I decided that I needed to get rid of bad habits, replacing it with something better. I began to "smoke" as a child and smoked until I got married to Sandra (Knight) in 1962. We both decided to get rid of this addiction, and I have not smoked 10 years.”
But in 1973, Nicholson starred in the film The Last Detail. "I played a minor official, a lover of cigars. I smoked throughout the filming real Cuban cigars, which are undoubtedly the best. After that, I lit a cigarette again until I started to have a passion for golf."

Famous Actress Helen Mirren Smoking
About Helen Mirren : Dame Helen Mirren, DBE (born Helen Lydia Mironoff; 26 July 1945) is an English actor.
She has won an Academy Award for Best Actress, four SAG Awards, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards.
Mirren was born Helen Lydia Mironoff in Queen Charlotte's Hospital, Chiswick, West London. Her father, Vasiliy Petrovich Mironov (1913–1980), was of Russian origin, and her mother, Kitty (nee Kathleen Alexandrina Eva Matilda Rogers; 1909–1996), was English.
Mirren's paternal grandfather, Colonel Pyotr Vasilievich Mironov, was in the Tsarist Army and fought in the 1904 Russo-Japanese War.
He later became a diplomat, and was negotiating an arms deal in Britain, when he and his family were stranded during the Russian Revolution. The former diplomat became a London cab driver to support his family.
His son, Helen Mirren's father, changed the family name to the Scottish-sounding Mirren in the 1950s and became known as Basil Mirren. He played the viola with the London Philharmonic before World War II, and later drove a cab and was a driving-test examiner, before becoming a civil servant with the Ministry of Transport.
Mirren's mother was from West Ham, East London, and was the 13th of 14 children born to a butcher whose father had been the butcher to Queen Victoria.
Mirren considers her upbringing to have been "very anti-monarchist". The first house she remembers living in was in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, when she was two or three years old, after the birth of her younger brother, who was named Peter Basil after his grandfather and great-great-grandfather.
Mirren was the second of three children, born two years after her older sister Katherine ("Kate"; born 1942). She later lived in Leigh-on-Sea.
