Feeling lonely and strange when you vape? Don`t be. Not only have a million Americans and 300,000 Brits switched to e-cigarettes, the device is also sweeping the celebrity world. Here`s a few of the A-listers you can expect to see with an e-cigarette in their mouth.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo was famously snapped with a cigarette while cycling and from a distance, the little device fooled many people into thinking he was smoking the real thing. He was actually using a e-cigarette and he`s been photographed several times since with it.

Leonardo is now a vaper of ecigarettes And with an e-cig!

Johnny Depp

This major Hollywood star was seen with an e-cigarette in his latest film, `The Tourist`, where his character demonstrates how it`s actually an electronic device instead of burning tobacco. Johnny Depp is actually a longtime smoker of regular cigarettes, but it`s not known yet whether he`ll choose to switch to the `e` variety after trying them out on set.

Charlie Sheen

The ex-star of Two and a Half Men recently took to the road on his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour, and as he faced fines if he was caught lighting up in many of his venues, he took to e-cigarettes as a natural solution. He`s now promoting his own brand, called Nicosheen.

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl is the star of the romcom ‘Life As We Know It’ and she was one of the first celebrities to demonstrate her e-cigarette – on the David Letterman Show, no less. She convinced David to try a puff, and says that it`s helping her to quit smoking for real.

Phil, Josh and Jake Harris

Josh, Jake and their father, Phil Harris, are famous for the Discovery show called The Deadliest Catch. Phil died in 2010 from a stroke brought on by his heavy smoking habit. Josh has begun promoting e-cigarettes in order to kick his own habit and help others with the same problem that ultimately killed his dad.
