“We used to play this game to see who could go the longest without showering,” Jason told Live! With Kelly and Mark co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos. “I think about it now and I’m like, ‘Dude, how disgusting. What were you thinking?’”

As for who would win? “Brad,” Priestley shared. “Always Brad.” However, the 54-year-old noted that it’s unlikely Brad has stuck with the same routine.

“I don’t think he does that anymore,” Priestley said “but back then he could go a long time without showering.” Jason and Brad, 60, were roommates back in the ‘90s when they were both up-and-coming actors. The duo lived in a two-bedroom apartment located in what Jason called the “really cr**** part” of Los Angeles, with a third friend.

In his 2015 memoir, the ‘Tru Calling’ actor recalled that the pair were basically “broke” as they struggled to find acting work.

“We lived on Ramen noodles and generic beer — the kind that came in white cans labelled, ‘beer,” Jason wrote in the book, “and Marlboro Light cigarettes.” But after Priestley was cast in ‘Beverly Hills’, ‘90210’ and Pitt shot to fame in ‘Thelma & Louise’, the two lost contact with each other. Still, Jason has nothing but fond memories of the Oscar winner.
