There was always that one kid in gym class who just refused to wear deodorant, and he’d always smell like a dog that had just rolled around in his own shit. I mean seriously, I remember one kid in my gym class in high school that simply didn’t believe in deodorant, and nobody would get within 30 feet of him after class… like he was rubbing onions on his pits.
It was that bad.
Of course, there was also that kid that tried to hide it with buckets of Axe Body Spray… forever ruining the smell of Axe Body Spray,
However, in light of the recent news about a number of celebrities that say they don’t bathe every day, there’s actually an actor who would join my not so good buddy from high school in a march against deodorant.
Actually, it’s one of the most famous actors in the world:
A disclaimer, I like McConaughey as much as anybody. Great actor, and all around cool dude. But this is just something I refuse to get behind. And who exposed him?
“I remember that Matthew McConaughey said that he did not use deodorant and that he didn’t have an odor. So my first thought is, ‘I’m going to get as close as I can to him to see if he’s right.”
And turns out, he doesn’t.
“He did not have an odor. He smells like granola and good living. He has a sweet, sweet scent that is just him and it’s not musty or crazy. I believe he bathes because he smells delicious. He just didn’t have deodorant on. Those that don’t bathe, I don’t understand.”
In fact, McConaughey even backed up this claim in an interview with Peoplein 2005. When asked what a man should smell like? He replied:
“A man… I haven’t worn deodorant in 20 years.”
So this is proof right here. Matthew McConaughey was made in a lab by some alien life force that makes you unusually chill, cool as all hell, and apparently… not smell.
