"What are you going to do, charge me with smoking?" asks actress Sharon Stone, as she lights a cigarette in Basic Instinct. This scene is the most known scene implying smoking in movie history. Hollywood glamor and smoking go hand in hand. Smoking has taken all varieties of forms in major Hollywood films - from seduction to give the character of the region and even for recreational drugs. little cigars

Stone is one of many women portrayed in the movie, who smokes in a seductive way. 1967 graduate of the film has a young Dustin Hoffman seduced by the time Mrs. Robinson, a senior with a cigarette in his hand. In this scene, Hoffman said nervously, "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me ... are not you?" Finally, Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, who smokes a cigarette in front of her and the character of John Travolta's participation in the "twist" dance contest at Jack Rabbit Slims. Thurman is also featured on posters and covers for VHS, DVD and Blue-Ray from Pulp Fiction with a cigarette in his hand.

Where women show that smoking in a seductive way, men are shown in the film with an edge to them - a little rough around the edges. With Al Pacino in Scarface smoking cigars with his two brothers from the slums of the Saints to smoke cigarettes after leaving the church, it really shows how "bad ass", these characters. Clint Eastwood plays Blondie in the 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and a cigar in his mouth all over the "Mexican standoff" at the end of the film. Blondie did not flinch and he dropped his cigar as he shoots a bad guy, Angel Eyes, to the grave.

More subtle smoking scene includes Robert De Niro in 1990 critically acclaimed film Good fellas and organized crime. De Niro's character, Jimmy Conway, a member of the local crowd, and in one of the most famous scenes, it is De Niro's smoking in the bar. Nothing is said or heard (except for a cream background track "Sunshine of Your Love"), but you can see him smoking a cigar with shifty eyes, and you can tell that he begins to trust, and ultimately, to think about the "beat "someone in his gang.

In addition to the smoking of cigars and cigarettes, there is a Hollywood image of smoking other things like drugs. For example, in the movie Friday, Ice Cube, Chris Tucker and characters, Craig and Smokey, marijuana smokes on the porch. Smokey convinces Craig to smoke marijuana and ending hallucination. Just as on Friday, in the 2001 film Training Day, Denzel Washington is the nature of the character tries to convince Ethan Hawke to smoke marijuana. The character of Washington is a senior officer of the drugs that can help advance the character Hawk in his career. Due to pressure from Washington, the character of Hawk finally gives up and smokes a pipe with marijuana, only to find that he had been penetrated by PCP.

Finally, and perhaps the most peculiar, because in a film for children, is a Disney animated film Alice in Wonderland. During her adventures, Alice encounters a caterpillar that smokes a hookah. Caterpillar continues to smoke themselves into a butterfly before the eyes of Alice. Specifically, the iconic scenes of smoking that people of all ages can remember.

Despite the global knowledge of their effects on health, smoking always and probably will be always, which is a sign of sexuality and masculinity in the movies - or at least one of the major pop-culture.
