Electronic cigarettes have exploded into the pop culture scene in full force over the last few years. Don’t believe us? Well, you might not know it, but dozens of celebrities, athletes and politicians have taken up electronic cigarettes over traditional cigarettes. We’ve taken the time to check out five famous people who swear by their eCigs and have kicked smoking to the curb in favor of vaping. Check out our list of five celebrities who vape:
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
The male star of blockbuster films Titanic, Inception and Shutter Island is a self proclaimed electronic cigarette user who has kicked regular cigarettes to the curb. In fact, DiCaprio’s publicist has confirmed the rumor that the star was an eCig user after he was spotted several times enjoying a vape between shooting scenes for one of his movies.
2. Johnny Depp
Captain Jack Sparrow, or as he’s better known, Johnny Depp, is also an avid eCig user who enjoys a vape just about anywhere! The next time you watch The Tourist, a film that stars Depp and Angelina Jolie, keep an eye out for the scene on a train where Depp powers up his very own eCig. Depp also uses his eCig on personal time and has been seen with it quite a bit in public.
3. Kevin Federline
You might remember Mr. Federline from his short marriage to pop star Britney Spears. The father of two stands by his decision to quit smoking and now enjoys vaping on his eCig. This further illustrates the reason that many parents switch to eCigs: they’re less harmful to children and those around you due to the fact that they produce no secondhand smoke.
4. Katherine Heigl
“You blow out water vapor so you’re not harming anyone around you and you’re not harming yourself. I’m essentially humidifying the space.”
These words from the Grey’s Anatomy star were issued on Late Night With David Letterman when Katherine fired up her eCig to show the audience how harmless it was. Heigl has been known to advocate eCigs for people that continue to smoke but want to quit in favor of a better alternative.
5. Lindsay Lohan
Although she hasn’t made some very good choices in the past few years, starlet Lindsey Lohan is actually a fan of eCigs: a smart decision among many bad ones! She’s been seen countless times using her electronic cigarette in public and has actually been rumored to have forgone cigarettes completely in favor of her new eCig.
