Being a parent teaches you all sorts of life lessons – not just how to change a diaper. For Brad Pitt, fatherhood has taught him how to MacGyver his way out of embarrassing body odor.
Here’s what Brad shared with Eli Roth during filming for Tarantino’s Inglorius Basterds:
“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,” Pitt’s costar and pal Eli Roth told PEOPLE at Saturday’s Spike TV Guys Choice 2009 in Los Angeles, set to air on the cable network June 21 at 10 p.m.
“After a scene, Brad had to get next to me for a close-up shot, and he said, ‘Damn, you’re ripe,’ ” recalls Roth, 37. “I said, ‘I didn’t have time to shower.’ He said, ‘Baby wipes, man, baby wipes.’ “
When it came to Pitt’s pits, Roth said the leading man explained, “I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits.” Pitt further said, “Man, I’m getting [peed] on all day. I don’t have time to take a shower.”
Nice tip, huh? I’m considering forgoing showers completely and opting for a few cases of baby wipes. OK, not really.
Still, this priceless piece of fathering advice should definitely be put in a book along with tons of other hacks for making fatherhood simpler for dudes. The probelm is, no dudes would probably read it — unless you filled it with how-to illustrations of hot bikini babes.
