Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Respond to Drama Over How Much They Bathe Their Kids

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are having a good laugh over all the hubbub the internet made about how much they bathe their kids. 

ICYMI: The subject came up during their recent interview on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. “When I had [newborn] children, I also didn’t wash them every day,” Kunis said, according to BuzzFeed. “I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns—ever.” And Kutcher added, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”

Social media, of course, did its thing with these comments: A roaring debate emerged over how much parents should bathe their children—and also themselves. It was exacerbated when Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard came out with a similar stance on their kids; “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink,” Bell said, per BuzzFeed. Then Jake Gyllenhaal ignited the fire when he told Vanity Fair, “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times…. There’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.” Since when did…not bathing become so in? 

Who knows, but Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are taking all of this lightly (as they should). On August 11 they posted a video of themselves—wait for it—bathing their kids, and they were giggling the whole way through.

“You’re putting water on the children? Are you trying to melt them?” Kutcher said faux-incredulously, as Kunis laughed. “Are you trying to injure them with water? This is ridiculous! What’s going on?”

“We’re bathing our children,” Kunis said, to which Kutcher responded, “That’s, like, the fourth time this week! Four times this week! Their body oils are gonna be destroyed! What are you trying to do?” Watch this for yourself in the post, above. Whether you’re pro- or antishowering, you’ll definitely be laughing.
