Celebrities & The Edgy Allure of Smoking

Once, it was all about green juices and yoga mats for the stars, but today, they’re reviving an age-old habit: smoking. Smoking, in its many forms, has been a conspicuous aspect of celebrity culture, weaving through the tapestry of entertainment history with a persistent presence. Whether it’s the traditional elegance of cigarette smoking in old Hollywood, the distinguished air of cigar aficionados, the contemplative nature of pipe smoking, or the modern trend of vaping, celebrities have often been at the forefront, shaping and reflecting the smoking habits of their times.

 During the Golden Age of Hollywood, smoking was portrayed as a glamorous and sophisticated activity. Many famous actors and actresses were often seen smoking on screen, and this helped to normalize the habit and make it appear fashionable. The tobacco industry capitalized on this trend and used Hollywood stars to advertise their products, further reinforcing the idea that smoking was a desirable and glamorous activity.
