A celebrity controversy has spiraled after Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis admitted Dax Shephard’s Armchair Expert podcast that they do not bathe their children every single day. “If you can see the dirt on them, clean them,” Kutcher said. “Otherwise, there’s no point.”

Not long after, Frozen star Kristen Bell went onto The View and said she actually agreed with Kutcher and Kunis saying, “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up.”

Now, Jungle Cruise star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is speaking out about the bathing controversy, except he isn’t agreeing with Bell, Kutcher, or Kunis. In fact, Johnson says he is “the opposite”.

Johnson took to Twitter to share that he showers as often as he can and that he is the “opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb”:

Nope, I’m the opposite of a “not washing themselves” celeb.
Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’.
Shower (warm) after my workout before work.
Shower (hot) after I get home from work.
Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower

Disney Movies describes Jungle Cruise as: 

Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
