Why Matthew McConaughey Hasn't Worn Deodorant In Decades

A-list actor Matthew McConaughey has found a way to lose a woman in 10 days. The romcom heartthrob graced the cover of People as the "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2005, but the man who we'd think would smell like Old Spice and perhaps a hint of bar soap actually smells like ... himself. 

According to Elite Daily, the Oscar-winner doesn't wear deodorant or put on cologneIn fact, he hasn't used those products for decades. This allegedly all came to light when he was shooting shirtless with co-star Kate Hudson on the set of Fool's GoldHudson supposedly asked him to do something about his natural scent. "She always brings a salt rock, which is some natural deodorant, and says, 'Would you please put this on?' I just never wore it. No cologne, no deodorant," he said, per the Express

Perhaps it would be a lot cooler if he did.

Matthew McConaughey prefers to stay au naturel

Why wouldn't this man want to smell like he looks, you wonder? The answer is pretty straightforward. Matthew McConaughey doesn't "like to smell like someone or something else," he per the Express. In fact, the Dallas Buyers Club star claims going au naturel works for him. "The women in my life, including my mother, have all said, 'Hey, your natural smell smells, one, like a man, and, two, smells like you'" 

It's important to note that while McConaughey might not keep a stash of Axe in his closet, he does practice healthy hygiene and even makes his own face and body creams. In fact, he has reportedly said that he takes multiple showers per day and brushes his teeth all the time — five times a day in some cases, according to Elite Daily

And now that we've opened that can of worms, there are many others waiting to be cracked open, considering McConaughey's habits are actually in line with many other celebrities' personal preferences. Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, and Robert Pattinson are all among celebs who supposedly practice questionable hygiene. Who knew one of the secrets to fame and fortune was simply scrapping antiperspirant? Listen up, folks. It seems the new MO is BO.
