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 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.
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.
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 is the star of the upcoming 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, and 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.
This supermodel is no stranger to vice, but it seems that she may be taking a more healthy approach to life since she was snapped with an e-cigarette last year.
Best known for his nationally syndicated radio show, E! News, and American Idol, Ryan Seacrest is known to be a recent e-cigarette convert after he was spotted with one at Paris Hilton’s Halloween party.
Robert Pattinson is, of course, best known for playing the vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie series Twilight. He has previously been seen smoking traditional cigarettes, but was spotted with an e-cigarette on the set of his new movie Cosmopolis.
Nikki Reed is another Twilight star who uses e-cigarettes, and was spotted vaping with her co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in Vancouver in 2009.
At 60 years old, Tom Petty has been a singer and songwriter since 1976 and has an incredible five best-selling platinum albums under his belt. In an interview in Parade magazine last year, he talked about getting a little more health-conscious – and how he’s chosen to make use of e-cigarettes instead of the more harmful analogues.
