If you were asked if you know a famous person who vapes, who would you think of right away? Maybe, maybe not – but in fact, quite a few celebrities have given up smoking and vaping in public. In this post, we’ll get to the bottom of how far vaping has spread among celebrities at home and abroad.
Actors using e-cigarettes
Cigarettes have long been considered the ultimate coolness factor in film and television. Actors like John Travolta in the film Grease (1978), Jude Law in Alfie (2004), Robert De Niro in Goodfellas (1990), and many more have shown how cool you can look smoking. However, with the growing anti-smoking movement since the mid-2000s, the cool, smoking movie hero (or villain) image has become increasingly reprehensible. However, the celebs found another way:
One of the first celebrities to vape in public is Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic & The Revenant). As early as 2010, he used e-cigarettes in public and has been a strong advocate for alternatives to harmful cigarette consumption since then.
Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) is also one of Hollywood’s most famous vapers and was even seen in the 2010 film The Tourist with an e-cigarette. Other well-known vapers from the film industry are Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Jack Nicholson (Shining), Katherine Heigl (First Time), Ben Affleck (Argo), Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious), Tom Hardy ( Venom), Mischa Barton (The Basement) and many more. British TV presenter Richard Hammond (Top Gear & The Grand Tour) and The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus is well-known vapers.
And another person who is very well known (especially among series fans) is a passionate vaper: the actress Sophie Turner, known for her role as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones. For example, she was seen wearing her Juul on the series finale set (far right – no idea what’s going on with Bran…)
The actors all have one thing in common: They enjoy their e-cigarettes in public and don’t bother to hide them – cool!
E-cigarettes among musicians
Smoking was and is also widespread in the music industry; for example, icons like Bob Dylan or Slash stood on stage with cigarettes in their mouths. But e-cigarettes have also spread more among musicians in recent years. A change that is also favored by non-smoker protection laws, since in many concert halls, there is now a ban on smoking for musicians while vaping is allowed.
Two of the most well-known vapers in the music industry are Katy Perry and Bruno Mars, both of whom have made public appearances with their e-cigarettes. Other well-known names include Christina Milian and Ronnie Wood (guitarist for the Rolling Stones).
Prominent vapers in Germany
There are also some celebrities in Germany who prefer to use e-cigarettes instead of traditional tobacco. An example is Udo Lindenberg, who was reported to have switched to e-cigarettes as early as 2014 (source: Welt).
Even celebrities recognize the advantage of the e-cigarette
So what do we learn from this? Even Hollywood starlets recognize the health benefits of e-cigarettes and make no secret of it. More and more famous people are using e-cigarettes. Vaping is likely to become even more widespread.
