With long-term side effects like yellowing of the teeth and premature aging, you’d think a celebrity would be the last person to ever pick up a cigarette. But no, many of them have been known to puff away 20, 30… even 60 cigarettes a day! And if you think that’s shocking, you may be more surprised by which celebs have actually happily indulged in the habit.


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez had been known to smoke everything from Fuentes to Padrons to Cohibas, but since having her babies, the dutiful mommy has kicked the habit.

Denzel Washington

Denzel Washington has played a number of smokers in movies (Alonzo in Training Day, Frank Lucas in American Gangster) but who knew that he actually smoked in real life?


Rhi-Rhi doesn’t seem to be the least bit shy about publicizing her smoking habits, be it with cigarettes or more…

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher used to smoke a whopping 40 cigarettes a day before meeting his health-conscious ex-wife Demi Moore. But after reading The Easy Way To Stop Smoking by Allen Carr, Kutcher claims to have quit cold turkey… though stealthy photogs still snap him sneaking a smoke here and there.

Eva Mendes

You might’ve never guessed it, but Eva Mendes is in fact a regular smoker.

Britney Spears

Britney is so often photo’d with a cig in her hands, many have dubbed her “Puff Mama.”

Do you remember that controversial photo of her 2-year old son playing with her Marlboro Lights?

Naomi Campbell

“Supermodel” and “smoking” seems to go hand-in-hand, but did you ever think Naomi Campbell would be one to indulge in the habit?


Requests for Marlboro Lights (via his tour rider) have led many to believe that Jay-Z is a smoker, though no photographic evidence really exists. Jay-Z has, however, been photo’d smoking cigars.

Simon Cowell

TV producer Simon Cowell is one of Hollywood’s moderate smokers. He blasts through about 30 sticks a day.

Amber Rose

Giving up the smokes was one major lifestyle change that Amber Rose had to make after learning of her pregnancy. Before then, it seemed she was always photographed with a cigarette in hand.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Before becoming a health freak, Beyoncé’s bestie Gwyneth Paltrow was a hardcore chain-smoker. Gwyneth says, she picked up the habit in high school and continued it right on up until 2003, when she found out she was pregnant with her daughter.

Meagan Good

Since marrying DeVon Franklin, Meagan Good says that spending more time with her mom, letting go of the negative people in her life, and quitting smoking are now her main priorities.

Kate Moss

Supermodel Kate Moss is infamous for smoking 4 packs of cigarettes a day, a habit that many believe is beginning to take a toll on her once glorious skin.

Kanye West

It’s long been speculated that Kanye West enjoys the occasional cigarette, but no one seems to know for sure. Do you think this cartoon depiction of him smoking in his “Heartless” video provides the proof?

Gisele Bündchen

Gisele Bündchen has very openly expressed her dislike for sunscreens and other synthetic skin care products, once calling them “poison.” Yet it seems the supermodel has no problems inhaling cigarette smoke on a regular basis…

  • DebLA

    Paltrow still smokes between yoga, $200 health smoothies and visits to her fish monger.

  • yumyum

    If we don’t have evidence that Jay-z or Kanye are smokers, why are they on the list? I’m sure there were two more cancer suckers you could have found to hold a definite place.

  • Where did they dig that picture of gisele from? She looked like she was smoking something harder
