Jake Gyllenhaal prepares to answer a question during a special screening of his new film The Guilty held at Harmony Gold on Saturday night (Sept. 18) in Los Angeles.
Amid discussions over his new film, which will premiere on Netflix on September 24, the 40-year-old actor was once again asked about his opinion on the whole bath debate.
Jake was previously asked about his hygiene status after the topic went viral, and he told Vanity Fair that he found “bathing to be less necessary, at times.”
Now, Jake fully admits that he was being very sarcastic about it all.
“I don’t know what it was, it was an answer to a question where I was being sarcastic and ironic and it has followed me around,” he shared. “Unfortunately I showered before I came here so I’m sorry about that.”
