Brad Pitt Keeps Clean With Baby Wipes

Brad Pitt Keeps Clean With Baby Wipes

Eli Roth opened up to People earlier this week about his Inglourious Basterds costar and pal Brad Pitt:

On how Brad stays fresh: “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. 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. I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits. Man, I’m getting pissed on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.’” (Eli said: “I thought that was the greatest tip.”

On Brad’s partner Angelina Jolie: “[She's] awesome, totally cool.”

On Brad’s personality: “He’s such a funny guy. He has a great sense of humor, and he’s so into it. He’s really there to have a great time. Now, he’s at the point in his career where he’s the biggest movie star in the world, he can do whatever he wants, so when he’s there, he just wants to have a great time.”

On Brad being generous with his time: “I remember the first day, he taught me a lot of acting tricks. We all wanted to ask him about Kalifornia, Fight Club and True Romance, and he was so cool to talk about all that stuff with us. Right from the first day, we were all a little shy. But then somebody asked him about 12 Monkeys, and he talked about everything.”

    making an interview with Eli Roth and talk only about Brad Pitt, well.. I feel sorry for Eli

  • Veronica

    FIRST – Yeah,

    “Damn you’re ripe” That is hilarious, who knew BP had such a great sense of humour.

  • mertz

    people with kids know about the wipes. thanks to johnson and johnson or pg or whoever makes those things because although i smell like a baby’s bottom after using it, i can’t help but think of the chemicals going into my armpit pores. my cousin turned me onto the wipes. they are also good for removing make up (eyeliner, mascera, foundation, lipstick etc.).

    thanks eli.

  • sade

    Baby wipes may help for a minute for the underarms, but, lack of showering creates more smells than just the pitts… not pun intended.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    He’s too funny!! Yup! Dads and Mum’s know about wipes!

  • Andrómeda

    So funny!.
    Love him. Thanks JJ.

  • releka

    I tell people about baby wipes all the time, if they can clean up boo boo, they can clean anyting.

  • Brad Fan


  • http://justjared bermy girl

    He’s right about those wipes.

    We’re still buying them 8 years later. They’re great for travelling when kids hands get sticky and freshening up. My hubby was making fun of Terence “baby wipe” Howard’s comments, but those wipes do come in handy!!!

  • pinkrose

    That is hellishly funny!!!! with all his movie stardom, BP is pretty down to earth away frim the cameras. That’s why he dresses so stylishly scruffy. He is not in love with his image.

  • Ellie

    Good tip Brad. tks jj

  • jaye

    The baby wipes freshener he’s talking about is when showering is not possible, he’s NOT advocating it as a substitute for bathing when bathing is possible.
    Brad is H-ella funny. It’s refreshing that he’s so open about being a parent.

  • Sofia

    Hahaha, so funny!, i love him (L)

  • lsam

    For a while now, we know Brad has a great sense of humor. Thanks JJ for sharing this.

  • fun fun fun

    Anybody needs a shower here? Hihi great advices. Like that sort of reality advices!
    Go Brad!

  • Parkan

    Someone should tell Terrence Howard about this…


    nice lookin but can’t really act. just gets big movies because of his looks and what he is percieved to be

  • mslewis

    Not only people with kids know about those baby wipes!!! I don’t have kids and I know they are great to have around. They are so refreshing to just wipe yourself with when you are out all day doing stuff and it’s hot and you feel nasty or if you are on vacation and go on one of those all day tours where you get hot and sweaty. Everybody should carry them in their purse or backpack.

    I like hearing about how great Brad is from other actors but it would have been kind of nice to read more about Eli Roth. Maybe next time!!

  • bintk

    Never leave home without them.

  • Trolls are stupid

    Did the interviewer asked Eli any questions about himself?:lol: Poor guy, but I am sure he is happy to have worked with Brad Pitt.

  • Trolls are stupid

    Way to advertise for Baby wipes Brad, I bet their sales will go up.

  • haha

    i thought that was cute and funny.

  • stupitt too

    he should know – they r not the cleanest of looking people ever.

  • val

    stupitt too @ 06/02/2009 at 3:39 pm he should know – they r not the cleanest of looking people ever.

    Well you might take heed of Brad’s advice and use some of those wipes to wipe your rottening smelling self cause I can smell your jealousy and ignorance way over here.

  • shirley

    Brad seems so cool, no wonder people gravitate towards him, he has that special something, that “it”. And yep, baby wipes are the best for keeping one fresh on the fly.

