Aaron Sorkin showers up to eight times a day

Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin takes up to eight showers a day whenever he suffers from writer’s block to help revive his creativity. The Social Network and The Newsroom scribe has installed a small shower unit in his office to keep his creativity flowing after realising a quick refresher allows him to collect his thoughts.
He says, “I take six to eight showers a day. I’m not a germaphobe, it’s not like that. I find them incredibly refreshing and when writing isn’t going well, it’s a do over… I will shower, change into new clothes and start again.”
