It has been more than a decade that electronic cigarettes, better known as the e-cigarette or simply e-cigs, are warming the shelves in the market, but it lacked presence in Hollywooduntil pretty recently.

Being one of the first realistic substitutes of traditional cigarettes, some Hollywood celebrities have accepted this new assortment and have also stepped forward in accepting endorsements.
“The Tourist,” was one of the prime breakthroughs, where leading actor Johnny Depp was spotted e-smoking in the film.
