Kate Beckinsale was caught this week smoking a cigarette just moments after taking a whiff of a nasal spray. Apparently, Beckinsale is the kind of smoker who lights up even when she has a cold—and that’s usually a bad sign.
Beckinsale recently talked to the Daily Mail about her smoking habit. Apparently, she started puffing when she was 16-years-old and has only quit once, when she was pregnant with her daughter and had to. Here is why Beckinsale believes she can’t quit:
“I’d be insufferable if I didn’t smoke. You’d have to push me off a balcony I’d be so boring.”
This reminds me of a friend who tried to reason to me a few years ago that she couldn’t quit because, “I always meet guys on smoke breaks. It’s the easiest way to strike up a conversation: ‘Can I have a light?’ How will I ever meet anyone if I quit?”
