Brad Pitt has reportedly given up using soap in favour of more environmentally friendly alternatives.

The 49-year-old actor has apparently began using a home-made concoction of lemon, water and apple cider to wash himself.

A source told Bang Showbiz, “Brad says he’s read up on the toxins of soap – especially the antibacterial ones – and feels that using them and antiperspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the ageing process in humans.”

The source also claimed that Angelina Jolie isn’t fully supportive of her fiance’s new hygiene regime as he smells, “like a sheepdog”.

They continued, “Angelina has revolted – and their kids even started calling him ‘stinky Daddy’.

“Angie agreed to humour him only as long as they weren’t on the same continent.”
