Top Story: E-Cig Celebs – 5 Famous People Who Love To Vape


Vaping is an alternative to traditional cigarettes that has recently become popular in Hollywood and across the US. Numerous super-famous celebrities have hitched a ride on the vapor train. Some because they’re looking for a way to stop smoking and others because vaping is seen as a way to receive the effects of nicotine without ingesting the harmful chemicals and tar that’s included in traditional cigarettes (ecigarettes use nicotine juice and water vapor instead of tobacco smoke). Check out five crazy-famous celebrities who been seen vaping around Tinseltown and beyond.

1. Katherine Heigl

The blonde beauty from Grey’s Anatomy is a proud vapor, even vaping an ecigarette during an appearance on David Letterman in 2010. The actress started smoking cigarettes at 25, and tried gum, two rounds of Chantix and the “cold turkey” method in hopes of kicking the nasty habit. Nothing worked–that is, until the romantic comedy star picked up her first ecig. She’s been an advocate of vaping ever since.

 “I’ve read things that say [nicotine in and of itself] isn’t that bad for you, that it’s a stimulant like caffeine,” Heigl told Letterman. “I’m choosing to believe that.”

2. Kate Moss

One of the world’s most-recognized supermodels, Moss was frequently photographed with a cigarette in her hand when not starring in Calvin Klein commercials or shooting a print ad. Like many models, the famous waif likely used cigarettes to curb her appetite and therefore keep her weight down. These days, the rock star wife, mother and designer has stopped smoking and has started vaping. She is often photographed with e-cigarettes.

3. Leonardo DiCaprio

While hardly paparazzi fodder, DiCaprio has been photographed with his trusty e-cigarette since 2010.

4. Courtney Love

fuck you! make me real!

Perhaps the most famous rock star widow of all time, Love has undoubtedly made her own lasting impression on the music industry, and used to smoke traditional cigarettes like a fiend in addition to using other substances. Her addictions in the mid-’90s were such there was talk of her baby daughter being put under social services care. Nowadays, Love is all about the ejuice, and even filmed a commercial for e-cigs. Never one to shy away from controversy, in the commercial Love is criticized by uptight socialites who tell her to take her “dirty, filthy cigarette” outside. The Hole front woman responds, “Relax. It’s a f*cking [e-cig],” much to the shock of the socialites.

5. Lindsay Lohan

The famous actress and infamous party girl used to get caught smoking cigarettes by paparazzi on a pretty regular basis. She has since kicked her addictions to numerous substances, tobacco included. Now Lohan is photographed going over scripts while smoking an e-cigarette.

Other celebrities are enjoying the perks of e-cigs, such as Stephen Dorff, who like Love, has filmed commercials for vaping products. It’s no surprise, as vapor won’t wreck havoc on skin and overall health like traditional cigarettes will, and celebrities are notoriously obsessed with staying youthful for the cameras!
