Smoking has just got to be one of the most disgusting things around, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. So why do so many celebrities smoke, especially women who have so much to lose? Minnie Driver used to have perfect skin and complexion, but if she keeps smoking cigarettes, who can say how that’s going to turn out?
To be fair, Minnie is rumored to have stop smoking in real life, but has still portrayed smokers on the silver screen. We all know the consequences of showing children and impressionable youths images of people smoking: they pick up the habit in order to look cool, and next thing you know, they’re addicted for life, or close enough. While I’m no fan of removing cigarettes from old movies digitally, I do believe that directors, producers and actresses such as Minnie Driver should show a little leadership and stop showing people smoking in movies.
