Famous Electronic Cigarette Smokers
In the recent romantic thriller, The Tourist, star Johnny Depp spends the majority of his screen time puffing away on an electronic cigarette. No matter where he is, on trains, boats or even in police custody, he takes soothing drags on his trusty smokeless cigarette. In one scene on a train, he sits calmly reading a book while enjoying his electronic cigarette. He seems more at ease with his smokeless cigarette than he does with his beautiful co-star, Angelina Jolie. Mr. Depp is just one among the many stars in the world of entertainment who have made the switch to electronic cigarettes.
There are many reasons these celebrities have made the switch. They spend a good portion of their time in places like movies sets and concert venues where tobacco smoking is prohibited. What better way to chill between takes for a major star like Leonardo DiCaprio than to relax with a smokeless cigarette. Certainly these big name celebrities are not going to be hoofing it down the block and out to the street to find a smoking permitted area. It is hard to imagine Mr. Decaprio standing out on the sidewalk in the rain to enjoy a tobacco cigarette at his favorite night club. In terms of a celebrities safety, privacy and convenience, electronic cigarettes make a lot of sense.
Even big name athletes like Jose Canseco have become users of the electronic cigarette.
Athletes depend on being in peak health to perform at their best. Can you picture Jose Canseco running the base paths or chasing down a fly ball while gasping for breath because he smokes tobacco cigarettes. By smoking electronic cigarettes instead an athlete can prevent nicotine withdrawal and maintain peak efficiency for their chosen sport. Readers would be surprised to learn how many big name athletes, especially outside of the United States where smoking is less frowned upon, are tobacco users. The electronic cigarette provides these athletes with a much safer way to enjoy the smoking ritual. The electronic cigarette allows them to preserve their lungs, heart, circulation and other important body functions and perform at a much higher level than if they were smoking tobacco cigarettes.
The list of celebrities who are using the electronic cigarette is growing daily.
Among those who have been seen using the electronic cigarette are Johnny Depp, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jose Canseco, Kevin Federline, Danny Bonaduce, Entourage’s Kevin Connolly, famous musician Tom Petty, American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest, Twilight’s Nikki Reed, Taryn Manning and super model Kate Moss. Several major stars have stated that they switched to the electronic cigarette in order to set a better example for their children. They also wanted to protect their children from second hand smoke and as we know, there is no second hand smoke from the electronic cigarette.
Nothing is more amazing than Katherine Heigl’s stunning recent appearance on the David Letterman show. During her interview on the Letterman show, Ms. Heigl started to use her smokeless cigarette and a surprised Letterman exclaimed he had never seen or heard of them before. Ms. Heigl offered it to Letterman to try and being a good sport, he obliged her after stating he had quit smoking years earlier. Three drags latter Letterman exclaimed. “This is remarkable. This ought to get it done, my friend.” Heigel went one to say she had been using her electronic cigarette for four months and it fully satisfied the ritual of smoking and her nicotine craving. The conversation concluded with a discussion of the dangers of tobacco smoking and how much safer the electronic cigarette was as a tobacco replacement. Letterman’s final comment was,”This is really cool. Congratulations.”
The splash made by electronic cigarettes among celebrities is reaching such major proportions that even Charlie Sheen has gotten into the act with the recent announcement of his soon to be released electronic cigarette line named “Nicosheen.” In partnership with Sheen is former baseball star Lenny Dykstra. These are just two more of the many celebrities who have made the switch and jumped on the electronic cigarette bandwagon. Of course, the real reason to use the electronic cigarette is to help you quit smoking tobacco and preserve your health but it sure is nice to be in famous company.
