The world is still reeling from Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' bathing confession.

The couple appeared on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, revealing they don't necessarily take a full-on shower with soap every day, never mind bathing their kids regularly.

"Here's the thing: if you can see the dirt on 'em, clean 'em. Otherwise, there's no point," said the The Ranch actor – and the internet lost it!

Now, Hollywood's weighing in, with responses from Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard after they opened that can of stanky worms, as well as Dwayne Johnson, Jason Momoa – we've even dug through the archives for a protip from Brad Pitt.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell

Dax and Kristen appeared on The View weighing in on Ashton and Mila's confession, adding they too don't bathe their kids every day – sometimes they just "forget" to give them a good scrubbing.

"I'm a big fan of waiting for the stink," said Kristen. "Once you catch a whiff, that's biology's way of letting you know you need to clean it up."

Kristen later went on record to clear things up, reports People, adding the couple's stance also has to do with environmental concerns.

"This is the other thing — is California has been in a drought forever," she said. "... it's just like, responsibility for your environment. We don't have a ton of water, so when I shower, I'll grab the girls and push them in there with me, so we all use the same shower water."

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson shared on Twitter: "I'm the opposite of a "not washing themselves" celeb."

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal recently told Vanity Fair he finds bathing "less necessary, at times".

The face of Prada's new fragrance Luna Rossa Ocean said: "I do believe because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So, I do that. But I do also think that there's a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves."

Jodie Turner-Smith

Another celeb who took to Twitter to clear the air before anyone even got to asking is Jodie Turner-Smith.

Jason Momoa

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Jason Momoa didn't mince his words.

"I'm not starting any trends, I shower, trust me, I shower," he said. "I'm Aquaman, I'm in the fucking water, don't worry about it. I'm Hawaiian, we got saltwater on me, we good."

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel took to Twitter sharing her "radical approach": "Bathing daily is a firm rule in my house," she said.

Chris Evans

In a video that has since gone viral, Chris Evans has indeed confirmed our suspicions that he showers "all the time".

Brad Pitt

This one's not so much a confession but a protip from everyone's Hollywood heartthrob, Brad Pitt (We see you, don't deny it now...).

While filming Inglourious Basterds, Brad shared some advice with Eli Roth.

"He shared that when you're sweating and don't have time to take a shower, you just take a baby wipe and rub it under your armpits," she told People in 2009. "After a scene, Brad had to get next to me for a close-up shot, and he said, 'Damn, you're ripe.'" I said, 'I didn't have time to shower.' He said, 'Baby wipes, man, baby wipes.'" Welp!
