You might not know this behind-the-scenes fact about the show, though. At the time of filming, it wasn’t uncommon to catch Segel smoking between takes.
This was something Alyson Hannigan, the actress who played Lily, took issue with. Apparently, the actress drew a line in the sand and refused to do an onscreen kiss until he stopped smoking. Funnily enough, it worked!
There are few pop stars that have reached the heights that Christina Aguilera has. The musician has been among the most well-known in her field.
Still, no one can reach perfection and according to some sources, Aguilera doesn’t always smell like roses. More specifically, Hannah Hooper from Grouplove has said that Christina has often had an unexpected fragrance. Hooper has said that she will “swear to G-d that she smells like hot dogs.”
Actress and founder of Goop, Paltrow has come up with some interesting self-care solutions over the years and plenty of them have come under fire. Her search for an alternative to deodorant hasn’t always been successful either.
According to some attendees, the star was trying out a new alternative at the Met Gala once that didn’t hold up well. As a result, the product didn’t keep her smelling fresh while everyone socialized throughout the night, much to other stars’ chagrin.
We’ve seen a lot of the personal lives of the Kardashian family over the years. Keeping Up With the Kardashians even brought up some hygiene debates. Particularly, fans were surprised to hear that the star had left deodorant behind while she was pregnant.
We can’t blame her for being concerned or even skipping a few hygiene steps here and there but her partner at the time, Scott Disick, made it clear to audiences he had a problem with the decision.
Kim Kardashian has made waves with hygiene decisions before too. However, her choices might actually have some weight to them.The confession that caught fans’ attention was when Kim admitted that she only washes her hair about twice a week.
Shortly after the 2016 clip came out, many had questions but there were some people on her side. Many hair care professionals even said that one to three times a week is actually enough.
Johnny Depp has often been cited as a star that works a disheveled appearance into his fashion sense. Some of it might not just be for the look either. The actor has come up time and time again for his choice to steer away from frequent showers.
Unfortunately for his castmates on Pirates of the Caribbean, the actor shared that he even skipped a few times brushing his teeth to really get in touch with Jack Sparrow’s character.
Much like her fellow actor Leonardo Dicaprio, Julia Roberts has her own concerns about the environment and she’s made changes to suit these concerns.
First, she chooses to shower less frequently. Instead of a hygiene decision, however, this is actually to conserve water. Similarly, she abstains from deodorant in a similar concern that it’s bad for the environment. We’re glad to hear that this comes with fairly selfless reasoning, in the end.
Supposedly during Twilight, Kristen Stewart forewent some important hygiene tasks during filming. We have to wonder if this was more due to the stress of filming than a frequent habit.
It’s been rumored that, during this time, Stewart would wait a while between hair washes and sometimes even skip past brushing her teeth twice a day at times. To be fair, there’s no word on whether these rumored habits continued after the series wrapped.
Brad Pitt has taken over Hollywood more than once during his career. He’s frequently branched out into other business decisions as well as taken on new roles. This included a partnership with Chanel No. 5 but it ultimately ended.
At that point, Pitt decided that he was done wearing what he referred to as “synthetic scents.” Actress and then-spouse Angelina Jolie even joked that around their house, the kids referred to him as “stinky Daddy.”
Many people already know that Harry Styles was a member of One Direction before forging a solo career of his own. Of course, you can’t get much closer to someone than living on a tour but with them.
Zayn Malik noted in interviews before that the singer has particularly smelly shoes, adding that he couldn’t be convinced to smell the singer’s socks. Later on, his former girlfriend Taylor Swift even made comments on his oral hygiene.
Mel Gibson has come under fire for a lot more than just his hygiene over the course of his career. Yet, it wasn’t a topic that was completely left out. Stylists that have worked with the star have complained more than once about having to deal with some horrific B.O.
One stylist even anonymously described Gibson as “the worst smelling celebrity on the planet,” adding to his now-tarnished reputation with an accolade that no one would want.
If you don’t recognize the name Nicole Polizzi, you’ll definitely recognize this star by her one-name moniker, Snooki. We’ve seen a lot of the reality star’s life play out on screen.
Once, she decided to share her skincare routine much to the horror of listeners. While exfoliating your skin can be great for it, we’re not sure that cat litter is up for the job. Yet, Polizzi swears by the practice even though it sounds like a particularly harsh exfoliant!
Joan Rivers was well-known for her raunchy humor and wasn’t afraid to go for a dirty or mean joke. So, fans might not be surprised to learn she had a few quirks of her own.
The comedian was known to opt to forego deodorant but she wasn’t afraid to look for alternatives. The only problem is that the alternative she chose was still kind of shocking. Instead of just getting an all-natural deodorant, Rivers mixed booze and water in a spray bottle, which she would then apply to her clothes.
In her own right, Vanessa Paradis has found success as a model and an actress. She even dated another actor on this list — Johnny Depp — for a time.
It turns out their hygiene habits may have been more alike than most people care to consider. There have been plenty of claims that the star fails to shower regularly and it often leaves others steering out of her way to avoid the results of that decision.
We live in a time when virtually anyone can become a celebrity if they have something that makes them just a bit different. However, one thing makes this possible above everything else: social media.