  • pinkrose

    If Brad’s not careful, manufacturers will be sending him baby wipes from now on as a payback for his promotion.

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    yeah, angie makes him. i wonder if she makes him cut himself the way she does.

  • Angie & Brad were DESTINY!

    to “stupitt too’:



  • Jens lip injections


  • MMMM

    Is it weird that I’m TOTALLY turned on thinking about Brad wiping his sweaty arm pits??

    …dayum! just picture brad taking off his shirt, lifting up one of his arms, muscles flexing and all bare-chested and supple….YOWSA!

  • what a joke

    LoL@ him naming the ONLY movies Pit was semi-decent in. he didn’t want to know about TROY, meet joe black, The devil’s own, Seven years in Tibet, Benjamin Button? Is it strange that he played crazy in the 3 movies he was actually good in?

  • sam

    Does anyone know where I can find the Pictures posted in yesterdays thread? You know, the ugly pictures of Brad Pitt that were deleted? I want to show my girlfriend. :lol:

  • sam

    @[~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]: no , she “makes” him get tattoos. Have you seen his tattoos? Laughable.

  • Robin

    This would be the same Brad Pitt who is notorious for not showering or cleaning his home for weeks? Giving out advice on how to be perpetually clean with a baby wipe? Brad, dear, I know you probably think those baby wipes make you smell fresh so you don’t ever have to shower, but that’s only because no one would tell you otherwise.

  • sam
    never mind. i found them. rotflmao !

    # 12 jaye @ 06/02/2009 at 3:15 pm The baby wipes freshener he’s talking about is when showering is not possible, he’s NOT advocating it as a substitute for bathing when bathing is possible.

    And yet the nitwit trolls are making a federal case out of Brad’s statement.(shaking head) Sad!

  • OATH


  • To Sillyme really stupid you

    OATH @ 06/02/2009 at 4:23 pm

    I know it is hard for you who hate Brad to accept that THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW he and Angie always say the greatest things about them I have never heard a person WHO HAS MET THEM say anything negative. I realize that you sole source of information is the tabs. So that in itsels shows how ignorate you are. Do some research. Brad/Angie are well liked. Well respected. Everyone who meets and works with them say so. So I will take that information for Truth then the place you are getting your info. You go on evrery Brad/Angie site sayinf the same dumb stuff. Why give someone you don’t like so much of your time.. You are just sad on so many levels.

    That’s called character acting. It’s very different from a certain sitcom actress who keeps playing a same TV role on every single B-romcom she gets cast in thanks to her notoriety of being ex-Mrs. Pitt. Oh and while always hiding half of her face with $50k hair.

  • val

    OATH is back, what a joy (sarcastically of course)……Fugly needs support somewhere please go support her. Her movie bombed, she is still single, the laughing stock in the industry, fuglier than ever, and still pining for good old, handsome, sexy little Missourian Bradley Pitt. Man with all her issues you’d think trolls on an Angie and Brad thread would be nonexistent….geesh!

  • samara

    i have always wonder if the rumors about brad body order is true, then how come he still gets these gorgeous women..i just dont think angie , jen or those other women would put up with it

  • the real lou

    # 42 samara @ 06/02/2009 at 4:46 pm ….If certain people really want to believe Brad smells,knock yourself out. :roll: Kind of makes you wonder what this world is coming to when grown ass people believe tabloid fodder without blinking an eye.

  • boogie

    not a big deal what he said about the wipes, everybody with kids uses them for everything so not original at all, so what is so funny about it, actually nothing he says is ever original, he is just lame!

  • ok

    Brad is cool.

  • Marieme

    The way I see it everyone – both men and women – kinda crushes on Brad once they meet him. How could they not! Sooo cute.

    Not sure what more needs to be said about Brad’s overall happiness and peace. I was at one time laughing and really annoyed by the recent issue of In Touch’s re Brad and Ange’s alleged tense and unhappy body language. As if! Total B.S.! They totally twisted this completely romantic night into a bunch of doo-doo. Cheap rag!

  • Alex

    Brad..dork XD
    stealing baby wipes from his kids…

    he is a proud papa, always talking about his kids, he must be in a strange place, being a dad at this age for first time…

  • what a joke

    @Besane: character acting? he was horrible in those films. he can only do movies where he plays the crazy guy and he’s not the lead.
