What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cigarettes? If it’s cancer, that’s because countless studies show smoking increases your chances of developing the deadly disease. According to Health Canada, every 11 minutes, a Canadian dies from tobacco use. That means more than 37,000 Canadians die as a direct result of cigarettes each year. That doesn’t stop celebs from developing the nasty habit though. Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen, Brit Pop musician Lily Allen, model Kate Moss and socialite Nicki Hilton, among others, have all been spotted lighting up.
Considering maintaining their looks is part of their job, these stars might want to consider butting out. Besides the bad health effects, smoking also ages you and can make skin wrinkly, saggy and pallid. Not exactly a celeb-worthy look.
