15 Celebrities Smoking Cigarettes

It was still cool to smoke in the 1990s. Smoking was a task left up to the cool kids who weren’t afraid to not do their homework and talk back to the teacher. Smoking was so accepted that film and television characters were commonly seen smoking cigarettes. Most notably there was Carrie Bradshaw, the petite chain smoker of Sex and The City. However, eventually even here character quit. Due to the effectiveness of anti-smoking campaigns, there has been a notable decrease in cigarette usage in film and television. Nowadays, in New York City, smoking isn’t allowed in parks or bars. This is a positive thing, of course, since smoking cigarettes is horrible for your long term health. I think we all know that, so if you want to smoke cigarettes that’s your choice and nobody’s business.

However, I think the way we’ve steadily moved away from portraying cigarettes as cool has made it a bit jolting when we see celebrities smoking. We’re used to seeing them on television and on the big screen, often portraying wholesome characters. I was a bit shocked, although apparently this is common knowledge, to find out President Obama is a bit of a chain smoker. Are you surprised any of these celebs indulge in some smokes?

      I'm surprised at the singers on this list; you'd think they'd be doing all they could to keep their vocal cords/throat/lungs clean and in good shape.

      Not real sure that Michelle’s is smoking an actual cigarette.

      Does not appear that Obama is quite as green as he has the media protray him to be!

    6. Several of those people were not smoking cigarettes, they were using electronic cigarettes. Which are far healthier and becoming cool like cigarettes once were. I wonder if President Obama really quit smoking. Doctors usually say, don’t try to quit when in stressful situations. I can't imagine a more stressful job than president.
