You may already be aware that Leonardo DiCaprio – nominee for the Best Actor award at this year’s Oscars, not to mention the eventual and worthy winner – has a thing for vaping. He also does it in public and has been spotted vaping at various events.
Now it seems his co-star in The Revenant – the film Leo won his first Oscar for just a few days ago – has got in on the act as well. Tom Hardy uploaded a great pic to his Instagram account before the Oscars began, showing him suited and booted and vaping as well. And why not? Maybe he thought it would bring him luck, as he’d received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his turn alongside Leo in The Revenant. Sadly, he didn’t win, but no doubt he and Leo celebrated together following DiCaprio’s win that night.
Vaping seems to be a big thing among celebrities and movie stars. We’ve seen plenty of them doing it of late, clearly trying to give up smoking and opting for one of the best ways to do it. While we didn’t see Tom vaping at the Oscars ceremony itself, it’s good to see some famous people using e-cigarettes to help them quit smoking. We’ve no idea what Tom had in his e-cig or whether he and Leo have swapped tips on vaping, but they’ve both clearly got a thing for it.
In today’s world of social media and instant uploads to the internet, it’s easier than ever to keep up with all the stars who have opted to quit smoking in favour of vaping. Have you come across any – either online or in real life – you didn’t previously know about? How many other Oscar winners and nominees had a vape on the big night, we wonder?
