What's That Smell?

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooJulia Roberts

wenn1824075.jpg

We already know she sometimes doesn't like to shave her armpits.

Now, it's just been reported that Ms. Julia Roberts has a little secret….

She never wears deodorant!!!

Roberts says, "I don't like to share that with a large number of people, but it's just never been my thing."

She's not a fan of deodorant, sprays, or roll-ons it seems. Instead, she opts to use just soap and water to stay fresh.

She adds, "Sometimes, midday at work, I freshen up."

At least she stays clean, though we wouldn't want to get stuck in an elevator next to her!

    Ya'll are ignorant.. deodorant is for sweating. If a person doesn't sweat, you don't need deodorant u retards! Until u sit next to her and she stinks, quit making such a big fucking deal about stuff u have no idea about! jesus

    I don't wear it either. I do not produce an odour when I sweat, and deodorants do not prevent sweating completely. It's no big deal. Its the people who wear deodorant and still stink that we have to watch out for.

    I am allergic to deodorant and have not used it for 20 years. I have asked friends and family if I have an odor and no one has ever told me I smell bad. The odor comes from bacteria, so I use anti-bacteria soap and that seems to take care of any issues.

    Deoderant use has been linked to breast cancer. For this reason, I haven't used it for years. I can get away with it mostly because I don't eat meat. Clean out your bodies (and your endocrine system) and you won't need it really that much either. If you must cover the pits, go natural with Tom's of Maine or Jason. Say goodbye to toxic aluminum-based deodorants - yuck!

    Anti-perspirant has aluminum in it. Aluminum has been shown to cause diseases with dimentia (Alzheimers, etc.)

    This is just another example of an out of touch Hollywood fool surrounded by "yes-men" who don't tell her that she is a nausiating stinky cloud of funk. Hopefully she and Matthew McCaughahayhayhay are never in the same room together, they'd set off the smoke alarms.

    WOW, who knew that there were so many non deodorant using people out there. Kind of gross. I'd rather use it and smell fresh….It doesn't make me sweat worse….And actually Deodorant doesn't stop sweating, it's just a scented product. It's anti-perspirant that stops sweating. I don't care how well you eat if you don't use something under there you will have some kind of odor. If people tell you that you don't smell they are liars.

    115

    First, I think its interesting that so many people claim they don't wear deodorant, but they don't smell. It is a scientifically proven fact that you become "used to" your own scent, and cannot smell yourself after only minutes. So I would probably bet that all these people who THINK they don't smell bad.. just can't smell themselves, and no one else has the balls to tell them they stink.

    Second, I often work with a bunch of individuals whose custom is NOT to wear deodorant. Every time they leave our office, we are forced to spray the entire area down with air freshener and run an air purifier to get rid of the horrible body odor smells. They are generally "clean" people, but they do not wear deodorant and THEY SMELL BAD.

    I know deodorant is supposed to be bad for you and seems to have a link to breast cancer. But there are alternatives out there. Instead of completely eliminating deodorant, we should find something else that works. The body odor smell affects everyonen else, not the person not wearing the deodorant.

    YOU DO STINK… BELIEVE ME. YOU JUST CANT SMELL IT.

    For the past few years, I haven't liked her. She just seems like a bitch to me. And she made a comment that made me think of how illogical she is. And If she doesnt use deoderant, I hope she uses body mint. This twit has never had any real bashing, so just for that stupid comment she made, I don't care if people find her gross, I hope she learns to be a more humble person!

    There's nothing wrong with what she is doing. Some people have very sensitive skin and are allergic to deoderants and anti-perspirants. There are other ways to smell nice…like she said…she freshens up during the day! It's no big deal people. Have some common sense!

    Oprah looked shocked and said Julia never smells, in fact she always smells good so she might not. It is true what you eat will effect your B.O. she eats healthy… Actually her eating habits seem to be a sharp contrast to the rest of the United States, honestly it amazes me how much pre-fabed crap that is consummed.

