In a world full of mysteries and suspense, sometimes our imaginations can’t help but go down a wild path. Certain patterns or cues might trigger concerns about the possibility of someone being a serial killer. For instance, a person with a knack for odd behavior, a shady past, and a chilling vibe. It’s no wonder why someone might jokingly (or seriously) wonder if they’re in the presence of a serial killer. Of course, assumptions like these should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, it’s part of the human fascination with the unknown.

Reddit users recently sparked a bizarre conversation about which celebrities would make the most unsurprising serial killers. People jumped in with their twisted sense of humor. Suggesting famous people who have that eerie vibe or play dark characters a little too convincingly. Leave it to Reddit to turn even the darkest topics into a bizarrely entertaining discussion.

Some of the replies were quite surprising. One Redditor suggested Jared Leto, saying, “He’s the kind of guy who would spout some pretentious nonsense while killing, like ‘I release your soul from this wicked flesh so you can be reborn.'” Hilariously, even the Property Brothers got a mention. Someone cracked a joke, saying, “New floors… but never pull them up.”

Most likely, the Redditors commenting haven’t actually hung out with the celebrities they’re discussing, although a few might claim otherwise. A person even singled out Shia LaBeouf. Going as far as stating that, according to his ex-girlfriends, he’s genuinely unstable and prone to violence.

Unfortunately, the conversation dragged in other celebs too, like Joel Osteen, Tom Cruise, Kevin Spacey,  Ellen DeGeneres, Quentin Tarantino, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Take a look at celebrities who look would make the most unsurprising serial killers according to Reddit users here.

Redditors Think These Celebrities Probably Smell Bad

Some celebrities, including Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Lizzo, Jake Gyllenhaal and Brad Pitt have admitted to not showering daily or using deodorant. Though they have habits that may not fit everyone else’s “norm” of showering, some have shared alternatives that keep them clean.

Not all celebs are skipping soap and water, though. Like many of us, rapper Cardi B doesn’t quite understand why so many celebrities have shared that they don’t bathe regularly. In 2021, she tweeted “Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy.”

Also chiming in the shower talk was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. “I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb,” he tweeted. “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work.”

Despite what celebrities have shared or not shared about their hygiene, people on Reddit took matters into their own hands. Users gathered on a thread and shared who looks like they smell bad in the world of celebrities.

Some of the names on the list aren’t necessarily on it for having foul body odor. It’s unlikely that many of the Redditors commenting have been around the celebrities that they are commenting on (although some claim to have been). There are celebrities named for their alleged overuse of perfumes, colognes, scented creams, or patchouli or things that they’ve said about their bathing habits.

Take a look at celebrities who look like they smell bad, according to Reddit users.
