Johnny Depp Smokes Electronic Cigarette in “The Tourist”

Johnny Depp Electronic Cigarette

Over the holiday season I spent time at my parents’ place along with my two brothers and nephew.  One afternoon we decided to all go out to the movies, and without any other interesting movies in the theater at the time, we settled on seeing “The Tourist”, starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.

This movie, set in Italy, is a suspense movie about mistaken identity.  I won’t go into much detail, as to not ruin any of the twists and turns in the plotline or anything, but it was a decent flick.  Jolie’s character meets Depp’s character, Frank Tupelo, on a train in Europe.  Frank is smoking an electronic cigarette and asks Jolie’s character “Does this bother you?  It’s electronic.  No smoke” or something like that, and continues to puff away while inside a train car.  He exhales and points out to Jolie’s character that there it only emits vapor, no second-hand smoke, and even presses the tip of the electronic cigarette to his arm to show her that it doesn’t burn.  Throughout the movie we see Depp’s character continuously puffing away on his e-cigarette, and only once in my recollection in the movie does he smoke a real tobacco cigarette.

A portion of the train scene can be seen below:

There you have it – another big name spreading awareness of vapor cigarettes.  If you’re a reader of mine, you know that electronic cigarettes are something that I am truly passionate about — can’t say enough good things about them — and to have another celebrity endorsement (even though this one was just fictional, in a movie) provides a huge boost for these wonderful devices.  I do wonder if Depp smokes on e-cigs in real life or if this was just something for his movie role, but either way, vapor cigs just got more exposure thanks to him.

It wasn’t long before the holidays (when we saw The Tourist) that I started this website, and once the aforementioned scene on the train came on and Depp was seen with an e-cig, my dad let out a chuckle and elbowed me in the ribs and asked me if I knew what brand he was smoking.  I didn’t have an answer for him at the time but I’ve found out through some searching on the web that the Johnny Depp electronic cigarette brand is called Smart Smoker.  I hope to get my hands on one of their kits and have a review up for you someday.

As always – thanks for reading, and keep on vaping!

    I had the same experience! I began smoking e-cigs last year, and was the first among my friends to e-smoke, and when I was watching The Tourist with some friends they were like “Hey, Johnny Depp’s smoking one of those, too!” If it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me!
