Which Male Celebs are Smokers?

Tom Cruise smokes? That is very surprising to me. He strikes me of having classic anhedonia, the inability to experience pleasure in anything. Those people would not understand the sublime experience (at first) of smoking.

I don't think George Clooney smokes and I can't remember him ever smoking for a film/TV role. He certainly could have smoked in that movie about Edward R. Murrow....just about everyone else in the cast did.
I've worked with Hugh Jackman and he does not smoke, at least at that time. Also worked with Viggo Mortensen and he does....a lot, unfortunately.

I agree with R1 and R2: I would bet that a clear majority of actors (and actresses) smoke, even some that seem to epitomize beauty and health.
I KNOW the OP asked for males, but here's a tiny sample of female celebs, who seem (to the masses anyway) so "beautiful", but smoke like a chimney:
Paris Hilton, Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Aniston, Christina Applegate, Katie Holmes, Victoria Beckham, Kate Hudson, Catherine Zeta Jones, Cameron Diaz, Whoopi Goldberg (heavy), Alicia Silverstone, LIsa Kudrow, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Darryl Hannah, Shirley MacLaine, Demi Moore, Penelope Cruz, Charleze Theron, Neve Campbell and on and on and on......
I'm sure males smoke just as much if not more.

I wouldn't be surprised if 70-75% of them smoke. It gives them 'courage' to go out on stage, helps them concentrate so they can memorize their lines, yet calm them down at the same time.

Brad Pitt seems like a nervous person.
In a recent interview, the interviewer described him as extremely fidgety, always tapping his finger on a surface and always jiggling a leg.
People who jiggle their leg and fidget drive me crazy.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck both allegedly quit via hypnotherapy sessions. If they're still smoking these days, they're hiding it well from the paparazzi.
Clooney was reportedly a casual smoker up until about 10 years ago or so. Numerous reports that he would bum smokes off ER crew members. Reportedly, when he took the lead in Out of Sight, he asked that the part be rewritten as a non-smoker. His reason was that he had just quit and didn't want to be tempted back. Most recent report I read, he claimed he never smoked *ever* in his life.
George Eads went to great lenghts to claim he grew his porn stach a few years back as a way to cope with his having just quit smoking. What growing a mustache and quitting smoking have to do with each other was never clear. But he didn't stay quit for long because I personally saw him lighting up upon leaving a movie theater just a few months after those reports came out.

But apparently he stopped after they split. One of the requirements for his marriage to Katie Holmes was that she had to give up smoking.

George Clooney used to smoke, but the story goes that he quit when his aunt Rosemary got lung cancer.
SJP still smokes, no matter what she says. I've seen her out and about in NY.
Matthew Perry and Jason Bateman both smoke like chimneys, another first-hand account. They're really good at hiding it from photographers.
The Mad Men women - January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth "Xenu" Moss all smoke. Th Mad Men actors have to smoke herbal cigarettes in their scenes because real cigarettes would violate workplace anti-smoking regulations or some such thing. I read an interview with Jon Hamm and he said the herbals actually smell and taste even worse than regular tobacco cigarettes, if you can imagine!

Oh, that's bullshit. Or partial bullshit. Maybe some of them don't smoke real cigarettes, but do you actually think that if a scene in a movie or television show requires an actor to smoke, that they're not allowed to by some regulations?

I don't know if she's since quit, but Elizabeth Taylor was still puffing away as late as 1996. A friend of mine worked at San Fran General at the time, and La Liz visited for some AMFAR thing. He said she required a special private room where she could suck down ciggies without anyone photographing her, and she smoked like a chimney. And yes my friend, a huge queen, kept the paper coffee cup smeared with red lipstick that Liz used to toss her ciggie butts in. He still has it, but he threw the butts out because he complained that they were stinking up his living room LOL!

Matthew Broderick has been interviewed as saying he has given up smoking but still falls back occasionally. He also said his wife is much worse than he is with the smoking.
If you watch any interview with SJP, she is always chewing gum. That, the fact that she's skin and bones and her skin is leathery is a good indicator that she is a heavy smoker still.

r71 Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner made the decision that the actors would smoke herbal cigarettes on the set back when the show first went into production. That means that even real life smokers had to smoke herbal cigarettes when the scene required smoking. That was reported many places when Mad Men first premiered in summer 2007.
But it's my understanding that a tobacco vs herbal cigarette decision is at the discretion of producers and/or the director. California indoor smoking rules have lots of loopholes for TV/film productions.
For example, the actors on Good Night and Good Luck, which was filmed in California and set almost entirely indoors, smoked tobacco cigarettes. There were several reports that David Straithorn (who played Edward R. Murrow) got the prop master to roll the cigarettes his character smoked out of pipe tobacco since it was milder and thus less harsh on his throat.
