Jake Gyllenhaal has clarified his comment regarding his personal hygiene, and he wants his fans to know he’s been bathing this entire time.

Conversations regarding Gyllenhaal’s bathing routine kicked off after he told Vanity Fair back in August that he finds “bathing to be less necessary at times.”

“I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that,” the Spider-Man: Far From Home actor told the outlet. “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.”

A month after his eyebrow-raising comments, Jake has clarified his stance on bathing during a screening of his upcoming Netflix film The Guilty.
