Amid all the glitz and glamour of this year Golden Globes ceremony, an electronic cigarette narrowly stole the show from a waterlogged Red Carpet!
As the show opened with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, of 30 Rock and, Parks and Recreation fame, comically pointing out the Hollywood ‘unsaid’. Their attention was soon drawn to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who came in for a few jokes for her construed move away from her traditional home on television, to film.
So as the camera moved round to the star, sat next to Reese Witherspoon, Louis-Dreyfus remained nonchalant, puffing away on her electronic cigarette, under a pair of thick rimmed sun-glasses- comically brushing off the TV star’s attempt at mocking her new roles in film.
The actress whom is probably best known for her role in Seinfeld as Elaine Benes, certainly seemed to be channelling her inner Allison Dubois, as the room erupted with laugher.
Unfortunately she didn’t go on to win in either of her nominations, for her role in Nicole Holofcener's "Enough Said", so instead of returning to her e-cigarette, she was then pictured 'drowing her sorrows' by eating a very large hotdog.
However her e-cigarette was the talk of social media, making for a great 21st century Golden Globe moment!
Leonardo DiCaprio can’t keep his hands off his electronic cigarette during Golden Globe Ceremony
Leonardo DiCaprio has once again been spotted with his electronic cigarette. The Hollywood star was caught puffing on his electronic cigarette during the ceremony of the Golden Globes this past week at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
The actor was able to circumvent LA’s notoriously stringent anti-smoking policies by exclusively using his electronic cigarette as he nervously waited for his nomination category- best actor in a musical or comedy, to be read out.
DiCaprio is a notorious e-cigarette advocate and has been spotted around Hollywood using an e-cig since 2011. This latest public showing defiantly shows that the e-cigarette aficionado hasn’t lost the taste.
Leonardo’s night wasn’t complete however; as the star went on to win the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy, for his role in Martin Scorsese’s biopic of disgraced stockbroker Jordan Belfort, in the “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Although at the outset of the evening, considered an outsider, DiCaprio’s portrayal won over the judges and the star of Titanic was visibly delighted, delivering a brilliant acceptance speech.
This was DiCaprio’s second Golden Globe, after his success for 2004’s “The Aviator”.
