His cigar of choice is the La Gloria Cubana Wavell, known for its rich and bold flavor profile. He’s been spotted smoking on the set of The Expendables franchise, which is fitting for the cigar-smoking tough guy he’s known to play.

  1. Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson is a big fan of cigars, as we can see from his role in the movie Kingsman. Jackson prefers the H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon, a cigar notable for its complex flavor profile, including hints of cedar and coffee.

  1. Danny DeVito

Actors are known for leading glamorous and luxurious lifestyles that make them highly sought after for their fashion sense, and taste in literature, music, and their hobbies. Smoking cigars is one of these hobbies. While smoking is becoming rare today, cigars are becoming less common on set too, but they are never too far away from these icons of glamour and elegance who continue to make them part of their on-screen image. While these actors continue to rely on cigars to help them unwind and get through long days on set, it’s essential to remember that smoking in real life will have bad health consequences. As cigars continue to be one of the must-haves for celebrities that love the indulgences life has to offer, it’s still important to understand the health risks of smoking and avoid them for our personal well-being.
