Believe it or not, chewing on cigarettes is a widely employed — though not exactly scientifically proven — way to quit smoking!
Kristen Stewart may have been spotted smoking a cigarette Set. 28 on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman, but we’ve learned it is possible she’s trying to kick her nasty habit! Earlier this year at Comic-Con, Snow White director Rupert Sanders said he met with Kristen on the set of Breaking Dawn, and he recalled seeing her chew on a cigarette while she tended to an on-set wound in her trailer.
Now hear us out:
There is a widely circulated — but not totally substantiated — belief that chewing on cigarettes can help curb a smoker’s addiction. The theory behind this is that the cigarette’s bitter taste will help the body, and brain, to reject the substance and fight off cravings.
Even if this wasn’t Kristen’s intention, we really hope she is trying to quit. Besides the fact that smoking is detrimental to her own health, Kristen also has hoards of impressionable fans who really look up to her as a role model. While she may be taking on more adult roles outside of the Twilight saga, it’s important she continue to set a good example.
