Let’s face it, when you think badass the first thing that comes to mind isn’t always celebrities and hollywood, but that doesn’t always mean that there aren’t some pretty badass celebrities out there lighting up. Most people put them up on a pedestal but that doesn’t mean they don’t light up just like the rest of us. Whether they’re on the big screen kicking ass and taking numbers or are kicking back at their pricey beach house, you know these true cigar men of Hollywood are smoking some of your favorite cigars.
1. Michael Jordan
The former Chicago Bull and all time entrepreneur has had his fair share of cigars in the past. Jordan has been smoking cigars since back in his ball days, especially after games, and that sure hasn’t changed. He has previously stated that one of his favorites is the Cuban Montecristo but doesn’t mind dabbling into different cigars.
2. Arnold Schwarzenegger
The Terminator himself has been known to be quite the cigar aficionado. Regardless of if he is prepping for a new role or governing a state, this man has always known his way around a cigar shop. Schwarzenegger has previously stated that some of his favorite cigars to indulge on include the Hoyo de Monterrey and the Romeo y Julietas.
3. Leonardo Dicaprio
It should come as little to no surprise that Hollywood’s ultimate playboy is well involved in the cigar world. Dicaprio, who not so long ago starred as the infamous badass Jordan Belfort in the Wolf of Wall Street, has been smoking cigars for many years now and is known for enjoying them alongside a nice chilled drink.
4. Jack Nicholson
If we’re going to classify Dicaprio as the ultimate playboy than it would only be right to name Jack Nicholson as the godfather of Hollywood. Nicholson, a well respected Hollywood veteran, is one of those names in the cigar world that has been infamously known for indulging from time to time for quite some decades. He has previously stated that he strongly favors cigars such as the Montecristo and Romeo y Julietas.
Cigars are a big thing in the business world so it comes as little surprise that rapper turned entrepreneur Jay-Z is quite the aficionado of cigars. He is such a fan of cigars that he partnered with Cohiba to introduce Cohiba Comador Cigar. Although he does have his own specific cigar, Jay-Z still states that his favorite cigar to smoke is either a Monecristo or a Partagas.
6. Sylvester Stallone
Rocky himself has been known to indulge in a cigar or two from time to time. When it comes to Stallone’s cigar preferences, he’s stated that he would ultimately prefer to smoke a smaller cigar as oppose to a bigger one. He has previously stated that he prefers to smoke a Robusto as oppose to other cigars.
Although she may not be a true cigar MAN of hollywood, this Caribbean beauty, that has been known for a numerous amount of infamous hits, is definitely in touch with her Caribbean background. Rihanna has been known to smoke cigars in some of her music videos and even more during her spare time.
