Actor and filmmaker Jason Priestley recently shared a surprising revelation about his time as Brad Pitt's roommate, shedding light on the Hollywood star's hygiene habits. According to Priestley, during their time as roommates, Pitt wasn't particularly focused on personal hygiene, leading to a peculiar game they played.
"We used to play this game to see who could go the longest without showering," Jason revealed on Live! With Kelly and Mark. Reflecting on the practice, he expressed disbelief, saying, "I think about it now and I'm like, 'Dude, how disgusting. What were you thinking?'" Despite the unorthodox game, Pitt consistently emerged as the winner. "Always Brad," Priestley added, acknowledging Pitt's victory in the hygiene challenge.
However, Priestley, now 54, clarified that it's unlikely Pitt maintains the same routine today. "I don't think he does that anymore," Priestley remarked, suggesting that the habits of their early days have evolved over time. The two actors were roommates in the 1990s when they were both aspiring actors, residing in a two-bedroom apartment in what Priestley described as the "really crappy part" of Los Angeles.
In his 2015 memoir, Priestley recalled the challenging financial situation they faced during that period, relying on Ramen noodles, generic beer, and Marlboro Light cigarettes. Despite the financial struggles, both actors eventually found success, with Priestley landing a role in Beverly Hills, 90210, and Pitt achieving fame with Thelma & Louise. Although their paths diverged as they pursued their careers, Priestley holds fond memories of his time with the Oscar-winning actor.