    It seems their is movement of more & more people who dont like deodorant, I myself have stopped liking it in the last year. kinda of from an instinctual level, were it just doesnt seem right to put a chemicle their so abundantly. This is not a hippy thing but a new thing.

    here's the thing.. all the people here who say they don't smell…. you smell… trust me!! It may not be B.O. pit smell, but you stink… it's a different kind of stink. had a boss at work- VERY environmentally friendly… rode his bike to work (rain or shine) every day and very health conscious and smelled really gross.. like onions, but worse…

    134

    Just to let you know…historically in Europe, people didn't bath or clean themselves as much as we do today (Probably once a month). People thought that bathing would open up your pores and let dirt in. So they came up with the idea of perfume, cologne, body spray and deodorant to cover up their stink smell. So I think that there is nothing wrong with not wearing deodorant. I also don't think it is "eww." Unless your covering up something! Now that's "eww"!

    Too many chemicals in deodorant. If people only knew what was in it they would just shower and keep clean. I never wear it and after awhile you stop smelling and are healthier for not putting toxins in your body.

    139

    i don't ever wear deoderant either. i don't have too. most people who eat well and are healthy don't have a offending body odor. comsuming junk food and overall poor health cause foul body odor. many deoderants contain aluminum and other harmful ingredients. we are supposed to sweat that is one way our body rids itself of toxins.

    Anti-perspirant blocks your pores. I got swollen lumps under my arms from my skin not being able to breathe. So I switched to deodorant that doesn't reek too much like cologne. My mom said back in the '30's people weren't so hung up on all this stuff we have now so we don't stink….they just washed and that was it. I think it's all over-rated and we don't even smell at all like human beings anymore.

    Well if she's not going to wear deodorant, I hope that she has finally started shaving her underarms.

    Re: Clara – ACtually the Native Americans were historically cleaner than the early European settlers, hence why they had less disease before the Europeans arrived. I read somwhere that Squanto thought the Pilgrims in the Massachusetts colony stank (mostly due to their refusal to bathe more than a couple times a month and a lack of cleaning and changing their clothes on a regular basis) and tried to teach them that they needed to bathe more often. Native Americans sweated and got dirty just as much as the whites did, they just bathed more often, wore less clothing and changed it more often and may have used scented natural herbs and oils in place of deodorant.

    Considering all of the chemical crap found in deodorans and anti-perspirants these days, it's actually wise. BUT, that said, you do have to remain vigilant in washing a few times a day, (I use a natural soap) or Pheeewwww, it can get nasty! :D

    Re: Snickers
    The Indians did not have "less disease" than the European settlers. They simply had different diseases. The reason they died from the European diseases is that they had no immunity to them. Cultures build up a cultural immunity because the people that aren't able to fight off a certain disease will die, leaving only the people who can.

    I can understand how some people might be scared about using deodorants, but there are some people who don't used them and REALLY need it, yet they don't do anything to keep hygene. It's called hygene for a reason, you might think you don't stink or don't need to clean but you sweat, people sweat for a reason, it you didn't there is something resiouslly wrong with your health.
    There is a difference between really smellly sweat and just sweating, you still need hygene.
    Julia Roberts lacks hygene, because she doesn't even shave, so put them both together and she has got to reeeek! She takes herself too seriously, she's not pretty and isn't that great of an actress and to top it all of, she's a fucking home wrecker.

    I've never worn deodorant and I don't need it. Soap and hot water do the trick. Deodorants are a "need" conceived by merchandisers to separate you from your money.

    Stop using it. Allow your armpits to de-clog. You'll never need it again. Nobody in my family uses deodorants.

    this is true! or big coincidence… about 10 yrs ago or more a friend of mine who frequents the same circle said she was sitting next to Julia and that she stunk she said she avoided being close to her because of the underarm smell so I guess this confirms it
    at least for me

    about 10 yrs ago a friend told me that she was next to Julia and that she stunk she said she avoided sitting next to her because of the VO so I did not believe her or doubt it but I think with this statement it is confirmed at least for me it is a shame that she does not wear deodorant unless you are totally allergic and your life depends on it youu should wear deodorant as a respect to others
