– Actor Jason Priestley lived with Brad Pitt in a two-bedroom apartment in the ’90s
– Brad Pitt was not big on hygiene and would go a long time without showering
– The two actors lost contact after Jason was cast in Beverly Hills, 90210 and Brad shot to fame in Thelma & Louise
Here is what happened:
Jason Priestly and Brad Pitt were roommates back in the ’90s in a two-bedroom apartment located in Los Angeles. According to Priestley, they were both broke and lived on Ramen noodles and generic beer, as well as Marlboro Light cigarettes. In his 2015 memoir, Priestley recalled the pair’s struggle while trying to find acting work.
Priestley revealed that he and Brad played a game to see who could go the longest without showering during their time together. He mentioned that back then, Brad could go a long time without showering and would usually win the game. He shared this anecdote while appearing on “Live! With Kelly and Mark” cohosts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos.
Despite the unhygienic habits of the past, Priestley assured the cohosts that it is unlikely that Brad has stuck with the same routine all these years. He noted that the pair lost contact with each other after Priestley was cast in Beverly Hills, 90210, and Brad shot to fame in Thelma & Louise.
