Hollywood loves cigar. We have seen A-list actors sporting cigar in some of the all-time Hollywood blockbusters.
“Some people smoke; I smoke cigar”, said Ron Perlman, the famous American television actor and voice artists, approbating his love for cigar.
The star of “Ghost” and “Blame It on Rio”, Demi Moore once remarked, “There’s something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It’s like a fine wine. There’s a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar.”
