On the Red Carpet: E-cigarettes Stealing the Limelight in Hollywood
Move over tobacco, e-cigarettes have taken a leading role in Tinseltown, with more and more A-listers catching on to the trend and switching from traditional cigarettes to smoking electronically.
Hollywood has always had a passionate love affair with smoking. Just think of Audrey Hepburn flaunting her famous, black cigarette holder in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or the King of Cool himself, Steve McQueen dangling a fag from his lip in “Bullitt”. However, tobacco’s Hollywood heyday seems now to have come to an end, with an increasing number of celebs puffing away on e-cigs instead.
Johnny Depp and Kate Moss are most definitely doing it. So are Leonardo DiCaprio and Lindsay Lohan. There has been rumors that Britney Spears and Bradley Cooper are at it as well. One thing is for sure though; the e-cigarette has become Hollywood’s new sweetheart. And where did all this start? Possibly back when “Gray’s Anatomy” star Katherine Heigl lighted things up, literally speaking, during an on-air interview with David Letterman.
Here’s the e-cig having a Hollywood moment – have a look for yourself!
