Ashton Kutcher went to Iowa to take part in ESPN’s College GameDay programming, but some folks were more focused on his undesirable hygiene methods. The 43-year-old actor heard some pretty loud and specific instructions while discussing a matchup between Iowa State and his alma mater, the University of Iowa.
Thousands of college students chanted "Take a shower!" from behind the set as Kutcher tried to focus on the football. The actor opted not to acknowledge the shouting.

The latest trolling comes after he and his wife, actress Mila Kunis, made a heard-turning comment about hygiene in July. Speaking on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s Armchair Expert podcast, the couple said they don't bathe their children until they “see dirt on them.”
“I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever,” Kutcher added. “I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else.”
Kunis revealed that she doesn't wash her body with soap everyday, but she washes "pits and tits and holes and soles.”
The actress also said she didn't shower daily as a child because her family didn’t have hot water. As a parent, Kunis has continued the trend, choosing not to bathe her children every day.
“I wash my armpits and my crouch daily and nothing else ever,” Kutcher added about his own approach.
Since the revelation, the couple's hygiene practices have been a hot topic of discussion among the public.
In the past month, celebrities such as Jake Gyllenhaal and Terry Crews have also come forward to share that they also aren't into bathing on a daily basis. On the other hand, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jason Momoa and Cardi B said they are in favor of daily soap rituals.
Pamona Purdy, a dermatology physician assistant in Sacramento, California, said both over-cleansing and under-cleansing can cause issues.
"Under-cleansing leads to possible overgrowth of bacteria, oil and dirt. This can cause the skin to become irritated by the buildup and breaks in the skin, which can lead to secondary infections," Purdy told Blavity. "Not cleansing the skin can also lead to breakouts, dryness and unwanted odor. Over-cleansing, which is a frequent problem I see, can lead to dryness and irritation, and can worsen some skin conditions like acne and eczema where the top layer is already dysfunctional."
