Ever wonder which male celebrities smoke? Here is an abbreviated all-male list. This is not specifically implying these men are current smokers. But, they have been seen at one point using tobacco.
Even if some of these men were non-smokers in real life, they might have been users in their movies or music videos. Since things are not shot perfectly in the beginning, more than one take is necessary. That means more nicotine. After the movie or video, it's very possible they experience withdrawal just like everyone else.
