Jason Priestley: Former roommate Brad Pitt would go ‘a long time without showering’

Smells like Brad’s pits.

Jason Priestley and former roommate Brad Pitt used to challenge each other to see who could hold out on showering the longest.

“We used to play this game to see who could go the longest without showering,” the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum revealed on Tuesday’s episode of “Live! With Kelly and Mark.”

“I think about it now and I’m like, ‘Dude how disgusting, what were you thinking?’”

When asked by Kelly Ripa who “went the longest” without bathing, the “Wild Cards” star quickly replied, “Brad. Always Brad.”

“I don’t think he does that anymore, but back then he could go a long time without showering,” he added.

Giving some insight into how he and the A-lister used to live, Priestley recalled he, Pitt and a third individual “living in a two-bedroom apartment in a really crappy part of [Los Angeles].”

When asked by Ripa’s husband and co-host Mark Consuelos what the group kept in the fridge, Priestley simply said “beer.”

In May 2014, Priestley dove into his living situation with the “Bullet Train” star, 60, in his self-titled memoir.

The 54-year-old actor recalled coming home to his North Hollywood apartment one day to find a “tall skinny guy” sleeping in his bed, per the Hollywood Reporter.

Despite Pitt being an unannounced visitor, the two hit it off and Pitt became the third roommate in their two-bedroom spot.

“We were all broke,” Priestley wrote, recalling the time before he landed his role on “90210” and Pitt made his big break in the 1991 film “Thelma & Louise.”

“We lived on ramen noodles and generic beer — the kind that came in white cans labeled BEER — and Marlboro Light cigarettes.”

However, their friendship hit an impasse in the early ’90s when both actors found success.

“Our careers went in such different directions that we sort of lost touch with each other,” Priestley told HuffPost in a 2017 interview.

“Brad went off and was making movies all over the world, and I was sort of stuck in one place making a TV show, and it was back in the days before computers.”

Priestley added that their fame “tore apart” the group of friends they shared.

“The fact that the two of us went off and got strangely famous — we had a pretty good group of friends and all of a sudden we all sort of dissipated, and it was sad.”
